  1. Understood Thomas and thank you for your clarifying statements. I have seen similar disparities with serial numbers and actual production on other manufactured equipment. I noticed another thing about these anvils ( in addition to the smaller #4 stamp). The arm and hammer logo on this anvil has the upper arm vertical as with some of the images on the 'net ( not Vulcan) while other arm and hammers have the upper arm horizontal Got me wondering if that was a consistent change, i. e., all anvils from a certain point had the logo stamped a particular way or if it varied depending on who was stamping Not that I'll lose sleep over it, but just something for me to think about
  2. First, thank you. Second, that's Interesting that the closest it can be narrowed to is a 12 year gap. That's better than not knowing at all. I did figure it was towards the end of production since they supposedly only produced around 51,000 anvils according to previous posts on IForge.
  3. Computer less friend just got this nice 115# Arm & Hammer anvil and was curious about when it was made. Does AIA have serial numbers and dates for these? If so, could someone look it up for me? Apparently someone lost the number 4 stamp as they are about half the size of the other numbers Thanks.
  4. What is it?

    I share your opinion Daswulf

  7. It followed me home

    They are Tearing an old building down on the other side of town. Giving away the coal in the bunker. Lots of fines, but I'll sieve them out and use them to help with the fire. Lots of scooping, but it's easier when it's free and for me! Little bit stiff today, but thinking of the forging ahead with it, brings a smile to my face. Oh, that's an 8x10 foot tarp for those wanting to know.

    So we can't say "at your Service" until you find the book. Better hurry....... and welcome by the way......even though kilt wearing may make a UNIX out of you (sorry couldn't resist)
  9. Moving a heavy anvil

    Make your anvil stand with provisions for adding wheels or the ability to at least lever up one side so you can get rollers under it. I moved my 350 pound anvil by levering it onto 1-inch pipe rollers and pushing it across the shop. Obviously engine hoists work as do hydraulic lift tables.
  10. How did you guess, Frosty? Looks like she already knows first position!
  11. Just got this petite 350 pound Peter Wright today and was trying to date it - and the help I am looking for is to see if y'all think it has "solid wrought" on the side. If so, It's 1860 or so to 1910. If not, 1852-1860. Here's the pics: I think I might see part of the word "wrought" just above the "0" in the weight ,markings (3 0 14): What say you? Oh, just in case you wanted an overall:
  12. It followed me home

    Saw a craigslist ad for a "196 pound anvil" - and I've been looking for a little bit larger anvil than the 140 pounder I use, so I went to take a look....long story short, came home with a 350 pound peter wright - 34 inches long and 5-1/2 wide face. I put my daughter's 112 pound Queen's Dudley Anvil on top for scale.

  15. Can you ID this found tool?

    Could it be to break open barrels or hogsheads? Or simply a handheld splitting wedge held by one person while another struck it to split wood
