Re: Pipe smoking AmatEur Radio!

I'm one. I went through a period where I owned a lot of old AM transmitters and receivers, but now only have a TS-590 which I love. Just a 40M dipole and 6M j pole up now.

Re: Edgeworth Ready-Rubbed

That is a fun tour to take. Love the tin. It was my first time there and I really enjoyed it. Going to Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge, then Sacramento tomorrow. Alcatraz is pretty sweet.

I've always used a Tsuge, which is a clone of a Dunhill Jr.. This is the one I have currently.

Those are nice. They have them on cigarbid.com occasionally for a good price. I might grab one next time.

Re: Tobacco Platter

I ended up finding this dish at the thrift store. The corners make it easy to pour my spilled tobacco back into the pipe or jar.

Re: New Cob Break In

I just received four new cobs and have tried this method with three of them so far. It charred the shank well and I had no issues with overheating. It probably would have taken three or more bowls to get the char I got doing it this way once.

Re: New Cob Break In

"Oh, no," he answered, "I never smoke a new corn-cob pipe. A new pipe...
