    hahaha man did you know that psychological research shows that images of watching eyes encourage pro-social behaviour? I am hoping it'll make me a better person!

    Creepy was what I was going for. That piece actually had a bad weld where the eye met the tube and cracked up on me in the kiln. It's now living out the rest of its life as a pendant. Yes I can make one on a gong. The gong may have to be a bit tall to make clearance. It was actually going to be part of a set. I have another eye I did in the same style but is a steel wool lid with red iris. Looks pretty slick too!

    This sounds very promising man. How much would I be looking at for this to go onto a GonG, could I see a pic of the eye piece? Approximately how much for priority mail international with USPS to Australia?

    You'd probably be looking at 40$ for the piece itself (eyeballs aren't easy for me.... Yet) then whatever shipping would be. Are you talking about the steelwool eye I spoke of?

    I bet if you asked nicely, it could be done... :buzz:

    Sorry for the derail, @VaPeD&CoNfUsEd ... I just always liked the look of the "Elite" Nano...

    And one of your glass pieces, in a dark room, lit only by an Elite...

    Shit. Be fucking ballz.

    I always wanted one myself! Now I want one with 3 interior lights and a removeable cord plus one of my stems.

    I'd probably make a whole new eyeball for it. The red in the iris on this one didn't strike as deep a red as I was hoping for. I ordered some really nice deep red today when I ordered my 18mm gongs.

    Very nice, in fact, would you be capable of knocking together a male-male 19mm GonG adapter so I can hook up my incoming Persei/Bender to my glass? I'd much rather give my business to someone who posts here and who I've shot the breeze with :)

    I am capable of that but it'll be a minute before I have enough gongs to whip one up. The gong order I have coming is all going to make nano gongs and I'm still scared I'll run out (so long as everybody has been serious about swooping them once their available anyways). Lol

    Not yet man, @THC SCIENTIFIC is going to ship ASAP, he's been in solid communication with me all the way though, excellent service! I've changed up a couple bits of my order too, getting the black unit instead of silver etc. My plan is to use the 3.7v SR74 with QWISO everywhere I go w/ SS kit mini tube and 1 x AW 18350 (with 3 others on hand for backup :D). The high end ecig look is perfect to pass by undetected. The added benefit of nothing recognizable loaded in the Herc and it not being obvious how to open it anyway really suits my application.

    I'm using the time to have loads of QWISO ready to load up my herc, won't have enough QWET shatter when I get my w9 toys to load up with at first. Besides, I figure winterized QWISO is stealthier, no flowery smell to it :) I think the more malleable/sticky/waxy form of my QWISO will much easier for loading with a lot less priming too!

    The Hercules is powerful enough that priming isn't a concern after the initial loading... but this is a discussion for a different thread.


    Edit: oh wait ur going to run @ 3.7v... Might be a concern. Dont know myself.

    SHATTER 3x purged in a Hercules?
    Now we are speaking about fine CANNABIS consumption.

    I need to have some custom glass piece made for the HERCULES.

    I'll come up with something!

    Trust me!

    Thank you, sir! Didn't even know about this thread till you tagged me.

    I've been waiting months for another unnamed vendor to get some Solo gongs in but they have not come through and I've all but given up on them.

    The glass work on this thread looks absolutely stunning.

    What would it take to get some Solo 18mm gongs made up? I'd even consider buying some new custom stems. I'd be first in line standing at the ready!
