Old Phellodon tomentosus?

Noah’s measurements put it in the range of Phellodon.

I agree with Darv

Looks more like the brown-spored Sarcodon (brownish spines with white tips), but I have no idea about the species. Smell, taste, colours in the flesh and stem base?

It was small and tough

Cap was 46mm across, 5mm thick. Stipe 9mm at widest point tapering to 4mm, 33mm long.

Looks more like a Sarcodon than Phellodon. It seems too thick and too big. However the spines are whitish for being so old.
Did you get a spore print?
