    Checking In

    Glad to hear that you are doing well. Here in NC it's finally going to be above freezing for the first time in a more than a week. This is a major cold spell for us. I'm looking forward to warmer temps myself. It's been miserable between spending the holidays in Indiana with their cold temps and...

    Used Lamb Skin Pipe Pouch odor

    Hufflepuff - thanks. I was pondering the idea of coffee grounds because I've used that in my car before. I'm glad you say I should use "used grounds." I didn't think about the oils in the coffee beans. LOL Thanks, Martin

    Used Lamb Skin Pipe Pouch odor

    Thanks for the replies. I will see if the smell will diminish over time, but it's pretty off-putting and none of my other pipe pouches have ever smelled like that. The suggestion that it's cigar related is interesting as the B&M sees a lot of cigar smokers.

    Used Lamb Skin Pipe Pouch odor

    Hey Everyone, I was able to get this gorgeous lamb skin two-pipe and tobacco pouch at a local B&M. Not sure if the previous owner used some tobacco that left an odor, but the smell coming from the pouch is not akin to anything I smoke. I love the look and feel of the thing, but I need to do...

    Aw, maaaaaan, sheeeeeee.........

    Good luck on the pipe and take care of your back. I'm not sure what back issue you are recovering from, but speaking as someone who had back surgery, taking care of that part of your body is numero uno! Hope you get the gray water pipe fixed soon.

    Thanks. Yeah, I tried that and the flint I inserted wouldn't fit. I guess the old one is stuck. At least now I have a place to start. Thanks!!!

    1950s era Sido German Lighter

    Hey Everyone, I have not posted in a while, taken a break from online, but my wife gave me an awesome Christmas present, and I need some help. As one of my presents she gave me a 1950s era Sido lighter that says US Zone on it. I think it is a German brand, the writing looks like it. I grew up in...

    Smoke Odor

    I have to ditto the Kilz paint primer. I have also found (at least in my car) that having an open container of ground coffee does the trick. But, yes, clean the walls as best you can, without destroying the drywall. Then a good, thick coating of Kilz, then 2-3 coatings of paint should do the...

    Tending towards simplicity

    I think I tend towards the - I need less crap in my life - but that's it out necessity, not desire. We a) do not enough room in our house and b) not enough money to shell out on pipes. I think I have roughly 10ish pipes right now, of which I smoke 8 regularly. It's just enough to give me...
