Gurgles

Postby Geo3rge » Fri Dec 30, 2016 5:25 pm

Not many of my pipes gurgle, but, surprisingly the ones that do so are Petersons.
I love Peterson pipes and have about eight of them.
The system pipes do not gurgle at all and always give a great smokes. It's the Harps that I have trouble with. I've taken to using Keystones or gauzes, but they take up too much room in the bowl. It's a shame as these Harp pipes have great shapes and designs and are very sturdy, with silver collars and great finishing.
I think it's one of the reasons why any new Petersons I've bought have lately tended to be the system ones only.
Drilling a wider drawhole might help. Anyone done this?

I have three Peterson's. Two are 314 system pipes and as you also say, Steve, no gurgle in those ones. I also have a half-bent somewhere. I don't actually know where it is right now, as I kept getting so much gurgle in it that it went to the back of a drawer. I haven't tried any remedy, really so I'd be very interested to hear if anyone else has.

Cheers,

Jens

Opening the draw will help some but may not take care of it all, try smoking these pipes slower if possible as in a slow smoking contest , if they still gurgle, I would say there's no fixing it. G'Day Sir & G'Luck

Thanks. Yes, somethings won't be fixed, no matter what. Thankfully, it's only with a couple of pipes.
All the best,

Not yet, I'm afraid! You've reminded me! Must get to it and I'll let you know...just need to find that drill bit first.

There's nothing to it bud, I have probably drilled out some where around a couple hundred pipes as I drill every pipe out that I get & I have refurbished a lot of pipes and sold on ebay , I also own over 100 at moment & there all drilled out. Just take your time go slow, if your that bothered about it, buy yourself a longer bit and make a wood handle for it and drill your pipe out by hand that way you can't hardly make a mistake, so long as you make sure your bit is actually in the air way hole you will do fine. G'Day Sir
