I was just wondering if people could help me start learning how to restore pipes properly. I'm a poor college student, so I don't really have a lot of money to spend on brand new pipes. I bought a basket pipe that I've been using for a couple years now, but I'd really like to get some nicer estate pipes from sites like craigslist and ebay. The only problem is that I have no idea how to restore them to a beautiful and smokeable state.
If someone could please point me in the right direction for a list of tools, methods to restore, how to start restoring for a beginning pipe collector or any knowledge of the sort, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
