    Wood Glue is what I've used then a little wood putty (the real stuff not synthetic junk) around the shank where it meets the bowl while glue is tacky, once dry a light file or sandpaper, good as new but better since it's broken in.

    Just fired up CH in the MM Diplomat. I'm about to head downstairs and pour a big mug of hot, black coffee and head out for this Back to School event. I'd be leaving later for it, but I happen to be the only one with a vehicle with room for the tables we're using.

    That happened to my straight MM Pride in the first week. After a bit of research, I learned it happens all the time. It's no cause for alarm.

    The cob guru recommends putting a bead of Elmers around the inside of the hole, and then inserting the shank back into the hole upside down, making a half turn until it's right-side up. This distributes the glue and makes a nice fit. Then insert some glue into the outside gap between the bowl and shank. It dries clear, so no worries.

    Since doing that, my cob hasn't given me any more problems. And it smokes perfectly.

    EDIT: Also it pays to let the pipe cool off a bit before trying to remove the bit. I also hold the pipe by the shank before twisting off the bit, just to be safe.

    I'll never be that "with it"! That is way too much of an acronym for me!

    Good morning. Smoking ERR (thanks again Snake) in a Peter Kent, made in Denmark, Canadian with Columbian Coffee. International start to today. Watching Ocean's 11, the 1960 version with Frank, Dean and Sammy. Peter Lawford and Angie Dickinson play great roles as well.

    Morning y'all!!! It's a damp,cool, foggy mountain morning here. Monster spider has built a web on my front porch during the night. I'll have to dispatch of him after my coffee and Squadron Leader in a Kaywoodie Filter Plus. That is, I will get the wife or son to kill the spider because I become a six year old girl when confronted by spiders. I once shot holes in my bathroom floor killing a wolf spider. True story. Ex wife still gets mad over that. I don't know why. :msty:

    Kentucky club in pipe
    for next few minutes i will be drawing like a fiend trying to get some nicotine out of this tobacco
    tastes wonderful but smoking a filterless pall mall red at the same time helps

It's good to be appreciated!

    Drinking a wake up cup of coffee blonde & sweet before getting ready to head out into the sunroom to smoke a bowl of Squadron Leader in my 2008 Pete St. Paddy's. Looks like a beautiful morning with temps in the upper 70's. Going to open all the windows and watch the hummingbirds at the feeders. I have to take my son into town in a bit for his back to school haircut. Hope everyone out there has a fine fine Saturday!

    Burley in a cob, black coffee and a good, old book. No better way to start a Saturday off IMO.
