Re: BSR #8 with Lid

I would have given twice that for the lid, maybe more. Great deal. Those darn lids are hard to find in my area.

Re: Large Kettle Clean Up

The wire wheel method is the best way to strip a large old kettle.Most are dimpled in the cooking area. The surface is lightly etched allowing the lard to coat the surface.

Re: Large Kettle Clean Up

Not 100% lime. That is a wash pot that had a build up of Borax or lime soap to clean clothing under a wood fire. I have cleaned several southern kettles that look like yours. Was the "crust"thicker...

Re: I Found This #7 Skillet at Goodwill

Nothing good in my area. Cast iron, jewelry, and sterling silver is "cherry picked" before placed out for sale. Rusty new Lodge pans and rusty corn stick pans. Both showing evidence of owner neglect.

Re: Anybody Seen One of These Before?

Stamped steel pan. Made in a press. Flea markets call them "cowboy fry pans"in an attempt to jack up the prices. Most used examples have a bad wobble.

Re: Help With Large Cast Iron Cauldron

Those with the outer lip/rim/edge are sometimes called syrup kettles. Rendering down maple syrup. I have no proof or documentation and yours may have never saw a drop of maple syrup.

Re: GRISWOLD #4 Skillets I've Found

Nice. Never seen the wood handle version. I let a few slide out in the early 1990's in a trade for some spider skillets. I had some with heat rings. :cry:
I have learned a lot.:shootself:

Re: Any Ideas?

Do you have the rimmed lid? The "D" shaped legs place this example in the older phase of gate marked spiders. 1880's to 1920's.

Re: Today's Goodwill Finds

Our local Goodwill stores cherry pick the cast iron donations. All we see is chinese cookie pans and chinese fajita pans from the Christmas gift stuff.

Re: DO ID

I wonder if they have records across the pond for early cast iron ware? Tax or export records.

Re: DO ID

They are called spider skillets in the southeast states. So many foundries made them there is no way to label who made what unless the lid is marked with a name of series of initials. This example is...

Re: Please Help Identify This Cast Iron Pot

If that is a matching set, I find it odd that the lid has the older style "meet in the middle" handle, but no gatemark.

Re: Camp Oven ID Help

Raised top and bottom with the "slim" lettering late 1950's into into early 1970's. Then block lettering on the top and a thinner lid design, without bottom marking. You have a smoother casting DO...

Re: Wagner Dutch Oven Question

Yep, it was worth three dollars.
I have another Bummer for you. Good luck finding a matching rimmed lid. In this case I would look for a lid that fit. Cast iron or glass, to use on a stove top.

Re: Guess I'm a Collector Now

It a handled dutch oven. Made to cook with coals under and on top. Anything a modern oven can do can be done with that. It has the older "D" shaped feet and what appears to be a casters mark on the...

Re: Guess I'm a Collector Now

Can you post a picture or the bottom of the spider skillet so I can see the feet. I have seen several "slip marks" on recast lid molds. Yours has a slip mark, but a small one compared to the examples...

Re: IRONSPOON Seasoning Method

Nothing beats lard. Fancy oils, synthetic compounds, compared to good ole animal fat.

Re: Cooking Fish in C.I. Leave a Fish Aftertaste?

Re: Rescue

What's up with the red color. Paint, flash rust, or extreme heat damage. The spider skillet is the best one in that pile.

Re: My First Hammered Piece

I have two hammered lids. Needing the pots. Also have the later version that are not hammered.
If I had to pick a single combo to use these would top the list.
