First of all what a great source of information and found myself tumbling in a "rabbithole". I hope I found the right place for my post, but I'm sure the moderators will point me in the right direction if I'm not.
So here I'm looking for my first anvil and want to start crafting! I found this Soderfors 1917, 40kg (88lbs) for about $3,20/lbs and what I believe is a german style anvil?
Anything I need to be aware off and are the face and edges of this anvil in decent condition to get me started? As it is about an two hour drive, I'd like to hear your first impressions before I take a chance and hear the ring and try to do the rebound test.
Your input will be very much appreciated!
