To Bend Pipe Stems, you have to remove the stem from the pipe. You need to remove any tar and moisture from the stem with pipe cleaners. After that, Center a clean pipe cleaner in the stem and turn up the exposed ends so that the stem cannot slide off the cleaner. Then, preheat the oven to 270 degrees. You must Place the stem in an oven-safe dish and cover it with a layer of table salt.
You should put the dish in the oven for ten to fifteen minutes. Next, Remove the dish from the oven and pull the stem out of the salt with grasping the pipe cleaner. You can Hold the stem in a dry kitchen towel and bend it into the desired shape. You have to hold it in that shape for two to three minutes or until the stem is cool and no longer pliable. Forth, Remove the pipe cleaner and reattach the stem to the bowl.
If the angle of the stem is not to your liking, you need to replace the pipe cleaner and repeat the process.
