Magnetic Anvil Silencer Hack


If you enjoy a spot of blacksmithing or are looking at taking up the hobby then this magnetic hack is essential. See how using a magnet can help silence the ringing noise produced by an anvil when hit.

Traditionally blacksmiths have used metal chains wrapped around the anvil to help silence the loud ringing noise, however by using a smaller, lighter and cheaper magnet you can get the same results very easily.

Tim has used Ferrite magnets which thanks to its low production cost and ability to withstand heats of up to 250°C, make them the perfect magnets for this application.

As shown in the video above all you’ll need to do is simply attach the magnet to the lower region of your anvil, out the way of your blacksmithing!
