Last time mine got stuck I tried the hot a cold thing to no avail. So I took my orbital sander with just foam pad and lightly touched the base of the neck. I gave a slight twist and tugging action and finally it came out.

That sounded soooo dirty

Interesting. It's the rough sandblasted edges just wedging themselves together...again, I've also seen it happen because of resin. Glad you got it out! I would have used rubbing alcohol & epsom salt first. I don't know how I fell about "lubing my joints" as far as smoking glass goes..never had any severe issues with GoG...I've heard though that you are barely supposed to place the parts together, don't twist them in or let them fall in hard. Peace.

The joints feel smooth to the touch, when I oiled them and cleaned everything.

I tried alcohol and salt first thing, then ice/heat, then oil.

Then it just finally popped out when I stuck a chopstick down the downstem, wedged it a lil bit and then pulled up. There was just enough pressure to the bottom of the downstem, I suppose, that it just shot out.

The joints were dry as a bone. don't know why? they were well oiled and everything was coming apart just fine earlier in the day.

but it did chip the female joint of the bong a little bit. but it is better than not being able to clean it and refill it.

Ground glass joints? Silicone grease. practically 100% inert, tasteless, designed for this use!

For next time, if oil does not work, try tapping the joints ever so gently (really carefully) on the edge of a counter top or similar. Then try pulling them apart. This is what we do in the lab when flasks and whatnot get stuck together.

Nice tips everyone.I have glass on glass bong deal, and its constantly getting stuck. Usually a firm grip and twist gets it, but a few times ive almost pulled the whole stem out too.I believe my problem is more resin related

I do not see how it happened, but the joints are dry! dry! dry!

I guess they stuck but how? don't make no sense.

oh the bad news is that when the downstem suddenly flew out of the bong, it chipped the female joint at the top....

damn damn ... oh well, it is only a chip, but this is a great bong, I love it so.

This is what you do in a lab? All the labs I've been invited to always have ground glass joint pullers?

What brand glass is this. Sounds like your joints werent ground to the right specs. Ive been using ground joints for such along time an never lube the joints and Ive never had problems with sticking. It really irks me that this happens to you all the time. Do you push the joints in, I just let gravity put them in they are normally plenty tight.

I use the oil off my pimply ass face and forehead. The skin oil works great. I used to use it to seal scratches in my film stripping job years ago. Even film cleaner solvent had a hard time taking off the stuff.

Try it, it's not gross.........

So let me get this straight, are you not supposed to do the twist? that is bad? explains why I broke that one downstem... I always use a LIGHT twist to lock my set up in place, is that not what you are supposed to do?
