More specifically the Blacksmith/metal forming section.  http://www.piehtoolco.com/contents/en-us/d688.html

And now I know that there are two types of anvils, farrier and blacksmith. 

I was looking around to see who, if any, make sheet metal stake beds, and found this business.  And immediately thought of you and you ever more cramped work space with a need to fill it more. ;)

Oh, I wish.

I haven't had time to light up my forge in years- just one more hobby that I've had to set aside in order to squeeze a living out of this niche-market nonsense. 😂 (Note that of the current nine 'summer projects', exactly one is NOT shop or tool related.)

I do use my anvil on occasion to straighten parts or as a rigid surface for hammering pins in and out, etc. but that's about it.

I'll get back to it one of these days. 😁

Doc.

You should mail me your anvil. Just to get it out of your way.

You can't just leave an anvil lying around. They're an attractive nuisance to coyotes. 😁

 I'm sure it'll fit in a Flat Rate mailer if you fold it right.

But is it a proper ACME anvil?

A little knowledge is..... the default setting.
