I Forge Iron

Possible buy?

Recommended Posts

I'd like the opinion of you guys on this anvil? I want another anvil and I will go and pick it up if some of you experts give a nod. :)

Old Southern Crescent anvil. Probably pre-WWII. Made by Southern Skein and Foundry Company, Chattanooga, TN. Tool steel top with cast-iron, recessed base. Has 10 stamped on the top of one of the feet. Approximately 100lbs.
Good collectors piece or general shop anvil.

Call to come look.

How hard up are you for an anvil? That type is on the lower tier of quality as far as "real" anvils go.

It will be a quiet anvil if noise problems are an issue in your area.

At 100# if will not be suitable for heavy work, what are you planning to do?

I'd like it a bit lower in price myself and would myself pass on it as I have better; however if you are hard up for an anvil it will work as one to a point.

(And nothing seems to flush out anvils as buying one...)

So I guess my real question would be: Would it make a good secondary anvil? Well what kind of work could be done with it. As far as sounding loud...uh not a concern of mine. I have an anvil that has a beautiful ring to it when I wanting to make music. Tin smithing maybe, copper hey I may be answering for myself...who knows I'm green.
