Default Stem got stuck

Has anyone ever had this problem? I was going to smoke some Fumari and I had a hell of a time getting the stem out of the vase. Finally did, smoked my mango (wow great taste) and went to clean it and again had a really hard time. Anybody have any advice?

Twist and pull, also make sure its dry. I notice when its wet it takes ages to pull out.

I have a KM copper pearl that has a super tight fit too.

I sit on the ground, place the vase between my legs and then rock the stem back and forth and/or side to side, as trying to pull it straight up will get you next to nowhere.



Consider it a blessing in disguise- a tight fitting stem/grommet is a lot better than something that's not airtight.

i get the same problem with my km pharonie. putting it in is hard enough, pulling it out gets even tougher. i put the base between my feet and use my toes and the inner sides of my feet to hold it down while i twist and pull the stem up... it works for me.. lol

have you maintained your rig by oil/ lubing it up? If it's metal on metal it can seize. If it's metal on glass, it should also help. I sure hope nobody is using their feet to hold the glass base in place, the act could break it and cut your feet up!

Yeah i had a hard time getting mine out then i just started using E.V.O.O. (extra virgin olive oil) on the grammet and now its slips out no problem. A little tip i picked up in metal shop class.

The first time i didn't it took me about 20 mins to get it out of the base.
