Someone sold me today a junk anvil for $10 that weighs about 100 lbs,
and has a piece of top tool steel plate missing. The missing piece is,
I would estimate, about 2x3 inches and 1/2" thick.
I would like to have a go about fixing it. So, I came up with the
1) Preheat it to about 500 degrees F in a barbeque for an hour
2) Weld a few layers of 7018 to bring it to almost level
3) Weld a couple of layers of hard surfacing welding rod on top.
