I'm happy with what I accomplished today with them. Had to top some of the stummels and scrub others. All I have to do tomorrow is polish the stems and wax the briar. Stems took some work. Most had shallow teeth marks/ chatter. One was badly oxidized.Cleon wrote: ↑Sat Jan 12, 2019 5:36 pmI don't know what you paid for it but, all in all, that's a superb lot of pipes.Goose55 wrote: ↑Sat Jan 12, 2019 4:29 pmLot of five pipes I won from PipeStud for a fair price are all exclusive pipes. Tinsky, Castillo, Radice, Charatan, Rutherford. But I have my work cut out for me. I've already begun bringing them back from the brink. All of them can be redeemed. Just gonna take time. All afternoon is my estimate.
Shape they were in when I got them. Oh, them stems ;-/
I will arrange them, restored, in the same grouping as my original post and post the results
