My pal who owns a famous power hammer firm has lent me this Swedish anvil to make a pattern from. It’s just over 3cwt I believe
Seems legit:Doesnt look quite right. Looks like a photoshop to me? All that weight on a crap pallet with a gap underneath?
You were missed from the Zoom meet....@Parm was hoping you would joinSeems legit:
"The big one – 4057 lb - Length face (inch/cm) : 88,59/225 - Width (inch/cm) : 13,39/34 - Height (inch/cm) : 25/63,5 – Length base (inch/cm) : 40,95/104 – Width base (inch/cm) : 29,13/74 - Weight (lb/kg): 4057/1840 - Shape : France
History : This anvil is perhaps the biggest anvil on the world. The anvil was weighed on a weighbridge : 1840 Kg / 4057 lb. This anvil was used in the years 1925-1930 in France in the town of Fecamp by the shipyard, company VILLARD, address 85-87, quai Bérigny, Fécamp. The company VILLARD closed the 1981 07 01, and the anvil was bought by a scrap dealer. The anvil was used by the scrap dealer to block the entrance gate to prevent thieves from opening the entrance gate at night to come and steal scrap. It is possible to find in France more anvils with the same pattern but smaller, the resseller of this pattern was "Aux Forges de Vulcain". But the company "Aux Forges de Vulcain" was a reseller and not a manufacturer so I don't know the name of the foundry who build this big one anvil. Nothing is engraved on the anvil."
