I hope there are many more to come!!

I must say that cutters vise, anvil, Delta Bandsaw, and Clausing drill press have all inspired me greatly to begin a search for old tools that can be brought back to life again!
There is no better feeling in the world than bringing these old quality tools back to life!
It hurts me to see the abuse some people have given them, but I guess that's part of it.
Thanks fellas!
I told you.
And btw, you probably scored a $400 - $600 anvil there that you got for free.
AZ coyote can prolly shed more light on that & with the chips I guess it might not bring as much but a 200 lb anvil is pretty dear these days.
So yeah, YOU SUCK! bigtime.

And thanks for the kind remarks.

Thanks Tony, but you know what? I really don't have time for a new hobby.
I got too many projects going to be taking up anything new.
That is, unless it becomes necessary for the project at hand.......

Fellas,
Anyone care to tell me about Hardy tools?
I've never seen many of them personally. Are they usually just a square bar about 6" -12" long or so?
I'd love to have one for my Hay Budden. I've seen some on ebay from time to time.
Are there different types of Hardy tools, or are they all just a square, straight bar?

Hardie tools are any tool that drops into the square hole on the tail of the anvil. The most common is a cold cut, basicly an inverted cold chisel a couple inches wide used to cut stock. There are other tools mostly mini shaped anvils for making shapes.
The round hole a couple inches over from the hardie is a Pritchel hole. If you're making up s hooks, you can drop a round tool into the hardie, and a pin into the pritchel and wind hot stock around the form in the hardie hole.
Other than a cold cut, most smiths will work a lot of years withut using a hardie tool.

There are tons of different hardy tools. Hot cuts, swages, fullers and just about anything someone has built that they need to stay in one place on the anvil top. I have a hot cut and a home made spring fuller.

I went out to take pictures of the hot cut and spring fuller and the batteries took a dump after this picture of my hold down. This is on my anvil, a 224# Hay- Budden. I got this for $75.

Here is my anvil and one of my leg vises. The vise is a 85#, 5 1/4" Indian Chief. The stand is built on top of a tractor rear wheel center. They make a great stand, it pays to stop by tractor dealerships and dig through their scrap bins.
