…when this wretched thread is over. I sincerely regret bringing up the topic in a previous thread.
Everybody who helped explain, revive, popularize the double iron deserves credit. But nobody here deserves a Nobel prize, because nobody here invented it. If you can find the guy in the 18th century (or earlier) who first put two irons back to back; or if you can find the guy who first bolted the two irons together, let me know. I could care less though, about the petty crap. And I suspect very few other people care.
