Re: Holy Cow! Was Anyone at or Watching the Prices at the Ohio 'airworks' Auction To

Yeah, I saw some posts about it. I know that the hard-to-find pieces have been bringing good money lately, but that was crazy. I think I heard that a #13 lid brought $5000 ?

Big Pile with a Hammered Single-notch Lodge

I bought a nice pile of skillets yesterday. There are a few nice pieces in there, including my first hammered, single-notch Lodge. It's a chrome #5, with a few worn areas on the cooking surface. Also...

Re: WAPAK #12, (2) WAGNER #11s. Recent Finds

Doug, I felt it was a possibility when I was buying this skillet. Closer inspection, tilting at every possible angle, it still doesn't appear to be. Something looks a little different in that area,...

Re: WAPAK #12, (2) WAGNER #11s. Recent Finds

Thanks Ed. They all are in great shape and sit incredibly flat for pans of this size. I will be cleaning and re-seasoning them this spring or summer.

Re: How Many Rounds of Seasoning

You really only need 1 layer to provide protection from rusting. You will add seasoning with use. I do 2 or sometimes 3 layers to darken them a little more. that is strictly for cosmetics to resell.

Re: Ok, Not Cast Iron.. .but How About Some Bottom Gated Griswold Aluminum?

That's a very interesting piece of history. Thanks for sharing this information. I live right across the river from New Kensington and will have to research this a little further.

Re: Griswold Questions

First off, welcome to the site Stephen. In my opinion, Slant logo skillets without heat ring are MUCH harder to find that with heat ring. You hardly ever see any come up for sale compared to their...

Re: Wagner Hotel Waffle Iron, Griswold #11, Victor 723

MikeC, They were in the house of an old friend of a friend. I had a Griswold Hotel waffle iron at one time, but couldn't resist selling it, since I wasn't going to use it. I'll restore this one in...

Re: Electrolysis Tank - Newbie!

K_Leonard, check Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist. There are often old, manual chargers for sale on there for reasonable prices.

Re: Biggest Haul Yet - Lots of Work Ahead

Nice haul. Sometimes it happens that way. In the front stack of skillets, it looks like the 2nd and 3rd from the bottom might be fancy handled, bottom gate marked??

Re: Lye Bath

For several years, I used nothing but electrolysis, since it cleans everything. The past 2 years I've started to use a lye tank first. It allows me to stack multiple pieces in the lye tank for...

Re: Unusual Cast Iron Frog

It's a boot jack. Anchored to the floor and you hook the heel of your boot in the antenna and pull your boot off. I've had several of these. Use one now as a door stop in my shed, lol.

Re: Some Pics from the Dinkys Auction This Weekend

That 3 lip #9 is amazing. Has to be one of the rarest pieces out there. Although I'm not a big fan of chrome or nickel plated pieces, that #2 is stunning. I see posts about this auction house all the...

Re: Bride's Choice....

I suspect that there was a bottom gatemark that has been eroded away by the sulfur pitting. I see these referred to as "initial" skillets. Unknown maker, if I'm remembering correctly. Nice, old...

Re: I'll Be Dog-Gone "Home"

Nice find. I have pretty much stopped even checking at my local Goodwill store. Never any cast iron. I think they put it all on their eBay store.

Re: Recent Restorations

Very nice. Do you clean them with an electrolysis tank?
