  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify whether this anvil is cast or forged? Also if there has been a plate welded onto the top? I was plan on cleaning up the bumps on the face after buying it as it is fairly flat overall but don't know if it's worth it with if it's cast iron. Fairly new to this but I thought the texture on the top looked cast but then it seemed to have handling holes in the sides so I just don't know. I can try listening for a ring and looking at rebound but it's an hour and a half away to pick up so id rather know before hand. Thanks for any help. Iv attached some pictures for reference!
  2. Hey guys, today I got a new anvil that I bought from a colleg of my father for just 25$. It was covered by thick painting but I removed it and was able to reveal some signs. I also made a video about the sound and the rebound. Perhaps one of you can indentify this anvil and say me what steel/iron it is made of and how much it actually is worth. Here it becomes interesting! I think that the top letters say "1824" -> if that is the production year this is almost antique o_o. And the middle ones seem to say 44 1/2... in kilogramms this would fit pretty good. And there is also a touch mark that looks like a square with two hashes on top. Here I marked the letters that I think I was able to recognize with Photoshop: I was actually impressed by the good rebound! You can also hear the sound (although it got a little scratchy from the microphone in real it is pretty clear!) Ok I would be glad if you can tell me something about this anvil. For me it is a nice little anvil I may take with me to demonstrations or other events that need a portable anvil. Yours - Daniel you may get more answers if you asked in the anvil section, I will relocate for you
  3. Hi All, here in Ireland there is a long established but decaying history of wrought iron gates in the country side. We consider them a particularly Irish thing. I would love to see the traditional rural iron work in your country, I know its not a particularly glamorous or arty side to the craft but I love the history of it. I'm especially interested in the Finnish and Scandinavian styles as well as the UK and USA. Here is a short film from you tube on the irish vernacular field gate. .
  4. so why use wrought iron. I mean, it sounds like its more difficult/frustrating than mild steel (splits, frays, hard to weld, etc) is it just preference? why use it? Littleblacksmith
  5. I hope I'm writing this in the right section. I picked up this sledge hammer head at quadstate this year for two bucks (along with many others lol), but I don't know a thing about it other then that it is OLD. So I was wondering if anyone knows if it had a specific use or could estimate an approximate age? It seems to be made of wrought iron but does not have steel faces like other wrought iron hammers. I had to make the handle because eye was such a strange shape, plus it didn't seem right to handle it with a storebought handle.
  6. A very unique anvil I recently acquired. It appears to have been used to do the welding of wagon tires. It has four different curves for different size diameter tires. A second view showing the different curves. This weighs about 125 lbs. Each "step" is about 3" wide. It appears to be cast iron. It must have been mounted either high up or over a pit of some sort to allow for the wheel circumference. If anyone has any other ideas, shoot. That's the best I can come up with.

    Salvage 1

    Salvaged material from a barn demolition, the long rods are 3/4 inch (19mm) wrought iron silo hoops (reinforcing hoops that go around vertical storage silos - common here on North American farms.) These were from the original wood bodied silo which was replaced by a concrete panel type sometime after WWII. The hoops were thrown into a scrap pile, then re-used as re-bar in concrete work improvements made during the 1960's. Each of the hoops are about 20 feet long (6 meters), they were folded up for ease of transport. Also in the pile are smaller pieces also used to reinforce the concrete, includes wrought iron, mild, and high carbon pieces from old wagons and farm machinery. Whatever was available to use was, I even found a shock absorber!

  15. So these wheels are being sold on FB and I dont have experience with wrought to be able to tell without it being REAL obvious, so my question is "Is it possible to tell from the picture link below whether these wheels are wrought or not, and if so, are they worth 20 dollars a piece?" https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=47DC83DDCD885D43!671&authkey=!ADA8VGchDe1AUTA If they end up being wrought but I cant purchase them, being Christmas time and all, I will post them quickly in the Tailgating section so be watching if you are interested. Thank you...
  16. Hey Guys, today I forged this candleholder with a leaf as a base plate. It is forged in one piece out of 20mm round stock. Regards - Daniel
