    Hi, I inherited this lighter from my dad - he got it while serving in Viet Nam. I'm wondering if I can return it to functioning condition. When attempting to fill it with the can shown in the picture, gas and liquid leaked out of the top of the lighter - whether valve was fully open or closed...

    As we all know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers. I had a problem yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over. Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. As he was walking away, I called...

    Recently picked up a pair of Rollagas lighters off Craigslist for dirt cheap. One is a perfect gold plated florentine pattern. The other is gold and burgundy lacquer, its a beater and could use some attention but actually works and holds gas. The main things are the roller sticks sometimes...

    Sometimes I'll get a box of cigars and 3or 4 wrappers have come loose. (I read this in a cigar 101 somewhere.) I use Sure Jell ( pectin) and distilled water to make a glue. About half and half of each. Maybe 1/2 teaspoon each. It makes a harmless, odorless and tasteless liquid. I mix it in...

    Well, my vinodor stopped blowing cold air a while ago, just in time for the Virginia summer. My ETC also flaked out about the same time, not sure if that was coincidence or not. I've looked at it a few times and poked in various places with a multimeter, think that the PCB is fine but it's the...

    Does anyone know of a shop or person who does humidor repair in the DC area? I purchased a Montecristo 75th anniversary humidor on eBay. When it arrived it had some damage. The major problems are that one door rubs against the bottom when I open it and there is a crack in the base. If I...

    So I just got one of my pipes from Ebay which seemed like a nice pipe. It had not been cleaned or sanitized but seemed to be smoked maybe once. The stem was super tight and I tried to be careful but the pipe is old. The stem snapped off at the tenon (plastic no metal) Does anyone know where...

    I just bought a replacement vulcanite stem for my freehand pipe. The trouble is that the new stem is straight and the old one was slightliy bent. I want the new stem to be bent as well. I know it needs heat of some sort to be supple enough to bend, but am unsure just how to go about it. I...

    I am the proud new owner of a Ronson Octet Touch Tip Lighter. This is the same lighter Bogart uses in The Maltese Falcon. I took it apart, cleaned it out and got the flint sparking beautifully. The only problem is that the wick is pretty shot. I don't think this is the same wick that current...

    Hey guys, After hanging around here and with some pipe-smoking buddies of mine, I decided to take the plunge. I scored a nice meerschaum-lined billiard with a REALLY nice briar outer bowl for about 15 bucks. The seller tells me that as he was packing it, a chunk of meerschaum lining fell out...

    I bought a used humidor about a year ago which included an electronic humidification system (Cigar Oasis). For about the last month, the fan has been making a loud noise when it runs that sounds like a groan. It is so loud that you can hear it across the room with the humidor closed. The fan...

    I just picked up a Dunhill lighter at a yard sale for $10. Beautiful gold filled case but it does have a problem. The roller wheel will not spin. Has anyone had any experience repairing a Dunhill lighter that can offer some advice and save me a few bucks? I have sent a Dunhill to ARS to...

    Hello, I am looking for a part to repair my Servi-Meerschaum pipe. While I was in Afghanistan I dropped it and broke the plastic joint that connects the stem to the pipe (Mortise/tenon?). I have repaired it a number of times with glue, but eventually it always gives way. I would like to keep...

    Need your opinion to see if I got screwed.... Took my push mower to this cat who works on small engines as a side job / hobby. Somebody in one of the cigar shops I frequent recommended him to me. I am not mechanically inclined, or I would have messed with it myself.... Anyway.... Basically...
