Not sure how to get this word out to everyone, but will start here.
A lot of older NWBA members will fondly remember ROGER OLSEN who passed away over 10 years ago. He was a friend and mentor. He lived in Mazama, WA. I’m helping Mary Sharman ( his ex partner) finally deal with his shop after it sitting basically untouched for the last 10+ years.
Although most of his equipment went to fellow smiths shortly after his death, there is still a lot of small things in his shop. I will be bringing them over for the Swaptoberfest in hopes of generating some $$ for Mary and helping to cover some of my time and travel costs. Some of the items I’ll be bringing over to sell include:
325 Lb anvil ( with dedicated hardy tools)l, two post vises, small shop tables, lots of tongs and hammers and tooling and some misc. other guy stuff. I’ll also be bringing a modest selection of pure iron in 12 ft lengths that has been stored outside for probably 15 years ( think Eastern WA, snow country dry, a bit rusty, but one trip in the forge will take care of that). I look forward to reconnecting with some old faces as I’ve been out of the loop for several years ( joined NWBA in late 80’s). Still making my living pounding iron though.

Hey Barry, I would be interested in some of this stuff alright as I’m just beginning trying to kit out without buying new as much as possible. Any idea what you would like to charge for the Anvil and Post Vices ?
