Upside joint is takes a lot of practice. You take the runner and well run it up the pipe clamp it and pack oakum in the spots where the lead will spill out then the lead needs to be really really hot so it does'nt set up on the way down. I like to preheat the pipe too in this area.
I think it would be fun for some of the older plumbers to do a Lead Pour teach in.It could be a Sat. Sun. get togeather. We could do a West vs East coast Pour in, with pictures JOEY could SEE . I would fly South for that , I like ICE CREAM , and tool flee markets . Maybe try that K-60. Maybe GLKEARNS [ Greg] will fly down with Me.
