Default Refflinghaus South German 460lbs

So 5 or 6 years ago I contacted the seller of Refflinghaus anvils in the USA and he said he doesn't have any of the model #58 in stock and that he does not get them often when they arrive from Germany.

I called him intially every 6 months or so with no luck. Then I started to send him an email every few months. then about 1 or so a month.

then I get an email saying he called Germany and they have 1 in stock.

Before I knew it, it was on the ship over here.

it arrived last week or so.

The anvil on top is the 275lbs #12 Peddinghaus.

I am glad you got hooked up with one! I hope it did not cost you an arm or a leg!

Laugh out loud.

I kinda thought so in a way.

I also started to build a new shop/teaching facility. So, was like oh, crap. How am I gonna pay for it now?

And I got lucky enough 1 person was in the market for 1 leg, 1 arm and 1 thumb.

Does this mean you own the only one in the United States or one of the very few?

I have been following your thread on the shop/teaching facility lately. I sincerly hope that it works out for you! Even though it costs you an arm, leg and thumb!
