    I mailed out five pipes to Norwood's Pipe Repair last Monday and they're already done and back in my hands. A couple of them I was considering putting up on eBay because I thought I'd never use them, but after getting them back, not a chance. I wish I could smoke them all at the same time. My only problem is that I think its going to take me too long to get to try them all out. I realize its not brain surgery, but the turn around time on my shipment was ridiculous. I figured I would be without them for at least a couple weeks. A brand new stem on the Sav and a general refurb, ream & clean of everything else is just what my little beginner's collection needed.

    Here's a couple pics of the pipes I had cleaned up...

    and the collection as a whole...

    Here's some close ups. I'm not a photographer, so take it easy on me.

    Good to hear. I know in there have been a few people whose experience with Floyd wasn't satisfactory, but I am with you, the turnaround time was quick and at least on my pipe, he did a great job. Your collection looks great!

    I never knew that Smoker's pride produced pipes

    I used Norwoods when I had the shop . His work is always very fine and the selection of material you can choose from is great !

    Some sweet rotation there! Yeah, Floyd & his bride do stellar work. I use them any time I hit something I can't handle...especially with my meers. Smoke them in good health!
