A Good Anvil Does Not Fear The Hammer!
Making a living building bicycle frames is a tough business. To be successful you have to rely on your skills and equipment to get the most out of your valuable time and labor. You simply cannot afford to have your tools hold you back!
Anvil fixtures and tooling are built with the craftsman in mind. They are precision tooling designed specifically to allow the professional frame builder to work with speed, efficiency, and accuracy. The easy to use designs allow the builder to avoid lengthy and difficult fixture or jig setup and minimize mistakes so you can spend your time building frames and not adjusting fixtures. Anvil Bikeworks understands framebuilding and we understand your needs.
A few words about materials and construction:
All Anvil fixtures and tooling are built with the highest quality materials. All fixture bases and other components that require dimensional accuracy and stability are made using US made Mic6 tooling plate or 17-4 Stainless Steel. Despite our design decisions to overbuild our products, these materials, while more expensive, provide a fixture that is dimensionally stable despite changes in temperatures during the build process without being too heavy or cumbersome to use.
To ensure you’re getting your money’s worth out of your investment for years to come, we go the extra step and have all our fixtures hard black anodized (milspec MIL-A-8625, Type III, class 2) and sealed for long life and toughness and use all stainless steel fasteners. These materials choices keep your tools looking new for years to come and prevent rust & corrosion from damaging your investment. Nothing looks worse than uncoated tools corroding or rusting away when your customers are looking around your shop. In addition to providing an armor coating, the hard anodizing eases cleaning, is virtually stain proof, and maintains a professional appearance that you and your customers will appreciate for years to come. You take pride in the appearance of your frames and now you can take pride in your fixtures!
The flagship of our products, the Super Master Frame Fixture is simply the best frame fixture you can buy, combining unparalleled accuracy with the fastest setup and huge frame standoff (14-inches) for access and ease of use. Check out its page for more information.
In 2003 we introduced our Journeyman Frame Fixture. The Journeyman is a completely new design that performs all the functions of the Super Master Fixture at a much lower cost. We’re really excited about this fixture and its lower cost, lighter weight, and ease of use makes this the perfect fixture not only for professional builders and mass production, but its affordability makes it possible for the passionate amatuer or hobbyist builder to still own one of the best fixtures in the business.
Anvil Bikeworks also offers tooling for tubing prep and other associated frame fabrication requirements. This includes our unique Main Tube Miter System, Seatstay & Chainstay Fixtures, Anvil Fork Fixture, and other miscellaneous tools to help you bring your build process to a whole new level of efficiency and ease.
Anvil Bikeworks will continue to expand our product line to become your one-stop shop for all your fixture and tooling needs.
