  3. Have about a thousand to spend maybe a tad bit more on a anvil, been looking at the nimba titan anvil and a 200# Emerson, I work on a hundred twenty five pound Fisher now and the size is OK but I've worked on bigger anvils ind like the room . Out of the two which ones would you pick in why is there any other ones at that price range to throw into the mix?

    That forge is sold now . There was no markings on it either so I never knew what the maker was . Was very nice though plenty of power and heat . I now have a buffalo hand cranked rivet Forge . Looking back I should have kept that hand pump 1 for the demos just because it was neatier looking

    Put in a new 400 champion blower, nothing wrong with the old Buffalo but the 400 puts out more air . Shops been doing very well, I would have like to se t up a little different now that I'm a little more seasoned and also I'm giving more classes than anything else so a 2 Bay would have been ideal still might do that so stay tuned...

    knife making class in the Midwest?

    Yeah introduction to blade smithing is two weeks . Then you have to go back and take a one week class to make handles . I can't do 3 weeks in approaching $2000! I need about a one week class that teaches me how to make a knife from start to finish

    knife making class in the Midwest?

    The one at the blade Smith society is two weeks long and they just make blades not the handles from what I understand.
