    George Dibos Video Repair Series - "Replacing a Dunhill 6475 Stem plus Related Tasks"

    Pipe repairman par excellence, George Dibos, has released a 23-part video series on YouTube documenting in detail the restoration and restemming of a classic Dunhill 6475. Gentlemen, this is like a masterclass in pipe repair. It's a must-watch for anyone interested in pipe repair and restoration. Even if you're not looking to get some dust under your nails yourself, you should still find it interesting to see what goes into a high-end pipe repair. Go. Watch. Now!

    Highly entertaining but I'm getting an education from his demos as well. The drilling of the draft hole alone was more complex than I ever thought.

    Miss my tools and oh yes my dust collection system didn't work either.

    They are well worth a watch, I watched them ALL on Friday night/Saturday morning (I know, I need a life...). Anyone who has done any pipe work, woodworking, or machining will appreciate the care that George puts into making a stem. Some other neat tricks in there as well.

    For some reference, the finished pipe 1953 Dunhill Shell 6745 F/T. Pictures credit to George Dibos.

    I was wondering whether he put the white dot on it. And the way he goes about it he's fully entitled to do so.

    Very similar character to my Dad in as far as extreme exactitude was concerned - just a different scale.
