    I see what you mean now.

    I once bought some old Prmius pressure stoves from a Glasgow market. The pumps on them have a leather cup washer on the end to build up pressure in the tank when you pump it. If they haven't been used for years they dry out making it very hard to pull/push the pump/piston handle. It would take a while but the only way to make them shift was to get them moist again. I just used to pour some paraffin down inside the tube and leave it for days. Soon as the leather softened the pump was able to move. Wonder if water would do the trick?

    How long did you let it soak?

    Ahhh...I see said the Blind man.

    After seeing the picture, I understand now what you are talking about. Sorry that a nice looking pipe couldn't be restored...But I agree with you, not worth $80.00 to see if Maybe it will come apart without Coming Apart.
    Take care and check six!
