Morning all, my semi-new Phillip Trypis stem started to crack after a couple of months use. Appears to have cracked from the inside out due to pressure from pipe cleaners being inserted. The stem near the button is VERY thin. Any hope for repair or am I screwed and need a new stem made? If I need a new stem, any suggestions on who could shape a similar replacement?

Looks like the stem has become fragile and cracked.

I would send the pipe to Mike Myers at Walker Pipe Repair. He is great and a backlog of only 3 weeks these days.

Used to be several months and well worth the wait.
