That’s awesome. Did I miss the cost in a previous post? Ductile iron correct?

Yes, they are 65-45-12 ductile iron. They ask me not to discus pricing on this forum site. Shoot me a private message. 


JLP, I need to check with my son on that. I will get you on Monday. As always, thank you for your support!

I always thought that cones could be made as a byproduct of casting the anvil. Pour the anvil and the sprue is in the shape of the mandrel. Cut the sprue off and you have a cone to go with the anvil.

Someone probably did that back in the day. Our down sprues are straight, not tapered, probably useful to someone for something but nothing that I would wish to sell with my name attached to it. We are a production shop focused on quality product for our customers, including the blacksmith tools.

JHCC and JPL, thanks 

Mike, the material is quite but simple to polish, cut, machine, drill and tap. We debated on what to put on the bottom as a mount but a 1 inch without draft seemed to be the way to go. We have seen a few people hold them in a vice for their needs as well.

What's the slot for?

It's often called a "tong" slot but was more likely for the connecting link when truing up a ring on a chain.

Of course that's just my opinion I could be wrong.
