    Hi Mark,
    It's not Dsel but Grahame. Maybe use bisalloy 80 if you can access some offcut at scrap value.

    They don't sell it in anvil sized pieces, rather big sheets.

    In that case it would be far cheaper to just buy your anvil.

    I was fortunate in that I had access to a scrappy who was buying scrap from some of the Mackay based Dragline bucket repair shops.

    It was as a strip of 450mm long x 70mm x 75mm. Also, I was fortunate at the time to have access to oxy cutting and heavy welding eqpt. I made the base of 20mm structural plate under a 150 ton brake press.

    You need to evaluate what types of steel your scrappy can access.

    cheers

    Grahame
