Grats on the Bahriya! The thing is huge and the smoke out of it is great. The pipe tends to cool the smoke about as much as ice water in the vase. I had to shave the vase gasket down a bit but once assembled, it really is a sight to behold.
The brass needed a good polishing and I ended up using a toothbrush / q-tip to really get it cleaned up with all the intricate designs and such. In the end, it looked great.
Aside from you and I, I think only TE has one of these. My photos are posted elsewhere here but I want to see your photos
