Hay-Budden Anvil

Recommended Posts

Hello All


 I Recently was cleaning out an old Tire Shop. In the back corner was a pile of steel beams and other stuff.  When i got to the bottom i found this anvil, the owner told me i could have it if i got it out of there. So after a little cleaning this is what i came up with. Would like to know when it was made , I'm guessing weight is 210# , and how much its worth .  I will probably ending up selling it .

WOW!! Fantastic find.  Free??  Unbelievable luck.  The anvil looks to be in great shape.  If you do decide to sell, it won't last long.  Hay-Buddens are a great anvil.  I just bought a 168# one about a month ago and really like it.


What is your location?

People are always complaining about the lack of anvils in California so it will probably go very quickly. The size is absolutely perfect for general smithing that any hobbyist might be interested in, and it's not too big that it can't be moved around with relative ease.  That and the condition should fetch a fantastic return on your investment!
