Little Giant 50# Dec 13

I tried to buy this hammer 15 years ago. He doesn't want to deal with tire kickers, therefore I am the designated hitter. The blocks look rusty , but unmarked. The overall condition, in my opinion,of the hammer is excellent. He has another set of blocks ,if he can find them. 2nd owner -1st stored it 40 years, 2nd stored it 20 years. The hammer came from another knifemaker in Floresville 20 years ago. S/N 4735 Built 1925. Has new 220 volt motor and belt. Videos available by request.

Price: $3,000 ========= SOLD ============

I will load for $200 ,cost of a Bobcat rental, and haul for $1.00/mile. Buyer to unload.

Blacksmith Tools Dec 13

Hello, my name is Tom Smith, I live in San Antonio, Tx. I am selling off most of my blacksmith shop due to our moving to Ireland and none of my electric tools will work over there. Here's a list of items I have for sale, I'll send pictures of some of the things, most are self explanatory.

1. Custom made 1/4" steel plate coke forge, the fire pot needs to be tacked back into place, I removed it so that it was a little lighter while moving, the wheels also need to be replaced, I miss judged the weight of the forge and the wheels I used didn't stand up beyond two moves. I was using an electric fan from a fireplace insert as the bellows, not sure if it still works or not, it did last time I used it. I'm asking $650 for the forge, if asking price is paid, I'll throw in 1 1/2 garbage cans of coke.

================= ALL SOLD ========================

2. Clarke metalworker model bt1000 drill press. $50

3. Black & Decker 7 1/2" Power band saw. $25

4. Large LP tank, 40 Lb and a smaller one like used with bbq grills, $90 for both or $75 for larger, $20 for smaller.

5. Large buffer/grinder on stand, $75

6. Craftsman bench belt sander. $30 with extra belts

7. Metal stand that had a dual squirrel cage mounted on it. $20 (I'll throw in the squirrel cages, the motor burnt and I didn't have time to remove it.

8. Leg vise on portable stand, $100

9. Various smaller grinders, ranging in price from $10 - $20.

10. several antique hand grinders, $20 each.

11. Pro Flex type engraver, $100

12. Professional knife sharpener. $100

I'll have more and more items as i go through the boxes and crates in the shop, I know I have loads of scrap metal and cables I've been hoarding to make knives out of. As well as some ball pein hammers and tongs I still have to go through.

I have a tree stump that I've been using with my anvil that someone can have for free if they come get it.

All items are for pick up only, I will not offer shipping or delivery on any items.

If items are still here in February I'll be taking them to the scrap yard and selling them for the scrap weight.

My contact information is:

    My husband builds furniture... www.tyloyola.com if you would like to take a look.

    He used to have a larger production and did a lot of his own ironwork. With the economy, he has scaled back and no longer does any ironwork. He is fanatical about taking care of things and keeping everything clean. He bought only the best and they have not been used heavily. They should be a great find for the right person.

    Peter Wright Anvil October 11

    Peter Wright Anvil For Sale Asking $550.

    Stamped 1-1-13 (153 lbs) , size is 24" in length x 4" wide x 9 1/2" in height.

    100_3948_r.jpg 100_3949_r.jpg

    Excellent condition, used with care. I have two, am selling one. It has a beautiful ring, no breaks, welds or cracks. A great anvil for your shop or small smithing. Definitly a good investment. Pictures are of the 1-1-13 anvil. I do have another Peter Wright anvil that is larger and of course more money and would consider selling that one and keeping this one which has the most beautiful ring or tone to it and there is a higher pitch if you hammer the horn and still beautiful to listen to. It is much nicer than my larger one but the larger one is bolted tightly to a stump where the smaller one that's for sale is loose.

    Would prefer pick up but would ship at extra cost. We live in the Pocono Mountains, Pensylvania, about 2 hours west of New York City and 3 hours north of Philladelphia.

    100 Lb Little Giant September 11

    This 100 lbs Little Giant hammer was bought from Richard Hood about five years ago and he had overhauled it the year before. The Babbit's are in good condition and in spec for clearances. He also painted it with Imeron.

    0402091512.jpg 0402091512a.jpg

    I have used this hammer about 40 hours after I bought it. During that time I have gone thru it completely mostly just to check it out and see that it was set with proper clearances. (I am a machine re-builder).

    The spring and any worn parts were replaced with parts from Sid Sedermeyer.

    I am looking to get $3750 for it.

    The hammer is in Phoenix and I travel back and forth between Galveston and Phoenix several times a year.

    I live in Hunt, Tx which is about 15 miles west of Kerrville. I'm about 265 miles from Houston

    11) A Mousehole (Armitage) forge anvil that illustrates how anvils were made before solid tool steel castings in that they cast milder steel for the body and forge welded a tool steel faceplace onto the body and if the forge weld wasn't good all the way between the different metals then the face would break in parts, much like bending a piece of metal until it breaks. $400.

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

    You may have seen this illustrated in Richard Postman's book on Anvils in America. If the 1-3-5 on the side is hundredweight then this anvil weighed 201 lbs at birth but the measurements on it are a little smaller than the other 200 lb anvils listed. I'll probably have to weigh it if anyone wants it and is concerned about the weight. I bought it just to show how anvils were made before solid tool steel castings.

    Wagon Coal Forge Aug 10

    I have this very cool antique forge, with a pretty nice functional Royal (Canedy OTTO Mfg Co Chicago Heights, Ill USA) hand blower. The fire bed is poured in a metal surround (rusted through on one side) from some sort of conglomerate like concrete and it’s all mounted on basically a small steel wheel wagon, there are some wooden pieces rotted away on the front axle where a big T handle mounted to turn and push/pull the rig, but could be rebuilt to make it more functional again. The duct work from the blower to the bottom of the forge is missing.

    Super cool piece of Americana history! Asking $300

    I have a coal forge with electric fan and anvil for sale. I bought this set from a young man who made it in 2009 for competition. He showed at the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo where he won a Blue Ribbon. I used the forge once and performance was excellent. I am asking $1,000 for this set or OBO. I will sell them separately.

    The anvil is 16 1/2 inches long and 7 inches high and weighs 70 lbs. As indicated in the picture it is mounted onto a log and is 33 inches from the ground.

    The forge dimensions are 36" in height; 28 x 28, fire pit is 6" surrounded by refractory concrete. It has a tool area, 11" x 28", on the side as indicated in the pictures.

    I moved to a subdivision and have been reported to the home owners association. We will not be moving for at least another 5 to 8 years and I hate to see this great piece of equipment just get stored in a storage building.

    Kohlswa Anvil May 10

    Norford anvil.jpg - 22040 Bytes
    Am selling this Swedish made anvil for those buyers looking for a quality anvil at a reasonable price. This anvil has been worked; but still very usable. I’ve hardly used it for the past 21 years. No cracks or repairs. These Type B-41 anvils are hard to find, especially in this good condition. Imported from Sweden to USA by the Swedish-American Steel Corporation before 1960. The Kohlswa brand is one of the best made and most highly sought after anvils around. Kohlswa (has been in business for over 400 years.) And this one is a perfect size; it is big enough to handle all of the shop work. And at 98 pounds it can easily be brought to the jobsite, this anvil gives you the best of both worlds. Made from cast steel, the face is flat and has only several small chips along edges; the horn is nice. Good size for a farrier, since one man can lift it at 98+ Lbs. Still has a good ping and rebound. I prefer local pickup, but if buyer wishes it shipped I will crate and delivery to your carrier anywhere inside loop 410 San Antonio, TX. For an additional $50.00. However the buyer will be responsible for arranging shipping!! I only drop off at the carrier.

    The measurements of this 98 Lb Kohlswa anvil are: overall length 22 1/8", face 3 1/2" X 13 1/2", horn 6 3/4", height 10", hardie hole 7/8”, pritchel hole 1/2", base 8 1/2" X 9", weight 89 lb. Shipping weight approximately 130lbs? First offer over $275.00 takes it. I know that is cheap for this Anvil, but I’m in need of the space and the blasted doctors tell me it’s time to quit. I have some Metal working books, and tongs that I will throw in if you pick it up.

    Pexto Stake Plate with 10 Stakes July 09

    I would like to list the following in the classified section of the HABA.org website:

    Pexto Stake Plate with 10 Stakes (click to enlarge)

    IMAG0108b.jpg IMAG0109b.jpg IMAG0110b.jpg
    It's the big plate, 37.5x8", with eight of the most common stakes. I have been unable to find any information on the other two stakes. One is a small round flat stake with a large bolt on the bottom and marked 910-2. The other is a 55lb anvil that I have never seen before on any stake plate. It has no markings at all so it may not be a Pexto product but it fits the plate perfectly.

    The bead rollers on the bottom shelf are not included but are also for sale.

    I'm asking $1400 for the stake plate with all of the stakes.

    Thank you very much.
