    Thanks for the details. Those are cleaning up nicely so far. Neat to see the transformation of the Peterson. That's going to be a real beauty. This particular style is one of the pipes on my wish list. I'll be browsing the estates on ebay when I get the budget for it.

    This is awesome having the play by play with pics. I've been contemplating an estate pipe as my first and I thought giving it a good restore would further our relationship. I'm waiting with bated breath for the next episode.

    Ugh!

    All this work makes $100 for a new Savinelli seem like a steal.

    Exactly! Most people don't realize how much work goes into making these old pipes smoke-worthy again. Most people don't understand why classic pipes cost so much either. Well the work it takes to even make them function again is why! I have a pipe from the 1950's that took 6 days to restore! 6 DAYS!

    So far the only thing you have done that varies from my routine is the use of isopropyl alcohol for the salt treatment. I typically use Everclear, or more commonly, 151. The benefit is that I can drink the leftovers rather than saving them for sterilizing a wound Great thread! If this finishes as it has started I would almost say it should be made a Sticky.

    Just an amazing thread, I literally know nothing about pipes but I am in awe of your attention to detail and meticulous work.

    Seeing where these pipes started and the night and day difference after each treatment really is amazing even to the untrained eye.

    Looking forward to the next phase and finished product.

    Thank you guys.

    I was helping a couple guys get set up with doing estate pipes, and I remembered when I first started and how frustrated I was not being able to find very thorough or well thought out instructions to help me along the way. I had quite a few f-ups when I first started, so it influenced me to make a stream-lined, step by step instructional in hopes of helping get other people who are interested in the hobby rolling.

    Oh, and yes Tobias, the one down side to using the 91% iso is the inability to drink it, but I do find it helps make my pipe cleaning supplies last a lot longer!

    I have seen a trick elsewhere that should be worth doing. Since the high-proof alcohol and gunk could also mess up a pipe stand, set your pipes during S/A treatment into an open egg carton. The shape of the carton lends well to a stable multi-pipe stand, and it can always be disposed if it gets dirty.
