Ever tried to buy an anvil? Nothing big, but say around 75 lbs or so, just an old anvil...
We got a small auction outfit here in our town of about 12,000 folks. Its all on line. I say one from a local estate sale out of the guys barn. I could use one out here on my place I do some welding n stuff. I got in at $20 bucks, next day I checked and popped for $80, next day I hit it for $190. Now I am getting interested, $200 bucks, you crazy, not going there, but I followed it, it sold at $375. I knew the guy that finally won it and saw him down at the Tractor supply the other day. I said man are crazy on that anvil. He no, he needed one out on his place and has looked for years. He then asked if I had ever done any research on anvils? No, not really, he said do it, they are like gold. I did, he was right, so I am still with out an anvil. Then we got to talking about how somethings are as good today as they were hundreds of years ago.
I have owned a gun since age 5 and all my life have used iron sights. But as I approach 70, the ole eyeballs are not what they once were. So I have bought some scopes. Its taken a long time to get used to using a scope atop a gun. To me that is high tech. Do I need a scope that all I need to do is point my weapon in the general direction and pull the trigger when the thing beeps or the green light goes off?????? I will pass
I aint sure how this fit in on the electronisc and guns thread, but, it caught my attention.
I've got great grandpa's anvil. Only markings I found so far are , SVEDEN, and 125.
I'm thinking the 125 refers to weight. I'll do a little (damn little) rubbing on it and see if I can find any markings that indicate a date. A good anvil is an awesome thing.
Nope, no money will take it from me.
