    I finally got some cutting wheels for my angle grinder and cut the time down to about 8 minutes.

    Good afternoon everyone...hope all is well. I finally finished cutting the transformers I started on 4 months ago. It hasn't taken that long, I just got sidetracked with my job and have been working on them a little bit at a time. I ended up with 166 pounds of #2 copper.

    The garage is still filling up(not complaining) as fast as I can empty it so that's good. Also, I found an old 3 legged skillet with the top included at my sons house. It belonged to my grandmother and possibly my great grandmother. They used to go camping a lot when my mom was little and they cooked with it on the campfire. The bottom is still black with soot.

    There are only 2 markings that I can see. One is a 13 on the lid and the handle has 13IN on it. I got the electrolysis tank out I made a few years ago and I'm going to clean it up. Sometimes cleaning up cast iron cookware can reveal more markings.

    I'll post some after pics when I get through.

    It is always when we need to use our angle grinder that we realize that it is our last disc and/or that we are out of spare ones. (I just had to go buy some this afternoon.)

    Love your posts with the photos. I wish I had a reason to own such a great iron skillet. Hey when you get it cleaned and re-seasoned cook up something good and take a photo. 73, Mike
