    Hey strange if you have a nose warmer or bulldog in there keep me in mind please. Been looking for a short pipe with a fat bowl. 

    I just restored/freshened up my pipes and let me recommend the Decatur products. They work great and are easy to use.

    Looking forward to it :)

    So here is the collection that mvw67 was kind enough to pass along. I was able to date a couple of the easy ones and it looks like this lot is from the 50's thru the 70's.

    More info to come as I can dig it up.

    Good stuff! Old stuff is some of the best stuff. I am a bit of a dork, but am constantly amazed what one can find going to the antique shops. The better half and I are in to antiques; love the fact that someone else had a treasure for 50-60-90 years and kept it in like new shape.

    Hey Senor @onestrangeone how is the project going? Anything interesting or cool in the estate collection?

     Progress report.

    I was/am surprised at the amount of info that I have been able to find. These are all from the mid/late 40's thru the early 60's and have been VERY well used, I would rate the condition of the set as 'fair' 

    These are not a collectors set of pipes, this is a hardcore smokers collection, that being said there are some very interesting and unique pipes in the set. I will get some pic's up as I go. It turns out that restoring estate pipes is a very time consuming process and I was wrong to think that I would be able to do 4-5 at a time.

     The stems have been the biggest challenge so far (50-70 years of oxidation is a **** too remove) 

    I have six that are close to ready, I am trying different techniques on the finish but it looks like strait wax is going to be the end result.   

  • What a collection, I have to say I'm jealous.

    That is awesome.  Looking forward to watching this project.  Have been enjoying a pipe more and more so time to invest in a better pipe.  Looking forward to hearing more about the collection.

    My Dad had that one at the bottom left of the shot.  I recognize a couple others as ones I've had in the past.  Good deal.
