    Playful Pipes for project work this time

    Hello Everyone!

    Got these pipes today. Wanted to try them getting cleaned by myself.

    Left to right:

    1. Bruyere extra bent bulldog.
    2. Kaywoodie continental made in London, England, billiard.
    3. Dr. Plumb Maxi, (shape ).
    4. No name briar billiard, crack up till the middle of the chamber.

    All are used & generous amount of cake in all of them, covering almost all of the chamber dia. The hardened greasy tobacco juice/tar from the shank is taken out from these pipes right now.

    Those will make fine project pipes, Arvind. I look forward to seeing what you do with them.

    Lots of work needed on those poorly treated pipes. Have fun.

    I'd love to attempt something like that but second hand pipes here are not only hard to get they don't come cheap either.

    All the best and power to your elbow.

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence.

    Thanks Anthony. I have got IPA today. Most probably will start tommorrow. I plan to give them salt + alcohol douche after the bowls being cleaned.

    Sure Billy. Thanks. I will keep posting. It seems to be interesting. Lets see, can I retain the red dot in the dr.plumb pipe & the spade symbol in the kaywoodie
    Best regards,

    Yes and yes. Without problem. They are both inlays, not painted.

    You're real trouble is with the cracked bowl. That will require some expertise and even then the reliability will be in question.

    Anthony, Oh! thanks for your tip. Also, maybe I ll make the pipe with a cracked bowl, a showcase example, just as a historical moment ...not sure though..just the waves in my mind ...

    Yeah, that's a bad one. It'll need more than adhesive. Mechanical stabilization is required for any hope of long-term reliability. The fissure will also need to be insulated against the heat of the chamber. NO SUPERGLUE!
