    hey pigpen ive been on the torch 12 years or so...hoping for another 12 years or so lol... any of you ever click the link in my signature to my glasspipes gallery? theres a ton of pics not posted here check it out....
     
  13. Definitely have BG.
    I remember early in the thread when it didn't work (took you to photobucket or some shit) and DR had to go and fix it.

    Sick shit always.
     

  14. so 12 years.

    ill assume that like 4 of them was just tinkering around?

    or did you apprentice with someone?

    or self taught, lol i hate barraging you with questions.

    but i have so many.
     
  15. no real tinkering went right into making pipes ... back then color changing wrap and rake was all the rage and it was a pretty simple tech to learn. and you could sell it allllll day long for decent money. i tinkered with other techniques as i learned them till i got them down to the point were i could execute them clean enough to add to the wrap and rake stuff then moved on to those techs till i had a new technique to add to the repertoire and so on. as i got tired of doing some stuff i just faded it out of production... so pretty much self taught with a lil guidance from others on the same journey maybe a lil farther along. by the way that friend i started blowing with was freeek and bearclaw and his brother started in the same town maybe a year if that before us so we were able to bounce ideas and develop a local style of sorts... it made a world of difference to all of us i bet.
     
  16. Wow well i assume you had to spend some dough on the equipment.

    im looking at a nice little torch,

    and have been watching mad teks on how to do pipes 10 different ways.

    i know everyone at every headshop in town and they all take pieces from local blowers.

    and i could probably get a job just making pipes but it would get old quick i assume

    but still a cool job.

    i just want to get into it for me, and if i make money thats cool.
