Anvils-4 Grinding corners

ANVIL CORNERS: When I talk about grinding and resurfacing an anvil with angle grinder and belt sander I am talking about 1/64 to 1/32 inch MAX! Badly chipped corners can be either radiused or chamfered. It is common to see anvils with a heavy (3/8") 45 degree chamfer along the edges from the table to the back side of the body. The rest should have a minimum of a 1/8" radius on the corners extending around the heel. The corners of the chamfer should also be slightly radiused. All these surfaces should be finely finished after grinding.
