    Tinnitus Relief

    Working in an automotive repair shop for close to 40yrs now, and after about 20yrs I started getting a mix of crickets and TV off the air crackly white noise when I'm in what should be a quiet space. I sleep with a fan and the TV on.

    In that case, it would be 23100 etc... If I make it to 2123, I'll cross that bridge when I get there. 56 completed pipes in 2023, hope to hit 75 in 2024

    Spectacular Doug Finlay XL Bamboo Belge

    On this particular one, the bamboo is significantly large enough to do a delrin tenon that has grooves cut in 2 directions and epoxied in. It would take a quite a bit of torque to break it loose and I'd reckon it'd snap the briar or bamboo first.

    Replacement Silver Band on Meerschaum

    Thanks for the nod my way @AroEnglish, but I'll have to defer to the others listed. My silver work is geared more towards pipes I'm making, not repair work.

    Question about Febings dye

    Are you lumping setting/sealing the stain together? Depending on what your process is, ie... are you going to do a 2 color contrast? You will need to seal the stain then sand back partially to reveal unstained wood in the amount you'd like, then apply 2nd stain, set and then seal again...
