    I am a novice, but I have read reviews about these power fist anvils. The consensus seemed to be that to bring your ball bearing into the store. , and test each anvil individually. It seemed some are good, and some are bad. Good luck sir.

    I made a post anvil for cheap. Works for most everything I do.

    Train track. Works pretty good for a beginner like myself I scored the biggest and heaviest size they have and wrapped it in chain to add a bit more weight and dampens the noise.

    I've heard some good things about those cast steel anvils from Princess Auto. I've been thinking about getting one myself as they are a nice size for a small knifemaking shop. They also carry cast iron ones. I have one of those for peening pins and such, but you wouldn't want to use it for forging. A post anvil, as Dan mentioned, is another good option for most of us.
