I hope someone can help. I have a Red Dot that has an adjustomatic feature (not stamped as such though) and I can't temove the mouthpeice to clean it. The issue seems to be that the mouthpeice has slipped its thread and turns freely in both directions with out any bite (I've tried putting the pipe in the freezer but it did not work). Does anyone have any advice on how to rectify this issue?

Can you pull on the stem enough to get a very small gap. Use a mini prescision screwdriver to gently pry on the mouthpiece. Might cause the threads to lock up again.

Unfortunately not. The mouthpeice is so small there is very little area for a tight grip. Unless a better idea comes up, I'll have to wait until I'm at the old man's place again and then perhaps pit the mouthpeice in a padded voice and then try lift the pipe by the bowl.
