    Flea market find

    I hit up the flea market often. Just looking for good deals. Always on look out for items I can use. Been looking for old cast iron I could use for lead ingot molds. I found one this weekend.


    Looks in good shape. Price was good.

    Personally I would not use that to pour lead into. I believe it is a rare piece, in all honesty I don't think I've ever seen one like that. I'm far from an antique cast iron expert but I'd do some checking before exposing it to lead. I'd sure never eat anything out of it after pouring lead into it. Maybe I'm all wet on this, but I ain't afraid of much but lead is one of those things. I use an aluminum corn bread stick mold to pour and make my ingots in.

    Hmmm ..... maybe I need to check it out before I pour lead in it. Anything I pour lead in is never used for anything but lead.

    I agree with JK. I bet my mother in law knows something about these. I can ask her if you have trouble getting a proper ID.

    Which brings to mind the old tune:
    "I come home with my pay, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
    She asks me what I make, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
    She thinks her advice is a contribution
    But if she will leave that will be a solution
    And don't come back no more
    Mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law"

    Just poking a little fun and you may not be old enough to remember that tune.

    Is not your collection the reason you had to move from your last home, you sorta outgrew it or your collection did.

    Wife found similiar skillets on the intranet just now. Googled "cast iron skillet with round holes". What she found looked exactly the same.
