  1. Hi, I am looking at buying this anvil pictured below. Very reasonable price for the size and the face/edges looks in good condition (Slight sway in the face). I was wondering what people thought of the condition/manufacture, from what i've heard it looks like a Peter Wright with the flat edges on the feet? Also any estimations on weight? Cant see any markings but is 91cm long for reference. Second point, any idea what the use of the small shelf is? I know usually when they are flush with the face it is useful for scroll work but is seems odd that it is lower down than the main face? Thanks for any help
  2. I was wondering if you all could help me identify an date and anvil. We've had this in our shop for at least 25 years. it was a gift from a local farmer who is a close friend. It weighs 145 pounds, rings like a bell and has a rebound of about 85%. On the right side I can make out "Peter" and then a bunch of jibberish (to me) and a "0" or "O" on the lower right side. At the lower front side is "BB". Those are the only markings I have found. Thanks in advance for any information you might be able to share. Doug.
  3. It was an highly satisfying journey.... Paint removal, hours of wire brushing and finally some oil. She sings loud and gives 90% rebound. Aside from beat up edges near the table, she's xxxx near perfect.
  4. I have the chance to pick this peter wriggt 100lb anvil for 200 dollars the only think is the edges are pretty round and one side is banged up a little is it still a good buy and could I make my money back if I ever want to resell it?
  5. Hi all, I had a buddy of mine call me up a while back wanting me to take a look at an old anvil he had for sale. I just got the time this last weekend (and the money if it was something I wanted to haul home). I went out on a gamble (I know foolish), and bought it up even though it had a bit of maltreatment and probably needed some repairs, but for a huge chunk of iron that she is, and 300 bucks! I took the risk. Now as I said she has some damage and might need some repair, some block head decided to use this anvil as a cutting torch table!!! :wacko: There are quite a few cuts, but only a few that have done critical damage. It looks to me as if someone went threw and tried to repair it with nickle rod, but did not take the time nor necessary steps. She is as straight as an arrow, flat as can be and oh boy dose she sound beautiful when she rings. I did a drop test with an inch and a half steel ball (all I had) and at 10" the ball will return 7". There were no evident markings on her, so when I got her home I started hunting, and this is what I got. She is a peter wright, with the weight stamp 2-2-11, which as I have gleaned is 281 pounds. It was hard as could be to find the markings, and all I could find was, Peter Wright Patented (What appears to be the solid wrought stamp) 2-2-11 I am hoping yall can help me narrow down the date, determine the worth of repairing, and tips on how to do so. I have read many articles about repairing anvils and am gaining a lot of info, I'm looking for advice for my situation, with the torch cuts and all, and to save yall some typing. A little more info here for you guys, when it comes to welding I am well versed and learning, I am a professional welder for a company that repairs train cars. Our welds have to be x-ray passable, and for the trucks we have to go through heat treating process since they are cast steel. I am fairly confident I can do the welding bit to par (Also hoping I can find someone to help me threw it) but this is a very old piece of steel that I would like to see last past my life time. So If any of you can help me out on this future project that would be much appreciated, thanks yall :) Beer can for scale This is a torch cut, facing in towards the face, its as deep as the ledge there. some minor gouges on the very edge Deep hole in the horn and what looks like to me, a repair. Heel,of the anvil, partially shaved off. Some damage in the hardy hole Deep gouge on the marking side of the anvil Deep gouge facing in, on the opposite side of the anvil Some repairs done, first one is on the face, other is on the side nearer the heel.
