  1. Would be cool to have someone come up here to help ID stuff. A lot of rusty metal. We had a fire in January of 2014 and lost a lot of stuff. That is partly why of it is strewn all over the place. Well, that, and because Dad had so much land to stash his crap...um...stuff. I guess I'll send a picture of that RR station wagon to Travel Town, ask it's worth and see if they know of any collectors that might be interested. Thanks.
  2. Thank you for that information. It makes perfect sense because it came from my Dad's friend when he closed up his welding shop.
  3. Here are 2 pictures of the railroad luggage cart. Also, here are two more pictures of that area of the Anvil that might have looked like a crack. It is not a crack.
  4. Thanks for the referral to Travel Town. I also have some cart thing that someone just told me is a railroad luggage rack/cart. I'll have to unload the various ropes and chains from it and take some pictures. I'll see what it's worth (maybe) and/or donate it to the museum, if they want it. I just noticed that I need to advertise a lot of this rusty stuff with the word "steampunk" in the ads ;-)
  5. Thanks for the link. I'll contact them. Yeah, I have a lot of rusty stuff around here. I was just looking up some of it on Craigslist and Ebay.
  6. LOL! I have to sell roadgrader, track loader, 1963 Ford Crane Truck, 1976 MGB (sat in field for YEARS), 76 Datsun truck, 87 Ford Diesel Van (high top), portable diesel generator, 82 Wilderness Lite camping trailer (needs lots of work), drill presses, vintage lube oil transfer pumps, several rusty metal farm element wagon/cart wheels, OLD 220 volt arc welding machine that got damaged in a fire (burned stuff fell on it and we don't have 220 to test it), TONS of welding rod (from closure of welding business), commercial steel workshop tables (4' x 10' with big casters, difficult to move), several huge steel fuel tanks, Oster Tom Thumb Pipe Threading Machine 562-C, you get the idea. This doesn't include all of the small stuff. I even have a BOMB CART to sell. Don't ask me where that came from. So, you can see, the Anvil is just the tip of the iceberg. What's particularly frustrating is when someone comes up and asks "how much for that' and I have to ask "what is it"? I'm quickly on the phone to my brother in Washington.
  7. I will wire brush a few areas to clarify marks and make sure no cracks. Not sure I'll do anything else. We are selling 90-acre ranch and I have a ton of stuff to sell. I'm using Craigslist for most things. Do you think Ebay is a better choice for the Anvil? Certainly, I'm not shipping it. I can't even move it! If someone on Ebay wants it shipped, they would have to arrange the whole thing and have the shipper pick it up. If we can't get a good price for it and because it's such a nice Anvil, I told my brothers they would have to move it to wherever we're moving. Still, I prefer to sell everything I can down in the shop and everything scattered all over the ranch. Dad had a good time collecting "stuff."
  8. Thanks, I'll look at that this morning.
  9. Would you please tell me in which picture you possibly see a crack so I know where to look when I go down to the workshop today? I don't see anything that looks like a crack in the pictures. Maybe I will take some additional pictures today. Thank all of you so much for responding. Now, anybody want to buy some tractors, trucks, drill presses and every other tool known to man? (Just kidding) We have our hands full here trying to clear our Dad's "good stuff." LOL Mindy
  10. I am located in San Diego County, California. P.S. I love the "Master Curmudgeon" I don't think there are any cracks but I'll go down and look again tomorrow. I don't know what this means: "Well just here in the United States it can be a factor of 2 in price" I do appreciate the comment about the ring. One neighbor came over and pinged it and commented that it might not be a very good Anvil because he couldn't hear a ring. I was relieved to read your comment. Thank you.
  11. Looking for some advice. We are clearing out my Father's ranch and we have a 1940 Fisher Anvil on a stand. I would like to know what it's worth so I can list it for sale locally. I have a basic idea but want to make sure and thought this would be a good place to ask. It probably weighs about 200 lbs. Thanks for your help. Mindy Oops, I thought I was starting a new post. Sorry if this isn't in the right place. If someone can fix it, please do.
