The house we moved into in 1960 in Redwood City had a electric stove with the old fashioned exposed coils. Mama rattled them pots and pans for 45 years there, and a good decade before we moved there at least. I'm pretty sure the skillets I have left have the handles with screws or rivets, not much left tho

Not going to be that early Rich, my parents got married in 1944, the stuff was most likely a wedding present. Too bad I didn't know you were on the lookout for this stuff earlier, I had a 12" skillet with lid we gave to Goodwill a few years back. I still have a 10 & 9 inch skillet with lids I think, tho I ain't positive. This first one is from a 6-quart stock pot, Bob's outside water bowl
What the heck Ray. Get your arse back to that Goodwill shop and get Rich that skillet and lid. Geeze I tell ya some people. :emoji_laughing:

I actually had all that stuff in my Lance cabover camper for eight years until last year when I sold it. Once it was decided my shoulders weren't going to do anymore camping or long distance driving things left here via garage sales and goodwill donations. A hell of a lot of pasta was cooked up in Bob's water bowls! RAY
 
Sounds like one failed high school science experiment trying to fix another.
Science! Really....

Here's a mock up for a dual sprayer setup before making permanent mounts and a fixture to hold the part being cleaned in the machine. 4" diameter spray pattern @ 10" @ 50 PSI nitrogen. This was an odd one as the sprayers both atomized the same solvent, normally they're different, say one acetone, the other IPA 99 for a rinse - etc.

Mine are 87 - A. On the top they have a silhouette of who I assume is Paul Revere with 18 on the left and 01 on the right. Then Revere Ware in the middle, the size under that, then the 87 - A under the size. Maybe A stands for America.
Yup . Most of mine are 87 - A , the 6qt. Dutch oven says 86 - A . They all came as a set .

They definitely don't make 'em like they used to!
That's true Red . The good stuff lasts forever if you take care of it .
Our Goodwill would have $30 on that,
Some of the prices went up here . Not worth it at some point . I bought a pair of Realistic speakers from the early 80's for 8 bucks . Re-foam kit was $30.00 . Walnut cabinets cleaned up nice . They sound good . Especially with some period Black Sabbath .
 
Yeah good score.

The Revere ware is the only pot my mom would cook her pinto beans in.

That first one falls into the '47 to '68 . Made in the US .
Bob's drinking out of a nice Dutch oven . That date was the last of the good stuff .

Yeah, it had a nice thick heavy lid Rich. My older sis says they were around before I was born, when she was a little girl, six years younger than I. Nothing's too good for Bob. RAY

Rich, I never thought of you as an Iron Man person.
 
Makes a great pot of beans . I have a 6 qt. with the heavy bottom . I like it better than the cast iron .
 
Or Tony Bennett
Well of course. I didn't like Tony that much back in the day, but as I got older, I've found a deeper appreciation for he. His duets with KD Lang or LAdy Gaga are very good too. Sinatra often said Tony B was his favorite.
