Default Replacement Stems for Dr. Grabow's?


Sebastian,

Grabows are definitely worth our attention. Heaven's know most of us
have had one or two. Anyway, yes you can get a stem replaced for one in most
places that does any stem repair. Like Mark Tinsky here on ASP, or I don't
know if Guy from Affordable Pipes does that.
Anyway, the problem is a stem replacement may be more expensive then the
pip-e itself. Try this link though for just a stem you can buy and have
shipped. http://www.pimopipecraft.com/round.html

Sebastian,

You can get one from American Smoking Pipe Company
http://webcatalog.cybersun.com/scripts/webcatalog.dll/Products?AMS~100956278~1~101
but I'm not sure if its worth the trouble for a Dr. Grabows, unless
there's some sentimental reason.

HI Sebastion
The problem with repairing inexpensive pipes is that the repair can
cost as much as a new pipe. A Graybow repiar can even be a little more
expensive than normal as I think they have a metal tenon piece that
needs to be removed from the old stem and put on the new one. So
you re looking at at least $20 to fix when you include shipping .
That moust be close to what a new Graybow would sell for?

Thank you all for your replies. You are all very kind.

I am going to try buying stems from one of the suppliers suggested and
fitting them myself. Humm, I bet that will be fun.

Sincerely,

Sebastian

All is not lost. For a stem replacement, pack it up with a note and
$6 and ship it to:

Sparta Industries
Attn: Dr. Grabow
1731 US HWY 215
Sparta NC 28675

I have two stems replaced (one a few months ago) and their turnaround
is pretty fast (about 2 weeks).

I also have a phone number for them 800-221-4134 which is where I got
these instructions.

Lots pf good advice here. The other tack is to watch ebay, you can
usually get a number of Grabows for low bucks, and eventually build up
an inexpensive collection of stems.

What now saddens me is that I have thrown away so many Grabow and
Medico stems. I will start keeping them from now on to share with the
brothers of the pipe inexpensive.
