The Jobey I picked up off fleabay a few months back has developed a bit of a problem. The bit won't budge.

Luckily it's a straight bit and easily takes a fluffy, so I can still smoke it and keep her clean. Any ideas?

I have an old pipe that the bit was a bear to get off. Asked the guy at local tobacco shop an he told me that if I rub a little pencil lead on it, it would do the trick. It did. Just don't go down so far that you are smoking graphite.:D

Freezer works great for a tight stem. And a little candle wax solved the problem of a stem that after a salt treatment became too tight.
