    Do you have Craigslist in Canada? I bought a 300lb Fisher, that I found right here in my town, off of CL.

    I just looked and yes there is a craigslist here. Nada. I'll keep my eyes open.

    I came across this Rigid Anvil and it states that it is made from Drop-Forged? Is that the same thing as Cast? I found a Canadian supplier that sells a 77 lbs one for $710. Something to save for.

    Check the wikipedia entry on "Forging".

    Actually I did read the wikipedia entry on Forging and was unsure if Drop-Forging gives a steel product or a product like Cast-iron. I was looking for some clarification from the knowledgeable members here.

    Drop forged would mean it is steel not cast iron.

    I don't think that a 77lb Rigid for $700 is a good deal, actually sounds bad to me.

    Look for old used anvils from Fisher, Peter Wright, Trenton, Mousehole, HayBudden, etc. Paying about $2 per lb is a decent deal but if the anvil is pristine and big (300lb+) expect to pay up to twice that.

    I have been checking kijiji, but haven't since monday. There's a few new ads I hadn't seen before. I might have to go return all the empties I got laying around and get some cash together.

    I did find some abandoned railroad track rails behind my finace's office..... But they are full length pieces.

    My dad has one made out of rail road track. It was my great grandfather's who made it. About 18" long I think. I should have taken a picture when I was at his house this week.
