24 posts in this topic

got an unknown anvil today and it is huge.

cant see any markings yet and it will be saturday before it gets cleaned, hope to find out weight tomorrow.

the feet look unusual to me and it has 2 hardys, both 1 1/2" and a 3/4" pritchel

length is 37 1/2"

width of table is 6"

height is 16 1/2"

slightly sway backed and a little damage on a small part of one edge

anyone want to guess the weight or maker?

Nice score. No idea on maker or weight though if you drop it by I'll be happy to weight it and get it back as soon as I'm done with it.

Interesting transition from face to horn, I've never seen that one before.

the pick up it was deliverd on was weighed with it loaded and I will get the tare in the morning when I see the driver, im guessing 300 pounds plus and more likely 400 plus

I'll put in a *guess* of PW due to the ledge on the front foot; but either a custom one or one that was refaced the old fashioned way sometime during it's life due to the height of the face over the horn.  Wouldn't be surprised to find out I was wrong either.

Those dimensions might put you in the mid-400# range.

I have a similar double hardy that is 38" x 5-7/8" and 15-1/4" tall.  It is 465#.

Beautiful anvil, congrats!

Great anvil, ID! Congrats! My guess on the weight is also around the 440lbs/200kg range.

You'll have a lot of fun with the two big hardy holes - lots of opportunities :)

I am going with 500 lb.  Soho pattern?

I'm guessing a Peter Wright by the feet and 450-500 lbs. I think that it is indeed a Soho pattern anvil, my main anvil is very similar though it has a step and is a shade shorter, it weighs in at 450lbs.

475# Soho Peter Wright is my guess.  Good score!

Cool! That's nice! What's your next move, ID? Get a stump, building a stand or...?

Don't worry; next visit I can remove that nasty old anvil from atop the rock and get it out of the way permanently...
