I have been keeping an eye out for a Corallo 904 for you
Thanks! One popped up on eBay back in 2017. Looked suspicious, and when I asked for better pics, a dark spot on the bottom of the bowl looked like the beginning of a burn out. Even rarer is the 914. I let one of those go last year and am still regretting it.

I got a helluva deal on the 624.
It's funny with the De Luxe Milanos. Several of my 904/9004s are from the line in different finishes and none of them were over $30. I don't think the sellers register their value.

It even came with one of those old dunghills that embers despises!!.......... :D
I don't despise them per se, out of the three I've had, the drilling was horrible and has colored my opinion about their alleged quality.

Lookin' good!
Speaking of stem work, there's a guy out there who makes a De-Oxidizer bath that works wonders, no elbow grease required. I'm not sure if I can plug his website, I'd have to check on the rules, but I don't have any sort of affiliation with him or ulterior motive so I'd hope it would be OK. The guy was really great to do business with, and I like to spread the word on small businesses who sell a product that actually works. I found out about his products through the rebornpipes blog, and those guys clean up A LOT of pipes.

I know the guy you are referring to General, I use his before and after restoration balm. If the de-oxifier works as good as the restoration balm, I am sold, that stuff is magic!

I can't even find shape 914 on a shape chart.
I have some rare shapes in Corolla finish, 130 a tall stack, 512 (2 brass dots) and even one big bent square shanked number that takes balsa filters like a dry system pipe. I will dig them out and check the model numbers if you are interested.

Nice, thank you Embers.

The only thing I have close to that shape is a Milano 920.

Yes, that's the stuff, and it's simply amazing. Hands down the only "solution" that has ever made any difference for me. Really bad oxidation vanishes overnight. I use all of his restoration stuff and they make life so much better when it comes to stems. The balm is nice on briar as well.

That's one of the best parts, the de-oxidizer has left the logos of every one of my stems completely un-changed. I would still be careful around them when polishing the pipe, if you use his Fine and Extra Fine Polishes, as they are almost like a liquid super-fine grain sandpaper magic. As far as the de-oxidation bath, I've left stems in there for 24 hours without any lifting of logos.

Amazing Job Don,pipe looks stunning now, I know these stem related restorations do require some nerves.And how did you manage to get rid off the rim charring residues?
Embers@ Is that BarKeepersFried cleaning abrasive the same stuff we have under the Vim*Trandemark here in EU,white powderlike?

Not sure if it's the same product, but it is a very fine abrasive. After that, I thumb buff with a small amount of toothpaste for a glossy black finish.
