    A Question re Cake

    i wiped out one of my pipes with a doubled up pipe cleaner for the first time yesterday.It had had 20 bowls through it.
    A piece of the new cake fell out (it was about 4mm round.) up to then I had only been shaking the ash out.
    Should I just leave it to recake or ream back to the wood and start again?

    I'd ream it back, but not necessarily right to the wood - just enough to get it even.
    Work is the curse of the smoking classes

    thanks Jim

    I gently smoothed out the cake on that side and am now sipping 1792 flake in it.
