Default 4's Galore

I was out today picking up stocking stuffers for my wife and decided to hit the usual spots looking for some new CI. I was hoping to see a #4 or #9 to pick up. It was a sweet day for 4's. I saw a Wapak Indian which I was initially very excited about but upon closure inspection I believe it was a fake. I saw 5 4's total, and I ended up buying a cruddy Volrath which is also pictured. In the lye bath currently.

Other possibly notable piece I saw was a Griswold waffle iron with a very long handle. I'm not into waffle irons but it seemed unique. They wanted $395 for it...

Your Volrath should clean up and make a nice uses from what I can tell. The Wapak is a fake. Handle is wrong and it's a bad casting also. See page 299 of the BB. What you're calling a waffle iron is actually a wafer iron by Griswold. See page 101 of the BB. Value in the BB shows $300-$400 and that is based on excellent condition. Depending on what shape it's in the price could be o.k. but I think it's high myself.

The Wapak is a fake, the handle being the first clue. The marked Vollrath is a good find.

That waffle iron and base look very, very strange.

The handle attachment on the wafer iron is not the same as the one shown in the BB, but is very commonly seen, so is not a repair.

Sorry guys, i don't mean to hijack this thread but what does BB mean/stand for? I see it often on this site.

Thanks for the help

BB stands for "Blue Book". The book's title is, "Book of Griswold and Wagner: Favorite Wapak Sidney Hollow Ware: Revised & Expanded 5th Edition". It is called the Blue Book because the cover is Blue.

RB stands for "Red Book". That book's title is, "Book of Wagner and Griswold: Martin, Lodge, Vollrath, Excelsior". The cover is red.
