Had a great time too, didn't ya? Some observations: Your anvil has WAY too sharp of edges. That is going to mess up a lot of work. Don't neck down so far at the pivot. Taper from there out to the end of the rein. Knock off the corners in the grip area. Avoid the temptation to "clean them up" by grinding, learn to appreciate a properly forged finish.

thanks for the comments, the anvil is brand new, i plan to take down the edges a bit,but wanted to get a feel for it before i changed it, though that is on the list this week to do. i plan to chamfer the edges next week, i am trying to stay away from power tools till i learn the proper anvil work for sure, thanks agian
