On Friday, May 1 at The 2009 Chicagoland Int’l Pipe & Tobacciana Show, "Dr. Chuck" Gray gave a 1-hour, 20-minute presentation entitled, "Briar Pipe Repairs: Home Remedies".
The Program for Dr. Chuck’s seminar read as follows; "Dr. Chuck, as he is known, will discuss simple home "Do it Yourself" repairs and remedies you can do by hand, with a minimum of power tools and equipment. He will cover basic cleaning, the use of a retort, briar dent removal, oxidation removal, and waxing. I will have some handouts for the participants. Possible other topics depending on time: proper buffing techniques; nomenclature cleaning; logo cleaning; stem bending; re-staining; tenon tightening; file and sandpaper work; draft and slot opening; and faux amber replacement stems."
For your viewing convenience, we have split the presentation into 18 clips of 5 minutes each. We would like to thank the Chicago Pipe Collector’s Club for the exclusive rights of publishing their videos from the show.
