Re: Curiosity Question..( WAPAK )

While selling or giving the competition patterns are both extremely unlikely, making pans from stolen patterns would be unfathomably foolish, especially if you put your name on them.

Re: Curiosity Question..( WAPAK )

Pattern creation involved the carving of a pan first in wood (and sometimes other materials), then from it creating a master in brass to which runners and gates were added to create the aluminum...

Re: Curiosity Question..( WAPAK )

Wapak, being notorious for "borrowing" other makers' pans for its patterns, was probably content with the Wagner #3s made just down the road that they used to make theirs. And, since Wagner only made...

Re: Oneta with Backwards 'N'? (#9)

As common as every skillet cast using that error-containing pattern. Likely, as with many Wapak pans, that this one used an early Victor (by Griswold) as the basis for a pattern. It appears that...

Re: Staining?

Steel wool and straight vinegar might be more effective. Just don't leave it sitting with the vinegar on it. Evapo-Rust is also effective on stains where rust was once active.

Re: Lye Strength of Solution Question

To be clear, if what he gives you is a 10:1 solution, it's 4 times the strength used for CI cleaning, and needs to be handled with eye and skin protection.

Re: Lye Strength of Solution Question

My high school chemistry skills are pretty rusty (since I only took physics), but the recommended solution of 1 lb. to five gallons of water is roughly a 2.5% solution whereas yours is either 9 or...

Re: Wagner Skillet Assistance

The stylized logo (with Sidney -O-) was in use (on pans) ~ 1922-1959, but pieces with it but no catalog number fall in a far shorter time frame. This pan would be more like 1922-1924.

Re: Bsr (7) 8-B Chicken Fryer

IIRC, something about them altering sizes slightly so that patterns would fit "two up" on a single match plate for automated molding. Doubled production output with no extra molding cost.

Re: Griswold Camp Oven Question

They appear to be the same in both books. One even has the listings twice for some unknown reason. If only purchasing one book at a time, the BB is recommended to get first.

Re: Griswold Camp Oven Question

If the books show a photo of a piece, the caption will include its p/n. If additional sizes are listed in the caption, values are given, but not p/ns. Both books have appendices of pattern numbers...

Re: Griswold Camp Oven Question

It appears that 8-11 were offered in the early 1910s both with and without a bail handle. Later, in the 1920s, the non-bail handled option was dropped, and the range expanded to 8-13, cover optional....

Re: Anyway to Identify or Age This Pot?

The lid is BSR, mid-1960s or after. The footed kettle is unknown and judging by the bottom gate perhaps up to 100 years older.

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

The arc Wagner without the Sidney -O-. Might be an Erie ghost above the Wagner if closely inspected.

Re: Help Identifying Wagner Ware Sydney -0- W/Heat Ring Set

Collectors sometimes refer to acquiring a "full set" of a maker's skillets, as in sizes 2-14. But they don't appear to have ever been sold that way. Sometimes a limited grouping of the most popular...

Re: Griswold Questions

Ran across one in central IL about 6 or 7 yrs ago. Was a spinner so I left it behind. Probably shouldn't have; haven't seen one since.

It will be apparent after it comes out of the lye bath. They were offered nickel plated, though.

Re: Help Identifying This #9

Because they are typically seen well made and don't appear to be copies, these are normally IDed as early unmarked Wagner.
