Shows what you know. I was thinking about rounding the end of the dowel. Razz Plus, all of my stupid old toothbrushes have square handles. Sad

Cool

Yeah, the old Oral-B ones do have square handles, don't they? I'm talking about the newfangled ones with the no-slip grip and ergonomically designed dental tool shaped head. It's the latest in pipe restoration. Razz

I'm a Nevadan that actually uses a toothbrush for its original intended purpose, so I suppose that deserves some mention. Laughing I think most of the old ones are in the gun cleaning kit... scratch

Cool

Ah, yes, the multi-purpose toothbrush. I definitely think you should explore each of these excellent ideas and report back.

P.S. Old toothbrushes worn to caterpillar-on-a-stick condition make excellent auto detailing brushes, particularly for removing stubborn deposits from the crevices around lights and door handles. But you shouldn't recycle them back to oral hygiene service.

Have to agree on the Senior Reamer not expanding wide enough for the bigger bowls. Plus the tapered nose doesn't do much for bowls that are pretty perpendicular. And the knurled handle plays hell on my hand unless I wear a glove if I have multiple pipes to ream.

Got in one of those English made Mitchell Thomas reamers, and don't particularly like that much. Very clumsy.

Perhaps I'll try the dowel and sandpaper thing next.

My Maestro poker needs another major go-over, as well as one or two others that have built up too much cake.

I'm just not good on using a penknife or some such. Too knutzy.

Neutral


Cheers,

RR

(Talking to hear myself talk here)

Keep after it with the pipe nail, and the rest of the stuff
you're talking about falls into the category of "toys to
play with when you're bored and want something to do
with yourself."

I agree with the pipe nail therapy suggestion once you've got the pipe in order . Knives, sandpaper, reamers, and toothbrushes are terrific for refurbishing the nasty estates with thick cakes and the like. After that,a pipe nail will keep it dottle free and the cake nice, thin, and solid.

Agreed. My only use for the Kleen Reem at this point is for newly-acquired estate pipes...the pipe nail is a wonderful invention that ain't pretty, but sure does work. Cool

Actually I forgot about your prior post on this Yak.

OK, so I'll have a go at this. But first need to remove the excess......

I got a cheap butner reamer and my favorite pipe has some cake built up. the cake is mostly just below the rim of the bowl and the flattens out below so its basically like a lump around the bowl. Can anyone tell me how to ream it with this butner reamer, i can't figure it out lol
