    How Former makes a Billiard

    A new video frm Lars Kiel. Best watched in a larger format on youtube. The thing that struck me when I first watched it, was the was the ease and confidence Former displays throughout the video, with the lathe work, French wheel, and shaping the stem. Of course, he's been making and repairing pipes for about 60 years.

    Work is the curse of the smoking classes

    Anyone who works on a metal lathe knows how difficult it is to control cuts while simultaneously turning cross slide and carriage wheels. Amazing control, without using a copy profile and pattern of the pipe bowl. And the rest of the finishing, that was done by hand, is also equally amazing. Bravo.
