Huge Tool Collection May 2016

I have a large collection of blacksmithing equipment and tools for sale. My father and I began collecting blacksmith shops in the 1960's when it was still fairly common to find them in small Texas towns. Most were closed up in the 30's and 40's, but many were still relatively intact. The majority of our equipment is from the old blacksmith shops of many towns between Houston and Austin.

In the link, I have tried to picture and fairly price the larger items, however, the hand tools are too numerous to individually list. I would love to answer any questions and provide specific information and pictures of any specific equipment and hand tools you are interested in. I look forward to helping any new smith with basic equipment as well as expanding the shop of any established smith.

All items shown by appointment. Please call before visiting shop.

Anvils and Tools Febuary 2016

I'm planning to come to the Steephollow Forgeworks meeting Saturday and will bring some anvils and other tools. I have a 226 lb Hay Budden (small chips along the edges but a good table, could be easily dressed with a belt sander, a nice classic for a shop center of attraction). Also an old style Peter Wright classic about 150 lbs, clean, flat table. And a like-new pre-WW2 cast vanadium steel, 150 pounds (the tough steel that made the Model T). These won't be cheap because they are all exceptional. I'm coming from out of state and prefer cash.

ps: Really looking forward to seeing old friends.

Champion Cavalry Shop US Cavalry Coal/Coke Forge Aug 14

Own a piece of history! This is a nearly pristine specimen of the Champion Cavalry Shop US Cavalry Coal/Coke Forge, which I've dated back at least until World War II based on a couple of links below. The only blemish on this museum-quality piece is it's missing the latch that holds the packed forge shut (see last photo). The Champion blower (the industry standard at the time) works beautifully and still has the original wooden handle and counterweight intact... a rarity for older forges like this. It has been well-preserved in a barn in central TX for decades and now it's available for your collection.

This rare machine would be a perfect display piece for the military enthusiast, blacksmith collector, or farrier... or could be put to use. I recommend a coating of refractory if you opt to use it for forging as the metal is somewhat thin and old. Personally, I'd rather spend my time polishing and looking at it than forging with it.

Cost: $700

================ SOLD ==================

The following links will give you more info on the forge and its place in history.

8" Post Vise April 14

Columbian Post Vise- $600 ====SOLD====!

Very large Columbian Post Vise. 8" jaws, 150#. Excellent used condition, but there are two issues which do not affect use and can be easily fixed: 1. Non-traditional spring; 2. Leg has been extended using pipe fitting and iron rod. The screw, screw box and collar are in excellent shape, no broken threads. Great size for an upset vise.

Located in Fort Worth near TCU. Prefer customer pick up, but would consider meeting half way if out of town. Could be shipped motor freight on a pallet at customer expense.
