A fellow I recently met was telling me a story about a buried anvil he remembers from childhood. We were discussing various topics and he comes out of the blue with this story. When he was a young man, aprox. 50 years ago, his grandad had a HUGE (according to him, maybe 750-1000lbs) anvil mostly buried in a spot he knows exactly where it is, with the point sticking up for something they did back in the last century. He told me he would be willing to help me dig it up, because he is interested in learning a bit about hand forging. He is building a post and beam building, frame is already up. I told him he absolutely needs hand forged hardware for it and I would tutor him in crafting some, if he was willing to make a deal on this beast. He seemed totally in line with this, and come the thaw, is willing to join me with the metal detector and go find this beast! I think it might be a horned bridge anvil, not sure. Problem is, May is a looong way off, and I find myself awake at nights thinking about it. Agh....patience grasshopper...
