    That square hole is called a "hardy hole."

    Nice!! I'd love to find some hardy tools to put with my anvil. I think everyone scrapped all their old metal when the price went crazy though.

    Here in Canada tremendous amounts of scrap was used in WWII, farmers were coming out of a tough time, so anything that wasn't being used was put towards the war effort.
    Blacksmiths were ahead of there time they were the original recyclers, in image 3 you can still see the threads from the axle your Grandfather made it from.
