I Forge Iron

buy or not ? anvil

Recommended Posts

It's unlikely that you will need to repair that crack, takes a heap of pounding on a 200 pound anvil to get something like that to cause trouble.

If it's made from wrought iron in the body oxy-acetylene welding may be a problem. If it's a cast steel anvil then with some preheat and slow cool there should be no problem.

I would preheat and arc weld it myself.

I would be happy to pay US$400 for that anvil. I don't know what the "going rate" is in Italy though; is Bruno around? (Italian smith on some of the boards)

Note for the less traveled: europe uses the comma where we would use the period
