While I have been repairing estate pipes for awhile now, I find that I am unable to correctly fashion the lip. How does someone fix a pipe lip that has been crushed beyond recognition? Any help would be appreciated. To send it out would defeat my purpose to thoroughly repair an estate pipe.

I'll try, but so far I've been unsuccessful in my photo endeavors. And yes, I have tried every suggestion mentioned on this site.

Kind of a nebulus question without more of what you tried but....
I use black toughened super glue. I sand the area that needs built up and I apply the glue. I carefully over-apply the glue, because I know I'm sanding it down. I let it dry for a day and go to town with files, sandpaper and imagination.

It would work best if you got an imagine acct with somewhere like photobucket. I know that some use the personal forum picture thing, but I've not gotten it to work well for me. Photobucket is free, and only slightly aggravating. But, easy to use.

Coyote- I'm using Imgur on my iPad but when a pop up appears it says rearrange/ delete, or cancel. Still no luck.
