[QUOTE=cutter]

and here is the "rating plate"; some of the lettering is not readable but there is enough to clearly identify it as a Hay Budden, Brooklyn, NY. I have no idea what "MANUEL ????? RINGO" had to do with anything. Maybe this anvil was made to commemorate some famous gunfight or something. Maybe they were horsethieves that the owner killed with his hammer, I dunno.

Cutter, Just a guess, but I'd bet the "Manuel?????Ringo" has been beat to he!! and gone and probably originally said something along the lines of non-ringing anvil. Nice looking anvil one way or the other.

Assuming you meant cyl. as in cylinder, that's not a cly.
It's a roller that I salvaged out of some kind of old floor scrubber years ago.
Made a cheap roller stand & have been using it with my bandsaw lately.

Thumbs up Yup.

lolol
I just had the chance to look at it in the sunlight (raining yesterday, remember?)and came back in here to report that it indeed says "manufacturing" but I believe it says "Hay Budden Manufacturing Co."
In fact the "C" that I mistook for the "O" in "Ringo" is clearly open even in the photo.
lol, so sad to see yet another romantic legend die before it even got to bloom. I was becoming partial to the horse thief notion myself.

Thanks, Paul. I emailed the seller & asked about the serial number dating. I would like to know just for curiosity.
I also invited him to come see us.

Thanks, Dawg.

Given the location, and the weight of that one on ePay, the price really isn't that outrageous, based on what I read on the smithing sites.
You gotta really want to work to need a 240# anvil, and I don't.
