    I know that you can turn a ash catcher into a bubbler, but is there any adapter for the reverse?

    I have a MF Mini Bubbler (18mm connections) and a SSFG Travel Beaker (14mm downstem).

    I haven't seen a single piece adapter that would allow you to do it but you could either get a glass blower to make you one or with a couple keck clips you could make one with a 45 degree 14 male to 18 female and 18 to 18, 90 degree adapter.

    Thanks!

    I don't have any experience with glass blowers but I'm interested in that route.

    I'm assuming the 18 to 18 (90 degree adapter) is male to female?

    I guess it really depends on the 45 degree adapter, one of the 2 has to be m to m and one has to be m to f, you might have the easiest time trying to find a 14m to 18m 45 degree adapter and an 18m to 18f 90 degree adapter. For a blower, try either glassblowersdirect.com or Oregon glass blower on ioffer, either of them would be able to make you the adapter you are looking for relatively cheaply with quality glass, just send either one an email through their store with what you want.

    Thanks everyone for the help! I sent Oregon Glass Blower a message.

    I thought I would need more than one 45 degree 14m to 18m adapter?
