I just love craigslist! Just drove 20miles to look at a 115lb anvil advertized for $125. I called a day after it was advertized and figured it would be sold. He said several had called and would not be able to come by to see it until after 4:00 pm. I asked if it had any markings on the side and he said no. I said I would be right over. When I arrived I checked the surface plate and other than a few nicks and chips on the edges, it was sound and the ring and recoil was great. I paid him the money and loaded into my Saturn sedan passenger's seat.
I stoped at a convenience store and noticed the letters TREN within a partial diamond and smiled. Must be clean living. I will spend the time to clean a portion of the plate to be able to forge my silverwork. I will post images when I get the time.
