  8. Hi All, for those of you involved in the earlier discussions re the anvil I bought of eBay, I have collected it today, the fella I bought it off actually worked with this anvil when he worked for British Steel, it took two of us to lift it into my car I would guess it's 25 stone + I took the paint off the face, table and horn please see pictures below, it has had a hard life but rings like a bell, it looks very much like a Peter Wright but I haven't found any makers marks as yet, it either needs the face milling or replacing but as I am a complete novice I would welcome any advice u can give thanks John
  9. Thanks Frosty really useful information thanks john
  10. Thanks John i suppose that would equate to 260 dollars? I'm in the uk so still using pounds, the owner said it is a definite two man lift , 14'' height 28'' length with a 5'' face thanks
  11. Thanks for the replies lads, I'm picking it up on Friday, I paid £200 for it does that sound about right? I haven't got any close up pictures and no idea why it's painted black?? john
  12. Hi i have bought this anvil off eBay and the seller said it isn't cast iron , I know the picture isn't good but from the texture on the anvil can anyone tell me what it's made of? Thanks john
