It's held up quite nicely, especially on the front half, where i faced it with spring steel. The mild steel portion has gotten a bit beaten up, but that was to be expected. The bigger problem has been the rebound, which has deteriorated somewhat. I suspect the anchoring legs have started to work themselves loose from the surrounding concrete. I've actually restored a nice old 120 pounder since then, that I now use as my main anvil. nowadays, I use the big one more as a swage block, or when I'm working with strikers.
Well, i know it seems like a good idea, but that "do as I say, not as I do" disclaimer near the beginning was partially because i did just that, and it broke. The spring steel arm snapped clean off; took some pretty beefy welding to stick it back together.For something that is going to take as intense a beating as a vice, chunky and ductile is the way to go.
