Hello fellow leaf lovers, I am in need of some pipe restoring help. I just received a beautiful estate piece I won on ebay, a Digby London made 9438, and she needs some love. There is some heavy tooth marks and figured she could use a new mouth piece. Any recommendations on who or where to send it for some work? Any info will help. Also, if someone can help me post pics I'd love to post some pics. Thanks all

You can edit them with Paint. In the resize option if you set the horizontal size to around 450 pixels they will fit on the page much better.

just thought I would comment and bump this back into play. 

 I have had a few emails with Dave Wolff and he has given me some needed advise. They will be getting my business.

If you want to restore your own, PM me. I can provide some links.

That said, unless you're super handy, don't mind doing a ton of research to do it right and -- most important -- you absolutely love doing it yourself -- let a pro restore your prized estate pipe.

Walker does great work, as does Norwood's Pipe Repair and MKELAW Pipes. Personally, I've had Bob Clark at Clark Pipes in RI repair a pipe for me recently and I'm very pleased with his work (tell him Rich sent you).
