  1. thanks !! both a couple interesting observations ... JT
  2. hehehe... will these aren't my anvils just a couple photos I found on the net.. JT
  3. you could just buy one of these really heavy anvils that no one really needs.... and solve the problem of someone walking away with it !! lol or try forging on your knees using your buried anvil that would be a real chore to dig out and lift up and run off with !!! lol JT
  4. I found this anvil that was said to be used with shoeing horses .. looks like a stake anvil. does this look to be home made ?? or foundry made ?? anyone have thoughts on this one ?? JT
  5. there were 180 items auctioned off at this auction almost all were blacksmith items mostly anvils but also forges, and vise's both post vise's and bench vises.. here is another anvil that was sold it was 90 lbs. and sold for $1750.00 + fees and possibly tax's !! there was this Fisher no. 6 double screw vise with 8" jaws that sold for $1650.00 + fees and possible tax's .. I did a online bid on this one but didn't get it.. it was the only item I bid on.. JT
  6. was anyone at this auction yesterday and see this one in person ?? it was listed as a 930 lb. RIS Miller Anvil 1 of 3 made.. sold for $7250.00 + fees and possibly tax's. there were many many anvils auctioned off there yesterday ...
  7. Austrian Anvil

    Marc is correct here.. I posted my 573lb. in reply to the op.. JT
  8. well another one of these Clark Trucloader forklifts followed me home on Friday. it was a 4 hour round trip drive. once again these are the smallest ride on forklifts ever made and can drive through a man door. they weigh about 2500 lbs. and have a lifting rate of 1000 lbs. and take up about as much room as 2 trash cans.. these don't pop up often and when they do... they seem to sell quickly.. I bought this one with the idea of having a parts truck, but once I looked it over its actually in pretty good condition..
  9. I just picked up this old Woodward & Rodgers sensitive drill press.. its been converted some what and does work.. but for $43.14 I couldn't pass it up.. probably from around 1903.. here are a few photos of advertising I found... first ad is from 1890, second from 1899 third from 1902 and forth from 1903.. JT
  10. mini vise

    thanks Scrambler82 !! the vise is only reason I bought the lot... not sure just how long they were made.. not much info to be found about it.. very neat little guy though !! possibly a jewelers vise ? but I'm with you on this one.. just for viewing !!
  11. mini vise

    picked up a collection of mini tools. the vise is marked pat. June 16 1885 H&B..
  12. Well I ended up getting this old 7" swivel jaw bench vise today at a small local on line auction for $211.00 its at least 200 lbs. and 31" long closed and 13" tall.. its a monster looking vise in person.. it has no makers mark that can be seen... G-ManBart told me it looks like a Prentiss vise.. thanks for all the info Bart !!
  13. Austrian Anvil

    nice anvil !! I don't know how to date them either, I have one like it also, that weighs in at 573lbs.
  14. HaHaHa !! that's funny Lou !!
  15. This will be following me home tomorrow !! oh the ease of moving heavy anvils and any other heavy items... even it close tight areas !! this is the smallest forklift ever made !! its a Clark Trucloader !! made from 1945 - 1967... it weighs 2500 lbs. with a lift rating of 1000lbs. and 9 ft. max lift height.. its 28" wide and 52" long not including the forks.. takes up about as much space as two trash cans !! and fits through a man door !! the orange one is mine, the other two are to show the size better.. the man standing next to his is 6' tall..
