My guess is he is an eccentric who collected most of them long ago before there was any demand.

35 years ago my father bought a very nice Swedish made anvil (among many other things) that weighs about 100 lbs. at a yard sale for $5.00. He has numerous forging tools and equipment that he paid very little for at auctions and sales long before the internet. Nothing remotely close to the pictures shown here though!
It started hitting the fan in the 1950's

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?
