  1. I recently saw this mini anvil, does anyone know more about it?
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Okay, thanks will get some latex paint and make those bands Damian Stil
  5. 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
  6. 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). Damian Stil
  7. hahahaha, not an 8 pounder. I do have a 6 pounder which is my regular forging hamer for drawing and such. Damian Stil
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Okay thanks, I'll just use a hammer then. (saves me making a ball punch) Damian Stil
  11. In the end i'm still a blacksmith so why don't forge them? I won't be looking for a swage block as obsessed as for anvils now, I'll just look what I would want to give for one if I ever come across one. I really like IFI, it helps me a lot with a lot of questions so thanks for responding! Damian Stil
  12. one like this? I don't want to make it worse Damian Stil
