I'd definitely fire those bad boys up and let them do what they were made for

Use Medico filters if you can find them . . . I find the Dr. Grabow filters far too restrictive.

That's a sweet score, those are likely from the early 80s. Another vote to smoke 'em, those stems are all ABS plastic, if you chew it up the factory will replace for cheap. Hell, if they have any old vulcanite stock that fits they'll put that on if you ask. The panelled Duke is nice, must have had some amazing grain if they sliced that much off before rusticating. Bet it smokes flawlessly.

But do continue to buy Dr. Grabow filters, their sale is what keeps the lights on at Sparta. Dead serious.

They need to do a little QC . . . perhaps I need to reach out to them and let them know. In all fairness I have only purchased two boxes and both are the same.

When I first saw it, I thought the same. But the “pre-smoked” makes me think they were presmoked by a machine that was in their old ads.

If someone were to send in a adjustomatic, stinger or blue/yellow/white what have you spade, would they replace it as well if needed? Always wondered that.
