Re: Toy? Sample? Manufacturer of Pan And Skillet?

Re: Cleaning 'galvanized' Iron ?

my understanding of the term 'galvanized' is that it is always a 'zinc' coating... there are different methods of doing it, but it seems to always involve zinc.

I have run into a couple of different pieces and 'galvanized' iron doesn't seem to be a topic covered on this site. I have a couple of Griswold meat grinders that appear to be galvanized with a dull...

Re: Came Across One a Bit Different

I wouldn't call that #7 a SMS... it has none of the characteristics of the usual SMS. looks like an early lodge to me with the raised size on the handle and raised molder's mark on the bottom.

Foster from Ironton, Oh.

Re: Cleaning/seasoning These Waffle Iron Paddles

not bad. I couldn't just twist them by hand. I started them moving by putting a nail set against the end of the spring and hit it a few times... after about a quarter turn of doing that to slowly...

Re: "Brilliant" Waffle Iron

the base more closely resembles the ones by Fanner... like the ones where they modifed the handle to have 'letters' in the open space.

Re: Erie 2nd Series #9 Star Makers Mark Restoration

from looking at the before pics of the #9 I wouldn't have thought that that line that runs downward from the R in Erie would have been visible after clean up... it must be deeper than it looks. ...

Re: Erie 2nd Series #9 Star Makers Mark Restoration

If you're going to complain about it you need to at least provide some 'before' pics so we can properly empathize.

Re: Erie 2nd Series #9 Star Makers Mark Restoration

that's a beauty that has made it 130 some odd years with no real damage... do no harm... collectors would pay 200+ for a pan in that condition, with the nice markings and pattern maker's mark.
