another new (to me) Anvil

I was on my way back from the fishing lodge and my wife and I stopped at a pawn shop to look around. They never had anything i was interested in but after talking with the owner a while he told me about a German guy that has a large anvil for sale. I phoned the guy and he invited me out to have a look at it. Once I got there I met a gentleman about 45-50 years old from Germany. He is a master blacksmith and welder. He had a sea-can full of equipment that he brought over from Germany. He had 2 identical anvils that are 240-250kgs. He only needed one. He also had a tubing roller, which I have been looking for a long time. He wanted $1500.00 for the anvil and $2000.00 for the tubing roller. I offered him $2500.00 cash and he accepted. We stayed and talked a long time with this fellow about many different things. He also had a 50kg power hammer very similar to the one Ed has but much smaller foot print. He was very talented blacksmith, we looked at lots of samples he had lyeing around.
