    My method for recovery works pretty simply and effectively... I have 2 jars of ISO 99%... I vape so what I do is when my cartridge is about 10% left i open the cartridge and soak it in a small bottle of Alcohol... after a couple hours I take it out and put it in another larger jar of 99% ISO for an hour to take any last resins out... If necessary I use a syringe and a blunt needle to squirt alcohol into and through my equipment... When the smaller jar gets very dark and won't dissolve more resins I evaporate it down and end up with a good amount of vape juice... then I replace the small jar with alcohol from the larger jar... All your equipment comes really clean and you waste 0% of vapy goodness... I assume this method would also work for other consumable methods as well.... Last time I did an evap I got 7 ml of vape oil...

    I’m somewhat new to vaping. I used to combust out of my bong for most of my high time.

    I’m interested in reclaiming resin. I have a Pax 3. Will that produce enough to reclaim? Do I just push out the resin/oil from the airflow tube? Should I just follow the process with ISO discussed from the OG-OP?

    This may have already been addressed; I’m going through and reading the thread, but I’m only in 2012, so figured I would ask.

    Thanks for any help! And thank you to everyone for their knowledge which has saved me so much time!

    Anyone have any suggestions as what use to lube the "O" rings on all these different atomizers?

    I would really like to find something that can act like a good squeegee for my stems to just push the reclaim through where it can be gathered up afterwards nice and easy without worrying about solvents.

    I still haven’t found that perfect tool. I would prefer something made of silicone.

    On my Dynavap, I always used the beeswax that I picked up with it to keep the wood supple.

    The dynawax or any of those are usually beeswax & mineral oil. But you can use chapstick or burt’s bees, lots of things along those lines will help keep your o-rings in good condition.

    EDIT: Didn’t see @Roth had answered you, not sure how I missed it...:smug: He’s smart.

    Cool, i'll give that a shot.
    So far virgin olive oil seems to work nice.
    Beeswax might last longer I hope.
