I've read to always remove and put on turning clockwise, if that helps.

Also I've used a dry lubricant on stems that get stuck. I'll have to check what it is when I'm back in the office.

This is what I use on sticky stems. Make sure to shake it up really well before using.

My Vauen sticks real bad, i tried a dab of liquid wrench dry lube on it but it didnt help but a few times. Im afraid of breaking the stem off. It smokes wet i have to take it apart 4 or 5 times a bowl. I need to get a filter for it...

Probably need more than a dab. I coated the tenon of my problem pipes with this stuff. Your Vauen takes 9mm filters right? PM me your address and I'll send you some.

I wonder without killing it, if i took some 1000-2000 grit sand paper to it. Problem is i dont want to put the stem in all the way because of it and it looks goofy.
