    Ted's Smoke Shop

    So I just received a group of pipes, and on one, the only markings are Ted's Smoke Shop, and below that is Downey. Has anyone ever come across one of these, or know anything about it?

    A Gothic Medico Pipe Restored.

    Very nice. It always amazes me that some pipes look like they need to go into the fire pit, but once you knock the layer of crud off, and give it a little TLC, they pop back to life.

    Ebay Help

    I don't know how much time you spend looking on eBay, but there is a seller (Deadman's Pipes), and when you see one of his listings, you know it is his by the pictures. Okay, so one day I see a set of pipes done in his picture style as a Buy It Now. Normally his lots are auctions, but I...

    Buying Pipes on Auction for Immediate Resale?

    I've bought Savinellis for $5 a pipe, and the only thing I've had to do was give them a light cleaning. Scored a couple of Dunhills in different lots for around $15. I try to go after lots, and try not to pay more then $10 a pipe. There has been a few times where I've gone as high as $30, but...

    Buying Pipes on Auction for Immediate Resale?

    Many eyes roam eBay, so depending on what platform you bought it on, say Etsy, then if you got it at a decent price, then you might be able to turn a profit. Just remember with the eBay, there are fees on fees, and then a couple of more fees (regardless of what eBay will tell you, plan on 15%)...

    Does Anyone Have Any Info About Joseph Phillips Pipes?

    I have no clue... I couldn't find anything about it, and the only thing I could find was a smooth billiard listed on the E. Hopefully someone out there may have a little info on who or what Joseph Phillips is or was. I am a fan of the Custombilts, so like I said, this one looks too nice not...

    It does have that classic Custombilt look to it. I posted in another forum asking if anyone has any info on Joseph Phillips pipes.

    Does Anyone Have Any Info About Joseph Phillips Pipes?

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) I came across this pipe in a lot I purchased off the internet. At first I thought it was a Custombilt, then saw the Joseph Phillips stamp. I tried looking up the maker, but found nothing. I know there are ALOT of pipes that have that "wormy"...

    Joseph Phillips Pipe - Before and After (Picture HEAVY)

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) Here is a Joseph Phillips estate pipe that I got in and gave a little bit of TLC to. Mainly the stem got cleaned both inside and out. The layer of carbon around had to be removed, and then the rim got a mild sanding. The rest of the body also...

    A Sasieni Seconds

    Wonder if it was by Sisieni made for a specific tobacco shop, and that's why there's no info on it.

    A Sasieni Seconds

    It's a Sasieni seconds, but any idea on which sub-brand??? I've looked everywhere that I could find on the web. TO me the first letter looks like a "P" (my wife said maybe a "T", but the last 3 letters look like "ace". Any ideas???

    Are There any Carey Magic Inch Fans Out There?

    So I have come across this Carey pipe a while back. It has an "A" on the back, so I was guessing it was a grading system. Tried looking up info on it, and couldn't find anything about the grading system Carey used on their pipes. I even contacted them, and sent them some photos of the pipe...

    Question on Using Stains on Pipes

    I'm sure everything I can pronounce is probably no good for you, and everything that I can't pronounce is probably definitely bad for a person

    Question on Using Stains on Pipes

    So I have read that when re-staining a pipe, people always mention using leather dye thinned out with alcohol. I was just wondering why no-one ever mentions using stains like Minwax? Is there something in the Minwax that shouldn't go onto pipes, or is just that the alcohol based dyes set...

    Polyurethane Coating?

    I've read a couple of places that thinning the shellac with some denatured alcohol and applying it would work for a gloss finish.
