Wow crewsk, I did not know so many folks made their own pins and had these family heirlooms that are so precious to them.

When I read this, it reminded me of a plastic rolling pin that my mom got from Tupperware. One end of it has a cap that you take off to fill the rolling pin with ice to keep it cold when rolling out pie crust & anything else that needs to be kept cold while rolling.

DC, I have a Bersa 380 for that purpose too! Plus several other shotguns & my sons .22 works if I'm in a pinch. But if I happen to be in the kitchen away from the guns, the rolling pin will work wonders.

Wow c-chef - I checked out your link. I already knew you're the queen of kitchen equipment and the queen of soul food but now I know you're also the queen of eBay buying. What a fantastic buy!

Can you give me some advice re buying rolling pins on eBay? My younger daughter makes terrific pastry (she worked at a local pastry shop for awhile). She's equiping her first "real" kitchen and I know she would appreciate a professional rolling pin like the one you got for your friend. I know how to bid on eBay, what I'm looking for are descriptions or brands I can translate into eBay search terms. I'm willing to lurk until I find something that comes close to the bargain you got. (Her birthday is in June - that gives me plenty of time.) TIA

I think cast iron frying pans are better. Besides, they have this satisfying little ringing sound when you whack the head of an intruder. :twisted:

Thanks for the kudos!

Sure I will help you. What are friends for? Why don't I just periodically bump this thread up and post some likely canidates for you? Will that work?

Better yet, I have 2 blow guns that could double as rolling pins!
