I Forge Iron

Anvil Found

Recommended Posts

Well, I actually did find an anvil half-buried in my back yard, but the site had been a blacksmith shop/forge shop for 50-60 years. It was a pretty nice 250 pound H-B in excellent condition. Made my day. Not quite the same as finding one in the woods behind your house.

I don't know or remember if I posted this, but here goes.

After my son worked about 3 hrs to get it out of the woods and he come home and legs and arms trembling, I told him I'd give him $20 for the work.

Can I take your son hunting? "

He said he tried getting to his shoulder to carry out. Like he wanted to a few years ago with hunting. Of course with the deer I told him NO!!! you'll get your A** shot carry that thing out of here. He is pretty stout and loves a challenge and hates to be beat by anything whether its cards, sports, push-ups or weight lifting.

Pete I once picked up a bunch of army shirts that had been used to make a sling to carry a deer out with. They had thrown them away afterwards due to the blood stains. I washed them a couple of times with a blood remover and had my smithing shirts for a coupled of years. Course I would have worn them stained too.

Looks like the original owner was right handed and kept the horn to his left, as I should be..................mb
