    I ask ,do most accidents seem to add up to when cleaning?



    Good stuff,T-DUB I see your very resourceful and have a ton of knowledge here on the forum, Excellent! I also picked up on the NACE due to your posts and couldnt be happier w/it, good stuff. I love glass, never before like the moment.Glass just makes it an experience that does the trick.The new vaporists I have introduced to the scene,fell immediately in love with the glass and vape vs just the vape. Even at low temps I have problems so water path does the trick for me.I'm waiting on a J.Pixel side car bubb and will hold off for a while w/the GAS.I have to turn some resources over to another situation for a while. Im lov'n the little PN WT,so small but very effective and so compact for a tube.Never would I have imagined there would be something as slick as that ,especially mated up to the Solo...out in the great outdoors......just cant be beat!! and now you have shown me how to really get it clean,props once again T-DUB! :rockon:

    The most epic fail of all time for me on this one. I got it safely thru the plane stored on my custom foamed peli, to let it fall from the table the first day, still unused, cherry on the irony cake I cut myself to blood with it storing it back in the peli. Most horrible two hours after that, thinking about the damage I dumb did, and my finger.. that cherry. lol, thinking rewind rewind. The kind of pain your want for your worst enemy

    Fortunately I still had two other pieces with me so I was able to medicate properly. Wouldn't count on just one rig for 13 days.

    It's on the process of getting fixed, like all my stuff that broke. I may even get that disc kettle pot back finally, the blower is working on a new one for me.

    t-dub, guys, thanks for the support, lol, I go thru it already since it was a couple weeks ago but that was very very annoyingly disturbing to crash something that worthy in a second of inattention. The lesson is, stay cool around glass, take your time, keep your attention on them and cover your pieces, never let them in exposed spots.

    I wasn't thinking it like that before, but it is more painful each time, each break is a small trauma and they kind of add up.

    Exactly, I just checked with jhan, the repair is going to be a heavy operation, only the frit, bottom and mouthpiece will remain. That spider crack means the can is heavily damaged. At least, with all the glass I have around it's not going to be hard to wait for the fixing.

    I'm going to use thing as an opportunity to make a whole new piece out of it, more volume and a bent mouth piece, special lean back !

    Jhanpixel, he posts known as red glass gallery here. The thing with repairs is that the result is always a surprise. I hope for the best

    PVHEGong broke today today. Just the second time I used it. Split right at the frosted part. I saw that it happened to someone else in an earlier post. Not sure if it was my fault, but could have been. Anyway, I came up with an idea a little later on and it works pretty good. I had extra o-rings. So I put 3 on what was left of it. Put 2 on first and then a 3rd on top of the first 2 (they act like a stopper). It's not perfect, but it sits fine and I got some nice clouds. [​IMG] [​IMG] Thought I would pass this on.

    I broke my mobius ion a few months ago. I never took pictures because it was too depressing, but at least I broke it myself so I have no one to blame :D

    Just broke my Phire Double Inline.. ugh. With the AC on my tube, the piece became a top heavy piece and all it took was one little nudge on the table, it started to wobble and I just watched it.

    It is fixable, however it wont be done for a while. I am contemplating having it turned into a custom oil rig, because the female side broke. So I could have them change the piece up and put a mouthpiece on it.. That will all happen later, funds are tight.

    My little oil rig kicked the bucket. I knocked it over and it landed right on the fuckin' joint. The good thing is it was only $60 for a full set, and the better thing is my local headshop has a LOT of budget glass that actually works. I saw some little recyclers for $70, and a few sweet sidecars for $80. Perfect sizes for vaporizing.

    On the plus side I kind of got a 14mm elbow adapter now...
