  1. LOL, Yeah Thomas, my patio now has a golden boiled linseed color right around the anvil stand! Hah, I don't figure it will last to long with my feet wearing it down! Sure made a nice color for the stand though. I don't think the wife noticed it yet!
  2. CGL, Well you should be, that Emerson is a nice looking anvil as well as that Walnut stand your men put together for you. My wife said she was going to get a small welder for me for Christmas. Been needing one of those for a long time too. Nothing expensive, just a Mig welder that will weld up to 1/4 inch steel. Thank you Metaldrms! I sure plan too, hopefully they will look like tools with some practice! lol

  4. Thanks CGL! LOL yes, time to get scale everywhere! At least our patio will be cleaned often! I had to hang some tarps to shield in half the patio from rain. I don't have room in my knife shop for blacksmithing yet. I plan to expand that eventually too, then I will have all my stuff together. Now on to more tools and gadgets for working on the new anvil. You'll get that anvil you want soon CGL, get the heaviest you can!
  5. Thank you Eventlessbox! I brushed on some boiled linseed oil on it and love the warm orange-ish color it brings out of the 4x4s. Going to be hanging some tools and what few hammers I have so far. Cheers!
  6. Hello everyone! Finally here is my Peddinghaus anvil and the stand I built for this last week. Hope you enjoy the pictures. That stand was a lot of work but I love it and it should last a long time.
  7. Thank you EventlessBox, I'm sure it will. And I'll definitely get those pictures up tomorrow. Cheeers!
  8. Anvil came in Tuesday via freight. I've been working on the anvil stand for 3 days and finally finished tonight. I'll post some pictures of it tomorrow for anyone that would like to see it and the stand. It came out real nice and everything is solid as a rock. She was sure heavy lifting it about 4 times during he stand work. Hope everyone is doing well!
  9. Well Evntlessbox, I sure gave it a lot of thought like many before me. It was more than I originally wanted to invest in but I didn't want to settle with something I was totally comfortable with. And, might as well pay that new price unless Anvils start falling out of the sky to pick from. Used ones sure looked bad on craigslist and ebay. Also figured if I'm going to spend a thousand on something used and still have to ship and possible make repairs on it, the new one made more and more sense. And, I still have my nice gun!
  10. Yeah I figured I might as well get the one I liked best so I hopefully won't need get a bigger one unless I start making some bigger items. I think I'll like this weight.
  11. Thank you CGL and Frosty! I was really going back and forth between the Kanca and this peddinghaus, I really liked the weight and looks of the Peddinghaus over the Kanca. I knew if I make some bigger knives, I would need that extra weight. The reviews were all great, and it was the one I really liked the most, so why not get the one I want and hopefully won't have to get a bigger one in the future. Nothing wrong with the Kancas, I just really liked the look of that pedddinghaus. Should be here in a few days, I am very excited. Thank you to everyone who answered questions and offered so
  12. Well, my big anvil guy still has not made contact with me, so...I bit the bullet and just ordered a Ridgid Peddinghaus anvil 165 lbs. Ordered through Acme Tools with no tax and free shipping. I was told it should be here in 5 to 7 days. They had them in stock so they said they would ship it within a day. Very excited to see my new anvil arrive! She's pretty too! Love the shape and weight.
  13. Are you selling any of the tools you make Mr Moose? I'll be needing some tongs and a couple hammers soon.
  14. If anyone wants to see my knives I've made in the past, I have a lot of them on my YouTube channel. Feel free to browsed the videos and check out my knives. All of them were built using the stock removal method. I'm looking forward to getting my first anvil and starting to forge some knives. Off site link removed I haven't posted in quite a while. Just been busy with life and other hobbies. Some of my work
