Re: Electrolysis - Anode Bubbling?

Nothing seems amiss in the photos, as far as I can tell. There shouldn't be the fizzing halo of bubbles from the anode like that which emanates from the pan, although bubbles produced from the pan...

Re: Help Identify

Great find. A lot of people think they've found an honest to goodness Red Mountain when it's really an early automation piece with the RM style markings. This one's a genuine hand poured RM.

Re: Electrolysis - Anode Bubbling?

A photo of your setup may be more helpful before making several in-the-dark guesses.

Re: Next Step Advice Please

Another round (or two) of Easy Off on the inside would be advisable. Don't worry about rust, it's only flash rust from the bare iron now being exposed to air. The good thing about lye and oven spray...

Re: Griswold Rabbit Mold ID

Some of the salient characteristics of the genuine article may be slightly obscured by build-up, but you can compare to:

Re: Iron Mountain? Loth Lid?

Both appear to be rough copies made from an Iron Mountain chicken fryer. Not sure by whom, could be anyone with the resources and skill set. No pattern numbers (buttered over in this case) equals not...

Re: Error Wagner 10.5

Would not characterize it as an error, but rather as damage. Something else going on there that's likely unrelated to the original foundry. Markings are stamped into an aluminum pattern, so there is...

Re: Restored Griswold 151N Waffle Iron

Yes, the N signifies the revision to the coil handles that screw themselves on rather than via an eyebolt down the center.

I suppose $80 isn't really too bad these days, if no damage or defect,...

Re: Toy? Ash Tray

Toys were replicas of full size cookware. Advertising and cigarette rests confirm ashtray. Or backup spoon rest in a pinch.

Re: Help Identify

The dots would be in the pattern, not added during a molding run. The large pour spouts place this pan before BSR used automated molding. Being a #8, probably the most popular size, my guess would be...

Re: Sidney Rimmed Pot

Rimmed to set in a stove eye, footed because a round bottom doesn't sit flat. 1886-1897 are years of production given for SHWC. Probably later in that span given the marking style.

Re: Purchasing Online... Deciphering Photos

Given the time frame that particular pan was made and that the build up of crud would not likely be uneven and localized in that way, it is more likely to be pitted (99.999% likely, IMO).

Re: "Brilliant" Waffle Iron

I think we can safely say that whoever made the Brilliant iron in the first post also made the Belmont iron with the same pattern numbers. We can also see that Stover made a Belmont branded iron,...

Re: Fish Fryer or Double Gate Burner

Pans very much like this intended for cooking were termed either "long pans" or "fish fryers" interchangeably, and sometimes had a spout at one corner to facilitate draining cooking grease. But, no,...

Re: Grooved Handle but Not Griswold, Help Please

By all other accounts, an early automation period BSR. Interesting is that there are enameled pieces from Krane in St. Louis, MO that are just like this. Search Krane on the forum to find other times...

Re: "Brilliant" Waffle Iron

Raised pattern numbers would be atypical of Griswold, even on items sourced from them. The handle style and their attachment with rivets is similar to Favorite Piqua, but little else is. FPW was also...

Re: Fire Damage?

It kind of does, but not exactly. The reddish coloration of classic fire damage is usually more a rosy red, but lighting, camera flash can make it look different.

Re: Wagner Identification Help

Regardless of listings in the RB or BB, you'll only see Wagner #2 and #3 skillets with smooth bottoms and the stylized logo. Those with the size number only would be ca. 1922-1924, the first year...

Re: #14 Unmarked Bailed Griddle

The 6 o'clock orientation of the 14 and that diameter are consistent with BSR (Lodge are 14-3/8"). But catalog illustrations show the round knob type of attachment, which an actual photo confirms,...

Re: #14 Unmarked Bailed Griddle

Maybe Lodge. Bail attachments aren't right for BSR. What is outer diameter?

Re: Do Southern Mystery Skillets Ever Have Gate Marks?

The question is, however, did the original maker(s) use bottom gating (early on, one would have to assume), or are the bottom-gated examples copies/recasts?
