- I've never seen beveled holes in a stem before. Is it just an esthetic thing?
I got the idea from a picture of a high dollar freehand pipe(custom..one off ) Told myself I can do that !
The holes will only work on a very wide stem pipe..I took extreem care to stay clear of the draft hole..various Dremmel bits (tapered ) drilled the holes lay out the hole spacing so it is all equal..polishing was done with a conical Dremmel buff..shaped on a grinder and loaded with marine fiberglass polish..the rest of the stem was polished with a buffer..With a name like holymoler this should be right up your alley LOL
I am eyeballing a Peterson African Meerschaum in my collection that is short and squatty with a very wide stem..its next LOL
Thanks go out to my friend Coastie3202 for getting me back into rustification
