    Dave, I know you can buy stems in different sizes from the pipe hobby websites, but I don't know how rough they are, or how much work you have to put into them to make them fit....or if they're ready to go right out of the box. I would assume that you would at least have to do a little fine shaping to get the tenon the perfect size.

    Of course, the pipe repair shops like Walker Briar Works can make you a stem. But what fun would that be?

    I know many DIY'ers use acrylic (Lucite) pen blanks (such as the ones on this site- Acrylic Pen Turning Blanks ) to make stems from. But I have no idea as to where to acquire vulcanite blanks from.
