27 years ago I bought a gorgeous Mauro Armellini freehand.
After smoking it a time or two I tried a pipe cleaner.
I got it through the short curved hand cut lucite bit,
but it wouldn't come out.
It eventually broke off on both ends of the bit.
Many years later I soaked it in dish soap and tried off and on for months to blow it out w/ air pressure,
I tried for over a year w/ it soaking the entire year, no luck.
I paid a fortune for this pipe and only got to smoke it that one day in 1984.
Could I heat it, straighten the bit and drill it out? Then bend it back?
I've done this w/ Vulcanite, but I'm afraid I'll damage the lucite if I heat it.
