Anyone have any idea who I can send a pipe to for a "Band Repair"?
The pipe is beautiful but when I obtained it, the previous owner did an "epoxy and fishing line" repair repair on a slightly split shank. At a distance, the repair is "passable", but up close, not so much.

This pipe truly deserves some fancy metal work / banding to bring it back to its' full glory.

Any suggestions??? scratch

Had a Askwith with a split shank, sent it to Walker Pipe Repair and Mike did a great job fixing it. Don't know what the wait time is, but well worth it. Excellent work and didn't cost very much. IMHO

Or you could send it to Floyd Norwood and have it done just as good if not better and have it back in less then half the time. Wink

I would love to have "Kaptain Kite" work on the pipe, but I am hesitant in sending pipes to RSA. It may take longer than Walker!!! Razz

Plus, I don't think he is doing much with the site anymore. He is really busy with his job and his recent move.

So, I will look into Norwood, thanks "Cartman"!
