    Oil rig repair

    The mouthpiece of my rig has developed a teeny little chip in the edge. It's just big enough to grab one of the hairs under my lip.
    My only experience with trying to rough out a sharp piece of glass wound up with broken glass and a small cut. Granted, the file on toenail clippers was not the best tool choice. Mia culpa.
    Is there anything homeopathic I can use to rough out the chip? Or is this a job for superfine sandpaper? I know I can hone a knife to razor with blue jeans but I don't think that's a solution.
    And before you funny people get the chance to say it, no, I'm not trimming by beard. Nor am I buying a new rig. Or borrowing, renting, or stealing one. Not going to jury rig something up. I will not quit dabbing.

    Can you put E-6000 or something to fill in glass cracks in the spot? The 'rainforest' has things I never knew existed for weird repairs.

      I'm guessing E-6000 is some sort of epoxy Puglover1 ? It's such a very tiny chip. Half or quarter of a pinhead. Anything I filled it with would stick out like a bump.

      Could you syringe a product into the spot? Would a slight bump be worse then the crack? E-6000 is an adhesive used by crafters but people use it for many things. The cat kneaded his claws on a fake leather chair's arms, I glued the loose 'points' down and filled in the rest with E-6000 with a skewer and smoothed it out with a popsicle stick, I could paint over it and it'd look fine. I fixed a puppy-chewed MCM vinyl bench with it, painted it, nobody would know. Crazy pug ate into the sides of a doggy bed, I filled in missing material with E-6000, glued the corners together, clamped it until dry with binder clips. Lasted pretty long but he knows the weak spots to attack now. There are many sizes: https://www.amazon.com/Bundle-Precis...DING_ADHESIVES

    I've done repairs on glass pieces by using a torch...map gas if it's pyrex. Fixed a crack in a favorite chillum of mine that way. Worked great until it met its final fate landing on a concrete floor

      I wish there was a traveling glass cleaner. Mine are all dirty and I just don't feel like it. I bought a new bong bowl today just to have a clean one. All of my chillums are filthy. Those concrete floors and OP's dropping my ceramic hash bowls never leave my memory. I can't find them for sale anymore.

    How about a drop of fingernail polish, the clear stuff
    or use a ceramic stone to polish out the sharp edges

      Put a drop of super glue on it. while it is still wet, sprinkle baking soda on it. It will set up like a rock.You can add more layers if needed.
      Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

        Another option would be UV activated glue. Put it where you want it, shine the UV light on it, instant curing into solid.

            I install glass rail systems and from time to time they get a chip. This is what I use to make them disappear. 5 minutes and it's gone.

              I'm gong with PLreef on this one, kids. Anything I buy needs to be good for something other than it's intended need. Fillers and such, I have no other need for and can't remember a time when I've needed them.
              Soft sandpaper pads look the trick. I can think around my place and remember other chips that need a workover.

                Joke aside I don't use mine anymore. Not sure why !! Maybe I'm getting too old or too lazy to clean it. Notice Ginger my mood is changing cuz I'm getting ready for the cold and that damn snow in a couple of weeks. If I go down south it won't be until the end of January.

                I missed the whole PPppFFffTTtt thing while I was gone. New or old 'had to be there' joke?

              An earlier version of the song I know. But you get the gist @Farmbuck

              "In the Dock Boggs song - "Down South Blues" he has the lyric

              I'm going to the station
              Going to catch the fastest train that goes
              I'm a-going back South
              Where the weather suits my clothes…"

                  Thinking of what I have on hand. I might take a piece of large diameter shrink wrap for sealing wire and place it over end of mouth piece heat so it shrinks and conforms to shape of end and hope for the best.

                    Puglover1 "PPppFFffTTtt " is from another thread. Maybe one of Farmbuck 's showoff posts of his autos or hash or some nonsense. He got a bit kerfuffled at something. He might have been giving us raspberries.
                    But if you google "PPppFFffTTtt " you get a couple thousand hits.

                      Oh by the way are we still on the subject of "PPppFFffTTtt " shit ? It's been now over a few threads ago or more and we are still talking about it ?? Really ?? Amazing what a PPppFFffTTtt can do !!

                      Pardons mon français!!

                    Oh, heck no, Farmbuck baby! I was filling our pug loving friend in on the brief and intimate history of PPppFFffTTtt in the annals of the GWE Forum. And it's 11 posts in this thread. There is 'Thread Zero' with the original mention of PPppFFffTTtt.
                    You can rebut. You can even retaliate. At what? Was I untrue? Was I unkind, mere yaar?
