Stuck solid !

Well I made it to the boat.... to cut the bloody grass again. I thought it would be nice to light the boatmans stove but the chimney cap is stuck solid. Lesson learnt there, apply a smear of oil before capping it next time.

I have given it a blast of easing oil and will look at it later. Plan B is destruction !

  1. As a fellow biker Nev, you must have a tub of copper grease somewhere. Brunel wouldn't have had any problems with the Great Eastern if he had a tub.

  2. Chris,

    Good idea, I have indeed got some copper grease I brought for the brakes on the Pan. Problem is getting the cover off. I have left it hopefully getting a bit of penetrating oil, if it is still stuck it'll be plan b !

  3. The bikers gospel.

    If it moves and it shouldnt, gafer tape
    If it doesn't move and it should, WD40
    If it still doesn't move, pass the hammer

  4. Sharp clout with the hammer Nev, had to deal with the same problem of both my cousins chimneys on NB Chetwynd
