I always used LACO SlicTite Teflon paste, It is good on all types of pipe threads
plus it will not hurt any small kids that decide to taste it

Is that what happened to the germans?





It's like I always say, whatever floats your boat, shivers your timbers, and swabs your poop deck.

The real benefit to pipe dope on the ferrule is to stop the nut from gripping the back of the ferrule, dragging it, and causing the surface against the seat to tear.


Brass is a good bit self lubricating, but it's less so without the lead in it.

Who doesn’t know who MacGyver is? Back when I worked at the hack company I worked for that was my nickname. Wasn’t until I started learning from a Master that I realized how appropriate it was. They called me that because I could fix anything....
