    I've got a Digby that I use for the odd aromatic here and there. The mass produced stem on it is horrid.
    Can anyone recommend a stem maker who does a good job and is reasonably priced?

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    I have used Iwan Ries a few times. Vulcanite for 20.00. It takes about 4-6 weeks and they have always given me a nicely, if not artisan hand cut stem.

    But I live in Chicago, that might make it tougher for you.

    Mentioned it to Scottie Piersel today..I'm going to let her play with it.

    Georged would be an obvious choice if the pipe were worth more than 40 or 50 bucks =]

    I know Scottie. This should be fun.
