    hey everybody I'm thinking of getting a ufo and using it with a UD. The problem is the acrylic downstem will warp so I'm wondering if someone knows where to get one or if there's a glass blower who can customize one.

    Thanks

    Best bet is probably oregonglassblower.

    You planning to connect the UD via some kinda whip setup the way the MFLB connects or a gong adapter?

    @snackmaster I'm planning on using it the way @paytonpenn does, a nong with a wooden stem inside to connect.

    Thanks I'll hit him up.

    Nice. Hadn't seen that setup before.

    I've previously played with the idea of pairing a vapcap with the UFO. May have to revisit that.

    You might need to use a bit of the silicone on the whip to make a tight connection and then you're set

    IIRC you need 6mm

    Was thinking about building a cheap bong out of a mason jar and two straws..
    Or just order a sidecar from Steven, what do you think of that idea ?

    The glass tubes I bought were 6mm, think it needed to be 6.2 or something.

    The only silicone tubes I own came with my hydrobrick, orbitor and UFO. I never visit local headshops so my resources are limited. I’m thinking to just by a 14mm female whip adapter and just attaching that to the the end of the whip
