VNS: it looks to me it has a larger Frit 65mm+ maybe, but does look much like yours.
The only differences I could tell from the $500 one on alt was the multi colored frit, and rounded base instead of hex base...
There's $400 fritters on ALT too that have the exact same multicolored bullseye design.
Tis a puzzle.
I know right? Maybe the Jim Dandy is good for an extra $500 lol
Man, I just got the 18'' clear fritted disc, Bought it off the classfields and I've got to say I really enjoy it, excellent rips c:
I still have no fucking idea why the "jim dandy" was 1000, they might have tried to pull a fast one because it was one of the original 65mm discs. but before it even came on ALT a guy i know on instagram had gotten a 65mm red frit from NVS for 550. So yea its weird.
This one VapeNstone looks to me like a 65mm disc, becasue the tube doesn't come back inward near the frit like the vase shaped 50mm frit tubes. I could be wrong but it just looks from the pic like the bigger discs. They have been going for 500 dollars retail now (more for more color/design in the frit I guess) since aqua lab has updated them and they are also in local headshops around.
As far as cleaning the frit I still don't get the people who say it is hard or have any trouble...
if you are having any trouble with abrasives or the frit being clogged, try Heating up your iso for 10 seconds (no more) and throwing it in there... it will dissolve that reclaim/resin so fast your head will spin.
I've had my fritted disc since I started this thread and it's only been clogged to the point that the hit was becoming more draggy one time, and I hadn't cleaned it in like 2-3 weeks.
It takes me less than 2 minutes of shaking to get my frit clean, then a quick simple green rinse/wash to keep it sparkling.
I called Alt yesterday to see the deal. He didn't know, and said he'd call me back, but never heard nothing.
That's really good to know thanks!! I actually got this one in lue of an other orange one I originally bought because there was something terrible wrong with the first one I got. I also got it from NVS(actually that is the pic Josh sent me lol). It does seem to be bigger than my others but I just thought it was the tube vs the mini's you know? If that is the case then that means that I was one of the first to get the new 65mm disc!!! Because I heard mention of it awhile after I actually received this one.
Yea its hard to tell with just the pictures and because DG is creating a lot of different styles now it seems, but from what I've noticed the ones that don't flare back inward toward the disc seem to be the 65mms, but he probably did make some at one point that were straight and still 50mm tubes.
had a DI joint snap off of my DI tube. went to go see the man himself after a few emails back and forth. was gonna get her repaired, but after some conversation, picked up another repaired piece and a quartz domeless nail, for about what i wanted to spend. and considering i got my tube on sale for a little over 2 bills and i usually see the glow in the dark cans going for a little over 3, i broke close to even. wasn't sure i'd like a smaller can, and i don't know if it's just the can or the new nail, but i am loving the hits off this thing. here's a few videos of my new rig...
My newest pickup and first "serious buyers" piece of glass.
13" Straight clear fritted disc
Mad love to this thread... very informative. What do you guys think about the piece? I can see myself buying more DG pieces in the future...
Only seems to be one problem... the bubbles don't stack as high as I thought they would. The stack breaks before entering the "chimney". Anything I'm doing wrong?
Nothing wrong that I can tell
If you want higher stacking, try adding a tiny bit more water, you'll be amazed how much stacking difference a tiny bit of water will make in a fritter.
It looks to me like you've got your water approx 2mm above the disk, try 4ish mm above the disk.
Also, you can adjust the stacking of he piece by how you draw.
Try it in front of a mirror, and just play around with your draw speed and see if you notice it changing.
Sometimes a harder draw actually gets me marginally less stacking with a fritter.
Having said all that, you're already getting the scrubbing effect of the fritter, and very nice diffusion, you don't necessarily "need" more stacking
X2 depending on the water levels sometimes a steady medium draw stacks higher then hard shorter draw.
Those domeless quartz nails are looking sooo nice. And seem to be a perfect fit with the DG's. nice vids Bob!
ive always noticed when hittn the frit a slow upbringing hit makes for maximum wizard stacks to kiss you on the lips, its all about timing it seemed like, then again i had the 18" and had a little more stackin room.
i always overfilled with water, up to where my bridge was at, where do you like to leave it at now puffers?
It depends but normally I am probably about a mm or 2 above the frit. I usually use the DG with my SSV so unless I got a new load in there before its been broken down with stirring the stacking isn't gonna go up the chimney anyway. Dabs it can with the better airflow but I have been using the Lattice for dabbing lately cause it doesn't claim up as quick IME. I love the way it stacks and the fizziness to the perc it's my most fun piece to use IMO.
DG finally made the bent neck mini cans! or I finally saw them. now if only we had a sidecar one i'd be so stoked.
playing on my mini can with my cloud...
What does everyone find works best when cleaning a fritted disk?
Try reading my thread here: http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/pbw-the-chemistry-of-clean.7854/
Keeping the frit clean was one thing that started my search for a better solution
I actually asked you there - I can order either the PBW or the straight A, my only concern is that may effect the DG logos. Do you think I should be concerned?
Sorry, I remember now. When I cleaned my Zob, it definitely degraded the label. Others have been more robust. If you want something that you cant make a mistake with, I had excellent results with Simple Green or just plain ISO.
Hey DG glass owners, thinking about grabing a mini can! How long do things stay in stock on ALT? Do they get batches or is each piece listed as a single? I have this in my cart http://aqualabtechnologies.com/scie...ldstein-mini-can-with-rasta-fritted-disc.html
and want to wait a few days to order after new years. I'm thinking this could replace all my glass as my fuckcombustion lattice is to big for my needs, and my nano direct inject is too small, which would go up in the classifieds after I get it or before. Would these mini cans be good with a solo and dabs? Also I'm curious if they come with an adapter to make it 18 or 14mm female on top. I also noticed on a few videos out there dave goldstein makes a slide that is glass on glass and is a dome at the same time. Where can I find this? I want a small one easy to handle and stash away but not so small its the micro bub, and the rasta seems like the smallest inside dimensions. I've been trying to find videos of the mini cans in use, the video mvapes posted looks great, I think the rasta would be smaller. Mvapes or anyone else with a mini DG can could you post some dab and possibly solo or more cloud milks? Cheers, can't wait to start fritting!
I dont dab but Ill get you some solo and more cloud vids - I am fucking in love with the fritted disk dude! It's like nothing else I've used.
If you're talking about the Female => Female adapter that comes with the LARGER DG pieces, then that it sold on aqualab.
However, I don't think its 18 to 18 female, I think its 18mm to 24mm (so it wouldn't work on your mini for your purposes)
