Hi Mike,
that idea with the pin sounds great. I‘m for sure going to try this out!
I can't take credit for that one. I read about either on here from Al (ssjones) or Don (donjgiles), or maybe even the reborn pipes blog. Either way it works to repair minor tooth denting.

Do you follow the dad's pipes blog? I think he is related to the reborn pipes guy. Dad's pipes is in southern Ontario somewhere

I had a bad thing happen once...

I was heating up a stem by the button because of a bite mark, the vulcanite was thin and I poked a hole straight through the stem with a sharp pointy thing! Don't do that.

Since that moment, when I want to remove bites, dents, or reshape a stem I ALWAYS slide a pipe cleaner completely through the stem and leave it there before I take the flame to the stem.
2 cents...
Don

Not bad for a first try I think. Maybe another little sanding before I get the oxidation off.

No, but I looked at his blog now. Very nice work in there, thanks for the additional resource!
