The weather has been getting warmer, and I have now been cleaning
out my shed to prepare for projects come spring.
I have two things I would like to get rid of. Back when I was
scrounging for a piece of rail to make an anvil of, back in Sanders,
I was actually able to find three pieces approximately a foot and a
half long which I horse-traded from other people.
Last year, I had made one into a polished anvil, mounted it
properly, and I have found that it is about as much anvil as I need in
a lifetime. I don’t nee d the others, but I’m willing to sell them
dear because the demand is so high.
I therefore have two more pieces of HEAVY rail, very rusty, one of
whic h a person had crudely cut with a wedge shape on an end, the
other which is ready to shape as you see fit.
I am asking $200 each PLUS ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING by whatever
available service can carry it (about 50 - 70 pounds). If you want me
to get the r ust off and polish one, I’m asking another $150 because
it consumes both massive effort and massive amounts of abrasives.
Small pieces of rail such as these have become extremely difficult to
obtain in recent years.
If you’re serious about obtaining and polishing up a rail anvil for
silvers mithing, this is the way to go. $200 plus actual shipping is
not trivial, but it is a significant savings for those crafters who
know how badly they want or need one of these.
I will email pictures to those who interested contact me offline.
