Ha ha, I bet you read that title thinking I was being saucy and posting in the wrong area huh, no, damn, didn't work then, oh poo. bounce 


Out of the pipe kits I purchased recently 2 of the 6 are not to my mind suitable for pipes to be made for sale, bummer huh, ah well, that's life for ya. I got to have some fun and some more practise by going ahead and making pipes from them anyway, sadly they'll just sit in a box now as the chambers are too darn deep for my teeny baccy rations. As they're not going to be sold I didn't fuss over the finish very much on them so yeah, they look a little rough, didn't see the point in finishing 'em too nice.

This one the draught hole has been drilled too high which will of course result in a mucky pipe is not smoked carefully, no one is going to want the added hassle of building a think heel cake and it isn't right I think to try selling it like this.

This one there is a flaw in the chamber, it's only small but I worry it could result in a burn out if the smoker doesn't take the time to build a good cake, again making it not suitable for sale to my mind, yup, in the box it went. I enjoyed mucking about with form on this one, didn't really think about what I was doing when I shaped it, just let the shape come out on it's own, most folk wont like it I know but I love the look of it and it feels marvellous in the hand, shame really.

Too-deep drilling : every Pete system pipe I've ever seen has been drilled way high off the bottom, and they smoke fine. Somebody, somewhere, makes meerschaum buttons that bring the bottom level of the chamber up to level. They probably don't cost that much (or you could make one from a junker). Once it's caked over, there you have it. Or make one of waste briar.

Second one : It's hard to imagine someone not finding that attractive on an informed buyer-informed seller basis.

Quit giving up.

I agree with Yak that is not an unsalvagable pipe. If you sold it to me, I would slap some charcoal and buttermilk on the inside of that bowl and start smoking. I would not sell it after applying coat, I am saying if you told me it was there, gave me a discount, then that is what I would do. I would take pictures all along the way just to annoy Yak. I would also switch out to an ebonite stem and smoke aromatics at democrat party functions, just for the same reason. I do not however have the money to buy a pipe at this juncture.
