    No Dear Hatter- no need for that.

    It was more a general informational note to others looking at the same info.

    Both your searches are spectacular.
    Both you and Moo are aces in my book.

    The link was in my post which came BEFORE (slow) Madhatters post. Read harder.

    I am surprised to see (slow) Madhatter, my rock and my anchor for content-quality posting, cluttering with extraneous pipe-burnout prank reports. I intentionally deleted that paragraph from my post in order to conform to the higher standard M'atter sets. (The prank is included in the copy of the link that I POSTED FIRST, however.)

    Ho hum... the world changes every day. You're slowing down, kid. Clutter. Slow on the draw. Spring fever, maybe.

    Hey you know how it is, reading posts, posting posts, diggin' for info, smoking my pipe, looking for long-lost members, trying to get all the low-down from Cold Case Files, making my next glass of tea and the whole time pushing my dog off the chair arm to answer the telephone................ I live in a multi-taskers universe here.

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    Ok I've got a question here. I just bought a pipe on ebay for $6.50 combined price, and when I got it the bit has a huge chunk missing, there's a crack in the bowl, laquer peeling off, and the cake sucks....looks like someone smoked a lot of crappy aromatics through it. I dunno if I should give them negative feedback and throw it away, or if this "thing' is salvagable.

    I'm a little wary of giving negative feedback, cause I know they'll be sure to return the favor. I guess $6.50 isn't too bad of a loss. But the least they could have done is put this stuff in the description for me.

    Any advice?

    A battered stem can be replaced or possibly repaired with a slip-on softy bit, depending on how bad it is. A cracked bowl usually means it's trash, but I'd have to see it for my own determination.

    Did the eBay pics show a crack or were there any pics at all?

    Do you have a saved link to the eBay auction?

    Any pics of it right now?

    The ebay listing only had one picture of the good side of it. And the description just said "The pipe is in great condition."

    I apologize for my previous description, the crack is higher up from the bowl, and I don't think it will affect performance. It looks like someone tried to glue it, pretty poorly though.

    I would give negative feedback for sure, if the seller wasn't willing to refund my money. They lied about the item. And sellers usually give feedback first
    Would rather have one and not need it, Than need one and not have it.

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    Thats a pretty big lie.
    He described the pipe in complete and total false terms.
    His description is the only thing that led you to buy the pipe.
    Had he been honest, I dont think you would be in this position right now.
    All of that put together means you should SKEWER him.

    I would also tend to shy away from negative feedback until absolutely needed. Try and deal with him one on one first. Email him, demand clarification, perhaps even demand your money back (although $6.50) aint much, its the principle of it.

    He lied though. Fully and completely and had he not, you would have been able to make an informed decision. From that perspective alone you should definitely not feel bad whatsoever regarding any steps you choose to take to try and resolve the matter.

    Thanks for posting the pics.
    I wanna see them cracks.

    Well, Savinelli says you should never smoke their filter pipes without either a filter or the adapter that makes the opening the same size as a non-filter pipe. But in practice I know that many people don't use either. I don't think it will hurt your pipe. At worst it smoke differently because of the wider opening in the stem and it makes it easier for ash to fly up into you mouth.

    I wouldn't worry about it, but if I remember correctly I think Cup o Joes sells both 6mm and 9mm adapters in the filter section of their site if you'd like to get those. I used to smoke my filter pipes without filters but now I've taken a liking to the balsa ones and those.
    Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    Better flow. No damage unless the extra flow causes you to really overheat the pipe. If you have been using the balsa type filters you may get more moisture in the smoke as the balsa isn't there to wick up the wet. Slow down, be aware of the pipe heating and enjoy!!
