I am near Austin tx

I have inspected it closely from all sides and haven't found any markings. it is clearly forged from several pieces and it has good rebound.

I have other close up pictures that I can post

Welcome aboard Old Crew, glad to have you. NICE anvil! I don't know about the armorer's anvil part, I was under the impression armoring was what lead to the horn but I lost that book to someone who felt he had a better home.

Take a look through the anvil stand subsection before you put a lot of work into a wood block stand. I used to have mine morticed into wood blocks but now have them on steel tripods. It REALLY quieted them down and has other advantages.

Got a less clunky handle we can address you by?

I have been a welder for a long time and have a steel fab shop. That being said I am much more comfortable working with steel than wood. I believe the anvil I just got is  relatively old and assumed it would look better/more authentic on a stump. After setting it on the stump the proportions don’t look right, too large diameter to work effectively. Even though it would look good on a stump I didn’t get it to display I got it to use! So steel tripod it is.

I will be building a forge next and before finding this site had already decided to use 2 ribbon burners . I was looking at pine ridge burners. Last night I read some of the forge info and ribbon burner sections .It was info overload for a beginner !

You and others on this site have definitely done extensive research and have documented it for others benefit 

Thank you

Information overload is the brain needing time to process and categorize the information into a data base. Then go over the information a second time and it starts to make sense. When you use the information it becomes to knowledge.

There's nothing wrong with aesthetics, nobody's going to fault you for wanting things to look how you wish and a wood block is easy to trim. Well, you need a chain saw or misery whip and a couple teenagers to power it. I've seen some beautiful wood stands that were sawn into truncated pyramidal shape one was even stained to bring out the grain.  

I wasn't and am not trying to convince anybody about mounting their anvil, I'm just passing my reasons and results along. 

Before you try "understanding" the posts regarding multiple outlet burners, including ribbons, bear in mind we're experimenting our "research' is largely look before you leap reports. I lucked out, my train of logic panned out. What I posted in the, "Naturally aspirated ribbon burner" thread is more a log of what I was thinking, the methods I used for testing and how surprised how well the things worked.

Many of the replies are other guys trying to figure the things out, only a couple guys really know anything about ribbon burners and I'm not one of them. What's been posted so far is anything but text book like info, it's more like using braille to choose a house color.

Frosty, I'm not planning on building a ribbon burner anytime soon, but the real time research and development happening is amazing to follow.
