In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Old thread revival!

Was not sure where to post but figured this is as good a place as any.  We have been getting rid of some excess stuff and had a pretty good size pile of cast iron.  Pictured is what we have that is up for grabs. Located near Washougal so can meet up with folks who are in the area, or I can ship if someone want to pay for postage.

1 pic for each side, I think some of the sizes show pretty well so you can roughly figure most of them out.

I received a Smithey as a gift and am really digging it. Cooked eggs over medium and pancakes as the first cook and they were flawless. Pretty good first cook test to cast iron that claims pre seasoned.  It passed.
I still use my lodge daily.  I ground the bottom with a flapper wheel years ago and it is now like glass.  The smithy came like glass which was nice.
I will add one more of their skillets and their farm house carbon steel skillet to the collection.  Are they needed, no, worth the price, maybe not to some, but they are cool, look great on the gas range and so far cook really well.

absolutely.
First thing we did in our new house a few years ago was have a gas line run and gas range/stove installed.  Once people make the switch they kick themselves every time they cook for not doing it sooner.

You guys have any trouble doing scrambled eggs on cast iron?  Seems like no matter what I do, a layer of egg sticks to the pan at the end.

I have a super old 3rd generation (at least) pan that is almost perfectly smooth and I cook omlets almost every morning and they slide right off onto the plate.  I use a normal amount of olive oil spray.  For eggs, the pan has to be incredibly seasoned and the smoother the finish the better it works in my experience.  I only have one pan I would fry eggs on.  Fried are easier to deal with then scrambled, with the latter make sure you aren't messing with it every four seconds, do the minimum amount of stirring and flipping.

If its a newer piece of cast you need to sand it to a  polish. Ive done that for all of my cast. I had a lodge i hated until i sanded it. Now i cook eggs over easy all the time. I do make sure to use a little oil or bacon grease.  If you scroll back through this you can likely see some pics of some pieces.
