    Sweet.. I just got my tracking number.
    I hope it gets here by Friday. I'm having a celebration this weekend!

    So can anyone confirm if the whole piece is 7mm thick?

    I always assumed 5mm, I'm pretty sure that's what möbius and sovereignty use.
    It feels very sturdy whatever the wall thickness.

    The neck is 4, the can is 5 and the foot is 7. Neck and can are standard heavy wall sizes and the foot is extra heavy.

    Wow, that's pretty cool.
    3 different thickness of glass on one piece. I like that.

    You're the man Justin.
    I asked him to ship by Tuesday so I can have it by this weekend and he's accomplished that.
    It's a beautiful piece. It's everything I wanted; the perfect match for my LSV.
    The 38mm neck fits my mouth perfectly.
    The can is pretty big (70mm)... this thing is solid as hell.
    The gridded donut is beautiful.

    edit:
    The only thing I have a gripe about is I did not receive a bowl with it.
    Even tho I dont combust... I would have liked to have a bowl still... just in case my vapes malfunction.

    That is beautiful keepsake. We're saving up to try and get one before the offer is over and #19 would be our choice as well. :)

    Let us know how it works with your solo.

    Best,

    I do not have a PVHEGONG so I can not use the Solo with it... or any glass (damn you PV!).

    I will have a video of it with my LSV up soon tho.

    Are you a Buddhist as well (#19 is a Yantra).

    Why cant you use the stock solo stem? Might need tubing over the stem if its 18.8mm your trying to mate it with.

    Hmm.. I'll check if I can find some silicone tubing from Lowes or something.
    But I am so used to the free flowing draw of the LSV.. I'm not sure how enjoyable the Solo will be now lol.

    You wont even have to get a long tube, just a few inches placed over the top of the stem so it can make a good seal.

    We managed to get a PVHEGonG turbo, but don't have any appropriate glass with which to use it at this point. :rolleyes:

    Our old Ehle tube is too large in volume and diffuses too little to prevent throat burnout with the solo. The GonG is really effective, but a bit hard to appreciate until mated to something more appropriate in size and/or diffusion.

    Good luck getting a PV GonG. If I see it in stock, a post will be made.

    Although not a Buddhist per se, my best friend for many years was a devout Buddhist. Having spent long hours in the silence years ago, that Yantra has great appeal.

    I too received my piece today, couldn't be happier to receive it on a Friday.:tup:

    I don't really have the words to express the workmanship. It's by far some of the cleanest work I've seen and exceeds expectations on so many levels.

    (Apologies for the sub-par photos)

    (Bonus accidental reflection photo...thing. No idea what happened or I'd do it again....had to share)

    No slide was included, but for a vapor forum it's not a big deal. I think I've got enough brand new unused slides to last me forever. Some may want to combust through it, so you may need to request the bowl separately if that's you.

    The most important thing to me is functionality and the EFS Donut delivers in spades. I've only used it quickly with my UD, but can already tell it's going to be one of my favorite pieces.

    Thanks Fred for making the recommendation, BDV for bringing EFS on and Justin for the superb art, workmanship and service.

    If you are on the fence on this deal, get down off it and make your order. You will not be disappointed.

    That's a beautiful piece man ^
    It's a much more complete image than mine and is easier to recognize what it is.
    You gotta focus a little bit to realize what the image is on my piece.
    That's okay tho.

    If I could change one thing about my piece tho.. I would have the mouth piece (or neck tube I should say) be more bent. I'm short so when it's sitting on my table.. I still have to stand up to hit it. If it was more bent.. it would probably reach my mouth perfectly. Oh well... I still love it and think it's worth every penny.

    You the man Justin.

    Paid for my order last night, hope to get a shipping date soonish...

    Asked for the one with the mayan calendar picture, asked to keep it as small as possible, preferably under 11inch.

    Also asked for the smaller neck, and the neck bent as far as possible. Hope to have some news soon.

    I actually let go of my fc bubbler with lattice for this...it was simply too big for my likings, so I hope this one turns out a tad smaller:nod:

    Edit: just recieved a message from justin it will be made by the end of next week...:)

    Yeah, I wish I asked him to keep it at 11 inches tall as well & with a more bent neck.
    I would've also liked a smaller can.. like maybe 60mm instead of 70mm.
    But it's still a very nice piece for me, no regrets.

    After some more days of looking at the different options I shot an email to Justin seeing if it would still be possible to change the picture into the one with the owl...hope he answers positively seeing he was only going to be able to make it next week...

    how long can a few weeks take:science:
