Finally home, fed and watered...thanks to Chinese take out. In the den, pup's asleep at my feet, and I've got this no-name Italian pot burning Macanudo. First pipe in seven days, and man, does it taste good.
Posted a pic o' the wrong pipe. Here's the right one.
Brewery supply stores will have them too, they come in different sizes, you probably want the smaller ones.Johnny wrote: ↑Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:09 pmCool! I'll have to hunt for some corks next time I go to the store. Is that something I can grab at Walmart or? I can't say I've ever looked for corks. Thanks Kevin!Kevin Keith wrote: ↑Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:44 pmIt really is just that simple! Cork the chamber, melt the beeswax and submerge it to the stem. I swirl it around in the melted beeswax and then shake off the excess, and wipe/polish the pipe with a soft cloth. Easy!
We have one of those in town too if I come up empty at the other places. Thanks Alex!Thelonious monkfish wrote: ↑Fri Mar 15, 2019 4:28 pm
How soon do you do that to a new pipe and then how often??Kevin Keith wrote: ↑Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:44 pmIt really is just that simple! Cork the chamber, melt the beeswax and submerge it to the stem.

Just home from work and smoking nothing yet. Waiting on the mailman to deliver my new cobs and a sample of SMEER. Jeez, he should’ve been here 2 hours ago.
So, I was wondering why that pot had such an easy draw...I mean, wide open like trying to pull smoke through a barn door or something. Turns out it was a 9mm filter jobbie what I was trying to smoke sans filter. Now I've got this Yorkshire Canadian loaded up with Macanudo, and it's working just right.
