Default stem worries

I have a small glob thing in my stem, looks like a bead of water. And when I tried to brush it out it didn't work. I just got my pipe a week and a half ago and it didn't have that in it until yesterday...or at least I didn't notice it.

You need to buy a decent brush. I'd recommend Justmanbrush.com I have a thread here with exact recommendations about what to get. The crappy brushes that come free with your rig are not usable.

nope. and Hajo, I found your thread and followed the link but there were a whole bunch of different brushes there (most of which met the sizes you mentioned) which specific kinds of brushes were you talking about?

I guess I should reword that. It wasn't a glob, it was a bump thing.

At the www.justmanbrush.com site go to the industrial tube brush collection and get are the following diameter 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" with the 24" or 30" handles for the last two and a short 12" or so handle for the first. The brushes are very high quality and a good value. When you clean mix baking soda and lemon juice until it has a consitancy like toothpaste and just stuff the stuff into you stem scrub the insides with the brush. Run a bunch of hot woater through the stem and repeat as needed.

It's probably a bead of solider - is the stem egyptian or syrian? If it's a KM, then a REAL good cleaning will be in order as some seem to have a grease like substance in them.

If it's solider, then you might be able to knock it out with a long stick, but be careful, it could damage the weld and make a hole, allowing for smoke/air leakage.

I take it is effecting the draw, right?
