  1. Help!

    I second kozzy, you can find work surface if you look for it! About an inch and a half before the Hardie looks okay.
  2. Brian Brazeal Hammer

    Smiths over here make them in that style and sell them as smiths rounding hammers. I have an old 3lb lump hammer I might try to repurpose in that style, I guessing it might be a whole of a lot of hitting without a striker of a power hammer
  3. Show me your Bottle Openers!

    Those are great. Almost too pretty to use!
  4. It followed me home

    That safe is really cool! How on earth did you move it! Mandrel was a steal also
  5. Pricing

    I know plenty of smiths here, just not many locally on IFI! Perhaps I should just point them in this direction
  6. Show me your Bottle Openers!

    Buying it in tins?
  7. Good find?

    That's cool!
  8. Pricing

    I like how you make such a vast place sound so cosy. I feel isolated in the UK with only 70-80miles between IFI members :s
  9. Show me your anvil stands

    My brain hurts....
  10. Ventilation and health

    How high is the roof? With two open sides I'd say there is enough ventilation if your talking an eight foot roof, any less and I personally would want some way of extracting. That being said I use coke whereas coal has FAR more risk because the volatile substances are still in there. I'd say use a chimney anyway; coal is nasty stuff!
  11. Just picked up this beauty!!

    My (second) French anvil is close to 95% rebound. About as good an anvil you can get and the shape in lovely to work on. The feet are starting to go a bit dodgy now though so I try to keep the work light.
  12. It followed me home

    Nice Cat Das!
  13. lovely anvil in Florida

    I'd leave it in the ocean and take periodic dives to check on it!
  14. Armitage Mouse Hole no pritchel hole

    Mine has no original pritchel (alas a poor attempt to retrofit one) and no cutting step but the basic shape is the same (that speedboat hull under the horn that I like so much). Nice find, you'll be hard pressed to find any other marks on something that old. I think mine is a C&A from a bit earlier and I found the C and part of the weight stamp, nothing else
