    Need Help with CI ID

    CI gurus... I was wondering if I could get help with identifying a couple of pans? A good friend of mine was recently given a couple of pans from his mother. He's trying to restore them, as they were in REALLY bad shape (looks like he may have taken a drill attachment to one of them). Can anyone confirm who made these? and potentially a rough estimate on the year?

    Is this a Wagner? (thats a piece of grass on it, not a scratch)

    I'd love to be able to help him out if possible. He grows ~40 different kinds of peppers in his backyard in VA, smokes them on his WSM, and sends me packets of flakes and grounds of different varieties. He's been playing around with making his own rubs and sending them to me for feedback. Kind of a fun process, but dang he grows some crazy spicy stuff!

    The 8 KG pan is a BSR, as you suggested.

    Then other pan is an unmarked Wagner. They often times made those for different stove makers though out their tenure as manufactures.

      No problem! I hope your friend enjoys his new finds! He should be able to clean these up pretty easily. These are not in that bad of shape. Believe me, I have seen them waaaaay worse than this.

      Spinaker this is after working on them for days trying different approaches lol. I saw the "before" picks, definitely scary!

    Ditto on Spin’s assessment of the shape they’re in, almost cosmetic. Tell yer friend to lose the power tool. Nice pieces.

      Thanks FireMan ! I did... I don't know much, but I know he needs to be more gentle with his babies and drop the drill! Think I got him pointed in the right direction, and he really appreciates the help from you guys on the ID's. 👍🏻

    Make sure to show him this link. You will never need power tools again. And it doesn't hurt the iron at all. Power tools can really dig in, they are faster, but they can also damage that vintage iron. I don't have a problem using them on newer pans, but those vintage ones are one of a kind.

      I actually mentioned that to him first - he’s got garage space and is fairly mechanically inclined but... he had read up on it somewhere and wasn’t ready to take it on. No doubt it’s ideal, just overwhelming to some degree. At least he’s put down the drill! And was VERY appreciative of the extra info around when those pieces were potentially made!
