Attwood anvil?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a largish anvil that I think is an Attwood. However, it has an interesting divot taken out of it that looks factory. Does anyone have an opinion on this, or any Attwood catalog info?

thanks,

Thrumcap

Does one of the pritchels look drilled and the other punched?

Drilled versus punched? Interesting, I’ll take a look. The squared side is what has me confused. I haven’t seen many anvil images like this and there is little documentation on Attwood I’ve found outside of AIA.

...After taking a look, it doesn’t look drillled. The hole in the body is larger than the hole in the plate. I’ll post a picture in daylight, I’ll have to flip the thing over.

I think it is a retrofit along with the extra pritchel hole and was done possibly with an eye towards farrier work. If it was original I think it would be as smooth as the side of the rest of the anvil.

Thrum. Could you post a picture dead from above the cutting shelf. I'm curious if the horn is centered to the larger or smaller face width.

Eventlessbox: sure. I’ll get that photo and one of the undersides of the Pritchel holes early next week.

Well, here’s some photos. I think the anvil horn is biased slightly towards the smaller width. The pritchel holes are much larger from underneath.
