Picked this up today at the local scrap yard, have been looking for one for a couple years now. Scrap yard guy finally got a few in on a farm clean out. Iím hoping to use it for straightening out tin on the 801 sheet metal that needs a little work. Donít know anything about the anvil except the weight, itís 215 pounds, I verified it on the digital scale. Iím curious the history of the anvil or who may have owned it in the past.

A good friend of mine went to an auction once specifically to buy an anvil they had. He ended up buying the entire farm.....

We always had our grandfather's. But we found one in the late sixties while shrimping. It had a two foot piece of yellow nylon rope tied to it with a loop on the end. We still have it. It was in a creek right behind a migrant camp. Dad contacted the police. They said without a body or a report of someone missing there was nothing they could do. I'm guessing the only witnesses would have been the crabs that ate him or her.

Nice find! I've been casually looking for one for years. They
seem to be very high priced and shipping is not really an option.

The one in that ad seems like a perfect example. WAY over priced

considering the weight, the damage on the horn and the lack of
the pieces that would have been included when new.

If he were including all the hammers and tools, it would be a much

better deal, but if I read it right, he wants extra for each of those.

I guess I'll just keep using that old piece of railroad track.

It was passed down from my father who always wanted an anvil too.

At least I have square edges and round edges to work with. :)

And, by the way, it kind of looks like a Trenton.

I have one that looks much like the one in the add.

Never weighed it but I'm guessing around 100 Lbs.

That's a beauty, I'm envious. Lots of videos on Utube for blacksmithing, anvils, etc.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
