Jeffrey, I have a very similar waffle iron. I am wondering how you identified the maker?

Picked up some paddles at the thrift store a couple weeks ago. $7 Looked all over for the base, no dice. Just got them out of the lye and cleaned up. Annnnd not specializing in waffle irons I have questions for you waffleheads.

When someone purchased a waffle iron way back when. Were they sold with "optional" tall or short bases, or if you bought one you picked the model with the base you needed? BB page 90 shows it with a low base with a bail and no side handle. Anyone know the part number for this base?

Griswold American No.8 with 314B / 315A paddles.


This is only my second WI restore, and I'm kinda liking the challenge. Oh and.... You guys are doing great restoring yours, they look great!

Nice!!!!! Like I said, I'm not really into waffle irons. (because I never usually find them in the wild) Should have known that DougD had already hooked us up with the info. Duh!

Rick, FYI

I think the 314 and 315 came with resting pins at 4 o'clock. It appears on yours they have been ground off to fit another base so it would not be a match with the mentioned bases that have the pin indentations to hold it level. Not good if the pins were ground off as then there is no matching base. Check eBay.

Hilditch

I just saw the pin. Please ignore this post!

Doug explains the differences between high and low bases in this tread:

Cleared it up for me and makes perfect sense.

The whole edge of the paddles dipping below the hole in the top of a wood burning stove makes perfect sense. Thanks for the link.

Sorry Jeffrey R. for partially hijacking your thread.

Everyone, please post more awesome waffle iron photos !!!

Has taken me most of the morning to figure out some of the in's & out's of IMGUR and with any luck my photos will visible from the below link. Note the lifting handle on the G.F. Filley. The metal seems to have been made of a different type (Malleable Iron) in order to insert the wood handle portion. There are no pins that would normally appear on wood handles of this sort thus the wood had to be inserted while the metal was hot enough to bend without breaking. I've cooked at least one batch in each of them but not enough to keep them from sticking plus it isn't easy to do on a glass top electric burner.
