Nice Craigslist Mousehole just popped up

Recommended Posts


Someone on Craigslist in Spencer, MA just posted a pre-1830 Mousehole that appears to be in quite nice shape.  Clean face and edges.  The poster claims it is between 80 and 100 pounds and is asking $200 because they believe it needs a professional restoration.  All it needs it to have the bird poop and barn dust wire brushed off.


Good hunting,

did you pick her up?

This evening I will be looking at an 1837 William foster 101lb anvil at $200, decent shape, but a decent price.

I almost made a go for it yesterday but I was on dad duty the entire day.  The poster referred to it as in need of professional restoration (rather incorrectly) and I feel that will scare most people away.  I really don't need it but I want it....

There are some nice anvils and such for sale in the NY Craigslist.  There was an insane garage sale posted on June 9 that I missed.  I would have driven out there.  Multiple anvils, swage blocks, tongs, hardy tools, you name it.....all in one garage.

Hey Lou.  Just talked to that guy.  He said he has someone coming down tonight to look at it but if he bails he'll give me a call tomorrow and I can go pick it up.  Crossing my fingers the other guy flakes.

Did it work out?
