    Yeah it was slightly repaired the description said, I wasn’t too worried about it since it wasn’t nearly as gnarled as my 100 Vulcans “horn” lol Haha, yeah I’m definitely going to have this one for my own personal use. Nothing too crazy just light work and finishing heats

    I found this little 60 pounder on Etsy from another smith in the state. I have a thing for either small anvils, or gigantic monster ones. I have to get a decent stump for this one yet, my foreman said he might be able to find me a good oak log about 2 feet high. I’m really looking forward to trying this guy out, should be perfect for smaller things like bottle openers and such. Included in the picture is a hammer from a barn out in Maine I found whilst perusing. Cheers!

    Yeah that much I know, really only intend it for certain things. Not necessarily a work horse.

    1899 Fisher

    Picked this 98, or 89 pounder up off of eBay earlier this month. Beautiful face in great condition. As far as measurements the face is 6x10, stands 5 1/2 inches tall. Really can’t wait to find a suitable stump for this beaut! Don’t mind the slight rust marks, they really aren’t deep, just surface gunk. And a quarter for comparison in the second photo. Cheers all!

    Show me your anvil

    Just arrived today, 86 pounder made in 1899! Not the only anvil in the collection but definitely one of the coolest, the face is in great condition. Should clear up with a good brushing though.

    2 Dog Face... or Dog Head ?

    They look nice! Reminds me of Apollo at the Forge of Vulcan by Diego Velázquez

    Wagon parts

    So I've done the green stick test on the round stock. But I've never encountered wrought iron before so I'm not sure if this is or not. There's definitely a layered look to the grain though .

    Wagon parts

    I haven't done the bend test yet, I was saving that one for last. And as far as the pattern it's hard to say. It's an orange peel texture on parts of it, and then on other parts it's as if nothing has happened other than some surface rust. As soon as I do the bend test though I'll for sure update.

    Wagon parts

    So does anyone know for sure what material these are? I know it's a long shot, but I'm just looking for some reassurance.

    Wagon parts

    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew what material these two pieces are made out of. They are both from a wagon of unknown age, I believe the round stock is iron, possibly wrought? And the bar which is about 3/8 of an inch thick I have no clue on. I've spark tested them both and the sparks from the round stock were ranging from short to long in a reddish orange color, with two or so forks at the ends. The bar had a lighter spark with some forks at the end. Any help is appreciated, thanks all:)

    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone uses wagon parts for blacksmithing?

    Saw Mill score?

    Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to do as far as securing it. And it measures 2 1/4 wide, 7 3/4 wide, and 12 inches long. These were taken at the striking face, the narrower of the two ends.
