    For those of you who have used bomb ass butter on the enano, could you get the bottom of the enano feeling smooth?

    Mine feels rough/grainy near the bottom and beeswax doesnt want to melt there since it doesnt get hot, wondering if B.A.B. has a lower melting temp

    Oh, if you mean between the bushing and the outer wood where the bushing connects. I have no clue. I've never had that problem. Sorry.

    @starvingmusician24 Ohhh sounds like you have let that thing get mighty grimy, hmmm I cant say as I have heard anyone else mention that ever happening to them. Sounds like you have been really enjoying that piece and am glad to hear it just not sure how to clean that part of it, hmm.

    Has anyone else ever had this issue before?

    @olivianewtonjohn BAB should work well for this, the mixture is much softer and easier to apply than solid beeswax, I feel that it would work much mo better for this instance. Pls give it a go and let me know how it works for you.

    @NickDlow Thank you as always my man for stepping up and helping out best ya can bro!

    Thanks for the bump here yall, wish everyone the best!

    Been enjoying my Ed's stems now for a long long time, and haven't had any honey oil build-up present a problem at all between bushing and wood stem. I have lightly sanded all my wood stems inside to a smooth finish, and when giving an infrequently needed cleaning, I just use a Q-tip moistened with vodka or Everclear or good whiskey, scour internally, and all becomes fresh as a daisy. If by chance anyone finds honey oil gets lodged between the SS bushing and the wood stem, just heat up the bushing with a flame lighter for a few seconds and then briefly dip n shake vigorously in favorite spirits... towel dry and then air dry under a high speed fan. You will not crack or unduly dry out your wood stems. Of course, for ultimate new look, timeless preservation & finish, use Ed's Bomb Ass Butter all over, inside & out. I very rarely use glass stems and highly favor wood stems for obvious reasons.

    Butter worked much better than beeswax. Maple fiddle back enano looks awesome with the extra shine, happy camper

    @Ed's TnT man I tell you dipping the steel in ever clear and taking a lighter to it to dry it was a great idea. It came out brand new, but you gotta be careful or it could easily get out of hand.:worms: Big thanks to @Snappo for the advice. @Ed's TnT hope all is goin well you way brother. I've kinda been staying away from here trying to save some money up for the holidays haha.

    Hey hey so its been a while since I was round this way as well as many others, geez I have been slammed! So I was doing orders the other day and look at this beauty some lucky customer for the Enano will be getting

    [​IMG]

    Cocobolo is so the shit, I freaking love this species, its so stinking hard and durable I can do anything with it and the colors and BAMB beautiful and every once in a while you get a stunner like this piece with this bright eye in it, say what, DAMN!!!

    Oh and get this, one of my beta testers tells me that all my OG SS bushing Nano/UD type stems work great with the Ti internals of the WS as well, so can yall say "Winner Winner"!

    @starvingmusician24 Glad you found that info to work well for ya and probably a good idea to put some dough back I gotta a feel you going to be giving me some of it really soon so dont spend to much on the holidays or people you care about, screw em they dont care about you like you or I care about you, you need some wood in your life, to hell with them!

    The main OD was great just the spigot that came off it was too small, drilled them out and put a piece of 8mm SS tube in for the Omni Twists I've been doing.
    Again many, many thanks.
