anvil lifting

jeremy k

One of the guys in our group got an anvil yrs ago by betting a guy he could lift it by the horn w/ 1 hand and carry it to his car. He is now retired and had brought that same anvil to a meeting to see who could do it - 2 of us were able to lift it as he did yrs ago. I can't remember what the wieght was but it was somewere between 100 and 125lbs. - JK

[ once had a RR rail AS0 that weighed a bit over 50 Lbs that gave to a friend. He asked if I had a spare. I picked it up one handed and gave it to him. I warned him it was heavy and it still surprised him.

Oh, to be young and spry and not have an aching back! Yeah, I remember carring my anvil out to the truck, my swage block, sacks of coal, now I know why my back is so bad. Take CARE of you back! :angry:
