  • What type of lower anvil for turning an edge?

    I have Peter's wheel and the anvils were from Hoosier Profiles. Flattest one I have is a 48" radius but the edges are rounded/radiused enough that it makes trying to turn an edge very difficult to impossible. So I need to get one that will work. What spec's should I tell Hoosier? I'm thinking a dead flat anvil? Specifically how much radius on the edges of the wheel will be too much?
    Thanks.

    Chris just get a dead flat one with two different edges on it ..meaning one edge is sharp , the other not so..... (about 1 / 1 and half mm radius on it ).
    The one from Hoosier with rounded radius ..... keep that one , it's very good to do return shapes , because of it's rounded radius , it will not dig in to a return radius when you wheeling it from the back . It's also good when wheeling a panel (like a door skin ) that is some what rounded at one end .
    Peter T,

    PS ...I forgot to mention that I use two lower anvils like the one from Hoosier, they have 36 '' radius and 24'' radius
