    You can replace the HC at https://7thfloorvapes.com/index.php...vers/da-buddha-ground-glass-heater-cover.html
    or...
    you can lift the HC a bit on it's base.

    EDIT:
    Some units do not have clips...
    or the clips (pieces of wire screwed to floor of unit that keep the HC tight)
    If not you can work with shims
    Slide it up on the cylinder it is on, being certain that you have more than 1/2 of cylinder still covered.
    If not secure, you use shims... small slivers of cylindrical pieces that you fit between the HC and the base.
    7th Floor LLC has these.
    If you want a couple, Message me privately and I will take care of it.

    Just found one for 40 bux on Craigslist brand new locally. What should I look for when looking at it?

    look at the factory site and get an idea of what glass should be there and what replacement costs will be if you need to replace lost or damaged glass parts. http://7thfloorvapes.com/index.php/...ts-accessories/vaporizer-parts/da-buddha.html If you get a chance plug it in and see if the heater control works and if it heats up to a nice cherry red glow from there its mostly cosmetic stuff and accessories.

    Heater covers are not always 7th Floors best components. As a matter of fact the only piece of glass that I have replaced on either of my 7Th Floor corded vapes was a heater cover. Upside after I replaced the cover and jiggled the setup a little its been great.

    I've had my dbv for 3 years and i've just combusted with it, the thing is I never go above 12 o clock but it has been developing a wobbly knob. Could this be the problem?

    Either the knob is loose on the rheostat pole or the whole rheostat is loose in the housing, I would guess it's the second one. Should be fairly easy to tighten it back down. Just pull your knob off and tighten the nut holding the rheostat in the housing.

    Edit this video shows what I mean (they show them loosening it around 30s) but I don't think you really need a socket to tighten it on the DBV and do not remove the heater cover or bottom plate, you won't need to totally take it apart for this.

    Thanks, that's certainly solved the wobbly knob. I've not had a chance to try it to see if it's solved the combustion though.

    Yeah I would still recommend these guys. Reliable and very smooth hitting. Friends used to say they wentwer getting high cause the vapor is almost imperceptible, then a few minutes later they are just holding onto the hose all zoned the fuck out.

    Yeah, like a couple others above me have said, it's an excellent vaporizer. It was the second vape I ever purchased, and I've always enjoyed it.

    It was my first vape and I would still have it if not gifted to an ill friend. He passed on but his family still uses it regularly

    I really love to put a little herb in and then add a little wax to enhance. Less mess than just oils and a way more full spectrum vape. I personally love the SSV over all our vapes, just really simple and fucking solid, alhtough I have supers at home because the lights take me to the moon!

    Did a search but couldn't find anything. I sputtered into the wand last neat and heaps of material went onto the ceramic rod and burned up. What's the best way of cleaning the rod? Would an alcohol wipe work fine for this? Thanks

    As long as when it's off and cool you've brushed off any bits still stuck on the ceramic, then just turning it all the way up red-hot for a bit should burn anything else off. That should be all you need to do.

    when the knob gets loose, the zero point can change. pull the knob off and verify that your zero point is where you think it should be

    Hey guys I hate whips but I love my Buddha. Is there any vertical piece I can buy to make my buddha a log vape like the Enano so I can use a straight glass stem?

    LSV heater cover and a Ddave straight stem that using an adjustable basket screen like the E-Nano stem. Think of an 18.8mm log. :tup:

    I have a 18.8mm stem for my Stempod. If it fits my buddha´s actual joint will the LSV heater cover have the same diameter?? In the photos it seems like more rounded almost a semisphere.

    The lsv heater cover has a standard female 18MM connection so yes.......18 is the same as 18.8 and even 19 in the glass world.
    Whatever you do do not break out a micrometer and actually measure it........that will be a whole new conversation.
    The real differences are the length of the grind\taper of the joint but that measurement varies also so...........yeah.
