My first thoughts after seeing the steel wool pack in the exhaust pipe, is if this were the 1950's, one might consider Kent Cigarettes Micronite filters in place of the steel wool filter for Castor oil droplets.

It is interesting how I remember my father smoking Kents when I was in elementary school. They came in a cardboard cigarette case from what I remember. I also remember that they had a special filter. Kent stopped making the asbestos filters in 1956 (I was a toddler then, mesothelioma cancer was gaining traction due to the hazardous nature of asbestos), but they (or maybe Tarryton? confused ) replaced the Micronite filter with another style of filter than had little spikes in the small carboard tube compartment. It was supposed to capture the tar in the cigarette.

Being the child scientist, I was periodically disassembling cigarette butts Roddie to study their contents. Laughing

He had emphysema prior to passing in the mid 1990's.

DuBro made an aftermarket muffler that wasn't much of a muffler, looked like an exhaust stack with a coil spring that could be stretched with a set screw for more noise and less back pressure, or less noise and more back pressure. But modeller feedback indicated that the spring once coated with Castor residue would become more restrictive.

I sense that one would have to periodically replace the steel wool pack to prevent that from occurring.

George! I've been meaning to reply to you. I remember "Kent's" very well. The pack was an off-white tone.. with dark-tone (black?) lateral stripes around it. The letters KENT were also a dark-tone. I don't think I ever tried them actually.. and I tried many brands when I first started. "Tareyton" had a charcoal filter.. remember their slogan; I'd rather fight.. than switch..?

The "light" cigarettes were the biggest money-maker for the surviving tobacco companies.. and still are. Enough about that..

I have a DuBro "Mini" Muffleraire.. somewhere. I bought it for my two Fox .15 steel-fins.. just in-case I needed it.
