  1. Anvil does not need to be dead flat. Please NO MILLING!
  2. In my opinion a restored anvil should be only lightly wire brushed and still have the nice dark patina.
  3. S/N 537 should be from the first year of production, 1900. Looks like its in excellent condition!
  4. So much of communication between people, especially with strangers, is in body language. There are both pros and cons to not being able to see the other participants. One of my rules is that if I wouldn’t say it directly in person you don’t say it. It is very easy to say derogatory things to or about a person when not facing them. Going for an inexpensive poor quality speaker phone for your conference room is false economy.
  5. The specification brochure you provided a link to tells you every thing you need to know. My understanding and limited experience is Monel can be forged but it is tough stuff even at high temps, not cutting edge hard though.
  6. Looks like a cast iron anvil. Do a rebound test before buying!
  7. Found a before and after picture. There must have been some underlying issue! With 2 garages on the ground floor the rear wall would have to be a very well constructed shear wall!
  8. We did fine here, some broken trinkets and decorations, lots of stuff fell off shelves in the garage. You can definitely tell the direction the waves came from. If you look close you can see the double garage door under the big windows. I think the stairs used to up to the front door.
  9. The inbound Glenn highway and what used to be a 2 story house. Miraculously I have not heard of any fatalities or serious injuries. There must have been some unknown issues with those poor peoples house. The minimal damage to residential housing is a testament to modern building engineering.
  10. Here is an aerial image of Vine road Frosty is talking about!
  11. Should be from 1904. As long as the rebound is good and it rings good dont get hung up on measurements. The were made individually so each one has unique characteristics.
