  1. Good day everyone, I've found and bought this anvil in august from a retiring blacksmith and have tried doing research on the maker, without success, so I'm wondering if any of you might know a bit more about the history of this anvil. I bought the anvil in Belgium, Antwerp, and it's very similar to an UAT anvil, it weighs 145 kg or 320lbs, it's height is 30cm or 11 13/16'', it's 88.5 cm or 2' 10 27/32" long, it's 16 cm or 6 19/64 " wide, it has a hardy hole and a pritchel hole which are 3 cm or 1 3/16" wide and it has the number 145 for the weight on it's side together with ''LG'' which
  2. Well, I tried the TPAAAT method and had results within 24 hours. Now comes the part where I try and figure out how much to offer and get some help from you folks on what kind of condition this animal is in. I will go back tomorrow with a ruler and a ball bearing and test the rebound, as well as lightly tapping all over the face horn and heel. I did tap the face once and it rang very strongly, sort of like a bell. It seemed very hard. I think it’s cast steel, It weighs around 150 pounds and the only mark I could find on it was sort of indistinct under the heel. I’ve included a photo. At the bot
  3. Hi all, I've been wanting to work with metal for almost for about 5 years now, and my journey in the Air Force has finally given me time to pursue this interest. There is one problem I have run into though. I live in Alaska, and cannot find an anvil anywhere. I have heard of people using railroad rails as a low quality substitute and I am wondering if this is ok to start with. I want to start perfecting scroll work, tool making and repair and possibly blade making. Thanks for your time
  4. I just bought a Fisher anvil. Haven't weighed it yet, but I was told it's about 80 pounds. It has 1882 on it. The top edges have a couple of chipped places, but not bad. I paid $150 for it, any idea if I over paid?
  5. Good morning all, I wondered if anyone could shed any light on this anvil, from my online searches I think I've deduced that it's a mousehole anvil, however I'm stumped as to why there's no hardie or pritchel on the face. I am just negotiating a price with a guy and he's offered me this for £100. I currently have an anvil from Amazon, one of the Chinese 66lb Orions and wondered if it's worth upgrading.

  7. I've been offered an anvil with the markings Lincoln E 50, it seems like it's cast and 50 most likely refers to 50kg. I'd like to know if these are good anvils, since I haven't been able to find anything about Lincoln anvils. Thanks for your time.
  8. Hello, I'm new here out of curiosity about an anvil I picked up. A knowledgable friend says it's a Columbian so I'm just looking for second opinions and more info. I would guess it weighs about 30 or 40 lbs. I found a few pictures of similar looking anvils but none with the "S" mark on the side opposite the triangle C mark. So I'm wondering - is it a "real" anvil (as opposed to a cast iron shape) and if so, what types of work was it meant for? It's next to a 10" wide woodworking vise in one of the pictures for size reference. Thanks
  9. Why do so many guys anvil stands look like welded scrap metal, they have no skills, they adopted a red headed step child, or just flat don't about the most used tool in the smithy. No matter what your stand is made of make it nice. I have seen all sorts of ugly terrible way guys fasten their anvils. Seen guys working on a stand that wobbles all over the place. It's were we spend most of our time. It should be the best managed, looked after, efficient, and usable piece of equipment in our smithy. Here are some tips and pics of my stand. So wood, metal, stone, or Kryptonite get a
  10. Looking for some help. Bought this anvil with the back cracked off. It has markings but I can't seem to figure out who made it. There is a large M on it, and I can see "son & s" but can't make out the rest any ideas, thanks for the help!
  11. the original stump of my anvil was too big in diameter. uncomfortable to move and above all it did not allow me to be as near to the anvil as I like except by placing the anvil itself on the edge of it rather than in the center. so I decided to put it aside for now and use the old stump of my "ASO". I took two pieces of pallet frame and cut them copying the shape of the base of the anvil obtaining two stop blocks which I nailed to the center of the new stump. now I can move it more easily and can get closer to the anvil when I forge. it is perfectly stable and the anvil cannot move at all.
  12. Hello everyone! My wife’s grandpa gave me some free goodies that he’s been holding on to for years. The coolest is this little anvil. It looks like it’s gotten a couple little repairs and might have a mild steel body with a hardened steel top plate, but I’m not entirely sure. The logo is really worn down, but after a ton of research I found it is a second generation Arm and Hammer (2nd gen as in 2nd logo design). There are remnants of numbers stamped below the logo, but its hard to make them out. From what I can tell, it looks like a 2 and a 6, but this definitely weighs more than 26 pounds. I
  13. Hey everyone, long time creeper first time poster. Just looking for some help IDing this old anvil. It was in my dads shop (he’s a disel mechanic) for about 20 year and he doesn’t remember where it came from. Mostly used it to beat on stuff, but I think it may have been softened in the past Its got a good ring to it and about 60% rebound, but it also slightly deforms when you drop a 1inch ball bearing. Just looking for as much info as I can find. Was also considering taking it to a professional heat treating place to see if it can be rehardened.
  14. Hey there, I'm new here. Like many others, I too bought an anvil and need help identifying it. It may (or may not) have a little bit of history in it that could be interesting (or not). I am located in Germany and the anvil i bought is definitely British. The shape is a classic "london pattern", just like a Brooks with a relatively thick heel. I'm pretty sure it's cast steel since the only hole is from the bottom straight up and the ring is fairly high pitch and long lasting. The only markings i could find are stamped on the opposite side of where you would normally expect the makers ma
  15. Hey guys! Found this anvil here in São Paulo, Brazil and need help identifying it. I know it weights around 200 Kg and that's all... Can you help me?
  16. Hello, recently I acquired this pig anvil and I would like to identify it's procedence, the makers brand is almost illegible but it could possibly be a Baker? As far I can distinguish te logo looks like an "x" with an arrow and an asterisk, also the weight is marked at 48 kg
  17. Hey guys, happy Thursday! So I’m new to this forum. Mostly a vise guy but have always been looking out for an anvil and finally stumbled across one. Was covered in dirt and rust but could tell there was a makers mark. Looked well taken care of as the face and horn are in great shape (step isn’t the best). I got it home and went to town with a wire wheel. It’s an American Dunn & Murcott made in Brooklyn NY and seems to be a pretty rare anvil! It has 130 stamped into it making it 130# and made sometime between 1899-1911. The more rust and dirt I took off, the more damage I seemed to fi
  18. Hello, I recently purchased an old anvil and I was looking for help to identify its maker. I uploaded some pictures to see if anyone recognizes it. Seems to weigh about 120 lbs. Thank you. 0427202028a.bmp 0427202110a.bmp
  19. Hello all, I've had this anvil for several years now but haven't been able to figure out what company/made of/date/style. Any help at all would be really appreciated! It weighs about 120 lbs. Its 20 inches from horn to the end of the face and about 9 inches in height. As you can see there are no handling holes and it has a flat base. The only marking that I can see anywhere on it is the 12 at the bottom. I have a copy of Anvils in America and couldn't find anything that quite fit its description but if you find otherwise please let me know! -B
  20. I just saved an anvil from a trip to the scrap yard. It is a Trenton with a crack most, if not all, of the way through at the waist. It was repaired with 2 long bolts from the stand up through the feet and into 2 threaded holes, one under the horn and one near the hardie hole. It has a Trenton stamp visible on the right side with T175 on the front right foot and A36043 on the front left foot. I understand that T is the initial of the maker and that it is 175 lbs. I don't have the date of manufacture but based on some other responses in the forums, I assume something like 1901-1903. Anybody
  21. Hey all! I just made an account in hopes to learn more from everyone here and to share/HOPEFULLY get a real estimated Production date on my anvil. It is 230 pounds J. R. Lindsay Pittsburgh with a Number 1 stamped on the left side of the foot. It’s measurements are 12.5 inches tall, 5 inches wide, and 29.25 inches long. I believe the Pritchett hole is 1/2 and the hardy is 1 1/4 It has a 3/4 inch steel face and appears to be forged by hand due to hammer blows throughout the sides, heel and horn. The horn is also crooked. Any information would be greatly
  22. A friend of mine found this anvil while antiquing. He knew I would be interested and contacted me. I know it's worn but boy does it have character. And the price was right at $150. I may keep it as is and just use it from time to time. My other anvil doesn't have a Hardy hole so this one will come in handy for that. The other option is to fix it but I don't think it would be worth the expense. If anybody recognizes this old girl and can provide info that would be helpful! I don't know looks like an anvil out of an old SEARS Roebuck catalog.
  23. Hello All! My online name is Nikko, I’m 23 and stumbled upon Gold! ..Well an old anvil. I was cleaning out my families garage when I stumbled upon what I believe to be a sisco superior (I think that’s the name) anvil. Only clear thing I can make out is it’s 208 lbs. I need help identifying, cleaning, and selling this anvil. I made a similar post on Facebook and I am getting some mixed signal so I decided to make this account and talk to you guys. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I uploaded a handful of pictures, let me know if you guys want any more. I
  24. I am in need of an Anvil. I'm not looking to go and spend $400-$500 on an Anvil so im planning on going to my Local Junk yard as well as the Local U-Pull Place. Unless I get lucky to find a piece of RR Track or even an Anvil at a decent price, what could i look for to accomplish getting the right amount of Bounce with my hammer (32oz Estwing) as well as having enough Girth to allow for full strength striking. Im still Learning (Self Taught) so im not 100% concerned with having a Pritchel or Hardy Hole (unless i should be concerned with having one). Anything will help at this point
  25. Did some light clean up on my 1912 solid steel Hay Budden anvil. The picture is a before shot. Check out the video and tell me your thoughts. Thanks everyone!
