    After 6+ months of piping now, and becoming a much more regular occurance than occasional novelty, I feel that I'm finally getting the hang of this pipe thing. Now that I somewhat know what I'm doing, I think I'm in a better position to appreciate the subtleties and nuances of the hobby. I've...

    I am taking a crack at building a small steamer trunk style humidor to replace my red and white igloo. I'm going to seal the inside with marine grade polyurethane and going to use spanish cedar trays and boxes to maintaine RH along with KL/Beads. I will send updates, wish me luck.

    Have a question for anyone out there who does pipe repair. . . What do you use to fill superficial cracks on briar bowls? I've read super glue, or gorilla glue, or epoxy. None of those seems like a great idea, considering the crack isn't structurally worrisome. The repair would have to be...

    All this buy talk, stocks are cheap, stocks outperform in the long run (well, that’s the best one) and other crap is sickening. Either all these people are idiots or super geniuses talking the market up so they can sell it short higher. I’m voting they’re idiots and completely blind. Do they...

    I am new to this site, as far as posting goes, but i have been reading up on here for a while now. And I have gotten very useful information from just reading. Anyways I recently decided that I wanted to start a cigar collection so I looked into buying a humidor. I bought the cordoba 125-150...

    so I just received 4 singles from a Danish shop. 3 of them were cracked in the wrapper like I never seen it before - it's damn cold here now, and I guess this is why they cracked - dried out in the dry cold air .. Since I put them in the humidor, the cracks has just gotten worse :( and not a...

    My Diplomat is developing a crack starting on the top of the rim and then running down the side of the cob. I don't think I've smoked it a dozen times. What should I do?

    Anyone ever have a stem crack/break because it was too thin when it was made? I bought this Johs sharktooth sitter and when I got it I thought, wow this stem is really thin. Am I being overly cautious?

    Before you read this, please note that I am laughing to myself as I post this. I am not mad at anybody. Five guys, who shall remain nameless, that are doing cigar reviews for us this month have given me the pleasure of enjoying one of my favorite activities. I enjoy observing human behavior...

    Well as most of you know I received my very first bomb from Navydoc… and it was HUGE! He sent me a humidor, beads, a palio cutter, and some sticks. But the rough nature of the mail up here in the arctic caused a crack in the glass of the humidor. So I got many recommendations from the...

    Curious how you roasters define your crack. Examples... Is start of 2nd crack defined as when the first few beans snap or is it when the flurry of cracks begins? Same for end of a end of 1st crack. Is this when 1st crack is well into tapering off with just a spattering remaining...

    what's the general concensus on how long a roast should take? In theory a very hot roaster could get you beans, externally at least, to something acting like 2nd crack in a few minutes. At the other extreme I suppose you could slow roast at cooler temps and then crank the heat to finish 2nd...

    So my wife makes an off-handed comment about how I would look good smoking a pipe...and I was thinking: "hell no, I'd look like my grandfather (who smoked a pipe for as many years as I could remember till he died....peacefully in his sleep I might add - at the ripe old age of 90...and no tobacco...
