Kim – looking at your very nice projects, I would assume that you have
some two-part epoxy on hand. . . .
you could turn a piece of wood to fit 1/8” loosely inside the mouthpiece,
plug the hole in the stem of the mouthpiece with tape, use a “mold release”
with whatever you feel comfortable with, and pour in some epoxy and insert
the wood plug until the epoxy cures. that way, there is less epoxy used
and practically eliminates the exothermic heat that could jam everything up.
also provides more “hand hold” to twist it loose after the cure.
(seal the wood first to prevent it from soaking up the epoxy).
