bulletpruf Posted June 25, 2016 Share Posted June 25, 2016 New guy here; live in Naples, Italy. Have been on the lookout for a decent anvil for a while, and finally pulled the trigger on one. Guy had 5 for sale, ranging from 25 kg to 70 kg, as pictured above. One of the 70 kg anvils was worn out and dead - did not pass ring test and had about zero rebound. The other seemed to be newer and I was looking for something vintage. I narrowed it down to the two smaller anvils in the first picture and went with the one that has some yellow paint on it. Got it, along with the yellow stand and the hardy anvil for $250. It weighs about 55 lbs, so maybe 25 kg? The hardy anvil weighs about 10 lbs. Here's what is cast into the side - not sure if it's a FEP, PEP or PFP with the F upside down. I'm somewhat familiar with PFP Peddinghaus anvils, but I haven't seen one marked like this. Anyone have any ideas on vintage and/or manufacturer? Also, I stripped off most of the paint since this picture was taken. Plan to give it a good wire brushing from there. Any other recommendations on how to clean and preserve it? Thanks! Scott Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
