Re: $5 FB Marketplace Find Has Me Stumped (pics!)

There are diameters of Wagner skillets from a catalog on a page here (http://www.castironcollector.com/numbers.php), but only to illustrate how size numbers have nothing to do with actual dimensions,...

Re: 5 QT Dutch Oven Lid

The CF is Lodge ca. early 1960s. The lid is not; I would concur Asian.

Re: $5 FB Marketplace Find Has Me Stumped (pics!)

Pretty much all the hallmarks of pre-automationn BSR, the disconnect being the number on the top of the handle. BSR also not known to use shift identifiers.

Re: Heart Star W.I. Question

The book is merely pointing out that the irons pictured happen have the large or the small star. No. 18 919/920 paddles are seen with both large and small center stars, as are No. 19 932/933 paddles....

Re: ID Help for Family Pass Downs

They actually look like Asian imports, probably 1960s-ish. It wasn't required that imports be physically inscribed with country of origin as long as packaging or labeling disclosed that info.

Re: General Question: What Makes New Cast Iron Black?

I can't imagine their process is as intensive as what hobbyists do to artificially achieve black color, e.g. 500įF temps and multiple coats. My guess is that it's a one-pass spray and bake process.

Re: General Question: What Makes New Cast Iron Black?

Bare cast iron is gray. Manual seasoning is often bronze colored because, even though the oil is polymerized, there is not enough carbonization of either the oil itself or of substances contained in...

Re: Need Help with Identification.

Thought the same about the top of the lid, but never seen that basting element design before, either.

Re: Wagner "Senior" Corn Stick Pan

Speaking of Krusty Korn Kobs, I found this classified ad from 1919.

Odd, considering Wagner sold the SHW foundry back to its original owner in 1903. It would...

Re: ID Help Cauldron

Older, unmarked, bottom-gated pieces are virtually impossible to ID as to maker. A time frame of production can be estimated from characteristics like the shapes of handles, legs or bail attachments,...

Re: Griswold Cornstick 283/931

No brainer. It's worth way more than that. I gave $40 for one over a decade ago, and also have one in DuChro finish I got for $16 :o plus shipping. The smaller 273/930 is far more common.

Re: Wagner "Senior" Corn Stick Pan

It would appear the senior size was the only one to have tab handles or the plain Ks marking.

Re: Griswold #7 Slant Logo

A #8 in this "Slant EPU" logo was one of the first half dozen truly collectible pans I ever bought. A few pans later was one that was described as being "rare" that really wasn't, and at the time I...

Re: Electrolysis Anode Cruds Up Fast

An anode with larger surface area will help. Even multiple pieces wired together (think more blades). Stainless steel does not seem to crud up nearly as much, but it will eventually rot like any...

Re: Martin Stove #10 Skillet

If actually the head of a screw, there would be few reasons for it. In the (much later) era of automated mold-making, a pattern suspected of producing defects would have a screw driven into it to...

Re: Itís Been a Long Time - 66 Days

Would have had to have been made using a removable "core" that apparently wasn't applied properly.

Re: What is This Gigantic Thing?

It's called a ham boiler. A popular enough implement that toy versions were made.

Re: Help With Identification Of Unmarked

Looks like what many want to call Blacklock, the predecessor to Lodge. But since no marked Blacklock versions exist to prove the theory, it's only conjecture.

Re: Griswold #6....good Deal?

I'd have to think twice if I really wanted it at that price. Any wiggle room on that one?
