Seen this anvil in a estate sale ad
Looks clean not sure on condition, brand or price.

Photo 17 on floor
Also looks like a craftsman 100 in the junk pile

The grinder is nice, and the light might be worth more than the anvil!
Lot's of nothing in that sale.

Good thing that I didn't go then. I have to save my money up so that I can spend it all when Lee Valley opens in Windsor.

That illustrates why I never go to estate sales for tools. People always think vintage tools are worth a fortune. They never account for both wear and tear, but also that they usually need clean up and bearings. That said, I did buy a nice 17" Delta drill press at an estate sale but it was nothing but tools and organized by a company that knew what they were selling so the prices were realistic.

I goto to a lot of estate sales give me something to do Thursday and Friday for lunch. I find something good in about 1 out of 6 sales. Most are far priced first day the last day is when you fined your best deals
I buy in summer keep some and sell rest in winter I make enough to fund my wood working and blacksmith hobby.
Here is from a few weeks ago plumb ax plumb aze and Stanley 95 marking Guage 12.00 total keeping it all
