  1. Most likely you didn't do anything to detrimental to your anvil.
  2. The steam hammer marks are like a finger print. As far as I know only arm and hammer anvils have them.
  3. Flynn I think I found the info on anvil fire.
  4. Nice anvil Flynn. Very rare find. It's cast tool steel anvil sold by sears between 1929-1923. It was cast by the columbian anvil company if I remember correctly.
  5. Lol Frosty, 1.34k subscribers apparently think otherwise. I'm sure if you started a youtube channel you could have large following also. I would love to see your shop and how you do things, no offense intended.
  6. I would suggest looking for an improvised anvil.
  7. I never found a date or any numeric code on my Soderfors anvil.
  8. I have a 125 lb soderfors, I love it. But I would of passed on this one for the price. And the extra holes. To me the first pic clearly shows a torch cut right under the back extra hole. The heel has also been modit and the strength has been compromised by the extra holes and the thinned heel. It looks like the anvil was modified to permanently hold some sort of tooling that has since been removed.
  9. I would just use it as is. But keep my eyes open for a better one at a good deal. But that's just me.
  10. You are an extreamly talented bladesmith JHP.
  11. Interesting test Bart. I have been wondering the same thing, new vs old, cast steel vs wrought iron with a forge welded face. But I only have a couple century old cast steel anvils. They are quite small compared to yours :-) 125 lbs, and 130 lbs.
  12. JHP, Is there any particular place you like to buy your steel from?
