The best iron to use is pure pig iron I worked for Eljers for 39 years and know a lot about the process from foundry to enameling.

Hi, folks.

You'll find the British societies serving this industry at www.vea.org.uk, and the North American societies at www.porcelainenamel.com. Both many be able to help you. Good luck.
