Late last year I sent a few pipes to Carole at P&W. They did great work. The 1st repair was a pretty fast turn around, the 2nd batch I sent in, took awhile longer. I know she has been sick and I wanted to try a different place, so I chose Walker Briar Works. They are in Mich as am I so I would hope that might help the time frame. Just looked at the schedule there today (which is a nice feature) and it looks like my pipes will be ready in 2 months! Not that i don't have 15 other pipes or so to smoke, but I thought that was a long time. Even my 2nd repair at P&W was less than 8 weeks. For next time... Does anyone know of a place with a "faster" turnaround time? Maybe they are all that way.
