Default Rescue

Sometimes you want and sometimes you just want to rescue. The small oval fryer appears to be a gate marked piece. The new dutch oven is a Harbour Freight piece and came with the deal. It sells for over half of what I paid for the lot.

What's up with the red color. Paint, flash rust, or extreme heat damage. The spider skillet is the best one in that pile.

The red is a light coating of spray paint. The fellow I got it from said he guessed someone tried to prevent rusting. This will be my first foray into paint removal. I have been reading about stripping on some places. I was wondering about residue left behind or putting in my lye bath and not knowing if it were lead based. Everything I read indicated any residual left in the etank or lye bath would not be a problem for pieces behind it. Maybe others with knowledge might shed some light on the subject.
