I was just over on the reserectedpipes blog and came across one the older posts that has some beautifully done refurbs on it. I wanted to share those with the readers here. Great work on this threesome.
I was asked by a friend to see if I could clean his pipes. He had a Savinelli Punto Oro 611, Marmet Bent and a Hardcastle Poker.
The three pipes were in OK condition. They had a lot of cake built up and the stems were oxidized.
I reamed the three bowls with my Castleford reamer beginning with the smallest and moving slowly up to the largest.
All cleaned up pretty well but the stem of the Hardcastle Poker was stuck and I had to put it into the freezer for several days to get it out. When it came out it had cake buldup in the shank that had to come out. Each day I was able to move it a bit more and it came out on the third day.When it came out it had cake buildup in the shank that had to come out.
