I hope this is in the right place. I picked up a Wagner CI waffle iron yesterday, but I'm missing the ring base. It's a simple ball hinge, so as far as I can tell I can't use it without some sort of base.

I've been looking for some sort of information chart that would let me know what casting numbers would have been on the base, but I've only been able to find this kind of thing for Griswold. Can anybody point me to that kind of resource for Wagner Ware? It is pretty late, Wagner Ware Sydney -o-, and is a No. 9 iron.

Mike, I have a Wagner #9  Pat. date Feb. of 1910.  The only marking on it is a CH under the ball hinge socket.  Don't know if that helps.  If you just want to use it, I'd be making up a base of some sort.  Time to use your imagination and skills that we have all gathered under good old American ingenuity.🙂

Thanks Charlie, I guess it will give me something to watch for. Based on what little I see on eBay (or maybe I just don’t know what to search for) it looks like I’m going to have to brush up my fabrication skills! They’re pretty minimal, so it’ll likely be more adaptation than true fabrication.

Forgot to mention mine is the low base.  I manage to use it on my gas range easily enough.

I’m definitely going to be searching, even if I manage to cobble something together. I’d love a high base, but it seems like those are more rare.

Wagner made other retailer brands also and they may fit your waffle iron.  National comes to mind,  Wardway for Wards.  Likewise  Griswold made Puritan for Sears.  Search online for cast iron collector sites.  

Piqua Favorite used a half ball type hinge and might work too

That’s a good idea, I might be willing to reactivate my Facebook account temporarily for that. I had planned to leave it shut down until after the election. CCF, and many other hideouts on the web just seem so much saner.

A base for a #9 will be much harder to find. 8s are fairly common. Several facebook cast iron sales pages have monthly ISO listings you could check into. Keep watching ebay, never know when one will pop up. I dont think the Wagner bases are marked with a catalog number.
