    Anyone tried to adapt their PNWT to a bubbler w/ removable mouth piece?

    I'm considering trying to pair the PNWT to a Vapor Glass Bubbler from PipesDaddy.
    I'm thinking just add a 14mm male to 14mm male 45* angle adapter, then the PNWT.
    It should work similar to a 'bent neck'?

    I'm just not sure if the sizing would pair well? Is the PNWT too big for something like this micro bubbler? Is that bubbler too small/light (not heavy enough) for this kinda setup? Maybe a 14M to 14M straight adapter; would there be enough clearance between the PNWT and the vape??

    Hmmm... Now that I think about it, the PNWT probably wouldn't function well at that 45* angle..?
    Edit: 32.5* ?? 22.5* ??
    I'll have to wait for my PNWT and get some time with it before I can decide some of this I suppose.


    If you've done this already with any bubbler, I'd be curious to see/hear how it turned out.

    I have done this with my 2011 BC showerhead bubbler. It was running parallel to my LSV ie at a 90deg angle. My face was quite close to the LSV so comfort wasn't top of the list but it was extremely smooth and not a huge loss in flavour which surprised me.
    As for using it at a 45 deg angle as long as you had enough water for it to tip, why not?

    An adapter shaped like this one might give you a little bit more clearance and leave the PNWT vertical.

    That bubbler is an 18mm joint with a 14mm mouthpiece from PD. you would need and 14mm to 18mm adapter I believe.

    Something like letsallmelt suggested will work great for pnwt and pd vb combo. Just make sure it is 14mm male on both ends as the pd vb is a 14mm female same as the pnwt.

    Thanks! I was actually looking for one just like that last night. I knew they existed. Just couldn't find the 14M>14M.
    And I bet oregonglassblower could do that one as well.

    Got my PNWT from theyoyokid1 yesterday in the mail. Took 7 business days from ordering to get to my place in Australia.

    Shipping and handling charge was $30. The label showed $12.75 shipping charge, so that's a substantial handling charge, but $80 is still good and there are no other choices to Australia.

    The piece itself has some defects on the inner parts that won't affect performance.

    Haven't used it yet as haven't got my solo yet and don't have an adaptor for my T1.

    I love using my Smooth-Flow on my T1. It cools and moisturises the vapour sufficiently, without killing the flavour. Hoping this piece will do the same for my Solo.

    Instead of putting the PNWT in a ziplock bag with 91% iso to shake around and clean, if I filled up a glass and just let it sit there and soak for a few days would that possibly remove the Pinnacle logo? (hoping so)

    I'm not sure what the logo is made up on the pnwt, but if its not sandblasted into the glass, I've read others using CLR to remove labels on glass. Not sure if iso would do it alone.

    It's sandblasted.

    I agree, it looks annoying in photos, but in practice you probably wont even notice in.

    I use this with my HA, and really love it. The logo on the glass doesn't bother me at all.

    Only the first 200 or so made (IIRC) were sandblasted, the rest have a baked on white label. I haven't seen a user report a successful removal of the label yet, patiently waiting.

    Ordered 10/14/2013 (Mon), its out for delivery today (10/23/2013).
    But, they did have a 'backorder' or supply issue last week.. Otherwise I was reading 2-4 days ship time accross the USA.

    Update: PNWT received. I did some unboxing picture taking for those interested in how its packaged. Click the links for the box/packaging pics.

    Initial reaction: Smaller than expected (not a negative IMO). I see one very very minor imperfection in the glass that you have to really look for to see. There were a few water stains on the perc, can even see them some in pic 08. I did a thorough rinse before using. Fits my MZ nylon stem pretty well with no modifications. Fits the lips/mouth well, and I'm one who always feels awkward using a large mouth bong. I honestly thought the feel/fit to the mouth would be too weird even before receiving it. I like the low[er] drag of this piece, and it seems to roast a stem very efficiently. I'm not one for 'huge vapor cloud kinda rips', but for the [very] slow drag technique it works very well for me. Nice smooth, cooled hits. I'll have to use it more to get an idea for flavor. I was too excited to focus on taste upon first use, and I'm a '1 hit and I'm done' kinda guy, at least most the time. Oh, on another note, the Pinnacle logo is applied to the glass, these are not sand blasted. I would have been OK w/ sandblasted logo actually. The white color 'pops' too much for my tastes. Oh, and with that much water (which I think is actually high) I was getting no water in my mouth/lips, so I'm impressed w/ the splash guard and how it holds very little to no water on the edge, it drains well. Easy to fill, I just poured in water from the top opening.

    Hello all,


    I've just got my pnwt today and i'm happy with it it so far!

    I've got a question for you guys who are using the pvhe gong.

    1)do you have hard time lifting the pnwt from the gong , especially if the part is wet/moist?
    2)what have you done that lessens this stickiness

    Maybe i'm just not doing it right....:shrug:
    any input would be appreciated!

    The pieces I am seeing here are called, 14.4 mm Micro-shower Water Tool Attachment, correct? Just want to make sure I am getting the correct one for $50. Also, what might I need to fit this onto my Dr Dabber pen?

    Thanks!

    that is correct, unable to answer tha pen question though. as long as it seals that 14mm connection you should be okay, maybe even some high temp tape to make a ghetto seal, if ghetto is your ambition.
