    you can clean it with a bit of steel wool. I get mine back to shiny silver with a little scrubbing. Iso soaks don't seem to do much for that dark film on the screen. I did let mine get pretty dirty, and noticed a bit of a diminished vapor, so I cleaned it and all was well again.

    Glad you are back on board Xchadb! Hope it's smooth sailing in that legal state of yours...

    Today was a unique Pax experience. I am going to the city tonight to meet a good friend of mine who i've been combusting with ever since 2003. He only comes around maybe once a year, or so. Well, I loaded up a nice fat oven, shoved it in my pocket before work, so I'd have it, and then go straight down.

    In my car, my wife and I smell like kinda the smell when a blunt is smoked in the car. I'm like, no one is smoking. this is weird. But we smell it the whole way. I get to work, and my friend is like I smell Ash, what the hell are you eating. At which point, I realize, oh fuck, my Pax has been on in my pocket, heating, this whole 40 minutes or so. So I go outside, look at the pax, nice dark brown, uniformly heated. Couldn't believe that to be honest. LOL.

    So it turns out, the Pax must have activated in my house, and I was walking around all morning with a Pax active in my pocket.

    But the shitty part is I gotta see my friend tonight. So I left work a wee bit early, am charging up my Pax. If it's not ready, I might have to take the WISPR. Oh well, you live you learn. Still not sure how it happened. LOL

    Edit: Actually, my Pax smells like complete shit now. I tried cleaning it with rubbing alcohol but I doubt its gonna fix it. Oh well

    Hey Menz, it was a pleasure buddy. I'm glad you enjoyed the Pax as well as the dabs. Those dabs are intense, but once I get my hands on some wax I'll have to get you over here again with Dreamerr and newVapor420. We'll have a big old session get together!

    The discussion about THC and CBN was off-topic here so I merged four posts into another thread in Vaporization Discussion called some info on THC, CBD, CBN effects. Carry on.

    It's been a while since I posted here....
    My Pax also has a "golden" colored screen, with darker areas.. but it works like a champ.
    After all of the rigamarole, I am still using and enjoying my Pax.
    I use it to vape for two sessions a day, and that has become my cleaning routine as well... two sessions and do the deed of Iso buff!
    I will try some "0000-steel wool" to buff as suggested by jam should performance diminish.
    It can go through a healthy serving of meds in short order.. still...
    ...A very convenient vape to have in the portable lineup!

    Took my Pax to a concert last night for the first time (Dr. Dog - they absolutely killed), which is the main reason why I bought the Pax in the first place. After this experience, I can definitely say that I made the right choice.

    I packed a tight keif sandwich and when the show began in earnest, I started her up on low. I got good hits, slight vapor just like I wanted, but definite and discernible results. I nursed it on low and did the series of hits - pocket - series of hits thing a few times. Sometime during the show, I switched to medium. I wanted to stir but worried about dropping the lid, so I left it alone. Still, I nursed that puppy all throughout the two hour show, and it kept me high the entire time, and I don't think anyone around me suspected anything at all. I was able to just keep it tucked in my hand, so it just looked like I was putting my hand to my mouth.

    After the show, in the car, I stirred the oven and turned it to high and got another three solid hits! I couldn't believe it. It was absolutely brilliant for this purpose. I am very happy Pax owner right now. :D

    A completely full oven is just what it says: completely full. If you follow Ploom's advice, you fill it right to the top, pack it down tightly, bring it back up to the top, pack down again, repeat until you can't get any more in there. At this point you will have stuffed as much as .5 g in there. This is supposed to give you the thickest vapour, but you'd never know that from me. I never do this. It's a great way yo use up your stash really really fast.

    My boss wanted to try the Pax so i brought it to work yesterday. At the end of the day, busted it out, and showed him the magic of the vapor. its been a week + since ive used my Pax... i was getting some thick hits, though he wasnt. told him its all in the draw. so, i was kind and left the Pax for him to use for a coupla days....

    I know it's hard to believe but I swear I didn't fake the pics where I loaded 0.78g (or maybe 0.68 I'll have to find it again)
    Too much for me though, normally I'm 0.3-0.4

    The great thing for me with my Pax is that I can pack the oven as light or as heavy as I want and I still get medicated. I will pack a half an oven for the day use and at night i will switch to a indica strain and just cover the bottom of the oven, pack it down, and it takes care of my evening needs. I tried filling the oven all the way full and I used it for about 2 days but if I do that I can't get my evening meds without combusting as my Pax is my only vape for the moment.

    Mendo, if I were you I would get my Pax back! Tell your boss to get his own! Besides, he is you boss and makes more than you, he can afford it. But very cool, you can vape with your boss. I'm kinda jealous. :rockon:

    I was looking around online after a sesh with the Pax and found these vape tools (at vapetool.com, go figure) which I promptly ordered. I'll let you guys know how they work out. I hope they fit the oven.

    These have been mentioned many times before in this thread.

    They are the perfect fit for the Pax.

    Amazon sells them as well. When they are in stock.

    These things do look cool and everything but ive just been using a two inch nail with about a quarter inch head which works fine and as far as i can figure there's nothing this tool can do that my nail cant.. just my two cents

    I use the back of a pen to pack and a "Pax Tool" paperclip on the mouthpiece to empty stubborn bowls

    Yeah, my boss is down... I have no problem lending it for a few days. i recently got a SSV that is now my daily device. I am absolutely loving the SSV and now i've semi-retired the pax... the Pax is now solely my portable-on-the-go unit. (sshhh...whipser)...**the Pax is so stealth**...

    I use my finger or the lid to pack down the oven. Both seem to work very well.

    My little finger is my main Pax tool. My hands are like asbestos :D

    Edit: I'm loving party mode. I find my Pax slips into sleep mode during warm up sometimes, and this just helps it keep chugging along.

    The Vape Tool Mini Tool should be sold with the Pax it's so perfect for it.

    And don't forget to use a thick rubber band along with the tool for convieneint storage that doubles as a oven lid locker!! (and turn your pax into a ninja turtle too lol)
