Re: [IP] Re: Problems of a new pumper

Everyone makes it sound like you HAVE to add extra tape before removing 
the needle but I have never done this - I always just hold the base in 
place, remove the needle and then put the sticky cover-tape on top of 
it....and I have never had any problems...it has NEVER crimped...there 
is no hard and fast rule.....
