English term or phrase: Anvil
Bonjour,

Suite à ma demande précédente portant sur le terme "striker", je ne suis pas sûr d'avoir trouvé le terme approprié pour "anvil" (Enclume? Plaque de choc?).

Voici l'extrait : "XXXX is a piercing tool designed for use in creating horizontal holes through the earth [...] The tools use pneumatic power to drive the striker inside the tool forward at a very high velocity. The striker then impacts the anvil at the front of the tool, driving the tool forward into the soil".

Merci d'avance de votre aide!
