I posted these on another forum and decided to pop them up here as well.
I did this work yesterday, a CI stack added in place of a PVC stack.
The prior HO added to install a laundry in a basement...it's illegal to install PVC under CI here.
I decided to pack & pour a lead/oakum joint at the base rather than cut out the hub and clamp it.
I know many states don't see lead & oakum joints, so I figured it might be cool to show one...

First pic is right before the pour
Second rifght after pouring/packing
Third is the finished stack with C/O on bottom, 4"x2" tee-wye, then a 4"x3" wye at the top for a bath addition upsstairs.

Mark, Great job, first of all!!! I like the pour, very clean.

Now, a question.... there looks like enough verticle pipe out of the slab to grind the hub off and use one of those fancy dancy 4 band no hubs you have there. Or am I wrong, and there was no space, so you had to pour the joint?

By the way, clean work, I like the use of those heavy duty no hub bands, I may be changing my preference. :thumbup:

Spider, no-hub

Robert, there was plenty of room if I were to grind it out, but tight fit for the grinder.

Cool stuff and clean, looks good. The only time I packed and poured a joint was when I took my state test:yes:.
I would like to find a set of packing tools somewhere to have.

If you can't find a yarning and packing iron where you are I can get them here and send em to you, every supply house here stocks them, and those two irons are all you need for most joints.

That is awesome! How much do they run? I may have you do that.

I've poured one lead joint on an old closet flange. Didn't come out nearly as clean as that, but I was extatic to actually get to learn to do that! Nice joint!

Killer,
I need a joint runner to do 4'' thru 6''.
Can't find one here, I do have all the irons and lattle.
If you can help it would be great.
Thank You,
Ken

I had all 3 of them, inside, outside, and yarning iron, but after i took the ky journeyman tests, they became chisels, punches and what-not, lol.

I paid $45 for them. They came from Jones-Stephens. . a good place for plumbing supplies, but you have to be a whole-seller to get anything directly from them.

But yea, that's a dandy looking lead joint, too bad it still needs caulked though, lol, mess the pretty bead up.

Grumpy's Lead/oakum joint

Very nice and clean pour :thumbup:!
L&O joints are not used much in Indiana anymore :no: - it's a lost art.
Glad to see someone still pouring a quality joint - keep up the good work.
