    I have never done this before but have read up on it, watched you tube videos about it and asked some questions here of those that restore pipes. Here is my first restoration of a stem. It's on my Kaywoodie White and it was a short stem and needed some work. So, I thought I would do this one first. Pics are taken from 2 different cameras.

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate the encouragement. And I also appreciate and am thankful for all of you posting how you all restore yourselves. It made those pictures more likely for success.
