  1. The Republic of Belarus is the official name of my Homeland. This state in Eastern Europe, until 1991 was part of the USSR, was called the Belarusian Soviet socialist Republic or Soviet Belorussia. In General, the history of our state begins with the year 862 – the first mention in the annals of the city of Polotsk. Polotsk was the capital of the Principality of Polotsk, the first state formation on our lands (it was there that I bought my anvil).
  2. Dear forum participants, thank you all very much for your participation in resolving the issue with the anvil, I sat down, thought, weighed everything well and decided that you are right. So I'm not going to touch my face, just leave it as it is. I'll just clean it well with a wire brush. I also had completely different thoughts and I just needed someone to consult in order to make the right decision.
  3. Everything is clear, thank you very much for your help, thanks to you I learned a lot! If I can find out anything else, I will definitely write about it. I also wanted to ask: you do not recommend milling or polishing the face. This is understandable, since a steel plate is welded on top, which does not get thicker from milling. In my case, you can tell from the cheekbones that the plate welded to the face is about 1-1. 5 cm thick (0.39" - 0.59") at its thinnest point. How critical is this for milling? I've also heard that anvil faces are welded to the surface of the face, and then the excess is milled. Personally, I do not like this method very much, since, in my opinion, welding will not have a positive effect on the face and its hardness. But I still would like to restore the plane of the face, but I still doubt how to do it better. What do you think about this? Всё понятно, спасибо вам большое за помощь, благодаря вам я узнал очень многое! Если у меня получится узнать что-то ещё, то я обязательно напишу об этом. Еще хотел спросить: вы не советуете фрезеровать или шлифовать лицо. Это понятно, поскольку сверху приварена стальная пластина, которая от фрезеровки толще не становится. В моём случае по сколам можно определить, что пластина, приваренная к лицу, имеет толщину около 1-1,5 см (0.39" - 0,59") в самом тонком месте. Насколько это критично для фрезеровки? Ещё я слышал, что на поверхность лица наковальни наплавляют металл сваркой, а потом фрезеруют лишнее. Лично мне этот способ не очень нравится, в виду того что, по моему мнению, сварка не окажет положительное влияние на лицо и его твёрдость. Но мне всё же хотелось бы восстановить плоскость лица, однако я еще сомневаюсь каким способом это лучше сделать. Что вы думаете по этому поводу?
  4. Thank you very much, you are very helpful. I can't even tell you how much I appreciate it, what it costs to view more than 500 pages of a book for a stranger! I also wanted to ask if I can somehow help in finding the manufacturer of the brand resembling the English letter G? (Located on the front sole of the anvil under the horn in the center). I tried to photograph the fragments of the inscriptions, but I noticed something on the back of the sole in the corner. Or do I just see these letters everywhere?))) I have photos of the sizes between the two front legs and the distance between the front and back legs. The size between the two front legs is 39.5 cm (15.35″); Between the front and back legs-41 cm (16.14"). Should I write to Stourbridge to try to identify or narrow the range of manufacturers of my anvil?
  5. Thank you very much! You said that the postman's book indicated that these anvils had "Stourbridge" on them. On my anvil, I was able to read "bridge". As I understand it, "Stourbridge" or "Sturesbridge" is the city in England where this anvil was produced? I in turn also searched for everything I could in English related to anvils and found an anvil similar in shape to mine. It says "Guaranteed" on it, and mine clearly shows "anted". Can we judge that these 2 anvils were produced by the same manufacturer? In my case, the uppermost letters are very illegible, so it is impossible to tell exactly about the Creator. What does the word "Guaranteed"mean? The book does not specify the years of manufacture of these anvils? Can something be written about the technology of their production? It turns out that the research of your anvil with your huge contribution ends here, because in order to learn more, you need to contact the author of the book? Can it be found in social networks?
  6. Спасибо большое с нетерпением, буду ждать! Thank you very much, I look forward to it!
  7. Thank you very much for the detailed answer. I didn't know the book was so new, and I wouldn't want to steal it, but I have a great desire to find out as much information as possible about my anvil. And in my Country, no one has such information, and I have no one to ask. I am very grateful to you that, despite my poor translation, you pay attention to me and spend your time. For me, with the weight of my anvil, everything became clear, and I would also like to find out its manufacturer, year of manufacture (at least approximate) and the text that was written on it. Thank you in advance! I also do not sit still and read all the English-language information about anvils similar to mine. And I found out that they were made not only by casting but also by forging and forging welding. How can I determine this in my case?
  8. Thank you very much for your response. I've never even heard of such a system for measuring and recording weight before. I couldn't figure it out myself. Is my anvil made in England and very old? Produced around the beginning of the XIX century? It turns out that I did not buy it for nothing at a distance of almost 600 km from home. Do you recommend reading the book "Angels in America"? Maybe you will specify a link to the free version, and then I found only for $ 75. And that's more than the price of my anvil.
  9. Thank you, this is understandable, but I would like to know the maximum amount of information about the Anvil: what is this model and what is its name, in what year it was released, what factory, how much it weighs, I am interested in the full text that is written on it, in General, any information that relates to it. Or at least who made it and what was written on it before.
  10. Good afternoon, dear participants of the group. I am writing to you from Belarus, I do not know the language, I am writing through a translator, but I am counting on your help. A few days ago, I came across a large and heavy anvil, the approximate weight of which is more than 250 kg (more than 550 Lb). I can't weigh it for sure, because I don't have such large scales. Dimensions of the anvil: Face width-18 cm (7.09"); Length-101 cm (39.76"), (including a slightly chipped horn); Height-36 cm (14.17″); The size of the square openings 40 mm (1.57″); The size of the round hole is 27 mm (1.06"). The anvil also has square holes under the horn at the front and on the opposite side at the back, most likely for transportation. There is the same square hole at the bottom of the sole. On one side of the anvil, the number 5 and 8 are very clearly distinguishable, which are located on the left and right respectively. In the middle there is something resembling the number 7 inverted to the right (it is less visible). On the second side of the anvil there is a text that has been preserved very poorly, and in which only some letters can be read. Here's what I was able to recognize. Also on the sole of the anvil under the horn in the center there is a brand, presumably resembling the English letter G. The anvil will be used for its intended purpose, but I have a huge interest in finding out what this model is and what it is called, in what year it was released, what factory, how much it weighs, I am interested in the full text that is written on it, in General, any information that relates to it. I am writing to you because I hope that perhaps someone else has the same one, and you can tell me something.
