Default Armitage anvil

Found a 90lb one for sale Still waiting on pics from the guy. He uis asking $125. Depending on condition is this something worth looking at? I have no use for an anvil right now but I would like to tinker around with smithing a bit.... I figure I can really irritate the neighbors

They are a very good anvil. Made by the Mouse Hole Forge in England. The price is very good if it is in any type of good shape. Just a little over $1 per lb. is pretty good these days.

My humble opinion.

Yeah,Brian-i would definitely second you on that.Even most damage can be fixed or worked around,the critical part is wether it's still "alive"-tough to assertain over long distance.Not at all an expert on classy anvils,all i ever had is a couple of old Vulcans,but anything that rebounds would work.
