I bought this pipe without closing reading the ebay sellers description and now had a pipe with a button to repair. I decided to shape a new button and broke out the saw. Fortunately, GBD stems are quite thick and this one gave me a lot of material to work with. This one will be a gift for a holder, not a clencher, so he should be good to go.

I posted all the details on Steve Laug's "Reborn Pipes" but here is a before and after shot, and a link to the blog.

That is truly a beautiful pipe.

Did you say it was a gift?

I promise I'll act surprised when it shows up at my doorstep.

Sorry Blue, this one goes to a gentleman who fancies my youngest daughter. IF he is still in favor come December 25th....

VERY impressive job done Al. I've been a toolmaker/moldmaker my whole career and you certainly have the talent to go into pipe repair. cheers

Hmm, thanks, but I'm not sure about that! It was a bit of a frustrating experience, but hopefully my skill level will improve. Er, actually I hope not to make that mistake too often!
I was chatting with pipe maker Nate King at the show and told him my hat is doffed to real pipe makers who can shape a stem from scratch. My buddy Steve Laug can do this on repairs, but I haven't ventured down that path yet.
