View Full Version : 200lb fisher anvil trade for bader Blll
11-25-2007, 12:41 PM
I've decided I need a nice used Bader Blll 72" belt grinder or a KMG 72"belt grinder with 6" or better contact wheel. I'll sell my 200lb fisher forging anvil to pay for it, but thought maybe someone out there's got an extra or not used very much belt grinder that they'd like to trade instead. Any takers. I live in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Shipping could get expensive. I can meet with truck about 200 miles out.

Will it fit in a flat-rate mailing box? :D
One of these days I want to get one of those flat anvils. I have a special one for forging rings and arches. The middle is about 1/2" lower than the ends :eek:

Just some more info. The anvil is a standard horned forging anvil. Not a farriers anvil. It is in very good condition with near perfect working edges. It has a great rebound and a very clean face and horn. It has the #200 on one of the feet along with the round protrusions in the front and back for bolt mounting as nearly all fisher anvils do. I will take some pictures tommorow in the daylight and email them to anyone serious about a trade. I weighed it on a doctors scale and it read 203#.

I'll try to send these pics. Tell me what you think. I'll try to send some more.

I guess I'm sending these backward in the way I took them. The blemish is in the back near the pritchel hole. Looks like someone cut with a band saw or plasma torch 1/4" long 1/16" wide and 1/8" deep.

That enough pictures for your fingers to pet the screen. I cleaned up the top and horn with 120grit belt sander to avoid unwanted surprises. "That is the hardest s#*t I've ever attempted to sand" As you can see, this anvil has a beautiful face aside from the tiny blemish that my or your tig welder could fix in about 1 minute. There is not one stress crack or hairline on the face or horn that I can see. There is a small casting flaw down the base just smaller than my thumb that isn't anywhere near the buisiness end. I doubt this anvil was ever used at length. Certainly never by anyone with any ambition. The corners don't look like they've been rounded yet. Damm near new. Has a very good rebound.
Can't buy it without a price ;) interested though and heading down yer way.

I was hoping I could just trade and do it that way. On the other hand, a cash sale is all right too. I'll sell it for what I paid. $4.25/ pound. Not in a hurry to give it away as I'm still contemplating keeping it and just buying a new KMG outright for the same price. 200 lb fishers are relatively uncommon. It seems there is always 150 lb and then the next size you find is a 300lb. I'm not sure why that is, but I've looked and looked on aution sites and can't find where a 200.lb fisher was sold. Maybe someone else has. Now you know.

I have one just like it and in about the same condition. Got it at an auction in Hobbs, NM for $300.00, but would not part with it for less than $1000.00. I think you are in line with the $4.25 a #.
