  1. "Anvils in America", page 303, Serial Number 50,001-60,000 = Date --1900 (+/-) 2 years.
  2. If the horn was a critter’s face and the heel was the back of its head and described as a biologist or MD would, then the serial number was on the Right Front foot.
  3. This anvil sold ($2,100) in central PA -- 486lbs, no visible markings except a serial (?) number on the RF foot.
  4. Reminder -- Hydrogen gas is released. Poor ventilation + unclipping a "sparking" electrode = BOOM, which could be deafening. Disconnect the charger first.
  5. Question -- in the OP's pics, there is a hardy tool near the horn, does it have a specific name? and function? I can guess a function. Thank you.
  6. Here's the on-line link for the recent PBS' Nova -- Metals. Pretty well done. Enjoy.
  7. On some post vises, I've seen 2 opposing wedges (rather than a single wedge) to tighten the vise and top mounting bracket.
  8. I clamped the empty bottle under the weight of a 15 ton crawler loader bucket and used a 4 ft cheater on the wrench and it came right out. .
  9. Sycamore has interlocking grain, which makes it difficult to split. Flat-sawn boards are prone to twist. But, as a big block, sycamore is a very good wooden base.
  10. Integral bolt-down lugs, maybe a "50" cast into the r. front foot -- looks like a Fisher. Good luck.
  11. Left most -- Cobbler's pliers Bottom middle -- may be a combo -- button shoe hook & boot pull
  12. I think it's for horse foot work -- a buttress trimmer.
  13. There is a fixed base being offered from FLA on a popular buy/sell site for $395. I sent you a message. Please check your message "buiton". Thank you.
  14. Basic chemistry -- add acid to water (not vice-versa).
