Wow, looks like enough stuff to set up a dozen or more blacksmiths!

I've never seen palletized anvils before

I must've had a busy day yesterday, I like near was clued in on these ads, and although I looked at the first picture, didn't scroll through to see all that. And to think I was in Decatur last weekend for a wedding, only 2-3 hours further south....
