Hello iforgeiron! I started forging around summer 2016 at the age of 17 years old and I still am a total newbie at it. Luckily for me, with the help of my family, I recently bought a nice old anvil for a very good price. (It replaced my 20 pounds ASO. ) According to the writings, I believe it would weight 94 pounds: After looking at the third hole, which has a bottom, I do not really know its utility. If anyone know something about it, I would be very curious. As far as I see it, this hole easily traps all kind of dusts so it does not seem practical. (I had to clean it a little to see the inside) Thanks in advance! BTW English is my secondary language as I live in Quebec.
Hey guys, I just bought my first actual anvil. Found it on Craiglist. It's a Peter Wright, #168. I got it for $225 and just a 20 minute drive away. The main issue is with the heel. The body of the heel is in tact well but as you can see the top part is cracked. I don't know a lot about anvil so I'm not sure how this happened, if it can or should be fixed etc. There is a bolt running through it to keep it attached. However, the horn and face are in excellent condition. There is no sway to the anvil, the edges are somewhat rough but doesn't bother me. All four feet are in perfect condition. The rebound on it is very nice! I'm very happy with this purchase, what do you guys think?
