Northern Industrial Cast Iron Anvil - 50-Lb.
50 lb anvil
No one else seems to stock these anymore. Ordered this one after waiting on a back order from someone else for several months. This one showed up right away.

I like its size. It is easy to move. It is stable the legs are the right size.

Great price, decent quality
I bought the 50 lb. because I needed something to pound on occasionally -- flattening, bending, rivets, etc. I'm not a full-time blacksmith so I didn't want to plunk down a lot of cash for something that gets occasional use, nor did I want to destroy my vise. This product fits the bill.

Great price poor quality
This Anvil is very cheap in comparison to most other anvils. To buy even a small anvil would cost nearly twice as much. However with this great price comes a trade off of poor quality. This anvil is not tool steel and will deform to most hammer impacts. In addition the anvil's face is riddled with little craters which require the user to mill down.

Can't beat for the $$$
Its heavy, stable and metal. How bad can it be? If you do occasional metal work its better than beating on something like your vice. I did spray paint mine around the parts that I don't hammer on to keep it from rusting, the paint could be a little better quality, it chips very easily.

55 Lb Anvil
This anvil does exactly what I bought it to do. It is just right for shaping, forming or flatening a piece of metal.

I got the 55lb anvil, because I knew it would only be a matter of time before I busted another vise(beating on and around it). I got the 70lb for a friend(ferrier) of mine and he said it's perfect, he loves it. You can beat the anvil, but not the price!!!

Not a bad anvil for the cost. It has a nice working surface. I would have prefered a Ferriers anvil but couldn't fine one...

Cast Iron Anvil — 55-Lb
It's hard to get excited about an anvil but I can say the price was right and I find I have more uses for it than I thought I would. I did have to put some rust resistant paint on it since I have it outside.

I was very pleased with the delivery and value of my anvil. I have needed one for years, and procrastinated purchasing. I would recommend this to anyone that works in metal.
