    Hi everyone!
    The E-Nano and the Sticky Brick Junior are on their way, and i have some questions.
    I am going to buy a Matrix Sidecar https://www.dhgate.com/product/mobius-glass-19cm-tall-mobius-matrix-sidecar/390413782.html and i wonder if
    1- there's nothing wrong with that model in combination with my two vaporisers?
    2- i could find the SB Junior WPA (U Joint water piece adapter) for cheaper than around 50€ (with shipping from US and European sites) on a site like DHgate. I looked for it but didn't find a 14mm U joint (a lot of 10mm).
    2- (newbie here so please be indulgent ;) ) this bong has a 14.4mm joint size, would it be ok with a 14mm adapter bought with the E-Nano or would i need an adapter for that too? or a 14mm male actually fits in a 14.4mm female and it's the norm and only my ignorance makes me doubt?

    Sorry if some questions are obvious for a lot of old timers but i read a lot on FC and didn't find any answer for those ones.
    Cheers!

    IMO basing ones glass on the 18.8mm base is just more adaptable. Its easy to get an 18.8mm bubbler to accept a 14.4mm WPA going the other way not really as good an option.

    hummm... good point, thank you!
    i absolutely didn't think about that!
    i was orientated towards the 14mm because i bought the 14mm adapter with the E-Nano.

    I have a sbj and have ordered the same waterpiece as you- i was worried about the u bend adapter not bringing the brick far out enough from the central joint. But not having the piece or the adapter yet i cant say if they actually do fit together!

    Edit- someone somewhere mentioned the best/cheapest way to hook up the SBj to a piece is with a whip over the mouthpiece to a male adapter which will go in the joint.

    yes i'm waiting too, but still haven't pulled the trigger on the water piece adapter as i'm looking for a cheaper alternative (trying to save here and there as i'm spending a lot in that vaping business lately...)
    For the U-bend adapter if you bought the one shown in sneaky pete demos you won't have any trouble, if you tried one on dhgate i'd be very interested in your experience ;)

    To be honest, i bought the piece for use with my vapcaps mostly, but ill be hanging about here to get some recommendations ;)

    (Not sure if you saw my edit re the cheaper option?)

    i'll look into that, thanks!
    even if i think i'd prefer a glass mouthpiece to a whip..but i keep that in mind, as you always find new ways to experience your weed very attractive :science:
    I have a Vapcap too and an IQ but i thought i'd buy a smaller bubbler for them with a 10mm joint like this one

    Out of curiosity are you going with the fixed of adjustable screen on the Nano WPA? I am a glass shredder so I went with the cheaper adjustable option but found I could vary the load size and its placement with the adjustable screen better. However there are folks, who are just as happy with the fixed screen for taste and convenience.

    i went with the adjustable too after having read someone complaining that he couldn't experiment with the fixed glass, i usually like to try many things and don't really see the cleaning of the screen as a big hassle (the IQ gasket, THAT is a real pain in...)
    Can't wait to receive and try it (fingers crossed for the italian customs, they are very unpredictable)


    I still don't get why i found this J Hook that looks really like the SB Junior WPA only in 10mm
    https://m.dhgate.com/product/high-q...5828323.html#msviewed-5-9|null:01:r1116804814
    When i type the same description with 14mm instead of 10mm i only find that sort of thing, kind of a glass pipe:

    @hopla i meant the whip going from the sticky brick to the bong instead of the u-joint, then you use the bong in the normal fashion.

    oh yes in that case that may be very cool.
    And even easier to manage the SB Junior (not resting in the air...).
    In that case you need a whip in silicone right? that's the best tastewise.
    do you have a reference for that whip?
    i think i'd prefer it that way, Sneaky Pete's U-joint is too expensive (i'd pay less for two bongs than for that U joint alone...)

    edit: found that on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/vaporents/comments/7lrb2b/vinyl_and_vas_mflb_whip_cork_sticky_brick_junior/

    and that, with some tips:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/vaporents/comments/7m4d1g/got_the_sticky_brick_og_for_xmas/
    I quote @yourtokingbuddy not only once:
    "I retrofitted my MFLB whip for the Sticky Brick Junior recently with just a little cork. If you want a WPA get yourself some tubing (safe tubing only!) and two 14mm male whip adapters from dhgate and make your own if you want water filtration. Cheaper and fills your same need!"

    but twice https://www.reddit.com/r/vaporents/comments/7lj58r/my_roomates_genius_idea/
    "I'm gonna post mine to here and Stoner Engineering shortly but I bought cork and retrofitted my MFLB whip for the Sticky Brick Junior. The 14mm end goes glass on glass and the stem goes in a 1/2" hole in drilled in the cork, which goes in the SBJ. Works like a charm."

    Too bad i didn't find any pictures, but it doesn't seem too difficult to do.

    and instead of the "cork-operation" there's still that possibility ohttp://www.stickybricklabs.com/home.html#!/Whip-Connectors/p/75789308/category=19878042

    Or the cheapest:
    https://m.dhgate.com/product/ultra-...734.html#pdsimitem-12-5|null:9001:r0279906718
    but i have a serious doubt about the silicone quality... i could still buy this thing for the 14.4mm adapter and buy an Arizer silicone tube or another from well known brand as i should look for a food grade silicone tubing to avoid any plastic taste.

    Nice bit of research you've done there!

    I believe there is a thread in these here nearabouts regarding whips. This lot know their apples, so id go on their suggestion. If the whip was big enough in diameter it should fit straight over the mouthstem of the brick. Then just need a 14mm female to 10mm male maybe? Or 14mm male? Wouldnt be sure till the whip had been chosen.

    I'll go and check the whip section later ;)
    I also found that vaposhop has the U joint at 32€ (and the fat mouthpiece for the Dynavap) and if i found another thing to reach 50€ there's free delivery... so i may go for that solution (and end up paying another 50€ but with some things i need)

    I have that same bubbler with the 14mm joint. Great for the Nano and vapcap, and future vapes. Just buy 14mm gongs and wpas.
    I prefer the adjustable stems and gongs for the nano. The fixed are a tad shallow for me and the honey cone glass screen breaks eventually.

    Have not used it with my SBjr. The Tubo Evic does not sit properly on this shape bubbler without a carb adaptor. Which I also recommend you get. A good addition for any bubbler, it lets you carb the bubbler without lifting the nano or which ever vape. Which is where gong breakage happens when gongs hang on to vapes somehow, then release when dangling above tile. They love doing that. :mental:

    ok when i quote i can see your set up.
    The carb adapter is the thingy at the right, right? you pull it to clear the vapour.
    Very neat set up, i could see me with the same one ;)

    edit: now i can see your pic in your post without using the "quote stratagem"

    Yea, it's like it unlocks it, just for you when you quote it or reply it, which sends it like a quote to your message area.

    Yes, the carb pin is the piece going out to the right, but it's part of the whole adaptor that slides into the bubbler. Then your gong goes into that.

    Since they are cheap enough, I bought two of each of the 3 sizes to have in my arsenal so they work without adaptors for all 14 & 18mm bubbler joints & both 14 & 18mm vapes. They're great. Made well & not flimsy like the dhgate buddy adaptor from steven.
