Very Impressed 06/17/2019 5:52:48 PM

I purchased this anvil about a month ago. The cost compared to vintage anvil was really no comparison at all. Ive used this anvil almost daily since it was delivered and have had no issues whatsoever.

Make sure its chained down to the base and have a lot of help to move it around. We used the front loader of the tractor and then straps to get it on the base.

If youre looking for a work anvil, this is it.

STOP Thinking about it & buy it!!! 03/21/2019 7:40:45 PM

As the cost of an vintage anvil of the same weight would approach $3000.00 it would seem as though this would be a no brainer.... Somehow I'm stumped as to why folks would hesitate on such a thing. So I'm compelled to review this anvil as much as an anvil can be reviewed.

This thing is massive & heavy you'll need an engine hoist or 3 friends to pick it up and a got oak tree trunk or equiv. for a base. It's best to strap it down with chain & a turnbuckle because repetitive hammer will loosen itself from most fasteners. The ball bearing test gave me about a 10-11" return from a 12" drop. It's real hard to get an accurate measurement but the return & subsequent bounces were all about an 1" shorter than the previous. Which tells me they are at least aging the cast portion of this anvil and that would explain why the anvil was on backorder for so long. Now I can not determine if the top plate is forged or cast & whether is has been brazed, welded, glued, double sided sticky tape, or whatever to the base but at this size & weight it doesn't really matter to me. The ONLY drawback to this anvil is that it has a 2" hardy hole in the back and for the life of me I don't know why.

Anyway for the price, I'm buying another because I'm sure I'll sell it for twice the price in a year or two....

I was looking for an affordable anvil for my husband as a gift. It is huge and heavy, well worth the money.
