Default Open Heart Surgery

Did some Open Heart surgery a while ago on a Generic cheap little Chinese I had to determine where the rust taste was coming from and this is what I found.

(Please note this pic is not for the faint of heart)



Now imagine smoking through that common chamber and having all that rust going into your lungs.

For the rusty taste to go away, how long do you have to acclimate it?

ughhh, that looks horrible, thank god I take wonderful care of my Mya. Not to say that you didn't take care of it. Our chambers are slightly different but it is still hard to care for a common chamber. I can't wait until I get my KM and some decent brushes for it.
