The new Fretz Cast Iron Annealing Pans are a big improvement over what we have had before in annealing pans._x000D_
Fretz Cast Iron Annealing Pans are much heavier, giving you a very sturdy platform for annealing and soldering with a stable, deliberate rotation when needed. This 6" pan weighs a respectable 4.6 Lbs._x000D_
No more wobbling like the lighter annealing pans._x000D_
The Fretz 6" Cast Iron Annealing Pan uses heavy duty bearings to support the added weight and the cast iron finish is first quality, just what you would expect from a Fretz product._x000D_
Fill the Fretz Cast Iron Annealing Pan with Bulk Pumice (not included) to complete your annealing station This 6" pan takes less than 1 lb of pumice to fill._x000D_
Another great thing about the Fretz Cast Iron Annealing Pan is you can use it as a soldering station. Fretz has designed these pans to also be used with the popular white soldering boards (not included). The 6" x 6" board fits snugly across the top of the pan held in cast in slots.
