I found this little 60 pounder on Etsy from another smith in the state. I have a thing for either small anvils, or gigantic monster ones. I have to get a decent stump for this one yet, my foreman said he might be able to find me a good oak log about 2 feet high. I’m really looking forward to trying this guy out, should be perfect for smaller things like bottle openers and such.

Included in the picture is a hammer from a barn out in Maine I found whilst perusing.

Cheers!

Hammer was probably used by a saw tuner.  Cute anvil but I wouldn't let a student with a sledge within 10 feet of it!

Made in Trenton, NJ from about 1852 to 1868.  They tend to be a bit brittle.  You anvil looks to have lost it horn tip at some point, and it was reground to shape.

Yeah it was slightly repaired the description said, I wasn’t too worried about it since it wasn’t nearly as gnarled as my 100 Vulcans “horn” lol

Haha, yeah I’m definitely going to have this one for my own personal use. Nothing too crazy just light work and finishing heats
