Ad in Dallas Craigslist for 17 anvils


Recommended Posts

If you average the weight it's #176 each. $3.00x176=$528 each.
$528 is on the high end for an anvil that size around here. Doesn't leave a person much room to make a profit. "there is a lot of money to be made here for someone" refers to the seller. Lol.
If he threw in the 440 pound double horn(Peddinghaus?)then it'd be an interesting deal to consider!
I hope someone goes to see them to at least post a picture or make a report.

I don't have any problem with him trying to sell his wares. But, offering something for sale without offering pictures of the goods is absolutely ridiculous.

This is the perfect example of an idiot.

Let me see if I have this correct. This guy wants to sell 17 anvils for approximately $9000 sight unseen.

If anybody jumps at that offer then perhaps they would also be interested in a little lake front property I have to offer. One side faces the water, the top; there is an abundance of wildlife, water moccasins, alligators, snapping turtles and muskrats; most of the property is densely foliated moss, water lilies and algae; the property is easily accessible, by swamp buggy, air boat and parachute; the property is very secluded, nearest neighbor is 12 feet up and 25 miles west. Property boundaries are estimates only, the gators ate the surveyor. This is a cash only deal and for an additional $10K I will send you instructions on how to help me get $25 million out of Nigeria and will share 40% of the money with you. :ph34r:

Woody, throw in an anvil and I'd trade some ocean front property here in New Mexico for it!

Sure a lot of folks on the net who seem to think that admitting that they were thieves and dishonest people was a good way to inspire confidence in others wrt sight unseen business deals. Never quite understood that.

Thomas I have just the anvil to sweeten the deal, its a 75 lb cast iron swayback beauty with just enough casting pits in the face to give it character. It says Mexico on the side but I think the Chinese just wanted to blame the piece of junk on someone else. When the mexicans get wind of it I expect the first shots in the Taco/Chopsticks war to be fired shortly afterwards. Right now it is on loan to an aspiring young blacksmith. I figure anything he does to it will be an improvement and obviously increase its value by at least a shiny new nickel.

Sure I always have something that *I* consider too damaged to use that I can let go for a *Premium* *Price*! Like I have the *ORIGINAL* bucket of hammers as in "he's dumber than a bucket of hammers" that for you I'd sell for nineteen ninety five *hundred* dollars in easy weekly payments....I'm just back of the old Same place...

You sound like a "buy here pay here" car lot, tack on 100% finance charge on a premium priced vehicle, then charge 25% interest, require weekly payments, and repo the vehicle 24 hours after the first late payment...

I am so glad I know about those snarky places from other peoples mistakes.
