    I have always wanted to disassemble my Aromed and remove a section of the flexible steel tube.
    It would be replaced with a much softer and flexible cable that would just hang.
    In my mind this would be perfect and no glass would be broken.
    I cracked my herb holder a while ago trying to get a good seal...
    With it hanging loose and easier to manipulate over the herb chamber would make like so much easier!

    Another project for one day...

    Funny, "Verdampftnochmal" have a modificated Aromed in their showroom in Berlin. It's older than 10y and looks pretty steampunk. They dissassembled the swan-neck and changed it to a "metal thing" made by "Bob the builder-" with a lot of lab tech metal holder parts and joints. You can exacetly position the light bulb as you like it. Really nice construction.
    Have to take some pics the next time I'll be there.

    Was thinking of your statement @Hogni and agree about how the weak part of the setup is the less-than-modular setup of the Aromed herb stem. I suddenly had visions of an Aromed herb chamber that just ended in a 14mm or 18mm GonG, without the long stem. Or even better yet, an 18mm or 14mm female end, so you don't end up having a super-heated male end getting stuck in your female WP GonG. This would give the Aromed so many more options!

    I watch my buddy set his stem and then pull the light down to mate them (and IMO putting strain on his WP stem), but without the long stem you could attach the herb chamber to the light (mate em by pushing the full chamber "up") and then adjust the neck to rest the chamber on the WP GonG.

    My buddy went to the LHC and got a WP to fit the Aromed stem, and while it works well and tastes great he ended up with an 18" smokers WP with dual chambers (inline perc, UFO perc) because that is the only sort of WP that has a long enough stem to seat the Aromed herb stem. Bring your deep breathing lungs! A standard 18/14mm GonG Aromed herb chamber would allow the use of all the small rigs that vapers prefer!

    Great idea, just need to find a glassblower that would make them for us!

    Another idea that i use with my Aromed is this:
    I remove the small bubbler and have it sitting next to the main unit.
    Now adjust the light so that when you lift up the main unit and place it over the herb holder, the main unit will sit flat on the desk and seal the herb holder.
    It's light enough to do this with ease!

    A glassblower can simply properly cut the stem of your aromed chamber, that's what I did for using it with my magic flight orbiter

    As I said before. Just cut it or break it at the tapper and you will have much more fun again with the Aro. Fuck the hassle with finding bad/ugly, but stem length suited wt, fuck the hassle with the OG setup and that tube thing all the time.
    But you also need another sized bowl for better performance generally. So the important part to join the sweet sides of the Aro is a new bowl with adjustable/detachable stem (nearly as the old Aro mod by Ed) and a bowl shaped for more effective use and may be a nice microsdosing insert for it.
    I'm pretty sure these changes would elevate the Aro to a new level.

    Would someone please remove their screw cap light bulb cover and take a picture of the little wire temperature sensor? I was changing my light bulb and accidentally moved the sensor in mine. I'm not sure how it's supposed to be positioned.

    Thank You...

    Heya, I'll really try hard to remember to do this tonight I keep forgetting. My phone camera is a bit iffy but I'll do my best.
    Exactly the same thing happened to me, btw, and I just gently nudged the sensor away from the bulb with a wooden toothpick. Although it's obviously not been properly recalibrated, it now works as well as I can remember it ever did, maybe better. So well, in fact, I'm no longer looking for another desktop (did have my eye on the Evo), as between the Aromed and Elev8r I'm covered. I do love using the Aromed whilst reclining on the sofa watching telly :)

    I'm not sure why I'm even reading my favorite threads on FC right now since I'm on a T-break. One month and doing great. The first ten days of THC withdrawal where horrible... But the Aromed will definitely be my first sesh when I start back up.

    @Vital Hey man, here's the shot. It's likely that the distance you need to move the sensor is so small as to not be possible to see from this image. Be really careful if you do decide to nudge it because it feels VERY delicate:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I opted to DIY it, rather than send it back to Frank/research&experience, but he will do this for you if you want (I checked a month or so ago).

    If you're wondering what the silicone gasket is, that's a mod I did. It's thin enough to not touch the hot bulb cover or raise the heater too far from the screen. I have the dimensions in mm if needed. Not sure if it actually creates a better seal or not but the unit works like it's bionic since I did that and moved the sensor the same day.
    Gimme a shout back if need be. :)

    @Vital @Mushroomturtle

    I hesitated to post a pic of mine since i move mine around for general testing...
    If i move mine out to Mushroom's position, my Aromed runs very cool!
    I need to have the silver crimped position below the top of the lamp holder, only the tip of the thermocouple protrudes.

    My method is to just test it @Vital ! Load a bowl and see how it hits. If it is colder, lower the probe and vice versa! Just make sure it is nice and straight.

    Love the gasket idea! Mine is so old if i slightly turn the glass too much it unthreads... Very gentle!

    Yeah I think it's just the angle the photo was taken, the silver crimped bit does actually sit very slightly below the lamp holder same as you say.

    Exactly, experiment. Only thing I did differently was pushing it away from the bulb, rather than further down into the holder. As expected that would have a similar effect, but I expect your way is probably better than mine in terms of damage risk.

    I can't remember exactly when I bought mine, either 2004 or 2007 one of the two:lol:

    After I "fixed" mine I realised I didn't really need it anymore so I never bought it. It remains a mystery to us all :hmm:
    Though I did buy the Incredibowl Redibowl that @Vital mentioned above, hasn't arrived yet, to experiment with glass pieces other than the original Magic Glass mini-bubbler. Relatively inexpensive for £15 :tup:

    Glad I could help...Let me know how you like it! :tup:



    Have any of you heard of these Teflon joint sleeves that prevent joint lock. If not check out this video. He talks about them about 2 minutes into the video.
    Click to play YouTube Video
    If you insert one into the water filter it should eliminate the worry of joint lock. It would be nice not having to use silicon grease, bees wax, or dish-washing liquid all of the time. I found this website that sells them, but I'm sure there are plenty of others. http://www.capitolscientific.com/lab-supplies/Kontes-PTFE-Reusable-Joint-Sleeves

    You mentioned that you were going to post a few video's showing your setup. When you have a chance, would do that please? I am trying to visualize what you are describing, but can't quite wrap my head around it. :hmm:

    Thank You!

    Hello everybody
    Has any of you tried to use the aromed for decaboxylation?
    I have an old aromed that I would like to use for decaboxylation of small amounts while traveling with my caravan. I could get a small electric oven but to my experience they will not produce a stabile temperature so I figured I could use the old vape instead.
    Do you guys think it is essential to use airflow to even out the temperature? Or could I just put the material inside and hit 240 f°?
    My aromed is currently in another country so I cant test this it out myself and would really like to hear what you think of this use of the aromed.

    You would need some type of airflow. Unless...Hmmm :hmm: Just had a thought...What if you point the goose neck up, (pointing the light bulb toward the ceiling) it would act like a stove-top burner. Perhaps you could use the glass Aroma Top. If you use the herbholder I would imagine that you would have to put a screen on top after filling it, if you don't want things falling into the light bulb. :2c:

    Turning it upside down could be a really good idea thank you! But thinking the aromatop might only give a steady temperature to a very little amount of material and this made me think. Maybe a test tube with an insert is a better solution. I could possible isolate the test tube to prevent temperature loss.

    Could someone give me the inner diameter of the bulb cover? It would be very usefull as I intend to shop some test tubes and my aromed is 800 km. away.

    I am sorry :doh: It is not the bulb cover I need the inner diameter for. It is the inner diameter of the white thing that connects to the herb holder.
