Rats!! Look what I did to my David Jones. :o
I dropped it and the shank snapped like a twig.
It was a very sharp, clean break. I lightly painted
both surfaces with wood glue and clamped it for a
couple of days. I can't detect the repair and I
smoked it last night. so far, so good. 8)
I am a bit late getting this up here but wanted to Thank Neal for dropping a nice package on me some time back and letting everyone know that he's making quite a name for himself lately with all of the damage he's been doing. His posts are very informative and he's an asset to this forum...
Well, it seemed pretty straight forward. A tin of Kingfisher in exchange for some Penzance. I didn't realize the Penzance was going to be an 8oz bag, in addition to some other goodies. A big thanks to Pugsley (Warren), who went way above and beyond.
I got hit by friendly fire!
Well... my wife couldn't wait until Father's Day to give my my present:
4 Avo 85th Anniversary 2011 Limited Editions
4 Davidoff Maduros
2 Davidoff Puro d'Oro Eminentes
Kinda suspicious that there's an even number of each type of cigar there and that she likes...

but he didn't stop there....

....or should I say dropped the Smelvidor....
I know Dave is heartbroken..... as am I.
I did get insurance and I am going to buy some more wood and give another carrier a chance to get right..... We're going to build another one!
So I was cleaning my room, and my poor little desktop humidor took a plunge when the sliding shelf it was on unexpectedly tilted. :|
A couple of the seals popped loose, and a corner joint cracked, leaving an 1/8" gap. Hopefully some superglue will fix it.
At least I still have my Bagador.
Bombed Again!!! Thank You, Jenady!!! Wow! I'm going to have to have a WaxingMoonWood Herf one of these days!!! My mailbox is blowing up, fellas! But, I LOVE IT!!!

Well, I broke my Charatan's Make Supreme tonight and I'm miserable. It broke right where the stem goes into the bowl. I don't suppose there a dang thing I can do about it? I don't know how I would pry out the shaft of the stem still inside the shank of the bowl.
What a shame - such a nice...
I have one of the ubiquitous (my big word for the day) Thompson's humi's that lots of folks start out with that has held 65% rh since week one. One of my son's friends evidently messed with it, even carrying it up a flight of stairs while I was at work. Of course I checked the sticks first...
Excuse me if this subject has been bought up before, I did a search and nothing came up so...
I know that Altadis has sued Gran Habano over the 3 Siglos brand name. I also know that CI has been running a closeout on the 3 Siglos brand. A very good deal I might add, mine just arrived today: 20...
When I log into CI now, I no longer see the "free shipping" banner. Just to check, I put something in the cart and went to checkout. Sure enough, there was a $5 shipping charge, even though my bookmark has the "freepm3" tag on it. I tried every other tag from "freepm1" to "freepm9" and no others...
