    This is a great summary in case you don't want to purchase or read the books mentioned... Anvils in America is pretty big... and Mousehole isn't that bad...
    and Ken is a great guy!

    He has an ebay site and has alot of practical and good quality items.... actually has a shop down Melbo's way I believe.... he's been very helpful to me and is always willing to help out with advice and ideas..... a straight shooter .... no bull and no fluff....[winkthumb]

    I have one of the dreaded harbor freight anvils. I can say that I have little basis for comparison, but the one I have is a 55 lb anvil. It was cheap and it works alright. It really bounces more than I would like. And I really need to bind it to something more heavy. The platform I attached it to is failing so I need to rebuild it.
    I am working on finishing my first knife. I always seem to forget to take pictures.
