Where's the boiler? lol


Yeah, I love it too. Quite the masterwork. You gotta imagine that it was a 'project' thing for someone...as I can't believe there would be an actual 'need' for a design like that. Looks like something out of the "Lemony Snicket" movie that Jim Carey as the Sea Captain would have used. Any idea what the scale is? It dosn't look super large...but one can rarely tell...could be three feet long!

I like how you can adjust the draw on it with the screw button below the bowl!! And with that feature, you know it will pass the all important "pipe cleaner" test Razz

I don't think it's for changing the draw. I'm pretty sure it's a standard cavalier goop dump.

Meh, I've seen better. Sleep































...I lied, holy crap, that's a fascinating, awesome pipe! Looks like a cleaning nightmare, but you always know the draft hole is centered! cheers

I wonder if someone could recreate that... Todd? You like challenges, right? Laughing (...kidding...)

(...or am I? scratch )

Cool

Should be easy to recreate actually.
Tinsky or someone made a replaceable bowl cavalier a couple years back. Where the rubber meets the road that's all this is. It just looks cooler cause it's old (or made to look old)

If you think about it, it WOULD be pretty easy to make this. The entire bowl could be turned on a lathe. I was too lazy to translate the french when I posted this, and looking back on it now it doesn't say much about its age, but does mention a patent. If this IS a reproduction, they must have cobbled it from some antique parts. The metal fittings don't bear the marks of "fake aging", and if that horn stem is synthetic, I want to know who makes it!

I must admit I had to Google "Steampunk". Now it makes sense.

Ah, yes. My apologies. Once a sub-genre of science fiction literature, steampunk was a sort of Jules Verne revival, if you will. Now it's largely specialized coslpay. (Not to denigrate the hobby, but it's not my thing.) Somewhere in the middle, there were a few really talented craftsmen re-building modern contrivances such as computers and cell phones from brass and wood, to look like they were made a hundred years ago. Sort of an Edwardian vision of the future. Closely related is "Dieselpunk", with the same spirit from the perspective of the 1930s or 40s.

the fittings et al could be old and repurposed.. it is Steampunk.
I'm not saying it is.. I'm just saying its possible.

Yeah, I found a whole bunch of sites on the whole hobby. The "Wild Wild West" movie and original series were both Steampunk I learned.

From the looks of it, I could definitely abide Dieselpunk as well...
