  1. My Grandfather passed earlier this year and I inherited His Anvil. I'm Blessed beyond words. I'm pretty sure it belonged to His Father as well. Great Grandpa had a shop but mostly did mechanics. Grandpa was a real Montana Cowboy, you'd be hard pressed to meet a better Man. One of my earliest memories was of Him having me straighten these huge nails on that as a kid. He did His own Hot Shoe for His horses which I loved to watch. I'm leery about dressing the edges. I don't intend to do any heavy work with it, I'm not a smith. I'd use it on the farm for repairs and such. I built a brake drum forge years ago. This is my prized possession now. I'm very honored to have it and hope one of my Grand kids will appreciate it when I'm gone. The ring and rebound are amazing, I can't wait to get it hot and shine it up. Is it odd that this doesn't have an oval depression in the base? I'd love to know any history on it if someone could run the numbers please. Serial # 15237. Thank you Sorry it's so pic heavy.
  2. Hi Everyone! Yesterday I picked up this 140# Arm & Hammer anvil and I was wondering if someone can help me determine the age. The serial number appears to be 15200. Searching online I haven't found an example of an Arm and Hammer anvil with the same logo as mine. After looking for a while I was stoked to locate this anvil because there aren't a lot for sale in my area (Northern CA). I was also really happy to stumble across this awesome forum. What a great resource you have all built here. Thank you! Mickey
  3. So I scored a small arm and hammer tonight, stamped 111 but I haven't put it on a scale yet. Got some chipping but overall it's pretty good shape. EXCEPTIONAL rebound. Gotta love my A&H's!
  4. Greetings, my Dad was an apprentice blacksmith at his induction in 1943. After discharge he went to work at Goslyn in Birmingham , Al as a helper to their smith a Mr. Charlie Crews. I think his first name must have been Mister as Dad never referred to him as anything else. Dad went to work for Hayes Aircraft in B'ham as a heat treater and retired from there. He never did any forging at Hayes but his tempering and annealing etc. were pretty well known. But, back to the present, Dad wanted an anvil, and he wanted about 500#s worth of anvil. The one in his shop has an arm and hammer logo stamped on the side, and the words "wrought iron" beneath which the numbers 4 0 1 are clearly stamped. I assume from my reading this is a Columbus Anvil and Forging product and the weight when forged was 401lbs. Does this make of anvil have a number? If so where? The anvil is 35" from tail to horn and has a 22' face and 3' step. The width is 6" and the hardy hole is 1 1/4" square. The priddle? hole is 5/8' diameter. The anvil rebounds nicely but is quiet as a tomb. It is set firmly on a heavy steel stand which might mute the ring and I can detect no cracks or repaired cracks that may have silenced the ring. Any thoughts?
