Wow. Plumbing lead used for plumbing? Most of what we cut out gets cast into bullets.

Tip of the day......... If you find yourself needing to caulk a horizontal joint and you don't have your running rope handy, Plumbers putty will work in a pinch.

For the record ... there is a such thing as an inside and outside iron to trim that joint ... you tap it along the outer edge and inner edge to do it correctly. My advise next time is to put a spool piece in the hub first and then attache a no hub cplg to it. Not sure how you yarned and caulked under the branch of the tee ...

my 2 cents.

On the record, I dont like to see no hub fittings caulked into hubs. Off the record, it's better than a ty seal.

Nice! At 130 pounds, are you sure you don't need bullets?

It is a rope you soak in in oil and clamp around horizontal cast joints, for pouring. Now ask me what a gate is.

How do you handle a wet joint so you can pour the lead?
