    Hi Andrew,

    Dont know much about the blower unfortunately. I got it at a swap meet a while ago now, its in quite good working order and blows well. Its made out of cast alloy material - standard hand cranked blower - the only marking on it is 60A on the other side. You can also run it off a V belt on the small pulley.

    I like the hand blowers as they basically slow down and stop blowing when you let go, so it saves a bit of fuel as the fire is not burning away when you are at the anvil, then it starts the fire up quickly when you come back.

    Cheers

    He just made a monster 400kg one too. Unfortunately the horn looks really light, not nearly enough depth were it meets the body.10492270_982939018481829_5264482455516204079_n.jpg

    It was a slug of something like 4140, from a water jet place. It was my first anvil as I couldn't afford a real one at the time. It still gets used as it is super flat and has sharp edges.

    I also forgot one....

    may appear bit light but the horn is actualy 140mm thick where it meets the body of the anvil. The foot of the anvil is 65mm thick not including the upset block. 1400mm tip to tip.
