Frosty   

She's in her prime Brandon and wants to be used. Her intended purpose is hot steel and hammers, she was born to wear out hammers. What else do you have for kit? I think we have the anvil covered now lets talk about your: forge, hammers, chisels, tongs, etc. Hmmmmm?

I am not sure if the weight it says 131 I am fairly certain but it sure feels a heck of a lot more when I have to move it back inside my garage when I am done. I appreciate all of the insight you all have shared with me.

They always feel heavier than they are, it's an anvil thing, ask Wile E Coyote. Sweep a spot on the garage floor and put it on a bathroom scale is the best way to know within a reasonable amount. 

My main go to anvil is 125 lbs. and it's plenty for anything I want of it.

Definitely the middle number is a "3" as the ends are on a tighter Arc and fall short of the middle.

its actually 129 lbs and her face is starting to shine up, spent all day yesterday and part of today forging a campfire tripod with a hook to control the temperature. never thought I would consider such hard work so much fun.

 

 forge, hammers, chisels, tongs, etc. Hmmmm?

my forge is wood believe it or not, it is a wooden frame that houses about 6 inches of dirt, and it is packed in a cone shape in the center where I have a Stainless Steel shower strainer to cover the hole enough to keep the coal from falling threw. my bellows is a shop vac 3.5 hp and it gets super hot, I know this less than ideal for forging stuff that has to be "clean" of impurities. I am going to get a true coal forge as soon as possible. and my hammers are just cheap harbor freight hammers. my tongs are some that i made out of rebar, i have a set of wolf jaws and a classic C clamp set. I am using "stoker coal" because it was we have in southern Colorado.
