The novelty of a small anvil is just cool itself although I could see it being put to use on some projects.

I have a couple of short pieces of old 540 PTO shaft I use quite often.

I have a few anvils ranging in size from a small one that's about a pound, to one that weighs about 40 lbs.

I found a 5 gallon bucket about half full of different attachments for anvils at 7 Mile Fair a few years ago, and asked the guy how much? He replied $5.00. I asked per piece? He looked at me puzzled and replied No for the whole bucket, I'm tired of hauling them around. I left very happy with the bucket.

Here is a pic of the condition of the Anvil as I bought it.

Nice restore Charlie. I like it.

Very cool anvil rather you use it or display it. I can see why you had to buy it. I would have too.

If you display, need to mount it to the end of a proportionate log.

Not a bad idea Dave.

Hardly ever saw an old farm anvil or the old blacksmith shops, iron shops w/o the anvil on a log.

Could even debark it and spray with lacquer to seal...That would look cool.

I don't think I have any old square head lag type bolts that small unless 1/4" would work?? Holes look smaller than that...maybe 3/16"???

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
