The iron I use most often is this General Electric Cat No 43F33 with a cloth covered cord. It was made in the USA in Bridgeport, Connecticut circa late 1940s or early 1950s and has been in use ever since. Its settings are SYN-RAY-WOOL-COT-LIN. My mother ironed with it on a weekly basis while I was growing up. I like its heft. In comparison, other irons feel like toys. I also have a steam iron I use as a backup.
I’ve never had a reason to stop using it. Do you have something old or passed down that you use for sewing or other household activities?
