Fisher anvil repair

Recommended Posts

I have an old 1900 Fisher anvil and the sides of the face are rounded. I would like to sharpen at least one side of it up. Is this recommended? Will I hurt the anvil? I would assume an angle grinder to this. Stupid question I know but I dont want to destroy my grandfathers anvil. Thanks in advance

if you have set your heart on a sq edge ,the easiest and less damaging is to tidiy up the hanging end at the tail .At horse shoing competitions we used all sorts of anvils some like paving stone edges ,but always found a spot we could draw a clip on ,it has to be a poor anvil without a edge on it some where. Good advise was to make up a block ,use a sawn drop as wide as your anvil weld a peg on it ,and if it bounces make a thick lead washer to put under it copper if you have it .
