  1. Where would a beginner (without bags of money laying around all over the place) do best in finding some hammers and tongs to get started with? ebay seems to kill you on shipping costs, due to the weight of things. Can anyone give a rough idea of what one would expect to pay for hammers in the 3lb-5lb range, and tongs? Also if there are "bare necessity" types of hammers, hardy hole tools, and tongs one should pursue to start with I'd appreciate the tips. We plan to focus on knife making and perhaps some simple projects like hooks and camping gear.
  2. Here's another cheap/broke newbie trying to figure out if he should throw down $250 for this. I am very new to blacksmithing but am quickly learning that it sure is nice to use the right tool for the right job; so I'm itching for a "real" anvil. Anywho, could anybody comment on this anvil off craigslist? It looks halfway decent, owner said there were not any noticeable cracks and had good 'ping'. Not sure about rebound. I've only been looking in the market for several weeks, so I'm not really sure how much or how cheap I should be looking for. He's also about 2 hours away so it's helpful to know how close to the ball park he is. FYI currently I am using a 60ish pound saw doctors anvil a friend is letting me hit on, (little scared I might should not), or a railroad tie, or a 3/4' steel plate (which by the way I will continue to be thankful for...so I'm not that picky either). Thankyou for any input!
  3. I'm a newbe and found this anvil that might be for sale. I'm learning here so I need all the help I can get. Any idea what it might be worth? Looks pretty beat up. I don't need anything expensive. Just something to get me started.
