Those are nice irons. Wish they were coming my way. Don't want to pay the shipping bill. Does that company even make them anymore? Throughout history, wonder which company made the best.

Glad to see my advert created some humorous reaction. Dowsing irons were the most popular reliable and a very welcome replacement to what I started the trade with, which was the gas iron. If one of those got too hot you had to put the damp rag through the handle and dangle it in the water bucket. Today it's steam but not for me give me the Dowsing any day, and to carry on the thread, to use one is divine!
