The avil search continues
I'm still looking for an anvil to start doing some blacksmithing.......the propane forges (yes two at this point) are slowly progressing and I'm sure having an anvil ready to begin working on would light a fire under me to finish the forges sooner. Good old anvils are hard to find. I'm located in NC and they aren't nearly as common as they seem to be in the OH, PA, and NorthEast regions.
Antique stores think they are made of gold.........auctions take too much time and the price can get ridiculous........so far eBay has the best selection and prices are fair, but shipping will kill you once you get over the 100lb range. I'm spreading the word with every one I know, and I'm starting to hear about anvils, but it's typically my sister's husband's dad's friend's type of thing.
I'll keep up the search for another month or so, but then I may have to bite the bullet and get one off of eBay and either pay for shipping or take a weekend trip to pick it up.
