Just finished this last one - a no name lattice bent meer. Dallas dropped it by my office this afternoon for a look at it. It had a stem and screw on connection that held a filter. The pipe cleaner would not go through with the filter removed. I brought it home to see what I could do for it. I flared the original connection but still no luck on it. I cut a new stem for it and fit it so that it is a good open draw but takes a cleaner. I like the final product better. I have included the old stem in the photo for comparison.

Looks great, Steve - can't wait to try it! :-) My guess is that this proves it was a, shall we say, less than prime quality pipe? :-) It's a no-name block from a local shop, fwiw.
