    Default Heads up for Anvil Seekers in Australia

    I've been chasing up an anvil and finally got an answer from a guy in the ACT, "Valley Forge " the advertise a couple anvils 100kg and 200kg, just to let anyone know if they are chasing them up that they are no longer available from them as from now and into the foreseeable future, the email says he will alter the web site to now reflect these changes.

    See above SA anvil manufacturer, has 75, 100 and 150 k new anvils made in Australia. THe price is very reasonable considering some poor sod just paid 1200 on ebay for an old beaten up BK sydney 160 lb anvil. That is 70 k, barely adequate for general blacksmithing.

    At this point it seems that it is either this guy in SA, that is advertising on Gumtree, or http://watersidemetalart.org/
    or http://www.ernst-refflinghaus.de/amboss.html
    I have fancied a refflinghaus for a while now. Really want a southern german pattern with the side shelf and the smooth transition from square to round.
    The prices directly from the manufacturer are much better than the US rep, and the shipping fees are very low too. I am working on lowering the fees at our end that as usual are a bit of a rip off, and I may have a deal for a number 58/ 100 kg.

    I'll let you know how I go.

    I bought his hammers (2), punches (3) and a range of tongs a couple of years back. Great service and very nice tools.

    I'd be interested to see the final costs, what are the ones like on the Mont de Lancy site, ? http://www.blacksmithing.com.au/forsale.html

    So far Mr Refflinhaus has quoted me 1200 euros in Sydney CFI. I have yet to figure out what his agent will charge for release in sydney port. I have my own fright forwarder so may be able to strike a deal. Will let you know but likely some $200 on top.

    I've heard 3rd hand Oscars @ Mont de Lancey are a bit soft.

    I spoke to the manufacturer that advertises on Gumtree, and he said his are 51hrc, manufactured in Victoria and hardened in SA.
    Made of 4140 steel.
    He can cast in 5160 and can do up to 61 hrc but did not give the additional cost.

    i am not experienced enough in metallurgy to direct an anvil manufacturer to change his steel to suit extra hardness.
    I rather go for a brand that was tested by time.

    Refflinghaus does them up to 59 and one inch deep penetration.

    Then there is Kohlswa of course, their prices are even higher than Refflinhaus. They do however have a very large selection of shapes

    Prices:

    I like their C51 shape and it seems to be better priced, slightly.
