D-Mo I have done a lot of anvil research over the years and I currently advise people to buy a new anvil because of the outrageous prices of old anvils. When I first started, I paid $300 for my 140 pound Peter Wright. We bought used anvils because you could get them for a good price, now there is no way. Now the same anvil goes for $650+. The problem is if you go home and hit that anvil once and it breaks in half you are out $600. At least for $700 you could have a new anvil with a warranty. Check out Kanca anvils, closest thing to a Rigid around at a decent price.
