Good Morning and Hello ASP. It's been a while since I posted one of my
newbie-ish questions. I was wondering if there is an easy way to tell
the difference between all of the stems out there. I sometimes see
posts which include the stem type. I was wondering how you can tell
what you have for stem material if you didn’t order the pipe new and
it was an estate or something. From what I’ve read, there are stems
made of plastic, acrylic, vulcanite, lucite, ebonite and probably
others I haven’t mentioned.
