Duramax Ultra-X Cuts Cleanly

Here's an image of a finished 45 degree cut. This was cut from Duramax Ultra-X. It is important to keep in mind that these Gore style packings can dull a razor blade quickly so rotate in a new blade if the old one is cutting poorly. Razor blades are cheap.

The best article I've seen on the subject of packing gland replacement. The photos are excellent. Thanks for the terrific advice on which-wrench-moves-which-way to either tighten or loosen the packing nut!
