Just got an 18mm female to 18mm male carb with cap. This changes things. Great job Mike! Thanks!
What's the best address to email him at ? I tried here at FC but haven't had a response even though he's been on the board.
firstname.lastname@example.org worked for me.
probably best to go to OGB website and there is a "contact us" button to use.
I have several pieces and they are very nice. His site lists stock pieces but he can modify/customize to fit your needs
Thanks. I want the orbiter attachment that he made for zerorespect.
Good Morning @little maggie ,
You can order Mike's "Vape Adapter" directly from his website. It is essentially the angled 14mm Male adapter he sells here:
However, I had him make the 9mm "vape/whip" tube half as long for portability and well for shear clumsiness sake. You can just add a comment to your order and he will customize one to suit you if so desired.
I had him also make me a flattened mouthpiece from the same 9mm glass tubing the Vape Adapter uses. Changed the whole Magic Flight Orbiter set out and it makes for a much nicer session (IMO).
I cannot say how much I recommend getting one of these carb adapters for anything that you invert a vape for. While you don't want to park the vape in anything, having to remove it constantly caused problems with the bowl cover coming off. The added carb makes the pieces so much more enjoyable that I'll use these types more than I had before. If you use any of these types, this really improves the experience. Plus, I have noticed in my couple Chinese pieces that the joints aren't always that perfect. In this piece in particular the EVO would stick a bit. Comes out Mike's piece smoothly every time!
Wow, looks excellent!
I ordered a 14mm for my orbiter, and a 18mm for my fc ufo and fc 187-v2.
Can hardly wait, no more blisters on my fingers from lifting the Enano
I also ordered a vape adapter for the orbiter because the original tubing with the orbiter feels to tight for me to use with the draw restriction the Enano already has.
@Oregonglassblower Can you do 24/40 joints?
@gaseous_clay i agree completely about the carb adapter. Just got one and it makes everything so much easier. Really enjoying this setup right now.
@cybrguy i copied your setup pretty much except the claisen and I'm loving the low profile of OGB's.
I have been looking at getting one of these for a while. I usually use a claisen, but there are situations where the claisen is just too much and this guy would be better...
Question Added: Does the 10mm plug seem at all restrictive when you clear it? The claisen I am using is 18mm and the airflow is nice for clearing, but I don't know how much restriction in flow a 10mm would provide. I don't have anything 10mm to play with.
@cybrguy It's not the big blast of pulling an 18mm slide, but it's still very close. I don't find that it's restrictive and while I thought about requesting a 14mm carb (if that's even possible) I like the size, airflow, and while it clears maybe just a hair slower, overall it's great.
Edit to add: for science, I did a series of tests pulling the 10mm carb and clearing three times, then doing the same with the 18mm joint. With no real science behind this I say the 10mm air path seems 10-20% less flow, which is still just fine. I would recommend this to anyone.
Thanks. I think I may go 14mm when I order it, but 18 would be too big for an adapter that size I would think. Mike uses 14mm plugs elsewhere so I'm sure they're available.
Thanks for the testing and followup. I may not bother changing his default.
A week ago I inquired about a couple custom mouthpieces—got them in the mail today! that's amazing... thanks @Oregonglassblower
It fits well and does a great job cooling off my Firewood vapor!
I've been wanting to get a stem like the one pictured above, but with the extra carb hole facing down
It would be so awesome to use that with my do 20 and wax pens!!!
Or maybe 18mm male to 14mm female adapter that stands 3"1/2 tall, and has a 45 degree angle to it. This way, i can just pop it on my bubbler and slip my pen into the 14mm female
Please post a picture of the FW one.
I assume i am about to purchase this but before i do i need to ask if the SSV whip tubing will fit snug/properly with this adapter? http://www.oregonglassblower.com/18mm-Female-Vape-Adapter-18fv90d.htm
I bought a few adapters from OGB recently. A 18mm m/f, an 18mm m/m, and an 18 mm m/f with a 14mm carb. The latter was just a slight customization of what is offered on @Oregonglassblower's website. All I did was request what I was after in the comments field when making the purchase. OGB was kind enough to make the size change without any additional charge.
I love all the adapters I've gotten from OGB. Everything just works great. I love this carbed adapter. I bought it in anticipation of my Zion's arrival. However, I just find that it makes the vaping experience better and different for all my vapes. I've really enjoyed it with the Herbie and Underdog, and can't wait to use it with my EVO, and of course, the Zion when it arrives.
Just wanted to add, the carb adapter is one of those things you never realize you need, then after using can't live without. It works great and I use on every piece now that I can.
@TheDarkOne i agree completely. My wife liked it so much she confiscated it and told me to buy a new one.
Hey everyone, just a heads up. i finally go a new source for quality 18.8mm Male US short taper fittings.
Those that have been waiting for short taper adapters just go ahead and order then leave a message about the fittings or you can hit me up with a PM and i will get back with you.
Mike, I made an order on ArtFire for two 18mm WPA water to whip glass adapter, I need them both to be able to fit DBV/SSV whips. I sent you an email through ArtFire.
My email has my order number.
Resolved, we emailed. 9.55mm.
Quoting my original post. ^^
Thank you @Oregonglassblower Mike, I received my two glass pieces, they look and fit great!
