  1. Hi guys, I've just picked up a new - old - anvil here in Wales, UK, and I've been directed here by some blacksmiths as the place to go for any insights into age, maker etc. All I know is it is old - it's been suggested to me that it might be 18th century, and possibly a Mousehole, but I have literally no idea. Any insights or info would be gratefully received. Thanks. The working face is 11.5 inches long and 5.5 inches wide, the bick is another six inches. The anvil is 11 or 12 inches tall. It has four feet and the body is pretty roughly made. There are no obvious markings - at least none that I can see.
  2. So I am a 17 year old guy who just finished making a charcoal forge and have all the tools I need (to start at least) except a good anvil. I live in Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada so not a lot of market for that kind of thing here and the only place I could find that sold anvils was Princess Auto and those were only 24 pounds and really small. I got one figuring "eh it will work" and so far my friend and I are learning that we really could use something bigger so we have more surface and it doesn't bounce (the actual anvil bounces when we strike the metal). I am just wondering if there are any good places online that sell anvils or if I should just watch places like ebay hoping that someone will be selling a good anvil? Any suggestions for this or any other tips for a beginner would be appreciated I am also having troubles getting the charcoal hot enough but that may just be a case of not using enough charcoal. But yes assistance and suggestions about the anvil would be great. Thanks all! -Justin Reynolds
