What pipe is this?


yeah, took pics with my phone sorry for blurry images.

I actually just started smoking about a week ago and its weird i never thought i would like pipe smoking. i bought a starter pipe that just crapped out on me 1st smoke with that gold tobacco. aromatic Cavendish i think something like that. but i picked up this one because i thought it was cool looking and turned out to be an incredible smoke.

still am working on my packing technique so i don't have to relight 3 to 4 times every bowl.

but its got a engraving of a dragon on it, no writing on it. it is a little different because it has a pipe plug which all his other ones doesn't have.

I wasn't really looking to sell it, just seeing if it was like a 1000 dollar pipe that i should leave sitting on shelf.

Also one benefit i have found is that since it takes a long time to smoke a pipe i am smoking less cigaretes, which is a plus for the...

Hello and please bear with me. I'm no expert when it comes to plumbing but I will try to be as detailed as possible.

I'm trying to understand what a pipe does in my basement. The pipe seems to be filled with hot water and drains from upstairs down to the basement. I followed the pipe and it seems to lead to the furnace and water boiler. However from there I'm not sure if it is going to the furnace or water boiler. The pipe in question seems to be interconnected to pipes that lead to both units. I have attached some pictures of the pipes below.

Something else I was told by a plumber awhile ago was that there is another pipe on the opposite side of the wall that does the same thing that leads into the furnace room as well.

1st Picture: The is an image behind the furnace + water boiler. The pipe I'm asking about is located on the far backside on the right hand side coming through the hole.

2nd Picture: shows the pipe connections on top.

A pipe may refer to any of the following:

1. When referring to computer memory, a pipe is a temporary section of computer memory capable of linking two or more computer processors, increasing the overall efficiency of the computer.

2. Alternatively referred to as a vertical bar, the pipe is a computer keyboard key "|" that is two vertical lines above one another and commonly looks like a full vertical line. This symbol is found on the same United States QWERTY keyboard key as the backslash key.

Where is the pipe on the keyboard?

Below is an overview of a computer keyboard with the pipe key highlighted in blue. It is also not uncommon for this key to be directly below the Backspace key and above the Enter key.

Thank you for your expertise, darth finster.

There is certainly a mouthpiece missing. Further examination reveals that the top end of the walnut portion of the stem is threaded both internally and externally, so that a stem would screw in. You can actually see them in my first picture. That would make the larger diameter round walnut piece at the top purely decorative. I think you could also be correct in identifying the bowl as clay, as it does seem heavy for meerschaum. And you are certainly correct that the pipe is related to the tyrolean style.

I'm just a bit skeptical that the bowl is missing. The white part has obviously had tobacco smoked in it. Maybe not a lot, but the rest of the pipe does not show signs of heavy use. The issue remains, how did the cherry stem fit to the bowl. The smaller hole in the white part is about 5/8" while the stem only tapers down to about 3/4". Would there have been a piece between the cherry stem and the bowl? The taper on the...

If it looks like it is made to look like a cig, sounds like a "bat" to me. My bat came in a wood case with a stash cut into it as well. I used to use it for covert smoking. My buddy uses one almost 90% of the time when he smokes, he's very cheap and claims his stash last twice as long when he smokes out of it.

I used mine a lot, but you have to be careful, after using it a few times you run the risk of "slurping the worm" when a long chunk of resin blows into your mouth when you suck too hard. It looks like a little black worm. I had one worm wedge in the gap between my front teeth and stain em so bad it took like ten minutes brushing and half a bottle of mouthwash to get it off. You gotta clean em a...

The primary difference between pipe and tubing is how the size is designated. Pipe is designated by a "Nominal Pipe Size" based upon the ID (inside diameter) of the most common wall thickness. Tubing is designated by the measured OD (outside diameter). For Example: A 3/4 inch iron pipe has an OD of 1.050 inches, while a 3/4 inch steel tube has an OD of 0.75 inches.

The Copper industry calls all cooper tubular products "Tubes" but they designate a "Type". Each type has specified OD and ID dimensions

The size of a tube is determined by it's OD and the thickness. The actual OD of a tube is just the same as it's nominal OD. A certain size of a tube will keep the same OD no mater what the thickness is. It is true for pipe except that the actual OD is larger than it's nominal OD.

For example, for a 1" schedule 5s pipe, the actual OD is 1.315", the thickness is 0.065" and the ID is 1.185". When it's thickness is schedule xxs (0.358"), then it's ID is reduced to...

A pipe union is a secure and semi-permanent connection between two pipes. Most pipe unions consist of two pipes connected together via a third piece. All three are threaded to make a firm connection. While unions are similar to couplings, they are generally easier to take apart and allow pipes of different metals to come together safely. This joining method is common in household and commercial pipe systems.

At first glance, a pipe coupling and a pipe union seem very similar. They both connect two pipes together using a male and female threading system. The main difference between the systems comes from the actual method of joining. Two coupled pipes screw together directly, one inside the other. To take the pipes apart, every pipe that connects to the coupled pipe needs to turn. In a full pipe system, this would mean the entire system needs to come apart to remove one pipe.

With a pipe union, the two pipe ends don’t screw into one another—they each screw into a third...

Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride pipe, more commonly known as “CPVC pipe,” is a plumbing material made of highly durable thermopastic. It is the most commonly used piping in building construction in most parts of the world, outpacing ordinary polyvinyl and metal and copper alternatives. Builders often prefer it because it is very durable, resists corrosion, and has very high temperature thresholds. This makes it safe for supplying water, gas, and oil, and it can also mean energy savings for homeowners and businesses. The biggest drawbacks usually have to do with cracking, and some people also complain that drinking water carried through these pipes has a somewhat plastic taste, particularly when the pipes are new.

How They're Made

These sorts of pipes often look like they’re made of ordinary plastic, but in most cases their manufacturing is somewhat complicated. Chemists usually begin with the polymerization of the vinyl chloride monomer, which is a molecule that forms...

Also see named pipe (or FIFO).

In computer programming, especially in UNIX operating systems, a pipe is a technique for passing information from one program process to another. Unlike other forms of interprocess communication (IPC), a pipe is one-way communication only. Basically, a pipe passes a parameter such as the output of one process to another process which accepts it as input. The system temporarily holds the piped information until it is read by the receiving process.

Using a UNIX shell (the UNIX interactive command interface), a pipe is specified in a command line as a simple vertical bar (|) between two command sequences. The output or result of the first command sequence is used as the input to the second command sequence. The pipe system call is used in a similar way within a program.

For two-way communication between processes, two pipes can be set up, one for each direction. A limitation of pipes for interprocess communication is that the...

Firstly, don't confuse condensation on the pipe with a leak. The cold water inside the pipe makes the pipe cold. The warmer air around the pipe causes condensation to appear - much the way a glass of cold water "sweats" on a table in a warm room.

Next, determine exactly where the source of the leak is. If it is at a soldered or threaded junction of pipes or pipe an tank, you should be able to solve it - if you know how to solder.

You'll have to power off the tank at the circuit breaker (or shut off the gas supply if not an electric type) before doing anything else. Next, shut off the cold water supply to the tank. This valve must be on the supply side of the leak. If the leak is ahead of the valve, you might need to shut off the water to the entire building. Then, open the closest hot water faucet. Finally, lower the water level of the tank by draining the tank from the bottom valve (you'll need to connect a garden hose to it and run the end to the outdoors, shower...

The length must include the distance between the fittings and the extra reach that goes into the fittings. If you are using 1/2-inch pipe, add 7/16 inch per end; and add 1/2 inch per end for 3/4-inch pipe. Therefore, if you plan to use 3/4-inch pipe to join two fittings 36 inches apart, you would need a pipe 37 inches long (adding 1/2 inch on either end to allow for penetration into the fittings).

Pipe threads are tapered -- the threads near the end are smaller in diameter than those toward the middle of the pipe -- so they tighten as they twist into a coupling. Before twisting the pieces together, the external threads should be sealed with joint compound or Teflon pipe tape. This will make the joints rustproof, and it also seals and lubricates them.

Brush the joint compound around the pipe ends, using just enough to fill the...
