    Looks like an inverted 18-14 reducer (as in, just placed upside down on it, probably with a little bit of silicone to form a seal.)

    Correct, that is a 14/18mm adapter. Two sizes of silicone tubing is used. First is 3/16ths, which is placed on the "straw", then 3/8ths over that.

    Awesome thanks. A friend of mine is interested in the Firewood, since it fits his criteria better than any other vape I know of: Pocketable, Heat On-Demand, Not Primarily Conduction (so no mflb or palm), Battery-powered, and inexpensive. Since I have my Pinnacle WT (14 mm) I'm trying to figure out how I could connect it to the Firewood. I'm thinking I could use the same tubing as you but with this adapter: http://aqualabtechnologies.com/glas...lt-90-14-mm-female-to-14-mm-male-adapter.html

    Good to know, thanks. Do you leave the tubing on even when you're not using a glass adapter, and if so, does it annoy you at all or anything? I only ask because if I'm going to do this to a friend's vape, I don't want to make it weird for him to use without glass.

    The glass mouthpiece without the silicone got too hot for my liking. The only problem I could see is it possibly getting dirty. But then I must question why you're sticking your vape in dirty places :uhoh:.

    Here's a picture of it.

    How hard is the button press? Interesting how the button mechanism is laid out with the piece of wood.

    So is the wood sealed, or could a user stain it?

    Heater button only requires a light force to engage. Be sure to turn-off unit before transporting to prevent accidental heat up.

    Yes, "butcher block" oil is applied to all units. If this is unsatisfactory to some, they could further seal it themselves, if desired.

    Further seal, but stain? Will a stain take over butcher block oil?

    It should if it's an oil-based stain.

    I've found that the current screen design limits the capabilities of the Firewood. I've advised Marc on a possible solution to this. Until he is able to create and test my suggestion, a far cruder version can still be used on current Firewoods. It's nothing more than a screen inserted down into the heater tube. The problem, is having it be easily removable.

    [​IMG]

    Here is a simple diagram of how I cut my screens so they'll properly insert into the glass. The heater tube is about the same diameter of a #2 pencil so you can use something similar to shape the screen. I'm sure many have accessories to extract the screens of various other vaporizers. Just have to snag a corner and pull it out.

    A pin with a bent or abraded tip can be used to hook a screen.

    Wow, this is the first I am seeing of this unit. It does look like a dugout, a fancy one at that! I have read all the few pages on this device and like what I seen. This does look like a neat little unit. I wish you well with it Marc and I look forward to your progress.

    Well... purchase completed. I should have a Firewood on the way soon. I tell you that nostalgic feeling of having my dug-out with me has me very excited to give this vaporize a try.

    You can (IMO should) include a small poker with a ball at the end so that you can insert that through the mouthpiece tube to push the screen in/out. It looks like a straightened paper clip would also work, but I think future customers would appreciate the almost-necessary addition. Perhaps a small filling funnel would be nice too? Not sure if you're already including them or not. $100 is a very competitive price, especially with the video showing some nice clouds from such a small unit. Once you're settled down and things are rolling I think even just a 10% off "FC discount" would encourage even more people to buy it.

    The mouthplate sounds like it's got a magnet inside, is this correct? How does the unit perform with 1/2 of a load and upside down? Do you have plans for a GonG adapter? Maybe just something as simple as a 14mm male end that tapers off to the stem, or an included slightly longer stem with some silicone so that it fits inside a downstem? For a bill, you've got me looking forward to future improvements. I know some of us would be willing to give you an extra $20-30 for exotic wood bodies :nod: Good luck, I'll be watching from a distance for a little bit, but I'm liking this.

    $100 was the early buyer's price, $120 is the normal one. I don't remember where I read this, I think it was somewhere on /r/vaporents.

    Sure, Spain has been added. Please make sure to ready the notes about international shipments under the item description.

    You can also request an unfinished unit. I think there is an option for special requests on etsy where you could enter that in and I'll send a sanded but unfinished unit.

    Sure, but why? Is there a difference in how long they last?

    Yep that's correct, $100 was an introductory offer to help get the ball rolling. $120 is the normal price and it won't be going up more any time soon.

    Modnote: 4 back-to-back posts merged. Please avoid making back-to-back posts when possible.

    Some people prefer stainless steel material to brass. Just personal preference.

    Are you still using this setup and if so how is this working out? One issue I thought of if you do this is that you the glass tube above your screen will get much dirtier than when you use the glass mouthpiece.

    I also wanted to make sure your mouthpiece screen was/is inserted correctly because this can make a difference in how easy it is to draw. You really want the mouthpiece screen to form a bulb and to stick out of the glass a little way like this photo [​IMG] shows. Yours might have gotten pushed in during shipment.
