  1. I like the casting work. I need build a more dedicated foundry for when I cast some more stuff waste to much gas using the forge. Plus need larger crucibles. 


  2. I have bought many anvils over the years and sometimes whole shops just for one or two specific tool. I had a habit of also obtaining mini anvils in the process and kept them. Would love to see everyone’s collections. I assume since they don’t serve much use being so small I won’t get too much grief for not using them.

  3. Yeah I have always been more of break it then fix it when it comes too situations like the bolts   Finesse has never been one of my attributes . I can’t remove the pins either too rusted so since it all works I am just going to clean it up and put it back to work. 


  4. Well I have spoken to Greg(Holland) many times he takes the process very seriously to make a high quality anvil. It’s true in general there is more of a market for old anvils vs new but if it’s going to be used as a tool get a new one if it’s an investment get an old one. 


  5. Well to be clear only the female on it is brass. I have seen a few over the years but it is the first I have owned. I am curious was this factory? Looks like it was based on quality of the cast. Was there a specific company did this or reason why? I have started cleaning it (I didn’t put the chop or grinder marks on it) but I know many post vises didn’t have maker’s marks.  

    Jaws are 5” haven’t weighted but I guess 80lbs

  6. The guy said he ground it down. Intentional or not didn’t like how he presented it for sale just shady. I walked away from it. I was the first one to see it he had no interest in lowering the price after he misrepresented it stating he had four other people willing to buy it. One day later he dropped his claims of weight from 750 too 350 still doesn’t weight that maybe 250lbs and dropped the price from 750 to 600 but still way to much for a ground down broken heel anvil in my opinion. 


  7. Was around  250lbs What he wanted for it was unrealistic for an anvil in that shape. The one too the right was an early us trademark Hay Budden. Weight was probably in the 100lbs range. He also had a 40lbs Vulcan and a dozen stakes. Didn’t want to sell the quality stuff just that anvil.
