      Oh, and YOU have to check out this out Catolgue of their Cast Iron Stuff. Great reference on OLD cast iron from Barn Door hands, shelves, fire tongs, etc, etc. A must for any collector of cast iron to check it out. It is:

      Looks like the handle comes off on this one. That is what makes it smart as you can heat the iron without heating the handle.

      @ FORT -- Lol, now that would be Dumb to heat the handle....so they were Smart!! LOL
