Default Big collection of anvils

https://youtu.be/bI11wqTUKls

This video of Abom79 in Texas at a guy that collects and sells blacksmith tools. I guess he rebuilds power hammers.

He has a huge collection of anvils, probably numbering in the thousand or so. And vices, and hammers, etc.
some teaser photos.

I think he definitely has more anvils than Jennifer.

That shit is just wrong Pricks like him are why every lump of iron and steel vaguely resembling an old clapped out anvil go for a fucking fortune around here. I notice he is putting every one to use too

Those have to be some beefy shelving units. Probably got them at Harbor Freight...

His heirs are going to hate him once he is gone! They'll probably have a huge pit dug and dump them all in it with him on the bottom--no zombie resurrection going on there! Personally, I'd rather collect bird feathers or butterflies...

PS: cause of death will be collapse of one of the shelving units on top of him...

I've heard of anvil salesmen, but I would guess that would be him. Does he have a carpetbag with samples?

Definetly more anvils than I have. Anvils, vises, you name it.

I often wonder what someone like the fella does for work to be able to afford all the stuff. building, tooling, etc, etc.
