Hi,

my parents went away and they found this strange looking anvil. My dad thinks maybe it was used to slip on top of a railroad track. I believe the guy is asking $235. Please let me know what you know about this. Thanks

Greetings Forging Carver,

Forge on and make beautiful things

That's an old vice anvil I seen one on auction go for less than $80 and was complete and not used much this was also a auction with tons of tools it was a auction meant for blacksmiths

Only half of the full unit. Cast iron and for very light work, not blacksmithing.

The interesting part is the movable jaw was adjusted to close and a rod put through both pieces to hold it in place. You could than use the screw for fine adjustments, and clamping the material to be held.

Not a rip off at the right price. Useful for blacksmithing, not much.

If the fellow is asking $235 you may want to ask what he wants for the whole package and all the parts, not just one piece. Some come with a drill, etc
