Got mine finished up tonight. I am very happy with it except for the handles... any way to remove them to clean up the interior rod? I also was hoping the wire of the handles would be brighter. Still, not unhappy!

The handles were never chromed or nickel plated so don't try to make them silver shiny. My best looking spring handles are shiny black with some wear. Season them with lard and if you use them enough, which you won't, when the seasoning wears off the handles the steel will shine up from wear. A little extra seasoning on the inside of the irons won't hurt either. The seasoning also keeps the rust at bay as they are hard to towel dry.

Is that right!? I assumed chrome or nickle plated. OK, will do.

My guess is that the wooden handle waffle irons were produced first.

It appears that the wooden handle waffle irons do not have Fanner or Cleveland on it. I have one with coiled handles and love it. I am from Cleveland so I'm a little bias lol.

Any information on this iron is appreciated as in manufacturing dates and such.

I think the style of hinge would be the most likely part to place this in a time period... definitely after 1900...
