Last one...

Post by JMG » Sat Feb 18, 2017 8:13 pm

This is my last pipe before leaving for PNG. I had mostly finished the stummel some time ago and sort of forgot about it. Saw it yesterday. Unfortunately, I just didn't have time to make a hand cut stem for it so this is a preform stem that I am tweaked for the pipe. It's hard to tell from the photo, but it has a red/black cumberland shank ring.

This pipe was made for a bush pilot. I tried, but was politely turned down.

May it bring blessings to the effort.

Well done buddy. You're what's right about CPS.

Peace,

No, no, no. Poor drafting.

I offered to pay for him to keep it. Since it was already made for a bush pilot buddy of his, he refused any payment. I meant I hope the bush pilot enjoys the gift.

No donation made. JMG is a terrible money guy. You don't want him running the school fundraiser.

I accept your apology. It was unnerving.
