    Hi all,

    I am having a bit of trouble with the cake in my Peterson 307. After smoking a bowl a couple of weeks ago I knocked out the pipe and a large plate of cake came out with the ash. Now more seams to be coming away every time I smoke it. Should I consider reaming it out and starting to build a new cake? This seams a pity as it has a nice 2mm cake, other than in the areas where portions that have become dislodged from the wall.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated,

    Harry

    If It was me I would ream it back and try building a new cake by smoking a good burley. I have a 7 day set of 307s and Ive always broken in my pipes with carter hall and never had a problem building a nice thin cake.

    While that's never any fun to ream it back the upside is you have to smoke more to get it rebuilt! Just trying for a bit of a silver lining...

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the help. I've just reamed it back :(. On the plus side I'd forgotten how large this pipe is, bring on the toby!
