I Forge Iron

Quenching in old motor oil

Or EMT's!.  But Thanksgiving and Christmas are the big dates for folks trying to deep fry a turkey here in the USA;  often buying 5 gallons of oil and using it the 1 time!

Also  look out for the fryers---I used a regulator off one on my forge for many a year, paid US$3 for the fryer just for it's good propane regulator.

I get my fryer oil from the local supermarket's deli, they change oil a couple times a week. I provide the clearly marked 5 gal. jug with labels and check back regularly so they're not tripping over it. 

My only gripe is it didn't come from the donut fryer so the shop smells like: fish, chicken and burritos. <sigh>

Frosty The Lucky.
