  1. I am surprising my husband with an anvil. We live in Houston, Texas and he has been making railroad spike knifes along with small to medium size knifes, for the past year and I sell them online. Right now he uses a 70 pound piece of crap type of anvil. He has done so much research (too much research) that I figured I would just surprised him by buying a good quality top rated anvil. I want to do this before he ends up waiting too long and we end up spending the money on something else. I am looking to spend around $500 (maybe a little more say $650) on a 125 pound Anvil. I do
  2. I finally took the plunge and bought my first anvil. It's a 200lb Fisher-Norris "Eagle". The auctioneer called it a "city" anvil because due to the manufacturing process it doesn't have the telltale high pitched ring. At least that's what he said. I think I may have gotten caught up in the bidding and overpaid a bit for this, but it's really what I was looking for, so I'm telling myself it's OK. I know it's worth is in the eye of the beholder, so I'm not asking if I got a good deal or a bad deal, I'm asking if you would pay $800 for this anvil? Do we have any Fisher experts in our mi
  3. I been in the market for a new anvil for a while now. Right now I have a 20# railroad rail and a old 70# cast iron ASO. I keep striking out locally, ether I don't get to it in time or the deal does not go though. I'm also am haveing a hard time finding good anvils in grate shape. So I decided to buy a new anvil. Before I go and spend a bunch of money I better ask someone that knows more then I do if I'm making a good deal or wasting my money. I looked at a few anvils and I like the Ridgid Peddinghaus model 5 77 lb Anvil. it's a good weight and size for me, but the price is too high for m
  4. The tax man cometh, as he does every year. This time around, he was pretty good to me. All I have to do now is get the base leveled and silicone it down. Then there's the 24 hour wait for the silicone to cure... She's a Big Blu, and 260 lbs. Picked her up at the shop in Morganton, NC on Monday. I really enjoyed getting to meet the folks there. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and I'd do business with them again in a heartbeat. No paid endorsements here, just wanting to spread the word about good people. They are having an open shop day on March 22nd if anyone is interested. Unl
  5. I found this on Gumtree (Australian Craigslist), and want to know whether it's in good condition and suitable for a beginner. If there are any problems with the Anvil could you also add a way to repair it, unless you just advise against buying it to begin with. It is an 85kg Peter Wright anvil.
  6. Hey guys, I need an opinion about this anvil: http://www.centaurforge.com/NC-112-lbs-Calvary-Anvil-Eligible-for-Free-Shipping-See-Home-Page-for-full-details/productinfo/18NC112/ I know it's more of a shoer's anvil, but would it suffice for a starter blacksmith? Let me know your opinions please, come one and come all.
