Thanks Salmoneye. There are 2 reasons I use the salt. Salt has a tendency to draw water and irritate a wound so I figured it may result in increased sap flows. It also had the potential to slow bacterial growth would seal the wound prematurely.

The 5/8" hole is because my taps are pieces of 1/2" garden hose which has an O.D. of 5/8". I put them on the angle because I thought the sap would "wick" to the tap, both inside and outside surfaces, and flow into the bucket instead of bleeding down the side of the tree. I have never seen a comercial tap. How far into the tree do they extend?
