  1. Had a good time at the new salem hammer in yesterday. Peter Ross was the demonstrator, it was a great demo.I also learned by 1700 standards I AM a master smith LOL !
  2. theres no need for the share to be hard, the smith that I worked with would let them air cool, But he would say they had to be on there backs on a dirt floor running north and south! YA right. there is away to make a share that runs in sand last longer with out harding, But I can't tell, Its a trade secret.
  3. Well thats hard to read. Nice work!

  9. I started with a small Mouse Hole 125#, it was in tough shape. { was my dads anvil } The first anvil I bought was a mint 300# Peter Wright. I love that anvil. { that was 20 years ago, I was just out of high school. } Had a chance to buy my friends anvil 2 years ago 350# Hay Budden, it went for $1600.00. didn't get it but did go to a good home and will be used.
