Thanks again for the suggestion, hadn’t thought of it until you said something, duh...

    I learned this trick when I was in 6th grade/that was back when the World and I were quite young.

    I told my mom about it and so she dug out the good silver and it cleaned up really nice.

    The thing was that I'd forgotten that our teacher had LINED a pan with aluminum foil and I'd USED an ALUMINUM PAN---

    Can you say 'Permanently Discolored Baking Pan---

    Those aluminum cooking pans are bad for our health and should be used for other than food anyway Roy.

    I haven't tried that 'Trick' since.

    I will confess to enjoying my cold barley pops from aluminum cans

    Those cans are coated on the inside so they are less likely to be unhealthy because of the aluminum.

    Do you mean the dementia/Alzheimer's thing? I thought that had been debunked? Or is there something else?

    Either way: I much prefer cast iron pans. I think the only al pot/pan I have is the double boiler I use to melt wax for making a blacksmithing finish.

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.

    Metals are a funny thing, and the only one that the human body seems to actually need much of is iron. We do need trace amounts of other metals but aluminum is not one of them. I have no idea if the alzimers/dimentia theory has been proven or disproven. Aluminum, particularly in deodorant, has been linked to certain cancers. They cannot prove or disprove its association at this time. To be safe I avoid consuming it as much as I can, and I bet I still get some, simply because it’s very common these days.

    Well, I finally finished this Wosty Celebrated IXL in Cocobolo and brass. Several light coats of Renaissance Wax buffed in were all the finish it needed:

    Added to my growing honing pile. I gotta stop rescaling and catch up on my honing! (not to mention yardwork)
    There are many roads to sharp.
