When I realized, that there were no Log Vaporizers from the US available in the European shops (due to missing EU CE certification and the connected costs, I guess), and also not willing to take the risk of playing Russian roulette with customs, which might or might not confiscate an imported $ 300,- + electrical device, simply due to that missing certification, I decided to build my own Log. Not being so great at building things from scratch (also missing most necessary tools and a workbench), I rather looked for ready made parts, that I could utilize easily for my own device. So I came up with "Da Cork Bomber" Ok. It's a bit of a cheat. It utilizes the 36W/12V (90°C - 230°C) XL Injector from the Herborizer XL, which is basically a ready made ss heating element, set into a double glass tube, with a small handle and a 24mm glass joint and a cable. Got it as a spare part and also forwent getting the fitting 12V adapter and temp controller, as Herborizer charged a stunning 40,-€ for the former and 60,-€ for the latter. Got a fitting 12V/3A/36W adapter and LED dimmer from Amazon instead... for 6,95€ a pop. Works fine. Missing a lathe, I sat the XL injector into two small maple wood beakers I also found on Amazon. 2,95€ a pop. Sawed off the bottom of the top one (bad idea. Should have just drilled a hole into it and used to stabilize the heating tube) and set one on top of the other. Made a small recess in the bottom beaker to accommodate the glas handle of the injector, which also now holds the heater in place. On the opposite side I just fitted a piece of cork between wall and heating tube for additional stability (works, but is only a temporary solution, as its naturally degrading with the heat. Guess a fitting star washer will solve this little problem fast. Just have to get one). Drilled holes into the bottom part beaker for the cable and one into the bottom for airflow. Next problem was the 24mm glass joint. Next to useless for connecting to the usual 14/18mm standard glass joints of the herbal glass world. Only works with the fitting 24mm bowl (36,- EUR) from Herborizer etc. Or you need lab glass. After experimenting first with a small 18/14mm glass adapter, which basically added a 18mm male joint to the heater but would only fit with tons of Kapton tape, holding it in place, I decided on using a 15/12mm copper coupling, which would fit into the inside of the 24mm heater glass joint on one side an take a 12mm ss tube in the other side, which would now become the heater cover, to which you connect stems and WPAs. Created some bumps on the edge of the 15mm part, so that there is a slight friction fit with the glass now and it won't fall out when using inverted. Sits a bit loose, though, when the log is cold. Once it's heated up, the metal expands a bit and it sits snug. The 12mm ss heater cover has a ~10mm inner diameter and after filing it down from the inside a little bit, now accommodates 10mm (outer diameter OD) tips within the tip of the cover itself. Stainless steel tips and titan tips like from a Vapcap, or glass or... you name it. Bigger stems (from 12/13mm ID upwards) with movable screens go over the heating cover and simply seal with the high temp silicone o-ring, that's stuck onto it. Once this make shift log was functional, I gave it a new coat of 3mm cork (held in place by four small clips shot from a stapler). Protects well against the heat and looks more classy than I ever thought, choosing this budget solution. Also did a small 'Cork Stand' to hold the stems, WPAs, Vapcaps and cleaning stuff. Really pricy. 0,99 € Also light as a feather, for inverted use on glass. Just don't let it sit in this position for too long, as the budget solution materials put some restriction on use. I have it running for 8 to 12 hours every day, usually idling at 150-180° (around 6 o'clock on the dial) and only crank it up to 10-11 o'clock (200-210°C) when really in use. No problems so far To make long things short... had the little bugger in use for weeks now and it works friggin' well . Can't see, how to get more efficiently medicated by an Underdog or Woodscent or Nano. But ok. The 'Da Cork Bomber' is foremost just a glorified stand for the Herborizer XL injector. But that's what logs are anyway. Stands for heating elements. It's the variety of different stems, WPAs and other adapter solutions that you apply, that makes the fat lady sing! Some logs are works of art. Mine's not. But I love it anyway. Whole device cost me about 130,- EUR, with the XL Injector being by far the most pricy part. As I had so much fun creating this little bugger, I decided to do another version with a custom made heating element, utilizing the halogen heater concept of the MUSA Wooden Vape, which just might be the first really classy (walnut) log vape on this side of the pond. And... it's really also a work of art! My thanks to it's creator for making this possible.
