   I'd total the EL's of the Anvil and the Hammer (PS: IIRC, the EL of 
an item can't be higher than 50%, round down, of the MEL of an item; to 
the hammer can't have more than EL7...but besides that...). In this 
case, a person using both items would get a +13 to his 
Armorer/Weaponsmith/Blacksmith EL. It wouldn't reduce the time to craft 
anything, nor would it create 'superior' equipment any more than the 
adjusted craftsman's EL skill would be able to do. In short, he'd be 
able to make better stuff based on the fact that his adjusted EL is 
higher when using these two items. Nothing more.
