We repair/replace pipe stems, we make modified and enhanced pipe stems, create new stems and a whole lot more in the way of pipe repairs.
And, we make hand crafted pipes mostly in the style of the Danish stacks of 40-50 years ago and variations on themes of the old standards.
Need a new pipe stem? Want a different type of stem or an extension for a cooler smoke? Have a cracked shank on your favorite pipe? Have a gurgler that you can’t fix? We’ve got a complete machine shop so we can do repairs and modifications many others can’t do.
Having a problem getting a Savinelli Dry system replaced or a tapered bit on some military mount? We can fit one up at a reasonable price
Want to fit a custom stem to improve or just spruce up the appearance of a pipe?
How about an extension shank or stem to turn any pipe into a churchwarden for a cooler smoke?
Want a military bit on your pipe so you can pull of the stem while it’s hot? We can install a shank extension and fit a military tapered push bit. You can still switch back to the original anytime by just pulling off the extension and pushing on your original bit.
When you have a catastrophe like breaking a piece out of the shank mortise, or snapping the shank, we can usually repair that. The pipe just needs to have a bit of shank length remaining in order to make a new mortise and add an extension. We can sometimes repair a shank snapped off at the bowl, it depends on how thick the bowl walls are. Consult with us and send a picture.
And of course we do the usual stem replacements to fit a close replacement to the original.
We’ll do Complete Pipe restorations on just about any briar.
If your pipe is gurgling too much, we can often help that by fitting a spacer in the mortise if there’s a gap, and by uniforming and smoothing the draft way.
How to get it done: for basic stem replacement, send the pipe and a check for $26.00 to:
