Lets try this again fellas. Much thanks to cutter for helping me resize the pics.
So,
Whatcha think fellas? Should I leave this one alone or try to "clean" it up a bit?
I wish the edges were sharp all the way around, but I'm not sure what a resurface job would do to it?
I want to keep the original look. Is there a way of "adding" some to it, to sort of "build it up", and then reshape it and have sharp corners again???

Paul, if you look close at pic#1, you can see where the cap piece is attached to the base of the anvil. Tha cap is what is chipped, because it is hard.
For years now a lot of smiths have been trying different processes to repair or replace caps, including milling them off and replacing with T1 plate for a striking cap.
The problem is the whole anvil has to be red hot as well as the cap, and then, the 2 must be joined to do the job properly.
Another method that has been done with some success is to MIG replace the missing cap metal and then grind or mill to shape. MIG also requires a lot of preheat and postcool, and occasionally results in a broken anvil.
My personal thinking is an anvil can be capped by using T1 plate and brass to bond the cap plate to the base, although I've never tried it.

Thanks ShadeTREE! It feels good to have earned my first "YOU SUCK" on ShopTalk!!
I hope there are many more to come!!

I must say that cutters vise, anvil, Delta Bandsaw, and Clausing drill press have all inspired me greatly to begin a search for old tools that can be brought back to life again!
There is no better feeling in the world than bringing these old quality tools back to life!
It hurts me to see the abuse some people have given them, but I guess that's part of it.
Thanks fellas!
