Help! Anvil Refacing costs, if possible?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have the use of an anvil( my dad's) and the face is practically nonexistent. It seems to have been ripped off or never even put on. Can I hire someone to weld a steel plate on? Is that a good idea? Any ideas about the manufacturer?

I plan to use it for weekend use as often as possible, I'm still a newbie, and I'm guessing it weighs 70# or so. Ask for more details and I'll add them.

All replies will be greatly appreciated. Great thanks, H.

Southern Crescent: body is cast iron, steel face. Yes you can hire someone to reface that anvil. Commercially it will probably only cost several times the cost of buying a decent new anvil.  If money is a concern may I commend to your attention:

And note you can still use that anvil for it's hardy hole and horn!
