    I’m pretty sure I’ve seen him use NewVape’s “Pax Loading Tool” which you can get with or without a threaded handle end (threading lets it attach to a carb cap, etc.), and they also sell a very small scoop for dabbing or micro-dosing.

    They fit well with my FlowerPot kit so I like them both, but any small measuring spoons such as those linked above should also work fine.

    @Ratchett makes scoops in 2 sizes. Or you can get and use a salt spoon...

    I had Delta make a custom colored one for me, their poke version. I gave it to my buddy, he loves it, thinking I'd just get another. Unfortunately shape ways doesn't seem to want to accept the dimensions of the scoop anymore. I don't think I'll be able to get one. Of course my buddy makes a point of letting me know how nice the scoop works on a fairly regular basis.

    My opinion is the poke scoop handle needs to be about an inch longer. That is the only complaint my buddy has. The scoop portion works great. That is why I was going the custom route-to get the color I wanted and the length I desired.

    I need to get the pax one from newvape..I have a few from ratchet that work great the best of which is the 4 way tool..love that thing..I also have the threaded one from newvape that work good but when I screw it on the carb cap is always crooked and it won’t make it to where the scoop and lollicap are flat..just make it kinda awkward to hold fwiw..

    Fuck those 3d printed scoops from Delta, especially at that price. Paying $20 for something the size of a wooden match and not get stainless steel? Fucking preorder?

    I know the price sucks, I've been looking hard to find a partner in America capable of producing stainless steel tools of this size to my specifications. Sadly literally everyone I've spoken to has their factories located in China. It's beyond impossible to find a factory in America willing to work with me to mass produce these scoops in low volumes. If you or anyone have a lead on an American based factory, please by all means DM me the info, I'd love to find someone who can help me manufacturer these scoop tools at a lower cost.

    In the meantime, these scoops are 3D printed off site using an extremely expensive powder based stainless steel metal 3D printer. The finished prints must be baked in a kiln to anneal the metal and then hand buffed post cooling. The process is quite labor intensive and slow, taking almost three weeks on average to produce a batch of scoops to my specs.

    No hard feelings and thanks for the pertinent details, @Ratchett.

    Just for clarification, the scoop Troy/420VapeZone always uses is indeed from Delta3DStudios.

    Atman arrived and it's nicely made with good weight to it. Here's a pic next to my xl for reference:

    I'd like it to have a bit more depth/scoop contour like the pax tool but if I ground more at a time I bet it'd balance out.

    Yep, and I love @Ratchett, his products, and how he does buisness and have a bunch of his stuff incl scoops. But the NV Pax Loading Tool is by far my favorite and it fits into ELBs and Enano stems.

    Level of fine grind is right about at .1 g and heaping is right about .15 g, all depending on grind and moisture level of course.

    Since we're all posting pictures of our fancy expensive scoops, take a gander at the scoop I've been using for like a year.
    It's a clear drinking straw cut into a scoop shape on the end with a pair of scissors, and stuck on the end of a Magic Flight cleaning brush.

    Cost me...wait for it...$0.00!

    Keeps me happy, lol (don't judge my poor-ass, ha ha ha!):

    (I still want one of those fancy/schmancy metal ones one of these days :razz:)

    If you want to get fancy, there are straws cut like that from the factory. They’re usually at convenience stores, at least around here, and they’re usually red (or sometimes other colors) rather than clear. Stick that on a matching red brush and your upscale plastic straw-spoon scoop will be the envy of many a lowly paper-scooper (which is what I was until recently)... ;)

    You can order longer ones now? Why'd you go longer anyways? Have you seen the grinder sized one? What grinder is that anyways? Looks interesting.
