During the early 1970's Sears also sold "the pipe" and THE SMOKE through 
their catalog. Don't know if they were ever in the stores, though.
Puff on!

First, Steve,

Chuck Stanion paid Dr Beaty a tremendous compliment in the new P&T ...
when he said the pipes.org site is by far the best pipe site on the

I certainly prefer it over asp's site.  No java, no slow loads, just
info and hyperlinks.

We believe in what you've done, and we'll all get there.

Finally, give my love to Jean...


Consider SMS pipes of Des Moines as a vendor.  High quality, great
service, and they're good people to boot!


Smoke in peace, all, John

Concerning the "Professor's Pipe-Sweetening Technique" - has anyone
actually tried it with success and is there any real danger of cracking
the stem by drying the briar too much?

On the theft issue at pipe shows , I am glad to say I haven't experienced
it, at a show last year I left a high grade Charaten I was smoking on the
somebody 's table while looking at other pipes and proceeded to look at all
the other tables and hour later panic set in and I went to every table
asking for my pipe and to my relief the last table the owner asked what are
you looking for and I described it and he  reached under the table and gave
it back to me with a smile, needless to say I offered him money he refused
so I bought one of his pipes.

Well, the new format might take some getting used to, but I'm finding
that Mozilla handles it fine if I tell it to view the attachments in
line. YMMV.

Re: "Dental" stems

The Peterson Stems are more commonly known as P-Lip stems. I own
several of those. I also have a couple of Savinlli's that have a
similar stem. I'm pretty sure I've seen otherss, but can't remember
brand names right now. If I see them, I'll post them.

Re: Alternate hosting.
I run two lists on Yahoo. Yahoo is convenient. Yahoo is easy to use for
both the list managers and the list participants. 

BUT it comes at a price:
You have to have Yahoo  ID, which means that Yahoo will have your Email
address. If you're careful, you can avoid getting on spam lists. But
you do have to be careful.
Each message carries a heavy payload of advertising dross. Even when I
turned off the "Attachments" features on the group, there's still a
bunch of foo.
The Yahoo Groups search facility, not to put too fine a point on it,
sucks! I'd much prefer to archive my Pipes Digests locally and search
them using my tools. (On that note, will the PD still be archived on

Final note:
Might I suggest that we be very sparing with our quoting of previous
messages? In a digest format, quoted messages might end up showing up
several times if they are replied to by several folks.

[ i'll be editing posts closely.  i'll also be archiving the digests on
pipes.org... ]

So good to see the Digest wafting through the haze of a fine latakia
once again! Thanks to Steve M. for many years of great... er, digesting.
Good luck to Steve B. in his new hosting duties- there's a lot of
catching up to do.

It was a great delight to find a Pipes Digest in my mailbox this evening! 
Thank you, Steve (and many thanks to the other Steve for his many years of 
yeoman service) for resurrecting the list. I have one request, which may be 
problematic at present - don't publish or archive E-mail addresses. I 
already get 300 spam messages a day and the E-mail harvesting robots will 
glom onto this list and increase the already out of control UBM 
(unsolicited bulk mail). However, it is a small price to pay to have the 
Digest vital once more. I would rather junk the spam and get Pipes Digest 
than not get either. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again.

[ i work hard to make sure email addresses cannot be seen outside the
digests themselves.  i don't believe anyone can get the distribution list
or the raw digests.  i sanitize them before putting them up at pipes.org.
i have (so far) left them in the digests so people can respond directly to
posters -- i can remove them in the digests if there is a groundswell of
support for it. ]

Thank GOD, for the return of the PIPE Digest. I hadn't received one in quite
awhile and realizing the amount of time and labor it takes to manage this
list. I thought that it had gone the way much of the really substantive
enjoyments of our fast moving culture has. It warms my heart to see it
again, I feel like I've just renewed an acquaintance with a long lost
friend. Dr. Beaty keep up the good work and my very heart felt thanks to
Steve M. for introducing my to the digest and letting me share my 30+ years
of pipe smoking with other brethren of the Briar.

Subject: pipe refurbishing

First, thanks to both Steve's for their great efforts regarding the
list.  It is wonderful to once again be able to 'bond' with my fellow
pipe smokers.
Now, for the purpose of this post.  I recently came into possession of a
great selection of estate pipes.  Most are Savinelli's and Stanwell's
and all need some tender care to bring them back to life but all are
easily salvageable as none have been smoked more than a dozen times and
not smoked at all for over ten years.  Since they number in the 60
range, it would be too costly for me to take them to a pro to have them
perform the required tasks (you see, this is one physician who is not
rich contrary to what any trial lawyer may tell you!).  So, I am going
to use this opportunity to do something that I have thought about for a
long time and obtain the tools and skills needed to do the work
myself.....................my cardiologist wants me to get a hobby, so
this is just honoring his request!  
So, I am asking the group for some suggestions as to where to get the
equipment, what size polisher is needed, what kind of buffing wheels are
required, what tricks they have in cleaning pipes, etc, etc,
etc...........................................ANY advice would be
greatly appreciated.
Again, thank you Steve and Steve.............................YOU BOTH
Dr. B
