    Noice!!!!
    I had to make a typing stick for a paralyzed gentleman a long time ago and he found it easier to use if it was angled.
    May help you out instead of being g directly above it.
    Unless you pick up up by the board itself.

    Now we just need a video!

    Really lifted too easy. Wow

    I’m going to put a log around it. 2x4 is a test bed.

    Wow, nice build here !!! Could you share some more photos of your device ? Thermocouple intégration, PID design…
    Is the light/warming-élement PID controlled ?
    does it blink or do you regulate it with a dimmer ?

    I'm about to create same bullet-proof device for extended outdoor sessions with friends… anybody must be abble to operate successfully the device without being able to break small parts and glass parts…
    I'll watch carefully how you go throught your project, thanks again for sharing ;)

    Four layers of slightly oxidized SS screen set in the nozzle to turn all those angry IR waves into hot air.

    Plus keeps crap off lamp.

    (Yes I will clean the polishing compound off before I try it again)

    I really like this project and it came together so quickly! Will you ever post a breakdown of assembly and parts list for those that might need more splainin'? I love your budget and expectations, I would just need to alter for 220V.

    It reminds me of the MUSE vape that I saw here on FC, they both have a Magic Lantern vibe but I am sure they have their differences in design/construction. Well done, @Boden really impressive!

    Thanks. I’ll put up a parts list once I’m done testing everything.

    I’m figuring out how to upload a milk video currently.

    @Stu can you change the thread title and change B1 to Light Box Vaporizer

    Glad you came to that conclusion so I don't even have to mention the potential issue with lead content (unless you are using that special marine grade... but apart from that nearly all brass has some lead to ease machining)

    I love the form factor! It looks neat instant because it's a light source heating the load. Very cool

    @Boden any planned testing with concentrates? If this works as good or better than my E-Nano for convection dabs in hemp fiber you have my full attention! But seeing what it does to herb I don't see why it wouldn't be awesome for dabbing!? Nice work so far!

    It’s a lead free waterline fitting. Free machining is much more rare than it used to be. SS also has free machining leaded versions. Gotta think about these things.

    I could. I have some honey oil around here somewhere.

    Ok this double wasn’t my fault. I’m typing in slow motion, wrong keystrokes are highly unlikely. This is taking forever. Why am I still typing?...

    Edit: WTF ... The double posts flipped positions :hmm:

    I don’t try concentrate often. Dammm

    Was very smooth

    Got too lifted and screwed up video. Currently typing in slow motion.

    Edit: This post is the one that moved through cyberspace and time apparently. Originally posted at 12:59pm yesterday. :hmm:

    I found the stills I took but imger is screwed up this morning. (Current local time 6:25am)

    Imgur seems fixed now.

    I used a bigger jar this time.

    Personally I think it's one of the best looking vaporizers I've ever seen.

    I live in a legal state and still can certainly appreciate the minimalist "I am not paraphernalia" type look.

    I definitely like where you're going with this project.
