Nice billiard, Ron. I like it the way it is....without blasting it. Pits are cool, they have character...like you.
Fine job...would be proud to smoke that one.

Nice work Ron. I really like that stem. Is acrylic more difficult to work than vulcanite? Looks pefectly shiny.

Thank you Mike! Acrylic is a bit harder to hand cut while Vulcanite is a lot softer.
But, if ya ask me I like acrylic more for smoking just because I won't ever turn green on ya. And if ya use a softy as I do the hardness of acrylic won't matter anyhow. Wink

I like it. Shaping looks good to me. Can't wait to see the final exterior. Oh, and I like that stem btw.

I'm not suggesting it. I'm just throwing it out there for discourse. With the accidental 1 inch chamber would it make sense to turn it into more of a pot to reduce the overall chamber size? Does 1 inch work for a pot? I only have a small older Grabow pot, I don't know what would seem an excessive chamber width for a pot. Pot guys wanna educate me? Monbla, you're a pot guy, tell me what's what.

I've seen a lot of large chambered pipes in all shapes. I don't think it matters what shape it is.
The only mistake made by me was that I intended to drill a 7/8" chamber not a 1". The thickness
of the walls of the chamber are just fine, I just wanted a pipe with thicker walls for esthetic reasons.
Sorry if there was some confusion here. Wink

I should have that through better! But, yes, I think. When I think of Monbla I think of a punto Oro pot but I might have mixed that up in my head.

I was looking at it like you ended up with too much chamber. Now I understand, thanks.

I know he's mentioned how ghosting isn't a problem for him. Well, except maybe with Lakelands but I've never heard his stance on the Acapulco district!

After reading your query I measured ALL 36 Pots that I have and the AVERAGE ID of the bowl seems to be btwn 7/8" and 1 " . The only one that I have that's less is a grp 3 sized BBB Shell finished pot at 3/4". And most Pots I have are really square in cross-section of bowl width x height ratio.

I really appreciate that thorough response. I can say with certainty that my collection would not be any help with a pot shape study. After your comment I question if my Dr. Grabow is a pot really or just has the appearance of one because of the thick walls. I believe it may be deeper than wide in the chamber so not so square. I'll have to check. I have an old, no name, cheaply made Italian pot with sub par engineering that is a beater pipe to me but that's it. So I wasn't joking when I asked, thanks.

Sorry to hijack your thread Ron. I will be keen to see the updated pics of the progress.

Michael, did you go ahead and purchase a quality set of calipers for assessing height to width bowl ratios? No need to spend $150 on a set of Mitutoyo's when your local Lowes has digitals with a lifetime guarantee for around $20. You could also precisely check the thickness of cake in your bowls, or thickness of your stems internally and externally, or a variety of other things you might come up with when you are contemplatively smoking a pipe.

THAT'S WAAAAY to OCD !! I just used a metric dial caliper that I've had for years and accounted for around 1/16" of cake, Just ballpark numbers as anymore is really useless Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Yep, that's what I was going to say. Just ballpark figures are all you really need to know, as long as you keep everything within thirty thousandths you're good! Wink

Okay, I decided that blasting the pipe would just not be affordable or justifiable seeing
that it's not good enough to sell to try to recoup the cost. So I just went ahead and stained
and waxed it so at least it won't look like an unfinished piece on my rack. And no I haven't
and won't smoke it, that's just a strange shadow in the tobacco chamber.
