Welcome to delurkerhood Steve! Glad to hear from you after all these years now put your general location in the header. I don't really need to do my usual location thing on you do I?

I don't see a weld, though it's not as dramatic mine has the same grind pattern. I believe the mold had a slight over hang on the face and grinding them flush with the body makes a distinctive transition from the casting marks to ground steel.

You are going to LOVE that little beauty just be aware she's LOUD. I put mine on a steel stand and brought her voice to a manageable level, my 125lb Soderfors would make your ears ring through muffs and plugs with a missed blow.

Sweet score, congratulations on joining super anvil club. B)

Frosty The Lucky.
