Cool - will need to listen!

Interesting! I was just looking at and thinking about GF’d DM’s screens. Dan’s project looks great.

I’ll lump this into the thread while we’re all checking up on Dan :wink:


Oh Man, Thanks @dan. Now I’m going to have to take a grinder to all of our nicely seasoned cast iron pans. :slight_smile: We have newer ones because when I got married (23 years ago) My wife threw out all of my old cast iron pans because “They were all black and rusty” :open_mouth:

Well, @dan it’s not the prettiest but I upgraded one of my cast iron skillets. Now on to re-seasoning. I can’t wait to try it.

Note this was one that was previously abused (left in the garage to rust). Sorry.

What grit did you take it to and how long did it take?

I started with an 80 flapper disc on the grinder followed by a 120 flapper, 220 polishing disc, 400 polish then I tried to clean it up a bit. Back down to 320 sandpaper followed by 400 sandpaper paper. I kind half a** the whole process but it is very smooth. Smoother than it looks. I think when it’s seasoned the swirls will diminish. I can’t season tonight because I’m using the oven to cook my 3d printer filament box desiccant. (Can you tell my wife’s gone for a couple days :slight_smile: )


I never answered how long. I didn’t spend a lot of time, maybe 45 minutes with mostly the angle grinder.
