    UPDATE PIC TO SHOW WHAT I DID PER REQUEST:



    Now I am super happy using a narrow 14mm stem shoved into the 19mm large diameter internal downstem. It works perfect to quiet the action down and allow for much more controlled lighter drawing pressure. It allows for a much quicker extraction as the air moving over the load is much more controlled and slower to allow it to melt/cook/extract more fully.

    Then add downstem and choice of bowl......I use the same 18 to 14mm adapter for a bowl with the flowerpot and elev8r. Works awesome...I don't want to use any other of my glass pieces now...

    Hey guys, here is the 3rd revision. They added a base to the bottom and lowered the L-joint to be leveled with the ISO chamber. This is going to be the final design and be available this week. I can't comment on the final price, but you guys did a good job of guessing what it will be around. ;) We hope everyone will be able to enjoy this fair-priced Q-Tip jar coming very soon.

    Is the joint connected to the chamber, do you know how many ml it contains?
    normally only take smaller amounts of cleaning solution out of the bottle at a time.

    It looks nice :-)

    It nearly looks so but wouldn't make any sense. But now it looks very stable and well-proportioned

    Got the wire keck clips at grass city someone posted link to recently

    Very happy
    Mostly because They don’t get in the way visually ..the plastic ones are big and clunky by comparison
    I find it sometimes makes it difficult to see the exact bit where you want
    You can adjust them a bit and there’s an easy way to unclip them
    They won’t pop-off and they’re metal strong

    Little bit pricey..£6/$8 a clip ..but defiantly worth it imho

    https://www.grasscity.co.uk/bongclip-stainless-steel.html

    Also I got this 2” circular mini ash catcher..$12
    You can get male/male male/female female/female (...just like people lol)
    https://www.dhgate.com/product/mini...-male/388901066.html#myaccount_history-2-null
    I have f/f ..use it to raise height of the mouth piece connection to bubbler
    ..Sometimes it breaks up the vapor flow coming in the other end
    and it looks a bit like puffs from a steam train
    You can use it either way up and it stands on its own
    ..still playing with it

    Those wire keck clips are fabulous. They fit more securely than acrylic kecks because they wrap around the neck joint more deeply & are more durable. I think the acrylic ones are gonna stretch/bend out of shape after repeated removals that I'm sure they'll loosen. I stocked up on 14, 18, & 29 during their 25%-off 4/20. :tup:

    @Summer

    ..They have 29?

    That’ll stop the inside percolator trying to fallout and break
    when I’m tipping water out of FC mod
    I forget ..and then nearly have a heart attack
    Every time lol

    Ive now got 3 different percolators for it
    tree from thickassglass and
    Replacement shower-head
    and original matrix from Steven

    And the alternative long straight mouthpiece also from Steven

    Thanks for all the links guys

    It’s so easy to clean

    The Ion inner downstem section is pretty wide too....so it would be worth a try for sure.

    If you get an 18mm downstem to use....those will have a slightly larger diameter than the 14/14mm ones do. I have used the larger 18mm ones without an adapter in the main glass.....and it still worked well even after I had to cut off the slits because it did not fit.....(too long).

    So if you have some extra parts or do not mind spending a little on some different downstems....go for it.

    Usually USPS is pretty good to me but this is just ridiculous.

    It's caught in a time loop like the movie Groundhog Day or Doctor Strange. At least it didn't go back to China. Hopefully it arrives safe and sound on its next trip!

    I had that happen not long ago.....package comes into my state and is at the local delivery hub....then the tracking shows it leaves my city and goes to another state......wtf.....lol This happens when the rookie beginner employees of the USPS (usually the first thing new employees do there....I think) separate and redirect packages.....sometimes they are too quick or lazy to make sure they did their jobs well......and this happens.

    But I will say....the USPS is heads and tails above FedEx.......and I also am a commercial shipper for UPS. I use USPS 90+% of the time when I ship and think they do a great job now....especially compared to years past.

    I just got the 7" with 2 SoL percs from CCG. It is now my favorite dab piece, over some fairly high end American glass. The size is amazing, its so tiny for an egg. The piece is literally flawless, I've tried hard to find flaws. Everything is straight as can be, shaping is perfect, very thick base, thick glass all around. The function is like nothing I have ever hit. I never hit an egg before because I prefer to dab out of small pieces and all the eggs were too big, once this one dropped I knew I had to have it. The way it sits in the hand is just spot on. It has zero drag and such a distinct rumble. Great for flavor but still does a nice job of giving a very smooth hit. Its honestly my favorite piece ever and I have been hitting bongs since the mid 80's lol.

    CCG had 3 bowl-shaped fab eggs: 2 SoL ones with smaller cavities & a 2016 stereo matrix perc with a larger cavity:

    https://www.dhgate.com/store/produc...ecinfo=8,103,1#cpspd-1-5|null:103:r1675095167

    It seems that they have now added 2 more recently. A showerhead & a flower of life.

    You'll have to scroll through these for the 5 above:

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYGPVxzOw53283dgrCruJRw/search?query=fab+egg

    I have a different style SoL from CCG & a single matrix fab egg by another vendor & I find them equivalent in draw resistance. I really like the way the FoL perc looks like it functions.

    Well as CCG is gaining a good reputation, like stevenmlz(?), their prices are inching up. Now if tariffs ever apply to glass, there gonna spike even more.

    Yeah, that CCG Fab Egg seems to have gone up quite a bit (since I last looked). The straight Fab too. He who hesitates...

    (Yup, that's me) :shrug:

    There seems to be a lot of fab eggs for sale on DHGate, The only difference I can see is the type of perc. Any thoughts on the best/favoured perc type and why?

    So far i seem to enjoy the seed of life perc over the matrix, but thats for dabs and i guess with vaping herb a big matrix would sometimes come in handy.

    I do wonder, is 9 inches the original height of the Fab Egg?
