G’day one and all, I’ve got a bit of a problem and would like some advice. I’ve a meer that has a vulcanite shim for the stem to push into that has come loose.

Meerschaum Repair C682f810


The shim goes into the stummel to avoid wear on the meer. I’ve tried PVA glue and let it cure for three days, however the shim came out when I removed the stem for cleaning after the pipe had cooled. Does anyone have any glue suggestions to fix the shim in place that are safe to smoke afterwards?

Thanks

Tim

Gorilla Glue? Super Glue? Maybe some white caulking compound? I don't really know. I'm just thinking out loud.

Tim

Either Jesse Jones (Ocelot55) or riff raff (Al) would be a good one to sound out. No doubt they've dealt with this before.


Cheers,

RR

Tim, it seems to me the issue is the smooth surface of the vulcanite insert. Rough it up with a file or coarse sandpaper that will help. As to "glue" the traditional item used on meers is egg white. It will take some time to dry but should do the trick nicely.

Thanks for the advice Jim, I didn’t know that about egg white. The pipe is on it’s way to Jesse to fix up as I didn’t want bugger the pipe up as it is a grand little smoker.

Cheers
