The unusual thing about this anvil is that it is a production full sized anvil fabricated from flame cut plate and forged feet. The body is made of 5" plate finisher to 4.850" (123.2 mm) thick plate and the weight is 240 lbs. (109 kg) The feet are a universal forging that fit in all positions so only one die was needed to make feet for a given size anvil.

Audnam advertised anvils from 7 lbs to 300 lbs (3.2 to 136 kg) and making custom anvils up 580 pounds (263 kg). It is unknown how many were fabricated as above. The smallest anvils may have been forged

Length 31.5 (800 mm)
Height 11.875 (302 mm)
Base 11 x 11.5
Hardy hole 1.25 sq. (31.75 mm)
Prichel 5/8" (15.9 mm)
