Why should life in sorrow be spent,
When pleasure points to the road,
Wherein each traveler with content,
May throw off the ponderous load?
And instead, in ample measure,
Gather fruits too long left ripe;
What's this world without its pleasure?
What is pleasure but a pipe?
There is a well dedicated thread for E-Pipe Mods pipe and one for the Jazz Pipes but I am wanting to talk about all makers, both custom and production models. While it is a given most pipes will be unique due to the grain in wood or patterns in other materials like acrylics there are companies that follow pretty much set patterns and then you have makers who do each pipe as a custom piece. Right now I have 6 pipes with one on the way. Four of my pipes are semi production pieces and two are unique customs.
Another pipe subject not talked about much is how to convert stems for use as a 510 drip tip. E-Pipe mods uses a universal adapter for their stems, Jazz are more fitted with o-rings like a normal drip tip. There are several ways to convert stems, I have tried a couple methods and the ones I have converted from regular pipe to drip work well. Also I will talk about how I add a bend to straight stems.
Of course there are also the juice delivery devices, cartos, tanks, RBAs, etc. I like both RBAs such as the Spheroid as well as carto tanks. The E-Pipes use an eGo connector, other pipes use a 510. Some pipes are auto but most are manual switches.
Last but far from least is pipe porn...pics of our favorite pipes.
Here are the 6 I have now...
And here is one that is currently being made for me...
