This is one I picked up and I don't know what brand it is. All I can make out on it is K NN also 136 or 186. It's rather heave so I'm thinking it's 136 but it's my first anvil so if anyone knows for sure what it is please let me know. Not that it matter though. It's mine for life! Yeah those are push rods from a 350 chevy lol. They were handy at the moment.

Thanks Guys. I'll have to have a looksee tomorrow about the rest of the number and such. I gave $350 for it and was happy to find it. The guy I got it from said the ONLY reason I got it was he had three and I lived in the same county as him. He was happy to see someone else taking up the craft.

Number are 2091 02 the best I can tell. Thank again for all the help. I don't know much about the blacksmithing part of it but, if anyone needs help with welding I would be more than happy to help.

I'm thinking also It's gonna get a better mounting. I'm a big ole boy so it's not so hard for me to pick it up and walk off with it. I'd have to beat someone if they was to take it.

Hey, Bad, those aren't pushrods anymore, they are 'smithin tools, I use them for eye punches (with the ball left on), grind the hollow shafts to punch in eye brows, toe nails, fish scales. Great anvil, and blower, liked the gear repair.
I'm kinda big too 6'8" 330lbs, people have to stand on a pallet, to use my anvil.

Great idea on the push rods. I'm 6' 2" @ 245 lbs myself. As far as the gear repair goes it went well. Stainless works pretty well on cast iron. Just takes some time to work the teeth back out so they mesh well.
