The Wavy Afzelia burl wood blanks can be ordered from me, and Andy does all the E-Nano making magic!
Talk to the folks at World Nano Headquarters they are known for being very helpful with international order detailing.
Wonderful, I will be in contact with you. Thank you!
Yep. It was about £14 just over 2 years ago for mine... no idea if the cost is the same (most of it's a PO handling charge )...
When we ship to UK we list the value at $29 now so the tax should be minimal.
I will make some fixed glass screens with a deeper bowl to see what the demand is for them. I will post here when they are available on the website which should be later this week.
Ok so im abut to pull the trigger on one of these little beautys and get it shipped to the UK but would love it if there was a discount code flying around. Any ideas guys ?
FCLOVE should give you free shipping..?
I'd be up for a deeper bowl all glass stem/gong too.
Anyone else have this problem, my first nano clicked on where it was supposed to, then i got a replacement because the wood cracked, that one would not click on to 1.5-1.7 and stopped on 10, and hardto run it at a 1.5 higher IE 5.5 on my 1st would be like 7.5 on the 2nd, then i got a warranty upgrade for $65 bux and hits dial dose the same thing clicking on at 1.5-1.7 & am thing it runs similar to the 2nd unit so i am thinking about returning the cord for one that clicks on where it is supposed to so i can use full power when i hit concentrates
Thanks Gray area. I'm a micro doser ie light weight so no need for a big bowl for me!
it takes real talent to break not one but 2 glass stems in a 24 hour period.
Is anyone making stems out of wood or something more durable than glass?
If it is a marking problem of the dial then this. All the cords I have used are somewhat different from each other too as far as the numbers on dial and the actual heat coming off the heater. So I recalibrate the new dials performance points in my head and forget the old points on the old cord.
There is Ed's TnT on the board that makes (or did) really nice wood and metal stems for the Nano. Then there is the old dodge of taking a piece or silicone tubing (as a stem) and inserting it INTO a water tool adapter. I use a .49" OD piece of tubing I got from Amazon in the role. Good Luck
Not a heater problem, and not really cord problem, but a dial problem. Think this is a lot of reason all nanos perform differently. No two dial labels are exactly the same.
Very easy to fix, though! If they haven't changed, you can pop the dial off and put it back on closer to where you would like it. Carefully pry it off. Easiest from the side that sticks out a bit, and might have to use something with two tongs (one on each side of center). Pop it off and check out all the little teeth underneath. Put it back on wherever you want it to be, just make sure you line teeth up. Can make it click on at 0 or 5 if you want. Think 1.5 or so click on is about normal, though. This used to be more common and there is much on it way back in this thread.
EDIT: Forgot to say I wouldn't make a habit of doing this too much. Prying and putting back on is likely to lead to a loose dial if you do it over and over. Pull, set where you like it, and leave it alone. I imagine if you keep playing with it you may have to add some glue further down the road.
As @howie105 said, check out Ed's. FC thread here. He does BEAUTIFUL work!
Unfortunately, or fortunately, however you look at it.
I don't get "high". With my neuro damage, my "thinking side" doesn't get the effects. I've never had the one toke over experience.
I have gotten very clumsy, though, as my body absorbs all the meds, but the heady effect. Yeah, I don't really get that much.
I also leave my ENano on 24/7, and I usually do 3 or 4 stems (3 draws each), in order to get my medicated effects. No head, however. Darn it all.
Right On Thank You i will do that ...
So nice to hear from you @Enchantre! You were a mainstay in this thread when I first got my E-Nano.
In honor of @CarolKing, I ask the nano nation, what's in your nano tonight? I broke out some private reserve Strawberry Headband tonight. It tastes exactly like a wild strawberry that isn't quite ripe yet, not sweet at all but delicious and exotic all the same! I wanted to save more but it was so delicious I only managed to save this puny nug, the flavor has definitely improved with a few months cure:
I broke off half of it and put it in my glass screen stem, no grind necessary. I dropped the temp down to 6 from my normal of 6.5.
Wow, the flavor is out of this world!
It's almost perfume-y it's so aromatic and complex! The nano is still the champ in my opinion when it comes to flavor purity. I've yet to use a vaporizer that allows you to taste the flavor of your flowers or concentrates so pure and untainted.
If any of you ever run across Strawberry Headband I highly recommend it, it is a great strain as far as both flavor and effects!
Keep your hands warm!
I have a great night time strain in my walnut nano, it's an older strain called LA Confidential. One that will put you to sleep. @Vapor_Eyes have a nice evening from the cold Pacific NW. Im ready for spring. 28 degrees outside and approx 385 in my nano? 6.5 on the dial anyway. Just guessing.
That's funny you say that, that's my preferred vaping temp with digital vaporizers, and my preferred setting on the nano dial, 6.5. It's gotta be pretty close to 385° judging by the effects.
So good to see you stop by!!! Been missing you on here. Hope you and hub are doing well!
Looks amazing! Still so jealous of you folks with dispensaries (Med or Rec), but lucked into some killer Bubba Kush this week. 6.5 on the dial through a nice little bubb and WOWSERS!! Shit is knocking my socks off. That's why many more "likes" and not as much typing from me. Hard enough to read, let alone type, with this killer stuff.
That looks so damned good! 24.6%? Very nice! That would probably lay me out after a couple hits.
Think mine is about the same, at least in winter. Usually I'm at about 6.25 (with same nano performance) when it's over 65 in my man cave.
I'm sampling some more private reserve tonight, I'm making room for some new additions. Tonight it's Blueberry. Nothing too exotic, but it does taste like its namesake. It did when I first got it a couple months ago but it still had a bit of that grassy flavor. Now the blueberry flavor is more prominent and complex.
I dropped my E-Nano down to roughly 5.9. This bud is about twice the size of the Strawberry Headband, still not that large but it's all good. This is it for my private reserve for now. I added two more strains to replace these last two.
The nano produces such amazing flavors so easily, it's fun to see how the flavors develop over time with a proper slow cure. I should honestly be curing my flowers even longer for the best results but it's hard to resist the temptation to sample them.
The adjustable screen stem in the back is filled with Bubba Kush.
Bad attempt at a macro shot
Well 2 weeks living with the Nano. First week was so disappointing I almost returned it. Could only 1 or 2 good draws and then barely visible, even if turning up the heat to begin cooking the material. Even then, no vapor production. Second week and it was more like it. Decreased the screen depth and moved the silicone sleeve about .75" beyond the top of the screen. Also learned how much herb was needed to massage 5-7 good draws from the bowl. Removed the extraction tube after every draw Without question the vapor produced by the Nano is much more significant than the Solo and equal to the Mighty, and produces a much heavier stone using at least 50% less material. Two negatives of using it. I have extremely limited hand dexterity, and having to stir the bowl a minimum of 3 times is a hassle and always results with some of the green herb getting pushed out of the bowl. The second negative; i will definitely modify into oblivion in the next week or two; is the Nano's industrial duty power cord from hell. This, without a doubt, is the worst power supply cord I have ever saw. I am a retired industrial mill wright, and this cord is ridiculous. I am going to make a power cord that will be more manageable. I do not understand why they would make the elegant and stylish Nano and than use this off the shelf Chinese made industrial power cord. I like the Nano, not crazy about it, but it uses less material while providing stronger effects. I do not find the flavor to be much better than the Solo or Mighty, except for the first draw from a fresh bowl. I hope the cord modification will provide a much more satisfying experience.
Vapes have various levels of extraction based on so many factors and no matter what vape you use, you'll never get every drop of medicine out of your herb. The nano is a very efficient vape and so I end up stirring once per bowl. I usually get 2-3 good hits, one stir and then 1-2 more hits before I call it good. I would agree that 3 stirs is a hassle but don't see the need for that much stirring with my nano.
The cord can be clumsy at times, but it is a small issue for me. I will say that it has stood the test of time. I've had my nano for several years now. I unwrap and wrap up the cord everyday and it continues to function well and have a snug fit in the unit to this day.
No matter what the cord looks like, it is still a plug-in vs a portable unit like the solo or mighty. In fact, it is a pretty mobile plug-in. You can pick it up, flip it upside down on a bubbler, and to some degree, move around while you use it. Try to do that with an herbilizer or a silver surfer.
Some folks have attached some velcro to the cord and tabletop to prevent the cord from pulling it off the table.
Hope it works out for you. I am crazy about mine.
I pack small amounts so I only get a couple hits on average, which means I'm getting that fresh taste very often. Of course that means you might have to pack more bowls to get the same amount of hits, but I find it so quick and easy to fill and empty the stem that it's not a big deal to me having to reload more often, the better flavor is worth it. I'm a microdoser anyways so I don't consume a lot in one sitting.
It also means you can stir less, or even not at all if you use a very small amount. This would help with spilling when you stir.
It seems to me that you are on the right track, keep adjusting and trying different things and you will hopefully fall fully in love with it like most of us have.
From your usage it sounds like you might want to try temp stepping, as it seems you are after more of a session. Start as low as you like, take a couple hits, bump the heat up a notch, wait a couple minutes and take a couple more hits. Repeat this process until you've reached the desired extraction level.
I prefer to use mine more like a one-hitter and keep it pretty much locked at one temp, 6.5. I load small amounts, take a couple hits, and then empty and repeat if necessary. Usually one bowl is enough for me, sometimes I don't even finish it in one sitting.
The nano I thought had a low learning curve. It did take me a couple of days to tune it in to fit my needs. Try different amounts and temperatures to find your sweet spot.
I like a session with my unit and just stir once or twice until my ABV is a medium to a darker brown color. When the flavor is gone so is my session.
Giving your load a stir a half through just will enhance the flavor. Some of the herb that is closer to the screen gets mixed in. About ten minutes and about 10 draws and my session is over.
I take my stem out if I need to go do something then resume my session later. I will even take the cannabis out of the glass because it will continue to cook a little bit.
A good suggestion from @Vapor_Eyes to gradually increase your temp. I don't feel a need to do that but it might work better for you. I like to tailor my units to fit my needs. I get a lot of good ideas from others and use what works for me.
I have bought some vaporizers that I didn't like. Some are still sitting in a drawer.
The nano fits my needs and more. Love the flavor, ease of use and the easy maintenance. No little parts to loose. No big bamboo inside that breaks if it's dropped. The Nano usually will survive a small fall minus the glass stem if that's attached. Sometimes the stems will survive a fall too. I really like the thick glass stem/mouthpieces.
If you want a session use more material. If there is too hard of a draw that means you need to take some bud out. The butt of your stem is too close to the oven or you've packed your cannabis. The nano requires a loose load, it needs the airflow. You can always lower your screen a bit if need be.
It's a balance between keeping the flavor and not to burn your load too quickly. Start off low heat and work your way up.
A big welcome to all the new nano owners.
Oh man! Looks sooooo TASTY! Nice move on the lower temp to increase flavor. When I do this I save those loads for later and mix them 1/2 &1/2 with fresh at higher temps, or more often save that ABV in a separate container then regular ABV to make some real powerful magic milk.
Cord is a thing, and has been commented on many times through this thread. As someone above said, velcro to table works. I used to just lay mine on its side so it didn't flop around. Finally picked up a nano stand when they were on sale recently. Love it and it works great! FWIW, I think biggest reason for the cord used is to keep price of nano more reasonable. These things can be had for real cheap from China, and nicer cords like you are suggesting would probably increase cost of nano at least 10%. nano prices have been about the same for years, so I personally like the fact that Andy keeps them as reasonable as possible.
With some practice, you should notice a good bit of difference in flavor from the Solo or Mighty. They both rely on conduction, which will give you more of a roasty taste than just letting the meds shine through. Start with the screen depth and dial setting you see most using here (you know how to set screen with E-pik, right?). 6 - 6.5 is usually a good dial setting as a starting point. A little lower, and you should notice more flavor. A little higher and you should see larger, denser clouds.
But, don't let it go at that. Try shifting heat and screen depth in small increments to get to where you want to be. I'll sometimes shift mine a little depending on strain and my mood. I also prefer very small loads to get the most flavor, but you can always load more. Bigger/deeper loads will require more stirring, but less loading. It really depends on what works well for you.
A decent stir tool helps a lot. The E-pik is OK, but I have a few others I like a little better. One is a titanium dab tool that has a small flat end (sort of like a small screwdriver tip). The part of a pencap that acts as a pocket clip works really well, too.
How you nano is of course entirely up to you, but a few tips if hand issues and stirring (and a couple other things) are bothering you. You might find all of it a bit easier if you add a few small bowls or lipped dishes to your vape station. Dump your fresh ground (or chopped or whatever) material into one of them. Use the stem like a straw to suck up just a little bit. Give it a quick tamp and you're good to go. I use the flat end of a golf pencil for tamping, but many things will work - like the other end of that pen cap. You don't want to crush it in there. That will cause uneven roasting, create draw resistance and make more of a mess. Just a quick light tamp to keep it all in place.
After a couple hits, instead of trying to stir and keep all in the stem hold it sideways over your second bowl/dish. Let it fall into the dish and kind of scrape it out with your tool. Give it a shake or a stir and suck it back up into the stem. This is especially helpful if you like deeper loads. You don't finish the top (closest to heater) and still leave unvaped material behind.
And, unless your ABV is coffee colored or darker - save it! All kinds of good stuff can be made from it - from edibles to salves. I've made a few different types of salves/hand lotions that make great gifts. Most of the people who really enjoy them don't even vape or smoke. My mom loves it for her arthritic hands, and starts freaking out and calling me for a refill when her little tub gets low enough to see the bottom!
Wew guys, I have to say, it feels awesome to be back in the saddle, using my e-nano again! I forgot just how lovely it was!
