I Forge Iron

First anvil acquired! (173# HB)

Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

Finally bought my first anvil and I'm pretty psyched about it! It's a 173# Hay-Budden. I tested rebound with 1" ball bearing and it's ~90%.

Serial# 18045. Anybody got any more info on this thing?

Here are some pics (don't mind the giant stump, I'm going to resize it):

What an admirable find. I love all the marks on the side. Reminds me of the crackle on an old painting.

The stump would probably be in your way depending how you work.

I would dedicate some time and effort in making a nice heavy metal stand with a tie down like JLP has on one of his anvils. 

Fantastic anvil. 


Check stand at about 9 seconds in the video
