I used to play in Grandpa’s workshop. Ever time he caught me hitting something in a vise he would point and say THAT IS WHAT THE ANVIL if for.
Now I know a lot of you know I am Grandpa and proud that the littlest one is interested in what I do.(My shadow)
BUT SHE was NOT the one that did this. IT was ME !
And I didn’t hit it very hard. Just often.!
Another challenge ahead of me. Fire up the forge, were gonna do some blacksmithin’ Whoo Hoo my second favorite hobby !

Just goes to show, you should have listened to your old grandpa, he knew what he was talking about.

Well if you can’t put it back together, then here’s a link to a place where you can find the parts, which is often a very difficult thing to do.
