Chad J Posted April 24, 2010 Share Posted April 24, 2010 After alot of over time in the month of march I decided to splurge a little .... well a lot and buy a new anvil. The final two was this a Fontanini #460 and the Nimba gladiator. The deciding factor for the Fontanini was the cathedral windows on the base. it just has a lot of character. It also has a upsetting block on the other side. It is poured with H11 by a foundry in Arizona then he finishes them in his shop. Steve is really good people he is a blacksmith owns his own shop does alot of railings gates and such. his album was impressive, of course working as a blacksmith for the last 15 -20 years you tend to get really good at it. I don't remember who said but I read on here some where that more mase under the hammer the more the metal moves. Oh yes! it's night and day the difference. Needless to say the next project will be to make a base. Anyway Happy Forging, Chad Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
