Good for you brohter nice find. I hope you laid it horizontal orr the homebound voayge..that whole G (gravity) and M (metacentric heigth) formula thing might hurt ya in a small truck, i.e. lower is better. All the best,

Hi, Have not weighed it yet, New toy, heard it was in my area 10 years ago, but no one knew where, then someone posted the blower in the background on craigslist , I bought the blower a 24 inch buffalo forge, and the conversation turned to anvils, and he said his dad had one over a 1000lbs, i asked if it had a hole in the middle, when he said it did, i knew what he had, we went to dads house who had it in the flower garden, a nice guy who decided it was time for someone else to enjoy it, and couple hours later it was loaded, picture is it at home still in the bed of the truck, sunday got it into the shop, I need to get the history on it, thought I would share a pic, must have some carbon it rings nicely it measures 41" long, 8" wide, and 25" tall thanks

I knew laying it down would be best, but knew when i got home i didnt have the manpower to stand it back up, so loaded it as pictured, I do have heavy eyebolts in the 4 corners of the bed for hauling heavy items, and had it tied down, then ran a heavy strap around and thru the bridge of the anvil and back around the hitch receiver just in case, when got to shop slid it down oak planks onto pipes to roll into shop office area where concrete floor, the main working part of shop is gravel and will have to get the forklift running (another project) to get it in place and to put it on the scale to weigh it, thanks
