  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.

    What did you do in the shop today?

    Chocolate ice cream + root beer = a brown cow
  5. Reminder -- Hydrogen gas is released. Poor ventilation + unclipping a "sparking" electrode = BOOM, which could be deafening. Disconnect the charger first.

    Anvil identification/value?

    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.
  7. Here's the on-line link for the recent PBS' Nova -- Metals. Pretty well done. Enjoy.

    My first post vice

    On some post vises, I've seen 2 opposing wedges (rather than a single wedge) to tighten the vise and top mounting bracket.

    Vertical forge questions

    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. .
  10. Integral bolt-down lugs, maybe a "50" cast into the r. front foot -- looks like a Fisher. Good luck.

    Recognize these tongs?

    I think it's for horse foot work -- a buttress trimmer.

    Basic chemistry -- add acid to water (not vice-versa).
