Excited about the carburetor. Nice and unusual. Almost all the lips are destroyed, and don't know how to go about rebuilding or repairing them, or someone who can.

Stems look pretty clean, and no visible burn-out on the rims, and the briar looks extremely good. Ten pipes for twelve bucks. And you're asking how you did? You rascal. Well, like a bandit, I'd say. You just have a better class of antique stores in your neck of the woods. As I've mentioned, when I ask for tobacco pipes around here, they look at me like I've asked for a sawed off shotgun, and this is an old tobacco state. Go figure.

Lol. I know I did well...
I dig around the shops around here, usually it's just chunk or overpriced. But most of the shops have my number now so if pipes come in, they call me.
Stems are all chewed off at the lip, but otherwise are tight and clean. No burnout on the rims, one has a burn in the bottom of the bowl though. All the briar is solid and well cared for, other than they were HEAVILY caked. I've soaked and reamed in ac couple cycles to try and clean them out.
