D.C. Posted March 13, 2017 Share Posted March 13, 2017 Ok....so I know this is a very hot topic for many. I personally fall into the "anvils are a gift from God, don't defile them" camp. However...I would like to hear from anyone who has PERSONALLY been involved with or observed an anvil repaired PROPERLY with Robb Gunters method. My main questions are 1) Was the faceplate near the weld noticeably softer than the surrounding steel (logic says it has to be to some degree) 2) Does the Stoody rod blend with the rest of the face (unlike 7018 or other high nickel rods) 3) Were you satisfied with the results of the repair 4) (open to all opinions) When is this repair TRULY necessary. When does an anvil go from tool that should be utilised, to a collectors item the ought not be touched? Here's a pic of the anvil that's leading me down this road. An otherwise beautiful Mousehole missing a valuable chunk of real estate. FYI This is not my first anvil, this is not my only anvil...I technically do not need the hardy to be functional....but it pains me to see something not live up to its potential.
