Aren't anvils supposed to be cast, not forged? I'm no metallurgist, but an iron worker buddy of my dad's told me an anvil HAS to be cast, otherwise the work will weld to it while it's being forged on it. It was thirty years ago, so I may not remember exactly what he said as to why. All that welding seems like some serious overkill compared to just having a foundry cast one. Not that welding together a solid 100 lb chunk of scrap wouldn't be fun, but aren't the rods/wire WAY more expensive than a purchased cast anvil?
