Pipe stem sizes

Post by Bloodhound »

Most stems are hand fitted, I know some makers prefer a certain bore for the stem to fit into the stumal, but to order a #4 stem for a Comoy Billiard isn't a thing. Makers will make a stem according to what you like as far as material, shape and such and then fit it to the pipe. Last year I had 2 stems repaired and 3 stems replaced, I had the carver use vulcanite on one and leucite on the other 2.

I need a stem for one of my Peterson St Patrick's day pipes. Who did you use?

I sent 3 to to https://briarville.com/ He was in New Mexico, but he moved mid repair, and ended up doing my pipes and sending them back to me from Durango, CO...but then he moved again and now he is in Georgia. I was pleased with the 2 repairs and the one replacement he did...his prices were about the same as Walker Pipes had posted.

I know lots of folks who used Walker Pipes...but I had heard that he was retiring...but then sweet&sour contacted him and he was still taking work, so he must have changed his mind...he did some beautiful work on sweet&sour's pipe...and now I see on the web site that Mike at Walker Pipes IS hanging it up...as of July he is no longer taking any work...s&s snuck his pipe repair under the wire.....
