Very cool vise. Combination anvil and leg vise. Jenn should make one of these.

The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

I can see the uses for that.

The virtue is always a cover for the sin. That's the key to understanding the modern left. Whatever they're accusing you of doing, they are doing themselves but more enthusiastically. And that's definitely the story of Justin Trudeau. Tucker Carlson

Neat anvil but a bit pricey!

that is very cool.

I love the dovetail mount for the anvil.

I've seen a few of these here and there and this anvil is by far the cleanest.

Was this actually his?

here is a video of him working. Watch how he swings the hammer. there are many today that say you don't raise your shoulder.

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.

That is a great video, I like how he said you have to take what you want to make and think all the steps backwards, then build it from the bottom up
