I just finished the stand for the 260 pound Nimba Centurion anvil I recently ordered.  The stand is made from 3X3X1/4 inch angle iron, 6X1/4 flat bar, 12X3/8 flat bar, 3X1/4 flat bar, 2X2X3/16 angle iron, 3/4 square bar, and 2 inch round bar.  I used four six inch long 3/4 inch fully threaded bolts to level the stand and raise it to attach the casters.  I used 3 inch casters for moving it around the shop.

Looks good.  Let us know how stable it is when you start pounding on it.

Having a narrow base may be a problem.  If my math is correct it will take 52 pounds force to tip it over pushing at the top of the anvil, and 72 pounds pushing at the top of the stand.  When I get the anvil in a month or two I will let you all know how it works out.

I got my anvil several days ago.  It is really nice!  The anvil is very stable on the stand.  I have about a month before the average daytime temperature will hit the mid 90s, with humidity around 90 as well.  It’s not much fun working the forge with those temperatures.
