Re: Hello from DC, and a Question

Not necessarily better, maybe slightly different depending on the weight/thickness of the casting. Both should be relatively light and have factory polish ground cooking surfaces. Either should be...

Re: Griswold and Wagner Toys

Doesn't seem like it. I think it's interesting they even made them with the transition logo, and nickel plated.

Re: Griswold and Wagner Toys

Wagner toy skillets aren't terribly hard to come by, but it's fun to try to find all the marking variations. That Erie tea kettle, on the other hand, is a great find.

Re: 24 Hour Electrolysis

I have a #10 Lodge that looked like that when I found it. Looked almost new after electro. A good lesson to never write off the ones that look like lost causes.

Re: Stumped, Inset No on Handle, Heatring, X on Bottom of Handle. That's It

This isn't the first time for this kind of behavior from you. Last time it was under four hours and you wanted a to delete a post because you didn't get an immediate response. It's not like you...

Re: Stumped, Inset No on Handle, Heatring, X on Bottom of Handle. That's It

Apparently, no one who has viewed the post in the last 24 hrs. has any ideas. I don't, and there's not really any point in a bunch of people chiming in to say they don't, either. The forum should not...

Re: Why Unmarked Cast Iron Pieces?

To be able to offer product at a lower price point to market channels like hardware stores, but without detracting from the value of their marked goods in the primary retail channels.

Re: Came Across One a Bit Different

As I noted above, the dimples are in the pattern, not added to the actual pan. Patterns, being aluminum, could be hammered to create the effect, or more likely an initial pattern, made of wood, could...

Re: Three Notch with No Markings

I don't think it would be a concern. The small pour spouts, handle style and distinct reinforced rim all say automated molding. Probably 1960s at the earliest.

Re: Identification Help: #3, Made in the USA, 6-1/9?

The screw was in the pattern. A quality control device used with automated molding lines.

Re: Identification Help: #3, Made in the USA, 6-1/9?

A (very) late unmarked Wagner. 6-1/2 inch, casting too grainy to clearly form the 2.

Re: Need Help Identifying a Piece

Unlike the other two, this one's marked version is inscribed "No 1102" and the same D is in the same spot, but is underlined (both unusual for Wagner c/ns and pattern letters).

Re: Need Help Identifying a Piece

Fully marked version is shown in the BB pg. 241 as the "Greaseless Frying Skillet", c/n 1102. But there are also two differently patterned "Fat Free Fryer" also c/n 1102.

Re: Three Notch with No Markings

Doesn't appear to be. Looks like electro has gotten the majority down to grey iron with some stubborn carbon left. If plated, the expectation would be the worn areas would be primarily the entire...

Re: Gate Mark and Italic Number Griddles

The 7 is a Lodge "old style" griddle, ca. mid-1950s. The other is an unknown, but mid-late 1800s.

Re: Three Notch with No Markings

Not Lodge. Their handle styles were all over the place, but that was never one of them. Likely an unknown US maker or import who copied the notches and whose country of origin was on the packaging or...

Re: Could Someone Help Date This #3 WagnerWare?

Stylized logo dates from ~ 1922. Catalog numbers on pieces date from ~ 1924, so between those years.

Re: Vintage Kettle

Design has similarities to old Lodge tea kettles (star, size number on lid and spout), but enough differences to make it probably not be. "T" on bottom seems a bit large and elaborate to be a...

Re: Griddle I.D.

That profile does seem a little bit different from either "old style" or "new style" handle griddles. The assumption would be the 413 is some kind of molder's mark for piecework pay, hastily stamped...

Re: Wagner Standard Kettle

Usually, pieces marked Sidney in block letters but not in the Sidney Hollow Ware block font (D is more square) are assumed to have been made by Wagner when they owned the Sidney plant. But usually...

Re: Wagner Standard Kettle

The link doesn't work. It's also to a private buy & sell group. If you have questions about CI identification, you need to just post them here.

Re: Cleaning 'galvanized' Iron ?

Tinning by hot dipping is also possible. Tin melts at a relatively low temp, so the process would not be very complicated, and would likely also leave artifacts like drips.

Re: Cleaning 'galvanized' Iron ?

As noted above, Griswold produced galvanized tea kettles. Also consider galvanized steel livestock troughs.

Re: Macdonald Number 9 Skillet

Not really seeing a concrete connection there. It says he designed and made cast iron library stack shelving, no mention of hollow ware. None of the pieces seen appear to have a place of manufacture...
