    Well, some times if things seem too good to be true....

    Look what I found. Three "hair plugs" that appear to be someone's idea of stealth repair. Well, it was good for a time, until I had time to inspect the pipe a little closer. Apparently the seller didn't have time to notice such subtle details, all three of them. I must now wrap my head around this discovery. As Shakespeare wrote, our pleasures are sauced with pain.

    It is. Why of all the pipes that undergo misfortune, did it have to be this one? What a shame. Luck has Gewalt ber Leben und Tod.

    Indeed. What I don't understand is Chance missing this and/or failing to note it. He goes over his offerings with a magnifying glass and does very detailed clean ups. I can't see him missing this. T'were me, I'd return it as these flaws were not disclosed.

    Which is what I'm doing right now. I wanted to message Chance first and notify him of the issue, as a courtesy to a respected e-seller. I'm viewing this as just one of those things. One of those things that can be easily corrected to mutual satisfaction.

    Ah pluggy me lad, let us yet me merciful. We all make mistakes. I will proceed in the expectation of an honest and honorable response from this respected seller. Wonders are many here, but what surprises me about all is the shoddy and unsightly clumsiness of the attempted repair. Truly, it would be laughable to me, except that I paid money for this item. That's why I posted it here, so some of you could have a good laugh instead of me. That's how nice I am.

    Oy, that was bad luck, Ed. Hope it was an honest mistake and easily rectified.

    I'm sure it was. Maybe it was a factory "repair" back in the 1930s. A knowledgeable piper told me that many Comoy Extraordinaires came out with repairs back then. Difficult to believe, but it came from a good authority. The rest was probably just oversight.
