    I hope to find lye. Never looked for it before. the person yesterday said that I should be able to find it.

    NaOH and KOH are used in drg production, so I may have a hard time finding it. Not sure.

    I did a search online, and it seems some products are available. Red Devil used to be a brand, but was pulled from the market.

    I've just used heavy duty Easy-Off oven cleaner in the past, as it is lye. That works when I've bought 6 - 8 pieces at a time.

    Came home with somewhat over 200 pieces yesterday. Buying cans of Easy-Off ain't gonna cut it. icon_biggrin.gif

    You should have seen the look on my wife's face last night. I'll post pictures ... of the cast iron, not my wife's expression.

    Made an eggless quiche on Sunday. Got up, made it and was icon_question.gif that it didn't quite fill the 9-inch pie crust, like it usually does. It's usually quite full. icon_question.gif

    Threw it in the oven for 45 minutes. Not set up. icon_question.gif

    Let it go a little longer. Still runny. icon_question.gif

    Checked the recipe. icon_redface.gif

    It was o.k., actually. Am having the leftovers diced up in a scrambled egg.

    Found solid lye (NaOH) with the drain cleaners at my local hardware store.

    200 Pieces, I can just imagine your wife's reaction - specially since you'll need to clean them icon_eek.gif

    Thanks. But, not even close. icon_biggrin.gif

    Someone very prominent in the Wagner & Griswold Society is very close to here in Clinton, MA. I read that he has thousands of pieces.

    Something to aim for. If I could avoid my wife having me committted, that is.

    Just the thought of lifting, and carrying and loading and unloading 200 pieces.... Yikes!

    And, Paul, what are you going to do when your wife says - Let's move into a condo.... ???

    Good morning all; it's a cool, rainy day here in the Blue Mts, trying to think of something warm and comforting for breakfast that might be a little differant. Hmmmm; maybe some sourdough pancakes?

    I might gift or sell some of the non-collectible pieces after I sort, strip, and re-season it. My two brothers-in-law are active with the Boy Scouts, and they might always want more cookware for camping.

    Wild night nere in MA. Haven't had tornadoes like yesterday since 1953. I was in the kitchen dipping peanut butter balls in chocolate making buckeyes. The TV was on, and the emergency warning system came on. Just the weekly test, for sure.

    Nope. The real thing.

    I was wearing gym shorts and flip-flops. I was concerned enough that I put on jeans, socks and sneakers and made sure I knew where the cats were to get them in carriers and into the corner of the basement if we had to.

    My wife and I carried flashlights with us last night in case the power went out.

    Here's our local newspaper, the Worcester Telegram-Gazette.

    Thanks. It ended up just being severe thunderstorms by us. We are a little north of the super-cell, as The Weather Channel called it, that had the tornadoes.

    There was a north super-cell, too, that was headed to our town, Marlborough.

    Learned something new ...

    A meterologist said that the cooler air coming off the ocean will weaken the storms as they head east. Still will have thunderstorms, but the risk of a tornado is somewhat diminished as the storms eads towards the coast.

    Here's the collection I bought.

    I need to run to Home Depot and buy a couple more metal storage shelves.

    The 200-plus pieces.



    The Dutch ovens.



    Assorted kitchenware: colonial breakfast skillets, square skillets, a small single egg skillet, ashtrays, aebleskiver pan, plett pan, round grill/griddle pans, two-buerner griddles, meat/food grinders, and so on.



    The skillets. Lots of skillets. Griswold, early Wagner, at least one Wapak, at least one Favotite Piquaware, some no-name pieces, some late non-collectible pieces. I've only looked at some of the skillets.

    A number of mystery pieces. Won't know what they are until they're stripped. I like those best. Generally very old and a nice surprise.



    This fellow was on the lawn this morning when I went to get the newspaper.



    I can only imagine what the collection of the person a few towns over that is in the Wagner and Griswold Society (WAGS) and has over 2,000 pieces looks like. icon_eek.gif

    Paul,
    You could contact him and perhaps swap a few pieces.

    Whoa! There's a skillet with a book value of $450 - $500 in the collection. icon_eek.gif And, I've just started looking at the skillets.

    This is the skillet: http://www.ecrater.com/p/10332719/griswold-4-7-block-cast-iron-skillet-w.

    R.I.P., Jasmine. "Bestest" little girl.

    Took her to the vet Tuesday evening. She wasn't eating and drooling a lot. Has an oral tumor that is also on her tongue. Switched her to a canned food, to see if she will start eating again. Her weight was down a fair bit.

    Did a search on feline oral tumors and we didn't want her to suffer. We owe that to her.

    We got her in late 1994 and she was at least 2 1/2. That would make her at least 19.

    Called the vet last evening, as he was going away for the weekend starting today. There will be another vet covering, but we wanted to talk with our primary vet. My wife explained that Jasmine still isn'e eating even new, soft canned food mashed with a fork. He said to bring her in as the last appointment at 7.

    Haven't done this since we had to put down Georgette in 1999.

    B.J. is confused and doesn't understand why his little buddy isn't here.
