    It was listed as 'rare' I've no idea how 'rare' but the guy seems genuine enough and has over 300 species on sale.
    Who knows what else he may have @Diggy Smalls.

    Forgot to post this M tip, Induction and a half bowl of kief, changed the out look on the day.
    I had to finish it later.

    It still really amazes me how different other people's tolerance is compared to myself. Just one of those hits would take me to a 10 for at least 30-45mins.

    How many of those hits did you eke out of that half load in the end?

    As always, stunning work bud.

    Thanks @turk it took a couple of attempts to get it right, two that day and one the previous, so all in all a messy 48 hours.

    @GreenHopper no idea mate, checking back on my fone camera for timings and it looks like it was 3 hours later when I went back and finished the bowl.

    I'd say half as many hits maybe a couple more but no where near as big, and to be fair I was happy of that.

    The kief disappears and leaves a brown hash type substance. Not soap bar proper hash.
    I collect and press it into one lump then flatten and break up for more surface area and re load it.

    How's the collecting going your end?

    No idea = KIEF WORKING :lol:

    Still that was a lot of tokes, probably my entire evenings worth in one session there.

    I'm impressed with the amount the kief + VC combo can kick out, I'm impressed your brain can handle it and I'm loving the Dre in the background ;) Had to kick back with the headphones last night and Deltron 3030 after finishing off the last of an old stash.

    My collection is going really slowly, the Super Weapon 2 from ID has a really fine mesh so it doesn't collect all that much. My hope it though that what it does collect will be much higher quality that the cheap grinders that let a fair amount of plant matter through the screen.

    I just got a batch of Blueberry Muffins and it looks much more frosty than the Blueberry I was using before so fingers crossed.

    Even though Del is a little off tonally and is obviously a bit too high I love this live version, the trombone player is just having the best time ever.

    The last few days have been spent finalising my vacation and discussing some future business plans with a chap in the UK.
    Nice guy and we seem to have hit it off, common ground other than MJ helps and he lives in an area I used to many years ago.
    I know the route down to his part of the world like the back of my hand, it's a steady three and a half hour drive or an hour and a half motorcycle ride.;)

    I've been waiting on a couple of things thru the post and it doesn't get any better than this, really helps reinforce the true romance of being a turner.
    [​IMG]
    For those of you who have already, and for anyone else who will receive a parcel from me in the future those black vinyl caps sit nice and snug on 18650 batteries so don't throw them away re-use them for a bit of Li-ion safety.

    Got asked to do an 18mm with an MP, the diameter doesn't really allow for a smooth transition from the joint to the MP. I figured the only way for it not to look all Nicki Mina.
    [​IMG]
    was to lose the top of the joint
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    It's a polyester blank that chips or ribbons as and when it pleases. Not a nice turn especially as the first MP wasn't playing the game.

    What seems a long time ago, 2nd gen tip ago, I made a VC pipe and it worked fine. My modded torches made spinning a breeze, but it would have been awkward with out one.

    Now we have @Pipes Induction Heater it's made the pipe a more viable option so I cobbled together the old bowl and used the Walnut open twist stem just to see how it was going to work.
    It's a really rough throw together but it proved the point. 10mm SS tube with a 1mm wall holds the tip.
    The condenser is threaded and screws into the bottom part of the 10mmSS.
    Black Palm and Walnut
    [​IMG]
    Black Palm is an odd material, the black parts break, splinter and get thrown out as you turn it. The brown is almost like a sand or sponge.
    [​IMG]

    One customer who made a pipe enquiry had an 'oh yeah' moment and is going to try and make an adapter from a wine cork. So if anyone else wants to try it there is a cheap and easy way.
    Be careful buying pipes as they may have pieces which are glued together, the long bent stems are often pieces of wood glued together and shaped after.

    This is my second heat application, the first tokes were lite and tasty. If I hadn't been mullered from the previous attempts to get a video done I would have remembered to 'keep the tip upright at all times'.

    I've combust a couple of times with it. Once the contents get heated they can fall on to the clicker so it takes a bit of getting used to, but it works.

    Oh I've always wanted a bigger pipe version of a vapcap, but I didn't know how it would spin to heat it. It totally didn't occur to me the induction heater would make that a non-issue. I'll have to think about this...

    Also it looks amazing, especially that stem.

    I like the stem part @StormyPinkness, it was nice as just a stem.
    Induction heater is a great addition and I know from having spoken with @Pipes they have been a roaring success.

    Hey @phattpiggie, been a long time lurker & admirer of your amazing craftsmanship & your truly humble nature. I just like to look at the pics posted here and in the VC thread by your proud customers and friends. I'm in the queue with RV and would like to talk further with you when the time draws near.

    ^+100% agreement w/you on the previous photo, but "nice" just doesn't work. I love that stem, I NEED one like it & I've not purchased a VC yet! I'm not even sure what to call this acquisition syndrome... I am well and truly screwed. Anyway, not sure why I felt you needed to know all this but I'm happy you are doing what you love. It comes through in every piece I've seen. Oh and have a killer holiday!!

    Many thanks @pxl_jockey, I know that the stuff I turn is very unique in this market but that doesn't make me a 'master turner' or a 'stem god'.

    I'm just a regular bloke doing something I enjoy and I will remain humble thru it all.
    Humble and open. I'm more than happy to show you all how I go about things and I know how much this has been appreciated.

    The FC community is a pleasure to be part of and the support I've been shown by customers, manufacturers and retailers has blown me away.

    I've had a great first year and I can't thank everyone here enough for this.

    I'm also on the Vapor Asylum and Instagram and I've been attracting new customer and new contacts so it's all getting busier.
    IG has other stuff on as it's really convenient to post there so drop in and take a look.

    Pxl feel free to contact me anytime. That goes for anyone. I try and keep good communications going with all my customers or future customers.

    I do slip up sometimes and I apologise for that but I'm only human and as I said to someone last night if you don't hear from me then please 'pester' me.

    As for my vacation I'm looking forward to it no matter what.
    Spain is going to be on high alert but the authorities are well versed in this kind of thing and when it comes down to it they've got the right attitude.

    Suspected terrorists are arrested and so they should be.
    Too many countries pull the Human Rights card when it comes to this.

    Fuk terrorists they have no rights and should never be protected in any way.

    They will all be caught or shot, inshallah.

    @phattpiggie I just gotta ask...do you have a page that shows your different heaters, describes each one a little bit, and gives a cost including shipping? I've read thru a lot of pages and now just sort of need the bottom-line info.

    Thanks :)

    @fcmember I've only got the one modified heater so I can't help you there. @Pipes is the heater man.

    I've taken mine to pieces and changed it about a few times, a bit like my Homegrown Log.
    The internals of that have been in 4 different bodies.

    @phattpiggie I posted in the ask fc forum that I'd like to buy a glass stand like the one below, but with multiple 18mm females. @just_the_flu turns glass bowls he has upside down and uses them as stands which is a good idea and what I'm totally doing short term. He also suggested a wooden solution and I was hoping to ask you about it. I'm wondering about a wooden case/stand to hold multiple glass stands. Ideally I'd like them to tip less and be secure, though I'm sure they'd move around some still. I'd love to hear what you think. Now that I'm typing it out I'm less sure of the idea...

    Edit: Some one suggested one of these after I had already posted this:
