    Hello, jimbo44!

    ...Very similar character to my Dad in as far as extreme exactitude was concerned - just a different scale.
    What is he doing ?

    Best,
    Arvind.

    Greetings of the day!

    That has come out very beautifully. Do you have a pre-restoration picture of this pipe ? Do share.

    I thought you would like it, Bill. I was really surprised to see that he did all of the drilling and tenon cutting on the drill press. For a new stem, the lathe would be much easier.

    The exactitude is the thing that makes it all worth doing, I think. Everything else is just the pretty fluff around it.

    You'll need to check the first video to see the pipe as it was previously. The stem is entirely new and hand cut.
