Catweazle Posted December 28, 2016 Share Posted December 28, 2016 This is my first anvil, possibly a bit bigger than I need but it was local. I'm interested in identifying it, it looks like a Peter Wright but then again so do many others. It certainly works well whatever it is, rings like a bell, weighs approx 506lbs, so I'm well pleased and looking forward to some more projects. There are no easily visible stamps on it, apart from some punched initials, probably a former owner. It has the handling holes I have seen on pictures of PWs, and what I can only describe as "ripples" on the sides and horn - I've tried to photograph them. The total length is 34 1/4", width 6 1/4" and height 14". If anyone can tell me a bit about how these anvils were manufactured I'd be very interested, I read somewhere that the factories were built by rivers so that the red-hot anvils could be dropped into the waters. Is this true ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
