This anvil weigh allmost 10Kg, and it tok about 15 minutes to forge, and about 20 minutes to machine and grind.

I use SS-2541 in this anvil and allmost in all my tools in the forge, exept in the hammer dies, but allmost eweryting else to use with the airhammer.

Hello Kalsme'n-- You may have been inspired by Mr. Postman, but you will inspire many -right here. Thanks for showing us a little of what you and shop can do. You must have a very good(fine touch) feel for your work. It really impresses me.

Our 4340 is cheaper here also. We use it every chance that we can.

Thanks for joining us.
