I've Got Them All!!!!!

YAY!!!!

My long awaited package came yesterday!

The final piece needed to complete my collection of Thorpe rolling pins -- the Baker's Special.



Now I have all 6 cylinder sizes.

10 x 2" home version
12 x 3" small commercial
15 x 3" medium commercial
15 x 3.5" Baker's Special
18 x 3" large commercial
18 x 3.5" Master Baker

And all of them are the pre-1985 steel bearing pins from Cheshire Connecticut -- not the post 1985 nylon bearing pins from Hamden Connecticut!

I am sooooooo excited!!!!

Nice collection, but don't you need a "conceal carry" permit for the last two?

Let's just say.....between the pins and my knife case



NOBODY argues with me in MY kitchen!

When I had a rolling pin made, the two old coots who made it made me promise not to use it on my (then) husband. They didn't say anything about future husbands, so DH is on notice. <big grin>
