  1. OK, thank-you Dave. If you would like any dimensions of my hammer, I can try to measure them for you.
  2. It was made post 1910 (they were stamped with "England" after 1910).
  3. Dave, are you aware of compatability of parts with Western Giant hammers. I believe they were made in Canada as Little Giant replicas. I sent Keri a bunch of measurements and dimensions from my 25 pounder but she never got back to me with her thoughts on compatability.
  4. According to Anvils in America, this was made in approximately 1912.
  5. I think your anvil is stamped "302 lbs" for 302 pounds. That stamping looks fairly typical for many Soderfors anvils that I have seen. Fantastic anvil, even better that it was free. Congratulations on the toy and welcome to the forum.
  6. Reminds me of when this one was for sale: I wonder if anyone bought this one?
  7. That looks fantastic! I would be worried of spending too much time outside staring at the front of the shop rather than inside working on projects.
  8. There's a seller on ebay that usually has them for sale. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLACKSMITHING-ROSE-BLANKS-12-Sets-Flowers-Blacksmith-12-Flowers-Roses-Forging-/281120439345?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4174157c31 I have a plasma cutter and 18 ga steel in my shop and I still wouldn't try cutting my own when I can buy these instead. For the amount of time and consumables required, I would rather buy these blanks for under $5/flower.
  9. I forge weld a piece of 1/4" square stock around the stem and then shaping it. This gives a good solid base to seat the rose components against. I learned this from Mark Aspery's Youtube video:
  10. Very nice. What did you do for etching? I have a project coming up using the same steels and I love the contrast you have in your blade.
  11. That is an awesome hammer. If I only lived about 1500 miles closer...
  12. Peter Wright had a few different stampings through their history according to Anvils in America. The one I am most familiar with is as follows: They had the name stamped, usually with "Patent" under the name. "Solid Wrought" was usually stamped in a circular pattern. After about 1910, the word "England" was stamped. Then the weight in the hundred weight system was stamped at about the waist level. There were usually characters stamped on the front of the feet as well.
  13. Looks like a Peter Wright. I'm guessing the 'EN' is part of 'PATENT"
