    Dear @UnevenPizza It certainly looks like you've got your afternoon and evening sorted, lol! I've read of @ataxian and others doing concentrates with the Nano in the thread. @ataxian has even got a quote on EV's site testifying to the Nano's versatility in this regard, or did. I can't help you at all my friend, I don't have access but you can trust that I would be right by your side, Nano in hand and ready to experiment! LOL! Yessir @UnevenPizza I do believe that you and I could time-travel via Nanotechnology back to our teen years! I love Mr. Smiley Hashball and his frosty nug, but what pray tell is that gooey goo? I don't even know what it is, but instinctively it just looks perfect for a flower sandwich in a gong-get-it-on! Yummy!
    You would probably vape me under the table but who knows? Maybe not? I'm a wild man! :science: Have fun with all that my man! Enjoy your whatever day is this?! :haw:

    EDIT: Your Nano looks real purty in that pic btw. What beautiful grain.

    Ha! I'm no iron lung ;)

    It's what you dab with! Concentrates I think is the real word. This is really dark so I think it is from hash, but supposedly it's from trim. It's pretty rare here too...like a Oil well in the earth? :)

    After one hit of a tiny sliver of it on the ceramic nail, I thought I messed it up (never used a torch before), because I felt just buzzed as usual. But then I had to go to the store and after 10-15 minutes it hit me :lol: it felt weird to walk, uhm..yeah man. Great stuff.

    I have the Premium Walnut nano! It looks so nice on my desk (which is some Ikea stovetop I got for 30 Bucks instead of over 100.)
    I just need to get a block of Walnut wood somewhere and make a nicer stand for it, the other one I made is being hogged up more and more by the Air 2 and it's assorted accessories.

    Here's two more pics from different angles, back when I got it last year:

    I got the 18mm GonG on Black friday and it's been a breeze to use, little bubbler or huge beaker! NANO DELIVERS!

    I really prefer to use my nano for dabs over the torch, seems kind of risky. Maybe I'll find a cool nail that works with the nano, or some method to heat it .
    OK gotta go, yikes!
    :whoa:

    Nice wood on that nano BTW!

    My experience with a nail has been scary. For me it was too big of a concentrate hit at one time. It threw me into instant panic attack.

    A little glob of oil through the nano makes the experience more, well, civilized :cool: More managable. I can hit a few small hits and walk away for a while. The amount I scoop up is less than a grain of rice. I scoop the little glob on a dabber, then warm the dabber tip over the nano to make the dab less thick, then wipe it on a small piece of organic cotton. I find that warming it a bit allows the dab to completely wipe off the dabber and onto the cotton. I then ball up the cotton and stuff it in my gong. I have also wiped the dab on the side of a small nug and dropped that in the gong. Both work pretty well.

    I also wanted a travel method for hitting some oil out and about. I ended up liking one of those ceramic attys like the Yocan Cerum or the Divine tribe atty here at FC on a istick box mod. I find this to be portable and less intense than a nail.

    I just had a litle dab, let it warm up a little above the nano (set to about 7.5). It immedeately changed it's viscosity (I think that's the term?), but I was afraid it would drip into the nanos heater - it didn't, but holding it closer and/or longer it may have. It still stuck to the dabber (I have a glass one), but much better than non heated one. Thanks for the tip, @BabyFacedFinster!
    I took 2 big rips. The second one made me wonder if I was burning any of the cotton, but it still looks white, only the dab spread as usual.

    I think it's also a good Idea to have a seperate GonG for dabbing, as mine has gotten really messy in only a few days :rofl:

    Edit: I did another one, let it warm up a little more and closer to the heater. I rotated the dabber a bit and it came off the tip clean, right into the cotton. I just need to get some better cotton, but this is definitely a good way to do it! And the nano gets hot fast enough so you don't need to wait all that long.
    Very big hits possible...15-20 seconds, smooth as honey, no coughing.

    Cheers! Have a nice friday everyone!

    Hey there nano'ists I haven't been here ages and blimey the thread is near 1000 pages. I haven't been back mostly because I have been enjoying my nano and vapcaps.

    Anyway my step down US to UK went pop. And I'm out of action. I'm sorry if this has been widely discussed. But what step downs do most people in the UK use? I want one that is as quiet as possible. Can anyone recommend any please?
    Tia

    UPDATE - just found a tacima step down from Amazon, to be delivered on Sunday with prime, I had one of these ages ago and it was solid and didn't buzz. Fingers x'd it will perform the same

    Sounds like you found your sweet spot. :tup:

    I bought a bag of organic cotton balls a while ago. For about 3 bucks I got a bag that must have like 500 hundred cotton balls in it, of which I've probably used 4 or 5 so far. I guarantee that Jeff Sessions won't be in office when I finally run out of cotton balls.

    The NANO I used everyday as a part of the MEDICATING process!

    You can even do DAB'S with ROSIN so cheap.
    I take a rice size of CONCENTRATE roll it in a small piece of cotton and throw it in a GonG.
    FLYNN's or SUPPLEMENT bottle? Clean Cotton basically.

    98% is what mine is?
    72% will due if that is all U have?

    Friday NIGHT on the WEST COAST. (so it's OK to enjoy CANNABIS by product's)

    NANO from EPIC is simple and easy to use.

    We use the word FUNCTION just south of where U live.

    HOLY GRAIL = CIVILIZED

    JOHN GLEESE is so funny!

    Don't be scared?

    YES! There is a severe shortage of Nano Convection Dab videos in this thread! And all of this nano dab talk is making me really want one again right now! Shame they are backordered!

    @Caligula is greatly missed for his incredible e-nano videos! His e-nano concentrate dab vids are awesome.

    @biohacker yeah, those where some great videos! I think they're unlisted though, so to watch them you need to find the page in this thread, good luck ;D

    I found some of BlazingOG's vids, wax on cotton (dry) and wax through water.

    I'm really glad to have my nano, and sort of regret purchasing a nail & torch. I've tried that a few times and it just stunk up my pad, and the hits where pretty lackluster.

    The nano is simpler, and tastes much better. I use at most a rice grain sized glob of wax, let it get soft by rotating it right over the nano's heater, and then wipe it into a bit of cotton.
    The last few times I had a napkin/kleenex under the cotton, to protect my hands from getting all sticky.
    Works much better than trying to get it into the cotton at just room temperature.

    I usually get 2, maybe 3 hits this way (about 10 second inhale, give or take).
    The second hit is usually the largest. I think this is because the wax melts a little and has a larger surface area that gets exposed to the heat, but I could be wrong.

    How has the airflow been? And have you had any leaking/wasting through the cotton? From what I can remember, it was always a delicate balancing act of not using too much cotton as to impede airflow and vaporization of the concentrate, but using enough as to not have any bleed through and run down the gong.

    Convection dabs > Torch/enail dabs ANY DAY! Not many vapes can do it well that's for sure. It's all about that small bowl and direct heat blasting!

    I hate it when it gets nano quiet around here.

    Just hit some Bubba Kush with the nano on ol' Mr. Bubbles. Daddy go sleep now.

    I started blowing my clouds under the lit desk lamp, so the vapor goes up under the lampshade and then puffs out the top like a steam locomotive. :sherlock:

    A nice big Gorilla Glue shatter sandwich in the Nano. Hitting at 6.25 degrees and just using the regular glass stem. I use the glass stem most of the time. Sometimes I will use a j hook as well. I haven’t been using a water tool that often these days.
    I like to keep my shatter in the freezer so it’s not so soft.:2c::leaf:

    I remember @biohacker when a member turned us on 2 this method?
    What was his name?

    I have ROSIN however getting low>?

    I haven't really paid attention to that, I haven't noticed any issues with airflow. I usually use a small piece of q-tip cotton, maybe when I get larger cotton balls it will make a difference?

    I don't think there's much leaking, my bubbler does look a bit dirtier though (not sure if that's solely because of the cotton-dabs.

    I also only use the cotton once per dab, maybe twice. Is there any point in collecting them, like avb? Is there some magical/chemical thing I can do to get another little bit out of it? :lol:

    I'm not sure bro! There are A LOT of members that I miss dearly! Remember @slightlymedicated ? Iron Lungs? :lol: Now it looks like we've lost @herbivore21 as well to the dark side, shame as he was such a brilliant mind....especially when it came to extracts!

    Rosin is the LIFEBLOOD of the sacred plant! I rarely even touch herb anymore. But i'm looking forward to hearing the trichs burst open with the nano! Just kinda wish a "bigger" sized Nano existed when I wanna load up big! :brow:

    Cotton is cotton, I only use organic and have tried the pads and the balls and it's all the same wisps! I also ordered some degummed hemp fiber with my nano so that will be a first and i'm interested in comparing the two materials. As long as you don't overdo the cotton, and don't use the honeycomb screen IMO (way too much restriction) airflow is golden. However, you're restricted/limited to your dab size. The bigger the dab, the more cotton required, the less the airflow.

    Dude sounds like you have it dialed in! Naturally there will be a golden honey oil reclaim that starts to develop rather rapidly, which is more than expected and okay. What I can't tolerate and see is actual drops of oil running down the gong. That's a clear indication of using too much concentrate and/or not enough cotton.

    :rofl:Once vapour production ceases, it's game over. Sometimes you can squeeze out a bit more if you haven't completely extracted it all, just by kind of opening up your cotton ball. If it's all super dry and brown stained you're done. If it's sticky still at all I would sort of expose the area and re-load and go! Probably good for one last hit, but I don't conserve all that much nor keep abv, etc.

    I try not to post too much, I can't help it, my posts sometemes get so long. You know, it all began on a cool autumn afternoon in Madrid, when....
    Just kidding guys, don't worry!

    I just had a spectacular "shab", a hash-dab with my nano on some cotton through my bubbler, that was really nice. 3 big hits, I think that's it but I'm afraid to try just yet :whoa:
    I think I aced the physics exam, so I felt some premature celebration was in order!

    Haha, I think I still have many things I can improve up until I've nailed it!
    I've heard of a nector collector, would that might keep glass cleaner and preserve oil/wax? New to this :shrug:

    I feel like the second hit is the best, the hash is warmed up and can be broken apart after hit #1, and the oil/wax is also soaked into the cotton, and I think that both of those events increase the surface area, and so the hits are yuuuuuge!

    See ya!

    YES!!!! Dude this is what I wanted to read! I've actually replaced flower with the 'shish and dry sifts!

    Is that similar to a drop down? Always somewhat of a solution!

    YES!!! I only have the supreme v3 at the moment but i'll load a chunk and hit it and enjoy the flavour and even fairly decent vape production, but it's after I use a wooden toothpick on it and poke it all around and then you have to be really prepared for that next one! So can't wait to try this in the nano! What temp are you shabbin' at? Love it dude! Trademark that shit!

    Been running it at 8, and the heater almost touching the cotton.

    Should I really be the originator of shabbing, I grant all of you the rights to use it ;)

    (unless anyone turns it into a company or something makes fat stacks, then I want 20% :lol:)

    I think a Dropdown is the same thing, or same principle at least. My metal screen isn't the cleanest, so that probably is catching some spillage.

    I believe @ataxian uses a corn cob holder as his bowl pick. Which is classic cause I think it's shaped like a little corn cob. @ataxian can you verify?

    Greetings :D

    1. Does the e-nano tend to toast the herb close to the heater. I’m looking for a small glass stem plug in that is close to pure convection. I dislike the roasted leaf taste. Especially if it happens before the load is spent.

    2. Since this is a AC vape can the heater be used with other potentiometers rated for say 300W AC? The little dial doesn’t work for me.

    3. Have a great weekend all

    I broke my stiring tool's?

    So I found these CORN COB holders' at a $1 store.

    The NANO I use a bunch!

    After the 1st rip I stir the GonG.

    I get 3 or 4 rip's usually per GonG.

    Young Gun's 2 rip's.

    U can't B scared regardless of your GENERATION?

    I'm going to try stirring after the first hit. I usually wait until the second or third, but I don't know why. The second hit must be a killer.

    IDK how much I can offer in help here. I find I get a slightly roasty flavor sometimes in the second hit and always by the third. That's about the best I get from any vape I've tried so far.

    Each nano is a little different and some run hotter than others. If the heater is up against the herb on mine when I have it at usual cruising temp, which is a 6, then I will get some roasting on the surface of the packed herb but certainly not charring. In fact, my bowls tend to always come up against the herb but this can be avoided with the amount used and the depth of an adjustable screen model. If very little roast flavor is important to you, I bet you could have great results by experimenting with microdoses, varying the screen depth and keeping your unit running on the cooler side.

    I can't help you on the second question. Welcome to the thread. A nano will last you longer than your car will.
