Re: Lodge #8 of 10 1/4 Chicken Fryer

Lodge used that marking style ca. 1987-1993.

Re: Cleaning Up a Broken Edge

Seems like the factory grinding off of excess gate material would be tantamount to using a bench grinder. I assume the time needed to do what you want wouldn't cause an excessive amount of localized...

Re: Hello from Northern Virginia

Cast aluminum wasn't typically sold painted. Some cast iron pieces like waffle iron bases were lacquered with a process called japanning. Or it could be just a carbon build up from constant use. The...

Re: BSR Transition Period Piece?

My understanding of the timeline has always been that BSR started using the DISA automated molding machines, whose patterns had this style of markings, in 1966. Prior to that, other automated molding...

Re: Anyone Got Any Thoughts on This Unusual Lid?

Quite likely. The reason the handle looks more amateurish is that they apparently had to cut the handle area out of the lid they used to base their pattern on. Patterns with loop handles have to have...

Re: Any Thoughts on These Two Lodge Pieces with Labels?

I don't recall ever seeing a skillet with both SK and the shift ID blob.

Re: Chrome Large Block #7 with Du-chro Raised Letter Lid

I always thought DuChro was a marketing gimmick to make something special out of what they couldn't do, as in mirror polish the irregular surfaces. The top of the lid is apparently what you get when...

Re: Wagner Toy Chrome Plated Waffle Iron

I have the one with the 1892 patent date. Would still like to find the one marked "The Wagner" with the leveling pins and rimmed bailed base.

Re: Wagner Lid?

1268 would be the Wagner c/n for both a #8 DO and its lid. This lid was made by Wagner in the Ohio plant using a pattern they acquired from Griswold in the merger. It may have come in a Clean Easy...

Re: Help ID'ing #12 Spider Skillet and Bailed Griddle

The camp skillet is a Lodge. The griddle markings aren't familiar.

Re: Chrome Griswold

Never heard that one before. Re: cooking, if there's no loose plating on the cooking surfaces, it can be cleaned and seasoned like you would a bare iron pan. I'd skip seasoning the outside, and just...

Re: Chrome Griswold

716 is just the pattern number for #10 Griswold regular skillets.

Re: Griswold Diamond Logo?

Long griddles, round handle griddles, an egg poacher and some toy skillets in both iron and aluminum. There may be more, but that's all I see in a quick perusal of the BB.

Re: Best Way to Sell a Collection

Not a problem. I just kind of assumed his affiliation with one of the collector organizations would be the obvious channel for such an endeavor.

Re: Odd Lid

That would be my assumption as well. My 1940s Lodge chicken fryer top outer diameter is exactly 10-1/2".

Re: Any Thoughts on These Two Lodge Pieces with Labels?

That label says 1950s to me. I've seen a 4-notch #10 DO before.

Re: Strange Handled Erie Long Pan

It's doubtful this is a bail handle variant of a long pan. Bailed griddles typically had round bolt head attachments, plus bailed long pans aren't seen elsewhere. My guess is someone wanted a long...

Re: No 10 Indian

If you're ever in Hattiesburg, MS, there's a restaurant that has a full set hanging up. There are price tags on all of them (too high up to read), but I doubt if they're actually for sale. The owner...

Re: Rust!

There will be some variation in experience from pan-to-pan. I have an unmarked Griswold #3 with the three-hole handle that I stripped years ago with electrolysis and never got around to seasoning. It...
