Then run in and grab it by the horn and smash it into a pool of water?

I haven't checked back on this thread till now. Were you asking me Thomas?

I'd quench it using the 2" trash pump for a sluice method I described above.

Hi everyone.  I just joined, this is my first post here.  I know jack about jack but I have been around for a little while in various industries.  I program industrial robots these days, btw.  About re-hardening the anvil face, I am not going to say this would be easy, but perhaps more practical.  But if you could get your hands on a sizable enough induction heater you could heat just the work face without heating up the entire thing such that handling it safely is another issue in itself.  Induction heat the face to the right depth, then quench.  Just putting in my two cents, now i am cents less.  Any of you fine folks ever messed with induction heating or I committing blasphemy right now and about to be banned forever?
