    Wow Anvils are big bucks now!

    After seeing the post on that Anvil I looked up the one my Daughter bought for $100.00 and she got a killer deal on it! It is a 125 lb M2066 CENTAUR BURLINGTON #56 Anvil made in Sweden. Guess they can go for over $650.00 and up! She picked up a large old Forge with a Hand operated Blower at the same place I better look that one up too. Click image for larger version.

ID:	659136 Might need to chain this down since it just sits in my open shop? This is a write up on one;

    125 pound Centaur farrier anvil from Sweden. This company is known for their best quality cast iron anvils and this was one of their best selling farrier anvils. The Swedish anvils are known for top quality steel and defect-free anvils. The Centaur company had high standards and this is one of the best with top rated rebound etc. Condition is excellent on this anvil. Dimensions are 28 inches from horn to heel (total top length). Horn is 11.5 inches. Table is 3x17 11 inches tall. 11 x 9 inch base. Includes a chisel for hardie hole the top of chisel is 2 inches.

    They ain't cheap! I still haven't bought one but I look at them all the time. Anything I see under $600 is pretty well trashed. If I saw something like your's listed for $100 I'd be there in a hurry and offer them double.

    She picked up this same Forge setup with Blower too at the same place. The guy on EBay wants $1,250.00 for it! She also got it for $100.00 maybe I need to bring this forge inside and take better care of it!Click image for larger version.

    After mom died we were going thru her house and garages found a Anvil in the storage and a big lard put that hung in my grandfathers barn for butchering cows and hogs. They melted the fat and lard in these huge pots. I took the anvil and pot and let my younger brother have the misc tools and a cheap floor jack.

    i wished i would of had the money to get my one pap's anvil, plus his forge-------i don't know what either one brought that day.

    the only thing i got from his sale was a JD clevis-that was given to u, when u bought a set jd trailer plows. at least that's what my pap said is how he got his.

    i'm sure DRobinson know's what i mean for the clevis. i'll look and see if i can find a pic of one.

    jd4044M--u had better put that forge underneath a roof-ok.

    Took care of the forge tonight. I raised it off the ground now sits on wood. Covered the top with 4 layers of PVC and then a sheet of metal bigger then the forge. The head now spins nice I had a bunch of Transmission Fluid I soaked it in and cleared out all the old grease so it is easy to crank. Here is a picture of the Blowers Side with it's name "CANEDY OTTO MFG Co Chicago Heights Ill" "C 966" Next summer I will blast and treat the Forge with Stove Black since it is not being used just to protect the Cast Iron or at a minimum Oil it good.Click image for larger version.

    Great deal there JD4044M !!

    I've got my grandfather's English Mousehole anvil (way over 100 years old) and also his old hand crank forge blower, have the
    blower picked up, but use the anvil regularly.
