Obviously as a Clockmaker you have far too much time on your hands...

Hello all
There's lots of talk on how to get bungs out, but how do you install them again so they'll come out easy next time?
I use a lot of nickle, copper and aluminium based (depending on material of the fittings or bolts or what-ever) 'never seize' on things like bungs and the like.
On pipes 'Stag paste' seems to work well for me.
Cheers Scott

When I replaced my bungs during the restoration I used copper slip, that was twenty eight years ago and I've never needed to remove them so don't know if it worked, remember that when you run the engine you may have to tighten them more, best done whilst running so that you can see the bubbles stop.

You still have the excitement of installing transfers; I found doing the hopper was easier with it laying horizontally.

Thank you martin, another tap has been fitted its a modern garden tap with the thread cut off the spout and polished up, it will have to do for now, or keep it at that ?. transfers will be the very last job.
