  1. Nice job on the clean up! I have seen some on the internet but i've never seen one in person. I think that mostly is because I live in the Netherlands but from what i have heard they're nice anvils, you got yourself a workhorse! I don't know that much about them but certainly someone on here can say a lot more. Damian Stil
  2. Thanks for the reply's! I bought a Kroil look a like and its loose now! she works like a charm so thanks a lot!
  3. Hi guys, I recently acquire a buffalo forge post drill as a restoration project. All the gears and such are in good condition only the drill shaft doesnt want to rotate, what do you guys suggest is the best thing i can do to knock it loose without breaking the cast frame? Damian Stil
  4. I recently saw this mini anvil, does anyone know more about it?
  5. the base looks like a fisher, cool anvil! I'm not an expert on fishers, someone else on here can tell you more. Damian Stil
  6. can we see some pictures, that would help a lot. I can't say much from what I can see. If it is stamped sweden I would say a Kohlswa but I don't know it for sure Damian Stil
  7. Okay, thanks will get some latex paint and make those bands Damian Stil
  8. after some use and a bit of rain the log she sits on has cracked quite a bit, how can I prevent that the stump completely splits? Damian Stil
  9. If you have an angle grinder with a cup brush it's almost no work, if there aren't any markings we can't tell much about the brand. I would say if the rebound is good it's a serviceable anvil for almost anything you want to do with it. setting your location would already help, for example there aren't many german made anvils in the US (to my knowledge).

  10. hahahaha, not an 8 pounder. I do have a 6 pounder which is my regular forging hamer for drawing and such. Damian Stil
  11. If i'd use it for striking i'll for sure tie her down, I have only never worked with a striker before so for my general forging it shouldn't move Damian Stil
  12. there is no short on swages on my anvil, the upsetting block forms a nice 90*, the stepped horn forms a nice swage to and the feet form big round swages. the 60* is a handy tip that I will use definitely. I don't have a welder yet any suggestions on a relatively good somewhat cheap welder? Damian Stil
