Who did the wood? I was hoping this is what were talking about. I have one, it seems to have cut outs on the top that measures the lip separation.

I made the wood pieces, I also made some wood pieces that are the proper length for 20 round magazines. I think the ideal magazine anvil would be machined as a single piece that one could slide into the magazine body and have a stop to prevent from being inserted too far.


And fit snug enough in the mag body to be used to remove dents from the sides of the mag.

It appears that this would be easy enough to fabricate. Basically two pieces of cold rolled steel welded to a steel bar.

 

  What is the diameter of each of the pieces of steel rod? The diameter of a 45 ACP case? Most likely not since the rounds do not sit exactly side by side in the magazine, in that case a piece of steel rod could be turned on a lathe to that exact diameter.

 

 I would love to tackle this project. Just provide the dimensions and I will give it a shot and let everyone know the results.

Maybe the owner could mic the rods.  I'd guess .010" smaller than a live round.

Yea. I am hoping the owner of "Glen's Mag Anvil" will post that information. Better than taking a "SWAG" at the dimensions. I would try and make the steel bar the size of the inside of a magazine so it would correct any dents or other anomalies in the mag body itself as well a gauge the feed lips from the mag catch hole, and make the bar long enough for both 20 and 30 round mags.

 I hope Catnipman still frequents the board.
