    Default Wanna see an anvil or 2 or 200 ?

    So I have been shopping for anvils for months now. I ran across this and thought some of you might like to look at a collection other than razors. I found it amazing myself.

    Fun!

    I've got an anvil that's probably from the middle ages, to bad in a bad shape, otherwise I would use it.
    No pics, it's at my fathers place, sorry!

    Btw, it's interesting that the very old anvils in that collection resemble small altars.

    They tell a story about Dan Blocker, from Bonanza, when he was in High School. The other kids made fun of him because of his size; until one day in Shop Class he picked up the Anvil and walked out with it!

    Default Tin anvil

    Hey guys check this one out. I went over to one of my vendors and I saw this huge anvil on the bench. I remarked "Boy you dont see one like that too often. He told me to try to lift it, and much to my surprise I picked it up with ease. He made the entire thing out of sheet metal as a practice too his sheet metal skills. Welded it with stick as well. Totally blew my mind. Way cool.

    This is my home anvil a bit much but it was stuffed in the back of my shop un-used so I cleaned it up. surfaced ground the top and its serves me well as a peening anvil.
