  2. A couple 7 layer blades I forged with @ChrisBriggs. Configured in the following. WI-1095-WI-1095-WI-1095-WI WI: wrought iron.
  3. Things have been good. Kids are in a lot of sports and keeping me busy. I've popped into the forum and checked things out here and there but I didn't forge for almost 3 years. I'm slowly getting back into it. I've got 350 gallons of propane to use so lots of hot work in the future! I agree 100% on all points you made. I'm just glad there finally selling an actual anvil! I will stick with my 674lb German monster!

  5. These are the Types of Wood: Guayacan, Guayaibi, Quebracho Blanco
  6. I think that is all hardwood from Australia and Brazil it is really really good stuff!!! I looked up the wood types but I cant remember now. It says it on the back of the bag...I think.
  7. I looked it up and Namibia uses 50Hz motors so if his adjustment on the VFD is in Hz then 100 would be twice the speed.
  8. I have my VFD on my hammer set to ramp up the speed very quickly. It is at full speed in less than 2 seconds. I can see it working for controlling the speed of the hammer. The only problem I see is when I'm running the hammer all in one operation I find myself starting slow and rapidly increasing the force of the blow. That's something a VFD cant do. You basically set your speed and that's what you have until you adjust the speed on the VFD. I wouldn't want to be trying to adjust the speed while trying to hammer something home! I think if you are just drawing out stock it would be okay but if you were using top tooling I believe it would hinder the performance.
  9. I would buy it from you for me to weld in a steel bit!
  10. It appears that way. I'm guessing with the upsetting block it would have been around the 700# mark.
  11. Here is another anvil with the upsetting block broken off.
  12. The 674 lb anvil I kept I believe had an upsetting block at one point. I originally thought this was filler rod or something from when everything was forge welded. I've seen Joey Vandersteeg do that on a small anchor and some of the mini anvils he made but it was brought to my attention that it was probably the upsetting block that broke off.
