You don't scour the pan at all after the lye/e-tank does its work?

Just a mild scrub with Scothbrite. No real elbow grease to speak of. I have had to take a metal pick to get stubborn crap out of lettering.

Did you see my post about the Puritan I found where somebody did that? Of course, they did other more serious damage as well, but it was clear that somebody scratched the lettering with a sharp object.

I just use a pick to gently remove seasoning/crud from the inside on the lettering. I'm real careful to not scratch anything.

That is what the SOS and Bar Keeper's Friend does for me. The finer particles of abrasive in the BKF and the thin fibers of the SOS pad are able to get down into those grooves.

But that's what works for me... if your method works for you, more power to you! Glad you're being careful.

Did you see the pictures of the Wagner I scored today? http://www.castironcollector.com/for...19&postcount=2

I may have paid a bit too much for it, but it is in excellent condition.

That is good to know! It really is difficult to know what we should pay for this stuff, because the prices range so widely! That is why I started a thread on pricing, but that thread doesn't seem to be taking off, for some reason. The price differences I see between garage sales, flea markets, antique malls, and eBay can be astounding. Just eBay alone can be astounding in that regard.
