I recently picked up a 185lb mousehole for 1.75/pound in pretty decent condition. My question is, I notice there is a very distinct arch on the bottom of the foot that seems quite intentional. The arch means that only the corners touch a flat surface. My instinct is to try and "fill" this arch in with something (lead, silicon...) to both deaden the ring and allow for a more solid contact point between the anvil and stand. Does anyone know the purpose of this arch? Do all Mousehole anvils have this? My other anvil is an "American" and has a flat bottom and do most other anvils I have seen. I will post a picture when I get a chance. Thanks in advance, Eric
