sanding
Sanding has never worked for me, it actually made it worst. I use a thin aluminium gasket that will conform to both surfaces and stop the leak. Permatex would be my second favourite.

It works if the operation is done correctly.

It's like getting a driver's license without the driver's test.

shoulder/elbow
I know it should work, but the problem when sanding on a flat glass table is that your sanding motion is not parallel to the glass due to the elbow/shoulder joint. I have done rectification on a lathe, and works perfectly. The aluminium gasket is just cheaper and easier to do than the rest of the options. Just my .02 cents!

Facing the flange on a lathe is not a guarantee of flatness either.

I use locktite 545 hydraulic sealer only. Put it around the pipe side and bolt together. Wipe off excess. Let it setup overnight. It will seal it until taken apart. I work in injection molding and this stuff will seal almost any Hyd leak. Hope it helps.Fly it like you stole it!
