Well I have gone for it and ordered 2 packs of GFO to sort out a Fleming 55 I am working on, got my fingers crossed that it works, (and gets to the uk in time)
Just wondering has anyone got any experience with the Buck Algonquin PTFE packing because I think thats what Fleming normally go for. spoke to one owner who said his engineer had struggled with it (the Buck Algonquin)

I have come across a thread on in past that had something about breaking in this packing material-running a little loose for a while then tightening otherwise may have problems-if no instructions with product try search on
