  1. Peter Wright Farrier

    Interesting piece, I've never seen one before. Wasn't aware PW ever made them in that style. Looks like a real nice score George
  2. Horse shoes with Borium

    Anybody read this story out of Wisconsin? https://www.americanfarriers.com/articles/9798-highway-damage-caused-by-horseshoes-prompts-wisconsin-bill?utm_source=omail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=deu&utm_content=afj&ajs_uid=5578C0141245D5Z Crying out loud what will they think of next?
  3. Good deal. Not just on the anvil but on all the other stuff too. Should serve you well George
  4. Powerfist anvils

    There are plenty of decent American made anvils out there. NC is a poor excuse for a Horseshoers anvil and just barely out of the ASO class. Rather than be redundant I'll refer you to this thread: George
  5. Chunky old swage block and newly fabricated stand

    Nice job. Is it working out good for you? George
  6. New School to Open

    That place has been around for a long time. Was an old railroad shop if I remember correctly. They've been trying to figure out what to do with it for at least 20 years now as yours truly looked into the place back in the '90s. Biggest problem is the location. Johnstown is an impoverished, depressed, rust belt town that died with the steel mill. It has no real hope of recovery. If somebody out there wants to try a school while there are already plenty of them in better places, best of luck to them. George

  9. Anvil dressing - to do's, and not to do's.

    It was often done deliberately. I don't think there was any need to overdo but perhaps from stabbing themselves, or tearing their pants or whatever reason, smiths of yesteryear often blunted their horns. George
  10. Hardie Hole size

    Majority of them are usually 7/8" George
  11. From this vantage point it looks like a Multi Products anvil. They were at their manufacturing high water mark in the 1960's. If not that then I'd guess maybe a Little Tex. George
  12. Age of a 130# hay budden

    First, in the name of St Dunstan and all that is holy get those grinders and weld stingers away from it!!!!!
  13. Help with Hay Budden ID/Info

    You selling the swage block with it? I'd bet if a horseshoer buys that anvil he'd like to get that too. George
  14. Who's made a set of spurs?

    Good job, I like them George
  15. Finished prepping my anvil

    Good job on the block. Should work good for you. George
