  1. well so the drive shaft would be a good option? i know i need mass for forging, currently hitting with a 4lbs hammer.
  2. well the 4140 round bar is hardened to 28 from the manufacturer, also ill be making knives and small work.
  3. Hi folks, im looking for a budget Anvil, my budget is around 300 dlls , My current Anvil is a 25 Lb RR on a 40# wood stand I know any anvil would be 100 times better than my current anvil. Atlas and NC are around 300 dlls and 70#... i can get 200# of 10" x 12" in height for 225 dlls, of course no hardy hole, so probably would spend another 50 - 80 to a shop . if you guys can help i would appreciate it. been forging for around 6 months, times a week, 3 hours a day average, forging mostly knives, and tools for friend. ive only used 5160 for knives and tools. and a36 for gene
