  1. I will ring the anvil in the garden three times to ask for comfort to be sent to family and friends.
  2. Yep, and a darned good looking one from the picture. If it passes the ring & rebound test it's worth it for sure.
  3. Oh, I didn't include Vanyel in my search parameter, my bad.
  4. The only place I can get it is my favorite auto parts store, been in business since around 1940 kinda like the old time hardware stores were, if you can't find what you want, there is a good chance it has been discontinued. I need the old Dexron for my '82 4X4 Chevy and '87 Cavalier Z24.
  5. I have to ask what are they? The only thing Google says is Machine Learning.
  6. I don't believe the first one was originally a farrier's anvil. The side clip looks like an add on to me. If you can take a picture of the underside of the foot and tail, they may have a clue there.
  7. A 50/50 mix of transmission fluid and acetone works even better than turpentine and faster too.
  8. Yes, welcome and thank you, if you have read some, I'm sure you have seen my posts advising new folks to read that thread and why. Some folks even think that's my job.
  9. Always...Always chock all 4 wheels both front and behind when working under any vehicle on stands or not. I worked a case where a young man was replacing the rear u-joint on his jacked up large tired 4X4. It was so high he didn't need to jack it up and was able to sit up bent over under it. When he disconnected the driveshaft the truck rolled back and pinned him in a bent over position. He died of positional asphyxiation.
  10. Also a propane plumbers hand torch will bring it up to the proper temp (about as warm as a cup of coffee) don't need it to forging temp.
  11. I couldn't get the link to work, but a search brought up this article among others. https://www.thedrive.com/news/33679/scary-photos-of-recalled-harbor-freight-jackstands-show-just-how-dangerous-they-are
