    No Healthstone Glass makes there own Vaporig now. I entered a drawing contest and got a prototype for a deal. They retail for $325 clear, $350+ for color. Its the same one that was on ALT

    Here you go... basically, the main issue I can see (in theory since I don't have one to try it with) with using the complete Healthstone pipe set up for vaping herb is getting the stone in and out easily (and not loosing or breaking it). My solution was to rig up a paperclip to slide in with the stone so I can easily lift it out. I would prefer to use stainless steel, but for now this seems to work just fine. I just try not to hit it directly with the fire. You do have to be careful using a blue flame, it's hot, and can make "hot spots" on the herb where it can scorch or worse... I try to hold it so the flame is not touching the stone, but the hot air coming off the tip of the flame is hitting the stone, and move it around a bit so I don't just heat one area. Best to err on the side of caution when applying heat. It doesn't really work well with yellow flame, it's too close, and the fire wants to touch the stone to easily, which results in soot and a bad taste. This was just for my own entertainment, and curiosity...

    I didn't win the free stone friday this week, will try again next time. How cool is it that they give a way a Healthstone each week?? I did a test run with a small dab of oil, and boy does this stone ever work for that application!! Very nice indeed, and I will eventually get my hands on one of the cooling pipes at some point.

    just a little update, ALT is having a 420 15% off the entire site sale, so I went for the original style clear HS hand pipe. I wanted the newer one, but had to pick the lower cost for now. I am dreaming about those rainbow colored ones... btw... they are going fast, I hope they add more.

    Ok y'all... I figured out something pretty darn cool, if you ask me. I am doing this strictly for my own (and hopefully your) entertainment, so try at your own risk :p

    First I want to say I got my HS in today and did a dab right off to treat it proper. This is definitely a great dabbing tool! The one I got is the clear/frosted bowl original style, which is on sale right now for 15% off at ALT glass (420 sale). I spent a little time fiddling around trying to get a screen to fit down into the body with no luck because of the curve. Then I sat down at my desk, and it hit me... the ELB from my Cloud... and sure enough, it fits down in there, and suspends into the body. I had already fashioned a small wire brace to set the stone onto, for easy removal. So here it is... I've been loading and hitting it and so far it's working. So with very little modding, I now have a HS that can vape oil and/or herb :D

    ** the blue flame works better at a distance, you can move it closer to find the sweet spot, but to avoid burning, do not directly apply the blue flame directly to the stone until you know how hot your torch is, some burn hotter than others, hold it a couple of inches away from the stone. Also, do not over stuff the ELB. I've been sitting here hitting it over and over as I type this and it sure is working... :ko: and for a smaller load, you can also just use the lid from the ELB instead, and get a smaller amount for being conservative.

    ...and here is the ABV from after I made that video... it still had more juju left, I just wanted to show that it was not burned.

    sorry for the back to back, but my wee hour vaping brought me to this next mod:

    Using the VG screen catch loop, and a ss screen. I just had to expand the loop a bit so it would take a snug fit, got it snug down at the bottom of the taper, and put the screen on top of that. Easy mod, works well, just go light handed on the torch, much easier to over do it, but so far I have not combusted, and getting amazing hits! With this set up, you do have to be mindful not to press down too hard, so you don't pop your support loop down into the body. It can take some resistance for stirring and loading.

    This seems to be working great like this, and I also found that the ELB cap was working better for that mod, but each has worked and has been fun experimenting with. The main concept here is that you want at least a few mm or so of an air gap between the load and the under side of the heat stone. So there you have it, 2 ways to use the HS for flowers. And I bet you could put some hash or kif in there too. :tup:

    ...oh and yes, you can use yellow flame, you just have to be extra careful not to touch it to the stone... we have a winner!! :party:

    Here's the ABV from my first load. I did stir a few times every few hits. looks nice and evenly toasted with no scorching. You do have to be careful stirring, not to move the screen out of place. At least while it's all fresh and clean.

    I'd say share your finding with HSG. Maybe they will make a prototype and give you the first one.

    Jam, here's what you do: Load up a bowl in the ELB, and add some oil to the Health Stone. Vape the oil out, then use it like you did when it had just herb. Oil claim on the herb before you vape it :freak:

    since I put that VG tension ring and screen in there, I've been using this all day long and it's hitting like a champ! Another tip, for those of you who may care to know, the glass Vaprogenie top also fits into the top of the HS pipe, though it doesn't go in very far, at least in my bowl, it stays put just fine for use. I am super stoked about this discovery, they make some sick looking glass. I know I will be collecting more in the future. Here's a pic of the VG top... I tend to mix and match my vape parts when ever possible.

    I can see stacking a multi-layer load, oil on top of the stone, kif on top of herb under the stone, maybe a thin layer of bubble hash in there too... why not? :ko:

    *some particulate has migrated to the lower chamber because the screen moved out of place when stirring.

    ^^Just wanted to give another update, been using the HS pipe along with the VG top, mostly because it just has not yet scorched my herbs yet. I have scorched a few times with the healthstone disk. I think with the wire brace I added to make it easy to remove the stone, it is degrading the edges of the stone a bit, allowing the flame to seep in around the side now and then. I am super stoked about this VG/HS combo.

    I'm a cheap bastard. So after recently purchasing my extreme Q and n3rd DI rig I didn't wanna spend the money for a slide / pipe. I ended up buying a replacement stone. It fits my cyclone bowl fine (just set in there a bit deep) and has worked great so far.

    It's been so good that I think I will hold off on getting a portable vape (solo). Do you guys know of any glass pipes that would work with the stone (it fits 18mm GonG, like the bottom half)? I'd rather not buy a sherlock + stone.

    you could try a J hook with 18mm joint... Those are usually around $20 or so.

    Thanks!! I was very surprised to get such a nice one. ALT wants close to $170 for them...

    **just wanted to add... the glass VG top does not fit into the new HS pipe I just got. So anyone attempting to do my HS/VG mod, please be aware, the HS is hand made, so each will be slightly different. I can say that the low profile reducer I got from ebay does fit the second HS pipe ( fits both actually ) So I am pleased with that because I got 2 of these reducers for $10 shipped. http://www.ebay.com/itm/320925933791?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

    I just don't want someone to get the parts together and get mad at me if they don't fit well. So far the ebay reducer is a little longer than I'd like by maybe 1/4" or so, but it works on both style pipes, and that is a great price. Both of the ones I got look identical, so I am assuming they are mass produced this way.
