I recently inheirited my great-grand father McClellen Johnson’s 100 pound Mousehole anvil. I have reason to believe it may have belonged to his father, Miles, before Mac acquired it.

The anvil has not been forged on for 75 years. This morning I cleaned it up: wire brush and linseed oil on the body and 120 grit flapper disc on the top and horn. I have decided to make it the main anvil in my shop.
