I have an home made anvil made from a short (18") peice of rail road rail. Dad's had it for years, he made it, and it works well for what it is. Well, now it's mine, and not being able to leave well enough alone, I want to modify it by welding a 4"w x 6"l x 1.25" thick peice of steel on top for a larger striking surface.
Question: What rod would be best for this process? Is something special needed to weld railroad rail? Preheat?
I figure I'll need to stick weld it as my mig is only a 175.
Any info would be appreciated. Obviously I want this thing to be tough enough to beat on.
