Welcome to the NEW anvilfire Tailgate sales page. This is our new prototype eMarket / flea market, also known as "tailgating" in the blacksmithing community. An on-line flea market or "boot" sale in the spirit of the old Blacksmiths Junkyard.

This version is a preliminary system with few features and limited category pages. More categories will be added according to demand. Our fully developed system will be database driven and have many more advanced features. If you are buying OR selling please read our Terms of Service.

BUYER TIP OF THE DAY : Beware the Painted Lady
Friday May 24, 2019 - 14/26
Watch out for tools and machines that normally have bare metal surfaces that have been painted. A painted anvil face can hide pits, cracks or weld repairs. Machines that have not been used in many years often have ways (sliding surfaces) that have been painted and must have the paint scraped off to opperate. Ask yourself why the machine was not kept in operating condition.
