Purpose of anvil cut-out?

Recommended Posts

On a Blacker powerhammer that hammer can transverse from side to side; so you can set it to use tooling in either hardy hole, or just hit in the middle of the face OR you can set it so that the outer edge of the hammer face  aligns exactly with the inner edge of the cut out---very handy in certain situations.   There is probably a weight and a serial number stamped into the side of the face outside of the cut out that would be interesting to know. (I was told my Blacker Fisher was 515# when I bought it and found it stamped 469# of course at 70 cents a pound...)
