Default Great Explanation Of Anvil Numbering

Skip ahead to about 13:15 in video

To address those with slow connections:

Three part number; 1 2 22
1st number is "hundred weight" times 112lbs.
2nd number "quarter weight" times 112/4 or 28 lbs. Never to exceed 3.
3rd number "pounds" Never to exceed 27.

So 1 2 22 = 112 + 56 + 22 = 190 lbs.
'The time has come', the Walrus said,'To talk of many things: Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax Of cabbages and kings'
