    Yes it is odd -- I haven't gotten any emails in two days. I miss them...

    ". . . The old "plumbing" is removed from the shank and replaced with a new sleeve that is bored to align the different draft angles between stem and shank. The stem is Blueprinted and fitted with the appropriate tenon. The result is a world class smoke that will accept a pipe cleaner without disassambly."

    EDIT: Here's a story of the process: https://rebornpipes.wordpress.com/20...ed-meerschaum/

    If I'm getting a new stem on this meer, what might look best?



    Should I have it banded? Should I go basis black? Dark brown? What color would be most fitting, considering the pipe will color more in the future? Decisions, decisions...

    Ah. Got it.

    You're strictly aces with us though, Robert. Personal worth and strength of constitution have little to do with smoking a pipe, so it's encouraging to see you making an effort. Not quite as brave, but equally worthless, I'm going to water down this Happy Bogie with some KK.

    I hate the night shift at the hotel.

    I must say that a beer and a bowl of Billy Budd sitting on the deck overlooking the river makes it bearable.

    May I suggest Tortoise Shell? I guess, in this day and age, it would have to be faux tortoise shell.

    Enjoying a bowl of Ennerdale Flake in a Hardcastle Select # 567. Great smoke. Still not receiving any Puff emails though. Are you getting any Terry? Wonder what is going on.

    Funny, I didn't get any for the past week, but they resumed yesterday. On my first bowl of FMOTT for the month, and the night.

    I wonder why this is happening to so many of us. I feel lonely without my Puff emails -- especially the pipe ones. But at least I still have my pipes and plenty of fine tobacco! And plenty of fine cigars too. Though pipes seem to be dominating at this point! Life is Good!

    Band in a brass color with a black band. It will bring out the color of the bowl as it continues its journey.

    Some EMP in the Bjarne is fitting the bill. Again.

    That's a great looking meer, PG. Is that the one you re-waxed a few times? I think so. Kept your how-to in my files.

    Oooo, Dan and Mark have been such busy beavers this month! Notice you both were ranked in the Top 10 of Most Puffing and TAD Suffering on TabaccoCellar. Spent the day updating my cellar, but still have some more to go.

    Terry, I would add the band to your Meer. See the line midway between the end of the shank and your thumb? Looks like it is just begging for a band. Tortoushell stem and brass band were mentioned would might look nice.

    Having a bowl of FMOTT in a great smoking estate Vauen lovat. Had a bowl in a 3/4 bent Thoroughbred, which I love, but YUCK! I preferred Vulcanite stems to start, but have found that they impart a bitter taste as they oxidize. I am just unable to perform adequate maintenence to prevent it, and suspect the inside of the stems need polishing.

    Agreed - a few very workable suggestions, so thanks all.

    I believe I can only request the stem be banded, not the shank. Perhaps a dark brown, or tortoise shell, stem with a brass inlay serving as a band? We'll see what ol' Ronni can whip up.
