    Re: Anvil recognition for dummies... (and powerhammers)

    Thanks for those old adverts. I've just swapped my very well used 250# smiths anvil for an unused Brooks 77kg anvil in immaculate condition. And for those of you who think I'm mad, have you ever tried to pick up a 250# anvil on your own?

    Re: Anvil recognition for dummies...

    In my opinion the way an anvil is used is quite a personal thing that develops as you learn to work hot metal. I dont like using the bick on my anvil for anything other than forging bend.s I use the various radius's on the edges of my anvil for drawing out steel. The radius on the cutlers anvil could be used when you want to put a bend in the steel so it forges back straight when you start to form the blade or for drawing out the steel.

    Re: Anvil recognition for dummies...

    I don't suppose any one would know what "35 34" "U" stamped on a fairly young Peter Wright anvil would mean?

    I've read they may have started doing serial numbers on their later anvils but I can't confirm this!

    Cheers
