Did you have any problems with it after a while like gumming up somehow?

I did not.  I used a skateboard bearing (sealed) and put a small piece of aluminum can on the back side to keep the inner race from rubbing on the leather.

Nice score Ron. If your going to do a wood stand use the end grain set up like the first video, you want it solid with No flex and as heavy as possible, Put a layer of liquid nails or some such between the anvil and the stand, it'l kill the ring somewhat. It sounds cool in the movies but you do not want to listen to that all day. You also want a solid mount to the stand, U-Bolts, all thread and clamps..Lots of ways to do it. That one looks like its got some life left in it yet
Enjoy

Deer are a cunning adversary.....eyes like 8X binoculars, ears like CIA listening devices and a nose like your mother's when you came in from a late night party in high school. :-\

Beware of the old matriarchal does......they'll be the first to bust ya' every time! :doh:

Nice one. 

I go to a few farm auctions and while there are not many anvils sold these days you do get to see some interesting stands in some of the old shops.  Lots of them are just a big section of tree trunk wide enough to stand up to the use.  A few are cut down steel barrels that probably started as 30 gallon barrels and are filled with sand or concrete.   There have been some made of wood that were built to hold the anvil without chaining it down by using blocks of wood bolted to the top that fit into the bottom outline of the anvil. 

Thanks Stan, not many farm auctions down here so the best options I have seen is on Craigslist. Thanks for the internet I have seen the blocks of wood that you have mentioned.
