Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Jim;

 

They are indeed.  The refractory more often.

 

I’d venture two to several times a year, up to a couple years, but an on-going process, with so many ladles in play.

 

They were sometimes made on-site, but there were off-line makers, including Pugh, Treadwell, etc.

Elden,
  Your last sentence implies that the ladles are a "consumable" that gets replaced
fairly often ... ?
