Hello all new to this site. I'm a beginner hobbiest metal banger (don't wanna call myself even a wanna be smith yet haha). Right now I'm banging on a RR tracks and I, like everyone else, am looking for an anvil. I ran across someone that has one and it looks cheap but not sure. He said he would sell it to me for $50 and the only identifying mark on it is an extruded extruded "NO. 50". I'M ASSUMING IT'S CAST BECAUSE THE LETTERS AND NUMBERS ARE IN FACT RAISED CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE GIVE ME SOME INSIGHT ON WHAT THEY THINK THIS IS? And if it's worth $50 thanks all
Hello, I'm new to blacksmithing and have gotten a few things here and there as far as tools and the like. Recently, I came across this device whilst scouring eBay, and am not familiar with this at all. I was hoping for some help identifying what it is and what/how it is to be used. the listing said it was a shaping tool. Thanks so much.
Hello, Just today I bought another anvil, this time one that is MUCH larger than my current PW. This thing is pretty dang big.'m not sure what maker it is or what weight it is. All the markings are gone except a serial number 72131 and a 8 1 on the front foot. I believe this would mean HB or Trenton as A&H serial numbers don't go this high right? There may be more markings on the foot I just can't tell. This thing is in amazing shape, I haven't touched it, if I took a wire brush and some soap to it, it would be much easier to potentially see markings. I really don't know the weight, I do know one guy could not carry this thing though. I have attached pictures of the anvil, its size, and markings. Could you guys help me figure out the weight and the maker? Thanks!
