I don’t buy a lot of tools but this past week added one old, one new, and created one to add to my pile.
I found this old shoe anvil at out local pawn shop/junk store last weekend and couldn’t pass it up. It will help with my ever increasing level of shoemaking and might just serve as a rivet set for other leather projects.
And finally, I have nearly finished a buck-saw that’s been lingering in my mind for some time now. This is it assembled, having sawed a log just to be sure it worked, but lots of finishing touches will need to be added to be a suitable tool. I’ll round the edges and spruce it up with some carving I think, but for now, it makes a nice take-down saw. Total spent: about $20 US.
