Hello from Custer, SD
« on: November 16, 2021, 10:08:34 PM »
Hello. Thanks for allowing me into the group. I thought I used to be a member, but I must have just been a creeper who had never actually joined the group.  :grin: Anyways, Iím here now and looking forward to seeing what I can learn.

Iím mostly just a cast iron user, not an actual collector of any one particular brand. Since I can only use so many pieces myself, I like to buy nice users, clean them up, and give them to others and spread the love of using cast iron.

I like to learn about the different brands and learn how to identify the unmarked ones. It makes me happy to pick up a skillet at an antique store, turn it over, and know a little about what Iím looking at. Iíd like to learn what I can about a skillet I bought today. Apparently, itís called an ďinitial skillet.Ē Mine has the initials SW. So, Iím off to see what info I can find.  :cheesy:
