Anvils

Recommended Posts

Southern Ohio Forge and Anvil 2010 Quad-State Conference is September 24-26, at the Miami County Fair grounds, Troy, Ohio. There were several anvils there today, one family has 35 to 40 anvils on their trailer, another fellow has 10 or more, others have some anvils also. More tail-gaters should arrive Saturday morning with blacksmith tools. If you are needing an anvil, should find one to your likeing at the Quad-State.

Aaron C did a nice old german one and Adlai S did as well as I hid his as soon as he brought it back to camp.

Fred bought at least 10 as usual.

Thomas,

I saw the german anvil that Aron C bought really nice for it's age,and unusual anvil. Never seen so many camped before, been going to the Quad State since the last year at Mr. Studebaker's at Tipp City. Was hoping to run into you,think I met you several years ago. Did come home with 147 lb Arm & Hammer, could only be there Friday.

Thomas,

I didnt get a chance to meet you, however I did meet your anvils. Finally found an answer to your anvil, it is a POWELL .

Yup I ran it by Postman on the way to the display; sigh, I was hoping for a "Powers".

Fred was interested in my Powell till he found out it was broken; evidently they are a bit rare over here. It's one of my using anvils, especially for students doing heavy work as it's already missing the heel.

The one missing everything from the waist up was probably a Peter Wright!
