That's a technical keyword - so that "search by title" can find the thread right off.

a stople is a pipe plug, its a rubber plug with a bolt through it and two wasthers
when you turn the bolt it clamps the washers together to pudh the rubber plug outward (makes plug larger on outside diamiter) to fill and plug the pipe for "HOT" work
but as you have to be able to remove them there only good for flanges and weldlets, and they tend to leak when they get a little old

sglide, one time when I was a pumper we had a casing gas line leak between the secondary header box and the trap farm. After the backhoe dug it up, the welder cold cut the bad section of pipe, about 3'.

The line was oily and of course you know they don't hardly purge anything in the patch. So the head operator cracks the valve so's there's just a whisper of gas to ensure a positive flow of gas. The welder lit off the line with his torch and then proceded to tack up and butt weld the new section of pipe. As soon as the last weld was done, the fire was out.

Having previously worked in plants and refinerys where such a stunt would never be considered, that was my first introduction to welding in the patch.

this is how i put a well head on a re-entery
after hot tapping i light it, let it blow!
then relight it and cut off the cap.
i keep it burning the whole time im doing the wellhead so i know where the fire is

The description of a stople reminds me of a bottle capper for wine or beer bottles.
