We dig this photo that reader hmboo posted to the Toolmonger photo pool for several reasons — first, because it shows tool guys doing actual metalwork. But if you look around you’ll see a bunch of sweet tools hanging around in the shot.
I think my favorite is the massive beat-to-hell stump the anvil is sitting on — that bad boy has seen some action and more than its share of beat-downs. Props to the museum in Wolfenbüttel, Germany for the daily mini-courses they put on. Things like this inspire a lot of folks get into metalwork.
