I was thinking the other day, I have this anvil that I need to afix somewhere so that I can start pounding on it. Trying to beat on that while it is on the floor is not fun on the back.
So I was thinking, which is dangerous, if I mounted 2 chunks of well casing in the driveway about 3 foot apart and level with the ground, I could cap them with something to keep out the water and my feet/leg.
Then, make two more pieces that would slide into the first two when the caps were off. These would be about 3 foot high and have a square of steel on top for mounting an anvil (one post only) or some wood to act as saw horses when both posts were in the ground.
This way, I can use the cutting torch without worrying about burning the garage down because I missed some little hot chunk of fire metal rolling around.
But, what to cap the casing with that would be semi-easily removeable? I could weld a coupling to the end before mounting that would take a brass pipe plug. The brass would not seize up when the casing rusts. It would take a wrench to remove, but still be sorta quick. And the post type mounting would let me walk around what ever I was working on.
