    This discussion almost had me convinced to order one, but then I remembered how much I rely on the auto-turnoff feature of my current steam iron. I never put water in it anymore, because it always leaked, but I do think the safety features are important.

    I found my dry iron at a Hospice Resale shop. Love it! And yep, it does get hot.

    Until you use a solid plate iron you won't know the difference it makes.

    The good place to find old solid plate irons is at a church rummage sale. I have found two this last year, Sunbeam models. Good secret Santa gifts even if used.
    Got fabric?

    I love my dry iron. I got mine thru Home Depot on line only for $30.00. Mom still has hers from the 50's and still uses it.

    Also Amazon has them in stock too. I love this iron, it's the only one I use. I have a new one for back up in case it is discontinued down the road.
    Such a good idea, buying a backup while it is available. These days if I find anything I think I can't live without, I buy more than one, knowing it won't be there when I need it again. What ever happened to reliability in products?

    What is the advantage to having a dry iron?

    Now is they'd only make a rectangle one. Same size as a regular iron only not pointed on one end. My neice and I both said this when we were working on the T-shirt quilts. No holes, of course.
