After I finish smoking my bent pipe, I let it rest for several hours. Sometimes 24hrs before I remove the mouthpiece to give it all a clean. I've noticed after I have done my cleaning, refitting the mouthpiece is super super hard, using the turning method. Is there something that can be applied to the tenon to reduce the friction when refitting it?
If I let it rest for 3hrs maybe, its a much easier task, removal & refitting is so smooth.
