    I am trying to link to etsy, I hope I'm not breaking any rules so please forgive me if I am:

    Notice on this page there are several types, some roundish some triangle, some other ... i found some with a flat body with 5 beads aroud the edges that just fits perfectly in the stem of the glass mesh bowl pictured above...no breaking no muss no fuss.

    Thx. Interesting.

    So you place those from esty above the glass mesh screen and then you add the flowers on top of it?

    I looked them up and the first photo is the type I was talking about.

    But how did you break it out of the bowl perfectly?

    I don't exactly understand the break question...I bought a little things that I drop into the glass mesh bowl that JoJo sells... No breaking of anything.

    @juxt

    So if I understand you correctly....
    Take the new glass mesh bowl and add another glass starfish type glass insert on top of the glass mesh inside the new glass mesh bowl?
    2 glass screens in the same bowl?

    What are the benefits of using 2 glass screens???

    I think everyone is confused here.

    See you said to search "18mm glass bowl" on google and its the 1st image.

    This is the 1st image on my google image results. http://legalsmokeshop.com/shop/glass-bowl-glass-screen/

    But as you can see it says "built in screen"

    The screen would have to be somehow perfectly broken to be removed.

    This is why we would all like photos of what your speaking about so we can get more of an understanding.

    Sorry, don't search for glass bowl that's not what I said ... "Glass bowl screen" is the correct search, and the Etsy page I sent has 4 pictures of ones that are not built into the bowl but sold separately...they are made to drop into a bowl made for combustion that you might normally use a brass or ss screen, honestly it's pretty surprising to me that folks don't know what I'm talking about, but experience is funny that way...

    I'll do some photos as requested, just give me a few days :).

    I use an extra glass screen insert so I can do super fine grind of herb without getting pieces of plant material in my glass pieces... It just helps keep it super clean.

    So you are using an extra glass screen as your fine particulate filter!
    Instead of placing some fine mesh to stop the particles entering your WT, you use another glass screen!

    Sorted!!

    The new glass mesh bowl was meant for a coarser grind, so this would not be an issue if used in this way.

    I just love my micro dose bowl with an EQ bowl!!

    "Glass bowl screen" also shows the same 1st photo as I linked.

    But anyways, I totally comprehend your modification, i've just got no idea where to find perfect fitting size glass screens.

    Got my all glass bowl in and I am really happy with it. Also what are we calling it? I've been going with all glass bowl in my head.

    I'll get my one negative out of the way, stuff falls through the glass mesh. I hand tear so it isn't too much of an issue for me, I just needed to get the sizing right. So far I've been using it with a basket screen on the bottom while I check it out. On my last hit I just pop it out and put whatever fell through back in, works really well.

    I forgot what temp people said they were using it at so I started at 950 (1st gen heater). For me it was too high, but there was no charring or bad taste or anything. Just a lot of extraction. Also I totally agree with slowing up on the draw, but it's not that there's a lot more draw resistance. The harder you pull the more the flower starts shrinking, turning into a puck and adding more resistance. It went from pretty open to milkshake through a straw when I pulled on it like it was the funnel or stadium bowl. In a weird way it reminds me of a non newtonian fluid or kinetic sand or whatever, the harder/faster you try the go the more it resists. If you go nice and slow you don't even notice resistance though.

    I tried again at 900 (1st gen heater) and it was much better but still too high. I settled in around 850 and was much happier with the taste. I'm still going lower and figuring out exactly what temp I like this bowl at. Still seeing if I like packing it or not, it seems to happen naturally as you inhale though.

    Taste is great. I was enjoying it so much I started getting my other stuff out to taste. About 3 or 4 hits for extraction, it depends on how dry it is and how big your chunks are though. I have been hand crushing what's left to throw in the funnel bowl and see what I get. I get vapor, but it's light popcorn tasting meh vapor. I feel like I already got what I wanted out of it with the all glass bowl.

    This will be a good micro-dosing bowl, even more so than the funnel bowl. If you still wanted to fine grind you could put a fine mesh screen over the glass and it's like a smaller funnel bowl.

    One weird thing was the high felt like it creeped up on me more, I'm going to have to see if I feel that way after using it again. Eventually I'll want to clean it, but it won't be because the screen is clogged. It's super easy to unblock the holes with something. I was using some really dry powdery flower towards the end.

    I think it's called the "Glass Mesh Bowl" but I can't say that fast 1 time a row, much less 5.

    Also, DANG BRO you been killin it! I got mine a few days ago and it's still clean as a whistle. I have been cleaning mine as I go though and I do like an extra filter there. I'm trying to get setup do show a pic of mine and the dropdown I use.

    What does the rest of your glass look like though, as that looks like chunks of gunk are flowing freely through your piece which I can't stand.

    OK, so I took some photos but now don't know how to get them on here...thoughts? I'm not on instagram and whatnot and can't really post under my IRL name. Some notes, I had a larger completedly flat screen but my local bro dumped it with the ABV and it's gone forever. I went back to the local vape shop, but he didn't have any more flat ones, only the kind with the stem made to go into a single hole glass bowl. In one pic you will see that I have 3 of them in there now, they are too small. I had him order some more of the flat ones, so we'll see in the end how hey go. I also have pics of 3 dropdowns I use as ashcatchers. The amber/yellow/clean one is used exclusively with the GS, with either a ss+fine mesh ss screen combo or now the multi glass screen mesh bowl. The two dirty drop downs are as dirty as I let a piece get ... my actual water pipes I keep meticulously clean, once the boogers start forming I clean it out. Peace water helps with this, as the boogers form much later.

    In any case, thoughts on a good place to store the pics would be helpful? I'm sorry I'm such a n00b :/

    Easy bro. I have only ever used imgur to transfer photos here from my tablet. If you are on or could register on imgur, it's easy. Once you know how to upload onto imgur, then simply get onto the image in your imgur so that you can see the dropdown bar to the left.

    Click on this, then select "linked bb code" . Just copy that bb code and paste it here directly. That is the only way I have ever done it and soon as you have done it once it's sinch.

    However, imgur doesnt seem to be working properly atm. I just went there because I took a screenshot for another member one time showing the page with bb code etc. I was gonna put the image here but site is having an issue, so I'll have tonget back to you on that. Good luck for now.

    An easy way for uploading pics is using Pinterest. All pics on Pinterest you can transfer to your post just by c&p it directely to the right position in the text field.

    I will have to check it out it may be a simpler, faster process than imgur perhaps which is still a bit of a run around loading pages etc.
