fluidsteel Posted September 11, 2011 Share Posted September 11, 2011 So. I bought my first anvil 5 months ago. A 119# Kohlswa with a nice clean face and rough edges for $150, then last month I found a 300# Fisher for $360, it had an awesome face but the horn was missing a few inches but had been chiseled to shape long ago by all appearances. So I CAN"T STOP looking for deals on CL... I found a little 55# anvil and bought it. I got it for $140. Not as good a deal as my other two per pound, but it was the first small anvil I've seen that wasn't either a Farriers anvil, or a Chinese ASO... I have a 3"x6"x10" 81# forklift tine cutoff that I got for a bench anvil, so I didn't "need" it, but wanted it for it's uniqueness. It has two handling holes, a 3/4" hardie hole, a 3/8" pritchel hole and is stamped 52. No other markings. The rebound is 60-70%. The edges are rounded a bit, and the face looks like it was chipped in a few areas due to being struck with a chisel? Those areas have been hammered on enough that the have shunts(right word?) closing them over a bit....It's absolutely covered in small chisel marks. The face is flat, and there is zero sway on the back. Any ideas on the make? No desire to sell, just want to know the history if possible.
