  1. Hello guys, My friend have this Wilkinson's anvil with markings on it but I can't read them all. I see on one side: (disappeared Wilkinson's) Emblem Queen's Dudley And on the other side I think I can read: Patent Solid (R or B)un & En(I or T) ---­­­--- This is the part that I can't read. Does any of you know what it can be written please? Thanks

    St-Paul leg vise

    Hello I have this leg vise tant I bought yesterday for 80$ CAD. Perfect condition, nothing is missing, 4" jaws. I was able to read St-Paul Works and there is a crown logo. There is also S&W beneath the crown. I would like to get more info about this company. Around what years did they make these. I think it comes from Minnesota but I'm not sure. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
  3. I just figured out the brand stamped on it. It is a Henry Van Wart Best Scrap warranted anvil. I saw on another anvil the same stamp but more readable. Thanks for your help anyway. I don't need this anvil. I was only curious of what brand it is. Thomas, It was when you mentioned Warranted that I was able to do a better research on google. Thanks!
  4. This is not my anvil. The pictures are from an ad. I want to know the brand to get a better idea of it's true value before investing on it.
  5. Hahaha that would have been awesome then! It is not mine though.
  6. Hello everyone Is there someone who can help me identify the brand of this anvil please? It looks like the first word is crafted but the rest i can't read it. It is not mine. Only an anvil on an ad. Thanks

  11. Hi, I have forged 1" thick and little over for hardy tools on a 110 lbs anvil. I think that a minimum of 100 lbs would be good for you. Heavier the better but only at a good price. I have a 500 lbs anvil that is waiting for a stand since a year so for now, i take my small anvil. I'm forging all my project on my little 110lbs czech anvil and it's doing very fine. If you can buy a 165 with double horn then go for it as the double horn can be very handy for some pieces. Do you have a picture of the anvil you are looking for?
  12. This is my very first commercial made coal forge. It is in very good shape and the blower works fine too. The forge and the blower are Canadian Blower & Forge Co. Kitchener Ontario. I bought this forge to make some expositions this summer. It was the perfect size. I'll just clean it up a bit and maybe open the blower to clean it and to put some oil.
