WAGS Convention updates / WaGS 2021 Convention Recap
« Last post by Dwayne Henson on October 13, 2021, 08:56:30 AM »
WaGs 2021Convention is now in the books. What did you miss? In a nutshell; a fun time, good food, great people.

It always starts the night before with the Camp Oven Cookout. A meet and greet, a time to catch up with old friends, while the cooks prepare a meal in camp ovens. A great way to  start and set the tone for the convention.

Then the next day the convention itself.
This year's presentations included:
Fales & Thayer's Patents
Sportsman Grills and their Changes
D.R. Sperry
Navigating the Forum
Use of a Wood Burning Stove
Show and Tell
Stump the Experts
Followed by a Dinner Buffet

Then the next day:
Favorites and Swap Meet.
Amazing iron to see, touch and discuss
Followed by an Awards Dinner.

A great time with old and new made friends.

Next one is in Dayton, OH
Oct. 6,7,8 2022
See you there.

General Information / Re: Wagner curved logo No 11 with outside heat ring

I can only recall one that the crack "gaped" when heated. Lots of times grease to carbon will seal the crack off. An old Wagner of that size and age is worth trying even if it is just for a user.

Valerie,
  Depending on the size & location of the crack, your skillet could still be useful for cooking some things. It's no longer "collectible", but still good

The only problem I see with pouring it down your drain is if you have older plumbing which might have have a cast iron pipe with a lead packing, Yes you may see PVC where you are pouring it but look at the actual main pipe that leads to your outside sewerage pipe.
 And be aware that pouring a lot of lye down your septic system may kill off the beneficial bacteria that eats the sludge in your septic system.
Also keep in mind that what ever you are pouring down your drains will eventually find it's way into your source of your water supply if you have a septic system and a private well.

No other markings. Got two layers of Seasoning on.  It has a very nice cooking surface.

I believe it is an Unmarked Wagner also.  (Looking at the Handle style etc)

Will be great to see it all cleaned up, and 'maybe' some ghosties or other markings will emerge.

Guesstimate on age... 1915 to 1924.  :smiley:

Well the Number 11 Wagner curved logo is cleaning up nicely unfortunately the cleaning revealed a crack in one of the pour spouts.
Alas the risk of buying dirty iron, You never know what you will find under the crud...sometimes very good sometimes very bad.
I will post some pics soon, Other than the crack it is a nice skillet...I guess that is like saying other than the blown motor it is a nice car
