    So I've been using a gnome cone or one of his variations for a while. I bought a bunch of them for myself and a bunch as gifts and usually got really good responses from Calen. I placed an order a couple of weeks back and haven't heard BOO... not totally unusual but he always did respond to me in a couple of days. after doing some diggin, I found that he has presumably gone MIA. The fish skimmer people and the vape crowd are all saying the same thing.
    So... what is the next best thing to a gnome heat exchanger for a 19mm fitting? I absolutely refuse to use my mobius for combustion (as I don't combust anymore) and would still like to use it for vaping.
    I have the cones, it's the heat exchanger part I'm not lacking. Bummed out... any thoughts?

    how about a vapocane, or I bet you could find a glass blower who could make one for you.

    Thanks clouded vision, I wasn't aware of the vapocane. I'm going to try one out.

    Why no VG/lotus?

    Well, neither of those are all glass (unless there's a glass lotus I'm not aware of?), and there is potential to inhale whatever contaminants may remain coming out of the lighter with the vapor genie.

    The only vape I can think of that's directly comparable to the gnome is the above mentioned vapocane.

    If it doesn't need to be all glass, then I'd think the lotus could be a very good replacement.

    Or even the supreme if you can get your hands on one, I don't think they're being made anymore.
