I have an inexpensive Molina pot that has moisture coming out from between the stummel and stem.   I am smoking good old CH, so there really isn't any excessive moisture from the tobacco.  The pipe has been smoking great until now.  What gives?


Well crap, I put this in the wrong place. confused

Cobs tend to do this frequently. If it doesn't bother you, there's really no harm. If it does, try some beeswax on the tenon.

Uh, I've never had a problem with any of my cobs. This is a briar. But anyway, I'll check with my bees! Razz

oftenly that happens because there is a crack on the shank. sometimes a repair with a band solve the problem.
Check the price for the repair and the price of your used pipe to see if it is worth to take the chance. Not always it is worth unless it is a special pipe for you.  good luck.

Typical Molina pipes go for $30 - $80 or thereabouts.  I’ve seen quotes for adding a band on a typical stem at $20 - $30.

If I had a $30 Molina I’d think twice about putting a $30 band on it.

I’d sure go for the beeswax thing first.

Thanks for the tips. I'll try the beeswax and see if that helps. No sense on spending money on a cheap pipe. I am surprised how well this pipe smokes.
