    Those are the best kinds of estates IMHO

    Stem is done, and this is the best I could do on the stem logo. The stamping was very thin to begin with, so I'm going to stick to that story! Magic eraser, micromesh, Plast-X polish, mineral oil, and chap stick. I should add that a soft flame got rid of the deeper teeth marks.

    Thanks, the 'mix' caught my eye when I was browsing pipes to clean up. This one might just stay on my rack.

    Burley/Virginia

    I'm starting my morning with a cup of coffee and checking emails. Good news fellas, I just won a massive financial settlement in Nigeria. Looks like I am $189m richer this morning!

    The (Un)Official Secret Santa 2019!

    Mine remains wrapped and secure in my underground lair (crawlspace). @bnichols23 you have quite the cellar now!

    Today’s Vintage Estate Pipe- MM Rhodesian Cob

    Interesting find. I wonder if cobs always has the 'disposable' moniker attached to them. This one looks unsmoked so it must have meant something to the original owner.

    Feature Request: Ignore Thread

    Also, it depends how you hold your smartphone/tablet. If I hold it vertically, all the ads/lists on the left disappear. Horizontally, the forum threads get crammed to the right.

    So you want threads you don't want to see to not be listed?

    I just finished cleaning up a Whitehall estate pipe with a metal tube running the length of it: Whitehall Restore

    Stalin's Pipes

    I've seen it other places and not just from him though. Bill, if you consider people disposable, than certainly pipes would be as well.

    Always gentle. The idea is to wipe away the grime from the outer bowl, not scrub it away. I like to let the soap do the work and not the toothbrush.

    I just did magic eraser this time. I'm happy with the results so far. If you look carefully there is still the stem logo on there.
