    The Naughty Unicorn with an herbal load.

    The Naughty Unicorn is an on demand butane vaporizer that consists of one glass piece and relies on an 18mm ground glass connection.
    A single flame lighter is placed so the flame kisses the opening. It clouds so thick and so instantly, and yes I can char if I try to ride that too long, but so far it's only a risk when trying to extract every last bit from the weed.
    My homemade vaporizer consists of one glass piece with 2 screens (1 basket, 1 rimmed), and a small piece of silicone tubing.
    To stir, it's really required to remove the rimmed screen to access the herb, because it really sticks hard to that screen, especially the first toke.
    The silicone is to facilitate holding the device for stirring and removal.

    I have experimented many times with this fun little thing with lots of revisions. It started out as a heater replacement for the elev8r using a triple torch lighter. Moving the load closer to the heater by eliminating the elev8r bowl made stirring a little more annoying, but allows a single flame to rock the hell out the herb without making the screen red-hot. The elev8r bowl let me see the herb vaporize right at eye level, which was awesome. It also made stirring a breeze, just lift and stir.

    My early versions with the triple flame involved a technique that made a small screen in the thin heat intake glow red. I alleviated this by reducing the heat and raising the bowl very close to the heat intake, removing the need for the screen in the stem (which was to diffuse heat).

    This is my leg, but you can also see into the bowl of the Naughty Unicorn.

    That basket screen is just friction fit in there, and not even that securely. Just don't stab when stirring. Be gentle with the Unicorn. The rimmed basket screen goes right on top of that, and then it's done.

    Pushing the limits with this guy, I was able to char, but feedback with this is so fast, no actual burning took place. This Unicorn is very receptive to flame control...I was getting some really long lower temp pulls that were so delicious, but it takes practice. My initial usage consisted of milking for a few seconds, stop and stir, rinse and repeat.

    All parts were from other purchases. The glass piece is a cheap nectar collector tip. The rimmed screens were bought for use with my insta heat cartridge. The other screen was for glass stems for my heat island/underdog, but flattened out just a bit.

    I had so much fun playing around with this, and figured maybe someone else would want to get high with a unicorn, and maybe they already have the spare parts or comparable parts. Finally, I have no way of taking usage shots cause this takes two hands to use and I vape alone at the house.

    Chronic hahahaha
    I wouldn't read into it too much. It is the internet, and I was more defending the idea that masturbation hurts no one, and is a normal thing to do. So I guess I'm a masturbation champion. God that sounds horrible too. I guess never talk about masturbation to anyone other than a lover is a good rule hahaha

    Could somebody define "chronic" when it comes to masturbation? I just want to make sure that I possibly adapt my routine to become part of the club. :)

    But on topic: Nice idea, @Diggy Smalls! Would love to see a video of you milking the tool with it! Damn, that sounds horrible again in the masturbation context...

    Looks good, i experimented with something similar, consisting of a male to male adapter as bowl and a little downstem on top as flame intake.
    I was too lazy to refine it but great potential and i can imagine very well that something like this could come as standard with every pipe in a some Years, like the normal bowl now.

    So easy and Cheap! I mean the Elev8er gets raving reviews even from people who own more than one top of the line Vape for several hundred $.....

    Here's my interpretation...:rockon:

    Acute: An intensely focused session of short duration.

    Chronic: Prolonged, endless and repeated flogging, over and over, day and night, resulting in calussed hairy palms, poor vision and and a sore red willy.

    More of less...:p

    Very pictorial, thank you @Squiby! :tup:
    I wear glasses, might be a late sequela of my teenage period then... ;)

    And - to stay on topic - great idea, still like to see a video. No problem with nudity. Just saying.

    While I started out with the elev8r bowl, this does not function like one. This is more similar to a Dobby or sticky brick where the heat goes directly into the intake, rather than the glass mass being heated prior to drawing.

    This is now the quickest vape I have. One complaint is that it needs to be stirred.

    I'll try to play with making a video using my crappy laptop camera. I have to be careful though because I have identifying tattoos on my arms and even on a hand.

    Don't take any risk - That's not worth it! Where do the single parts come from?

    The body of the vape is a tip for a generic nectar collector. The rimmed screen is arizer style, and the basket screen is enano/underdog glass stem size.

    No problem, @Mr. Gweilo 420

    (I was in the process of editing the last post, but I went past the timeout period)
    I get so high I forget simple things like flame height. I turned the flame way down and wow....I get that light blue yummy vapor. It's deceivingly smooth and doesn't seem so powerful because it's not a solid thick vapor like I typically get from my Toasty Top or Vapcap. Using the lower flame lets me insert the flame right into the unicorn horn. LOL

    [​IMG]
    Naughty Unicorn and Mr. Bubsy full of vapor.

    We've already gone off topic, but in a way I don't care to anymore lol but since we already have veered, I might as well say I feel really happy today, because my shadowing time at my new job is finally complete and I got to actually do my job for the first time today. It was cool. And now I'm free to make my own schedule according to the needs of my clients and the workload I have. Right now I'm teaching youth with disabilities how to use the public transit system to get to work and back home safely and hopefully confidently. Then I'll coach some of the kiddos to work regular jobs. Normally I work with little kids, but this will be a lot of fun.

    Anyway, I took a trip to the clouds with my Naughty Unicorn this afternoon. I really like the low flame, I'll have to play with that some more.
    Here is something I'm working on.
    [​IMG]
    It's about 24 inches tall...pastels and acrylic on canvas. I'll have to coat it with something in order to keep the pigment from the pastels from rubbing off or falling with age once I'm finished. It's all experimental for me, cause I haven't done much painting in years, and pastels hasn't been since my youth, and I'm in my 40s. Neurons are on a use it or lose it basis, so I lost any familiarity I had gained as a kid. Haha

    My images are so crappy, I'm so tired from work and sore joints from arthritis, I just plop down and take the photos where I am. hahaha Though the devil's lettuce is really helping with pain tonight!

    What is this like $6 in materials. Looks awesome. What size is the nectar collector tip?

    I know some people in the Elev8r thread use 18mm female adapter to whatever their glass fitting is instead of the Elev8r basket. These are the ones I found.

    https://www.dhgate.com/product/10-s...8-male/255871481.html#cart_view-${count}-null

    They even have a space that a pipe screen can slot into. Add a cheap nectar collector tip and you could have a vape for under $10. Seems pretty cool.

    One last question: are you using a soft flame or a torch. I though you were using a torch but I wanted to check.

    Yeah I'm definitely using a torch. Single flame is all that's needed.
    The nectar collector tip has an 18mm male fitting, which I've also been using as the bowl, but you could drop it into one of those adapter (with 18mm female up top) but you would need more heat. I found a triple flame turned down works nice in this manner.

    Thanks. This is really cool, I am waiting on a paycheck to make a larger order on DHgate but I think I might pick up a few pieces to play around with. This is a awesome concept, thanks for sharing it.

    I'm really glad you like the idea, and I'm sure you'll have even more fun with it when you play around with it

    I've been using it all sorts of ways, and I've come to a conclusion:

    Turn down the flame and do it like the first post says, and man it will get consistent medium temp hits. Just kiss the flame to the unicorn horn. It's pretty easy to get yummy vapor, and shaking works great with the lower flame. Just turn the flame down to the lowest flame that is consistent, and let just the very tip of the flame go into the hole.

    The tubo includes this piece as a direct draw stem. Add a couple screens and you have another vaporizer. I still use my others, but I enjoy this one for it's ability to deliver a solid medium sized bowl with instant vapor. It hits faily hard. Listen to Knaugh In Da Ak from Das EFX! It's been years since I heard these guys! Greta track. I digress,
