  1. Another place to have propane tanks refilled are campgrounds like KOA, we have a bunch in our area but the propane is a little more per pound there.
  2. Oh and by the way, I think the 85 on the back foot is actually 1885 (with the 18 worn off) so she's a grand old lady and needs to be treated with respect. Later Vulcan's just put the last digit's of the year. Mine has 43 so it was made in 1943.
  3. BTW... Vulcan and Arm & Hammer are two different anvil's, your mom's is a Vulcan the number 10 indicates the weight 100 pounds more or less. I have a #10 which weighs 110 pounds and I love it, very quiet anvils. Hope you have read about not doing any grinding, milling or welding on the hardened face, which is quite thin on Vulcan's.
  4. If it were in the budget, I would go 12 X the length of the existing shop.
  5. I agree, love the table & chairs, especially the roller chair. It would definitely let you know when you've had one too many.
  6. The fire looks good to me, although I use bituminous coal. Not sure with anthracite but like pnut said mound the coal higher.
  7. Not knowing where in the world you are located it's hard to give an idea of value, hence the suggestion to edit your profile to show location. READ THIS FIRST
  8. Welcome to IFI. Might I suggest editing your profile to show your location. You never know how many members are near you and we won't remember those locations in the UK once leaving this post. Have you read this yet? READ THIS FIRST
  9. Maybe a picture of the pieces would lend a clue. I'm thinking sucker rod too.
  10. Welcome DanD, have you read this yet? READ THIS FIRST it will help you get the best out of the forum.
  11. Welcome to IFI Twogunberg, I always suggest reading this to get the best out of the forum. READ THIS FIRST Not knowing where in the world you are located, it's hard to advise where to get propane, hence the suggestion to edit your profile to show your location. Here in NW Arkansas there are several propane suppliers, that deliver propane to our home/shop. We have a 500 gal tank for the house and a 115 gal tank for the shop. For portable tanks we just take them to the propane supplier and have them filled. Here I won't use the exchange program for the small tanks because you never know if you get a full tank or a tank that won't work with a high pressure regulator but have safety devices to use with a BBQ grill.
  12. When we switched over to computers for reports, I think it was around 1990, I walked into the staff room to discover one of the old time officers had white out all over the CRT screen.
  13. There is a huge difference in hammering hot metal being held with tongs on the anvil and this scenario. You are just tempting fate by not insisting on him and you wearing eye protection.
