Re: Hot stuffing box...

I also think that 12 rings sounds wrong. Did you see them packing the stuffing box? What problems have they encountered with the new graphite stuffing? It is so much better than traditional flax and you should be able to adjust your stuffing box to run with no drips and remain cool. Personally, I'd ask the yard to re-do it and I'd stand over them while they repack it. Insist on using graphite stuffing though!
