  7. When the pot is cold and empty, clean off the 'valve stem' the best you can and chuck the threaded end in a cordless drill. Put a big dollop of valve grinding compound on the other end, and use the drill to polish the internal part of the spout. Repeat until the mating parts are nice and shiny. Mine doesn't drip anymore. Regards, Jackalope
