Cast Iron Stoves and Ranges etc / Cast Iron rings for old oil range
« Last post by jane on November 02, 2018, 12:29:45 pm »
HI all. I am trying to source some parts for my mom's old Enterprise oil stove. She still uses it as a her main source of heat and cooking. The parts have become hard to find since the Enterprise-Fawcett Foundry went out of business. Apparently the enterprise oil pots have difference rings on the bottom than top, but this is not the same for other oil ranges. She has one good one left. We are trying to find a supplier for these pieces, or a cast iron foundry who could make them using the good one for a model. We're also looking for the pilot. If anyone has any recommendations, it'd be much appreciated. Located in NL, so east coast would be ideal, simply due to shipping costs, with these items being heavier.  Going to attach some pictures below...

Hi Hank, the forum isn't that active as yet, but I just added a buy/sell forum.

Hello
I am new to the forum and I am wondering if it is appropriate to use it to seek out old Canadian pieces for purchase. If yes then where would I go on the site to inquire about what is available

It is somewhat of a novelty item these days I guess. I like the idea of having the perfect pan for one serving, especially when the eggs fit a piece of toast so well. However, when several kids are waiting for breakfast it certainly is a bottleneck. When I first got it the description that came to mind was a "bachelor's pan". I haven't spotted any for sale. Are they out there?

Endurance was registered in 1919 by Canada Foundries, but I would think these are post 1930's. Exactly when, not sure. I have a couple here, but have never used them to be honest.

General Discussion for Hollow Ware / Smart Endurance Skillet
« Last post by Chad on October 14, 2018, 08:18:57 pm »
I have a Smart Endurance Skillet and from what I've read on the site under dating I take it to be about 50 years old. I'm wondering how difficult they are to find because a second skillet would sure speed things when I do get around to using it.
It seems that the corners stay a little cold on the element on my stove but I guess that wouldn't be a problem on a wood fired cook stove.
I've heard of people using a piece of copper sheet or plate to even the heat out. Has anyone here tried that?

You're right on the dates, love these wood handled skillets.

I rescued this one from a scrapper's bin a few years ago because it looked pretty Canadian.
After some searching I now think it to be a Camp Chef griddle. :(
Break it to me gently (I'll do the not-so-gentle breaking later).

Sorry, been away for a while.

Problem with these older pieces, many insurance companies balk at the idea of using them in a home - they won't insure. Put it on kijiji for best offer, someone may want it for a cabin or something.
