SOFA tailgating

Southern Ohio Forge and Anvil held their quadstate round-up this past week. One of the main features of the conference is the tailgating.

You could see rows of vises.

Wet rows with plenty of rusty metal. Rusty especially since it rained Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There were trailer loads of tools. This trailer even included some old traps for my son to drool over.

This trailer contained many rivets of all different sizes. They were sold by the pound and got cheaper on the last day of the conference.

Miniature anvils. The owner said he still had 1500 at home.

Here are a couple of the many hats of Jeff from Persimmon Tree Forge.

Oh wait! Here's a brief dry moment.

Have forge, will travel.

And last the "big" tongs.
