  1. Any of you out there that have any tips for spotting a Soderfors in a crowd without any obvious marks? The feet appear to be similar to Peter wright with the little step on them; correct? Anything else that screams Soderfors that I should be looking for?
  2. I have been blessed by the Swedish god of anvils lately. 1930 200 lb Swedish steel . I ended up with some treats this past Sunday . Other than a few torch nicks in the face and it looks to have been welded to a base and torched off slightly it is in excellent shape . It rings like a bell and will return a ball bearing from 12 inches to 11+ It has a slight crown in the face and really feels lively under hand . I'm very pleased and feel fortunate to find one this nice .
  3. hello. bought this anvil, which the guy tells me is a soderfors, he said he could just make it out from the side, but on the photos i cannot see it, so i trust his reading irl. i havent picked it up yet, but from the looks of it, it seems like it may well be. he told me it also said "1818", however, i do believe it is 1918, which it looks like on the picture. 131 or 133kg or thereabouts, so quite a beast
  4. if it was closer than I would get it, but its probably already gone anyways. Its an 85lb soderfors anvil for $150 on craigslist . The edges don't seem to great but the price is. here is what the ad says: Vintage 1924 Soderfors 85# anvil. Comes with solid steel hammer. Priced to sell. Littleblacksmith
  5. G'day forum, please accept my apologies for jumping straight in, but in trying to research my anvil, your site kept coming up, so figured you're the people in the know! Short story - my dad bought this anvil years ago, part of the story as I know it was that it came to Australia as balast in a boat (not uncommon apparently), I don't know which boat or when, I'll lean on my dad some more for this information . . . as well as how he came to owning it! Either way, there downsizing and I'm about to look after the anvil. I love this anvil, it's only ever lived in the garden of the family home and will continue this lifestyle in my garden (sorry to you true hammer swingers). It's the passion for the anvil that's brought me to your site, I'd like to know more about this "Soderfos Bruk" anvil, made in Falun Sweeden and weighing 562 Lbs. Having done a little homework, I now realise I need to get a better picture of the stamping to the left of ths "SODERFERS" as this may help identify a bit more about this anvil. I'm guessing from other posts that it may have a top welded on it? and that may be steel? and the rest may be cast something? Happy to be pointed this way and that on the internet, just finidng it difficult to find out about the company and anvils of this size. Attached some pictures, sorry about the thumb in one, this is how it sits at my dads place, I'm intending to hit it with some engine oil? when it gets to my place to spruce it up a little and get rid of the bird poo, but didn't want to do too much to it as to ruin the patina or the authenticity of it. Any help greatly appreciated.
  6. Found interesting enough to share: An original enamel Söderfors sign 69.5 x 49.5 cm and 1927 Catalog in excellent condition were sold this past week at auction in Sweden for 15,100 Swedish Kronor ($2,250 USD). Pictures attached, we now know what the crest on the anvils really looks like. Would have been great if there were pictures of the catalog pages, they made most every country's unique pattern in the 1920's. Enjoy.
