    I do the same!

    My old Classic B&D has been knocked off the table many times, on hard tile floor, and still works great. It's the one I take to classes and toss in the trunk of the car. I use the Reliable iron for steam and I have a dry iron that works the best when using starching and for fusing. Just like machines, I have an iron for different pressings.
    Got fabric?

    I recently bought a digital Black & Decker iron....$40........I used a 20% off coupon and Bed, Bath and Beyond and got $8 off of that. I love it and so far, have not had any leaking problem.

    I have had good luck with my Sunbeam Steam Master. The model that I got has a retractable cord which has kept it on
    the ironing board with the falling off accidents. It also turns itself off after about 15 minutes.

    I have this one too - it's Great.
    The Rowenta I had was a leaker after only 9 months.

    An iron won't leak if you don't put any water in it. ..........LOL

    I keep a mister bottle handy when I need to iron anything.

    I had one of those $100 irons which was expensive for me. Leaked like a seive. Bought one a Wal-Mart and happy with it. Then I was in Wear & Share, bought a haf size iron for $2 and now I have one just the right size for quilting no leaks.

    Stay away from the Rowenta Irons. They will all leak eventually. I finally got smart and bought a cheap iron at Walmart and it has already lasted longer than my last three Rowenta irons!

    Thank you all for your comments on the iron. I was going to break down and buy myself a "good" meaning expensive iron but now I think I'm just going to keep my old Black and Decker since it doesn't leak and spend that money on buying more material for a quilt.
