    Well fishing with a magnet

    Went out yesterday with a friend to walk our dogs,both Labs.As we were walking around my friend asks if I still had my magnet that I go magnet fihing with.I tell him yes and he shows me a old well out in the middle of nowhere,,the land was used back in the early 1920's to 1940's as he was told.He told me that a couple of days ago he took a magnet and some rope and threw it in the well and he herd something break like glass.We were thinking bottles? ,any way his magnet stuck to something that he could not pull up by himself.Long story short we put a bigger magnet on a stronger rope and pull up an old Anvil,about 50 to 100 lbs.Sorry no pictures,going back with a 5 gallon bucket with small holes drilled in the sides so bucket won't be so heavy pulling it up.
    Just a reminder,or some friendly advice,I told my buddy when throwing a magnet down into a well it's better to lower it in then throwing it down a breaking something

    What kind of magnet are you using to pull up a 100 pound anvil? And also, keep us posted on what you find!

    Lowering it, are you kidding

    If it was anything of value, it wouldn't be down there in the first place

    You would be surprised at what has been thrown down a well that had value. It was always considered a safe place to put valuables if you were attacked by "Injuns".

    Wells have also been used to hide murder weapons like knives and pistols as well as a good place for a child's toys to accidentally get tossed or dropped. Then there's always the occasional body tossed in or trapped there . . . along with whatever they were in possession of at the time.

    Come to think of it, a hundred pound anvil dropped onto someone in a well might be a murder weapon.

    "When under trial, let no one say: 'I am being tried by God.' For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone. . . . Do not be misled, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." --- James 1:13, 16, 17
