Anvil Resurface

Recommended Posts

I have two mouse hole anvils that need build of the striking surface. Circumstances have change for me and I've been out of touch for a while.  What is the current thinking on the preferred rod for this type of buildup repair. I'd really like a non-checking stress relief.


Several years ago I did a repair with DC hard facing rod using a rectified three phase welder. Now I'm stuck with single phase AC.  A quality machine but more of light repair and small assembly Hobart Welder.

I happen to love the mouse hole anvils.  I find their quieter sound and feel more than the cast steel anvils.  They also tend to have a broader face in proportion to the length. I got a deal on them because they were so beat up.
