I Forge Iron

Picture Of The Latest Anvil...

Recommended Posts

I have an 1828 William Foster with a broken heel and missing most of the face; of course I only paid US$5 for it and the wrought iron an small piece of 1828 shear steel was worth it to me...I always wanted to try refacing it the old way. Need to get a conference that would like to help try that out! (Postman advised me to forgeweld the new face onto a WI plate and then do a WI to WI forgeweld as WF used a fairly low grade of WI.)

I once paid US$40 for an anvil with a missing heel but very nice flat face and usable horn. It's the anvil I leavy out chained to the stump with my outdoors coal forge. Less likely to go walking and very usable. I also use it as my "loaner anvil" for students to borrow while hunting their own at a decent price.

Great idea about making a 4 way anvil; but I'd stop at 3way to still have a good place to work on the full face.
