Ok, not sure if this fits better here or in the workshop forum but...
I'm looking at buying an anvil (used) and doing a little blacksmithing work as another hobby. I expected these htings to be pricey and they are but... the price drops quite a bit with anvils that have gotten beat up. You pay out the whazzoo for a nice clean/crisp edge. But I've run across a couple that are dinged up and could save quite a bit by buying one of these.
The question is, if I did, could I take that anvil to a machine shop and have it re-faced to clean it up? Is there anything "special" about anvils (we're talking older anvils in the 150-200lbs range here) that would prevent it from being re-faced? Could something like this be refaced?
Edumacate me please!
