Re: Crisco vs Flax seed oil?

I have about 4 qt. containers in the freezer that hold rendered out beef tallow. Find all sorts of use for it, from time to time. Get fat free from local supermarket and then render it out a big...

Re: Can't find washing soda.

I find it in a local Kroger store on the laundry aisle, down by the washer additives, like Borax and softeners. I don't know what stores are in your area or how far you have to go if you live in a...

Re: Just 2 Kettles

I go around to estate sales looking for various things. Besides CI, one of which is an amount of "clothesline" wire. Around my parts, in the 40s/50s, before the advent of clothes dryers, it was all...

Re: Hello From Doug (Not *that* Doug)

Welcome to the madness! If you love it, you can't leave it alone. I'm more of a user than a collector, but let me see one at a good price at an estate sale/yard/garage sale--I'll get it, whether...

Re: Hi from northern, northern, northern WI

yeah, you get the CI fever, you get excited. Not a lot of people do, but for us that love/use it, it can get bad. Like some of my other hobbies--people look at you a little strange when you mention...

Re: Graphite as Sacrificial Anode

How did the graphite react as a sacrificial anode? Was there the usual crud as built up on the steel/iron anodes? Does it appear it might be more durable than the steel?

Re: Question: Setting Up Electrolysis Tank

I got a 20 gallon Rubbermaid Roughneck for mine and while in the hardware store got 1 foot of 5 gauge ground wire for 99 cents. They also had a manual charger for 39.95. I filled the can up near...

Re: Just 2 Kettles

Those are 2 beautiful kettles. Good hunting! I can't help you in identifying them, but I think the key is in the shape of the bail holder loop on each side. I've seen that style loop on a lid. ...

Re: Hello from Kathleen in Pa

Welcome. I'm not a true collector, but an avid user of CI. I've bought a lot of CI over the years and use it. I've sold a couple of pieces that were too big or someone just could not live without....

Re: Hello Everyone

Welcome to the site! Great place for knowledge/learning of CI. I stumbled on it trying to find out more about the things I use. Very interesting info here for me. Something new and odd always...

Nice Lodge pot

If my memory serves me correctly--don't bet on it--I got this at the same time I got the one I put on that turned out to be 2/3s of a set--the double pan. Sitting back in my storage unit until I...

Re: Hammered lid DO

I know people who cast lead bullets, and all their CI comes from Harbor Freight. Usually, people who cast also appreciate CI and would never think of using a good piece for that purpose. Seems to...

Re: Bee's wax

I tried this on 2 pieces and it appeared to work really well. Haven't used them to cook with, yet. The amount of beeswax still left in the pan after wiping cannot amount to much. I googled up...

Re: Thinning the herd

I suppose it all boils down to where you are with Cast Iron. Some are hard core collectors who love looking at and showing off their CI. Some are just in love with cooking with some pieces. I'm...

Re: Interesting marking

Yes, I looked at it and studied it and thought, "That couldn't just be an accident." It is so perfectly placed. Your explanation makes perfect sense, though. Management would know exact date and...

Re: Bee's wax

That's interesting, as I think beeswax and honey are God's miracles for us. Beeswax can be used in so many ways, and honey is surely the elixir of the gods. I buy raw honey in 4# gallon jugs a...

Interesting marking

This is an unmarked Wagner #6 I picked up at a local flea market type mall. Pretty cruddy and hoped for a strike. Cleaned up well, but found some pitting both inside and outside. For $5.00, not a...

Re: Vintage Wagner Ware Small Cast Iron Skillet 1050E

Go to the "public" page of the Cast Iron Collector--most info on age, marks, etc. can be found there. In the 1960s most manufacturers started putting "Made in the USA" on their cast iron. If it...

Re: Lodge lid

Thanks for the response. In my storage area I have cast iron which I have moved around in the past years. I have a Lodge bailed pot and I had several lids that probably have been mixed around. I...

Lodge lid

Okay, from reading about unmarked cast iron in the reference section, this is a Lodge. With the raised "8" numeral, is it pre 1930s or is it from the 30s? The only reference to raised number is on...
