I picked up an anvil that I plan on using as my primary in the shop. The horn is "close" but, I'd like the top to be just a smidge more round. I believe that an anvils horn is not hardened and that you can dress it with a grinder. Anyone try that? And, if so ,what is the best way to have at it?

Thanks
Mike

Ps - for you anvil-philes it runs 150 +/- and has an inscription like a V or inverted triangle on the side. If there was lettering it is covered in layers of paint. Any idea of the manufacturer? Thanks.

Mike,
Sounds like possibly a Columbian. I'll double check that for you.

If it's an old two or three piece anvil, the horn probably hasn't been hardened. If it's one piece, it's cast (unless it's a Peddinghaus, which is forged) and the whole thing was heat treated. That said, it really doesn't make any difference if the horn has been hardened, you can shape it any way you want to with Mr. Makita.

A word to the wise: DON'T USE A ROCK in your hand grinder! You can shape your horn just fine with abrasive discs and the worm tracks will be lots easier to get rid of. :) Start with 24 grit discs, go to 36s, then finish up with 50s. Don't even think about using 16s, they cut like hell 'til they get hot (roughly a nanosecond), then the glue holding the abrasive lets loose and you're spreading tiny rocks instead of rounding your horn.

Ps - for you anvil-philes it runs 150 +/- and has an inscription like a V or inverted triangle on the side. If there was lettering it is covered in layers of paint. Any idea of the manufacturer? Thanks.

Find somebody with Richard Postman's, "Anvils in America" and ask 'em. It's the definitive tome on anvils. You might try asking at <http://www.anvilfire.com>.

Mike,
After checking Anvils in America, it appears you have either a Columbian or a West. Inside the inverted pyramid or triangle will be either a letter C or a letter W.

Columbian Hardware Company of Columbus Ohio manufactured anvils for about 20 years up until about 1922 or 23. They are believed to be the first cast steel anvil makers in the US and the most successful. After 1923 they imported cast steel anvils from Soderfors of Sweden until 1926 or 27.

The West Steel Casting Company of Cleveland Ohio manufactured anvils for other concerns but also manufactured under their own name and trademark. The November 24, 1932 issue of Steel magazine said these anvils were manufactured from vanadium steel from an electric furnace. This made for a very good anvil.

Hope that helps a little,
George

Mike, you want to make sure you keep the curve of the horn symmetrical. So work from both sides and go slowly. The "taking off" tool is alot easier to use than the "putting back on" tool. I've tipped my anvils back on the heel so I can look right down the horn while dressing it. Ditto what Tom said plus I finish up with my little Makita belt sander using 80,120 and 180 grit. Remember, we shoers all love shiney things.

Thanks guys,

I'll check it for the C or W in the morning. Nice addition to the shop along with the post vise that came with it (except for the groin muscle pull I got from try to lift the #$%$ vice). I'l give the discs a try and let you know how she turned out.

Oh my God Bill, you given me a new mission in life. The World's Shiniest Anvil! Eat your heart out Lee Lyles. Now all I have to do, is only sleep 3-4 hours a night and in no time at all, I can have that beast blinding airlines pilots at 30,000 ft and warding off UFO's.

I've sculpted a few horns with Mr. Makita and a 24grit flap disk. Just make sure you keep the tool moving. Go back and forth along the length of the horn. You can stop and check yourself with a straight edge - if you're trying for a conical shape.

She's got a "c" in the triangle so, it must be a columbian. Thanks for the info. I picked up some flap discs in various grits and will have a go at it - I'll let you know how it comes out.

Hi all,

I started making shoes on a 300lb shop anvil with a round horn then I bought a flat horned anvil for shoeing and I like the anvil but I just hate the flat horn. Anyway I have had numerous grinding session on it without any problem. I would grind it with something that will take off material and then clean it up with a flap disk.

Hey Kevin,

I'm with you. I started out with a flat horned anvil and wondered why it was taking 437 1/2 heats to make one shoe! Went to a JHM that is in my truck and the clouds parted and the sun began to shine.....

This anvil is "almost round". Just a small flat area on top that I could probably work around but, I'm planning some big hours in the shop so why bother. The flaps should clean it up I just wasn't sure if it was ok to have at it with the grinder- hence the post. Thanks for the input.

Hi all,


Ya flat sucks I have no idea who dreamed that idea up, maybe OK for shaping but shoe production is bad. On the big round horn I can make a killer shoe in one 3 heats and an ok one in 1 heat but 3 heats to fix my punch and pritchels. If I'm praticing something new I don't worry about how many heats. I can make shoes on the flat horn but it just ain't is easy. Thats the thing with forge work many days of rain then a day of sun then . . . . .
