    I just got it out by loosening it up with a bit of alcohol first and then pulling it out.

    I thought it had to be something like this as it is an old Estate pipe I just got.

    Unknown stinger/cooling system hindering cleaning process.

    Usually I take out stingers but this one is inside the bowl and not attached to the stem as usual, I also cannot get a pipe cleaner inside the metal tube to clean the inside of it as there seems to be no hole or a very little one at the end of the tube shown, I was wondering if any of you have...

    Pipe mud muting flavour ?

    I got a bunch of old Estate pipes and the bowl of this particular one seemed very uneven (almost like it had some dremel tool marks) and in an effort to get the bowl smooth on the inside as to get an even cake and such I decided on pipe mud, I hope it was the right approach.

    Pipe mud muting flavour ?

    I have recently coated a pipe with pipe mud but the flavours of the tobacco feels muted although I have only smoked it twice, Will the flavours become full after some cake develops or does the problem lie somewhere else ?

    Yellowish marks and how to get rid of them?

    Yeah it really is a struggle to get anything to do with pipes around here but at least here in the eastern cape we still have Wesley's as a tobacconist which is where I go for house blends and such but the owner passed some time ago, I think it is now run by his brother who is also quite...

    Replacement stems ?

    I was wondering if anybody knows where to get a hold of any replacement stems, namely for this one here but I have a few I need stems for and some pipes with broken stems that I perhaps need to fix or use as a point of reference in buying new ones but I really wish to fix this one up here and it...

    Yellowish marks and how to get rid of them?

    Well I do enjoy learning about pipes and doing things myself helps me with this and in my country and where I live it would be a real challenge to get someone who repairs pipes so I might as well learn to do so myself and I quite enjoy the learning process so you have to start somewhere I suppose

    Yellowish marks and how to get rid of them?

    Also may I ask what you would recommend I use for waxing as pipe supplies are quite scarce where I live and is waxing and polishing the same thing or are they different steps ? I would think you wax and then polish but do I then use different substances for polishing and waxing?

    Yellowish marks and how to get rid of them?

    A bit of an odd question I feel but I bought this old pipe and was wondering if anybody knows what the Yellowish marks are and how to get rid of them? Edit: Shortened title, and put original title in the body. Only thing I didn't touch is the pic. --Didimauw
