I'm looking for a smallish, 20 lb anvil for use indoors on a bench for finish work. Are these out there, and how do you find them? Or, would you suggest taking a segment of RR rail and grinding to appropriate shape and finishing that?
Wanted to share a recent acquisition with the group and get some opinions. I picked up a Fisher Number 2 20 pound anvil at the ABS hammer-in in Tulare last month on impulse, its a little torn up on the edges but for 20$ i couldnt just keep walking, so without further ado here are some pics :) The only markings i have been able to discern so far are the FISHER logo and big numeral 2 under the horn, and the letter A towards the base under the heel. there is a visible circle in the casting on the underside of the base, presumably where a sprue was cut off. Anyway, i picked it up to be a bench anvil for light indoor cold work on non-ferrous metals. to which ends, i need to clean up the horn and face and polish them. im not going to remove a lot of material, just shine them up, but i wanted to ask if there might be any significance or meaning (to the museum for instance) attached to it that might be larger than pressing it back into service. Thanks for looking!
