I have an old Savinelli that I purchased as an estate. The stem is stuck and won't come out unless the pipe is warm and it won't go back in all of the way unless it's warm either. Of course I've read that you're not supposed to take it off when it's warm so I don't know what to do. It there some sort of oil I should use or any recommendations?

Put it in the freezer for 15 min. Usually comes right out.


Cheers,

RR

Those are a pain in the ass, and you can easily break your shank or tenon if it's very tight. You might try rubbing #2 pencil lead all over the tenon. A real graphite pencil would even work better. That usually works for me. It will still be tight, but at least it will kind of "slide."
