Shotpeening an Anvil?

Recommended Posts

The guy I dealt with at Vaughns thought that my anvil had been 'doing the rounds' on ebay, as he had been contacted by several previous owners. He was suspicious that it was a scrap casting, so he insisted on my taking it to their works for him to check over before he would commit to heat treating it. Apparently none of the previous ownwers could be bothered and had put it back up for sale! Maybe the calls were fron five disappointed owners of the other castings? I bought mine from a steel stockholder near Devises.

They did charge me to heat treat it, but a very fair price. No photos of the process I'm afraid.

Looks like he's still selling them from that batch.
