Fisher Anvil Pic

Recommended Posts

Some here may have seen this pic but its new to me and I thought I would share, Anyone have the story of what this 1400lb behemoth was used for or what ever happened to it? I would love to have seen this display live.

As far as I can tell it was only ever used for marketing - Fisher being able to claim that they make the BIGGEST cast anvil - EVER. There was another thread about this anvil just a few months ago. Apparently the anvil went into storage shortly after that world's fair and was almost forgotten. It's just recently been put into a museum in New Jersey for people to actually see again. We have a "resident" Fisher anvil expert on the forum who can tell you more than I ever could. Of course, I don't remember who right at the moment ...
