    Here's something to take the place of stainless steel screens and the need for a grinder.

    Thinking a shorty for sure and something in between the shorty & long stem.

    Thank you @Copacetic

    Glad to have some alternative solutions and appreciate everyone's support.

    @utekai I'm just curious as to where you are seeing all of the Grasshopper marketing efforts?

    I have some news on the stems I showed previously a page or two back with glass screens. For the joints, we'll be using Schott for the supplier and there should be no wobbling issues. Length 68-70mm (same as current short stem) and 97mm for a medium, I don't think I'll pursue the long length.

    Would love to hear what interested parties think about these possibilities. Also, any interest in making some of these Schott jointed stems without the glass screens? Thanks for any and all feedback in advance.

    Cooooool :clap:
    I would personally go for 2 mediums.
    One with screen, one without.
    And one short with screen.

    Beware the length of the joint itself though, as even my stock long stem doesn't fit in my Milaana due to the joint being too long!

    Schott are German right?
    Hopefully they don't just do ISO joints.

    I do note that the glass screen looks quite a bit further from the heater than stock screen distance (I've stuck with stock position and orientation myself).

    I assume that placing the screen within the joint would be impossible?

    Great. Thanks for your continued support!

    Schott is German. 22mm joints are available from them. The screen is further back. I have also stuck with stock position myself on a short stem and stainless steel screen from RBT.

    Placing the screen within the joint is impossible. It would compromise the integrity of the glass on glass seal as well, and if more convex than concave, could create issues with the female (stuck/crack).

    1st off is that I'm a flavor chaser, looking at my AVB in a scope, after using the prototype, the heads are gone and just the stalks remain. In vaping, I never try to brown and cook everything I can off of my meds. I threw the spent ABV into the stock setup to see if it would be something that tasted better after breaking up the prototype stem budlets to inspect via scope.

    I never really need to stir with the Milaana, I'm always turning the stem between hits or even while taking hits. Round 2 in the stock short stem didn't taste very good to me. I do have a workaround in mind for the screen distance issue. I'll share it if it works.

    I'm in for a couple of short stems. This is exactly what I've wanted. As for the ones without the glass screens, I'm not personally interested because they don't offer much that the stock RBT stems don't already have.

    Your stem looks like a great idea, and I also like the idea of a medium stem. I'd be in for at least a medium one, if not short also. Sometimes I am looking for something that is in between the current stem lengths.

    I like to flavour chase for a lot of the day, keeping heat low. Have you been putting in full buds or breaking it into smaller pieces?

    Definitely in.
    I seem to recall the glass "screen" being at the base of the male. I'm a small load kind of guy, would you consider a screen halfway through the Male for closer to the tip hits? My screen is never that deep.

    Breaking off budlets about the diameter of the glass, just a little wider to keep them in place, at least the one at the end preferably.

    Can't put the screen in the male. See my previous post on that. I do have a work around for this but haven't been able to test the theory/concept yet. Stay tuned.

    I've been favoring packing small buds too. much easier to deal with and no noticeable performance difference.

    I think @AJS mentioned this before but the silicone sleeve from a nano stem can be used to pair the Mi with glass. I have been saving the small uncooked pieces of abv that I couldn't get to remain seated in the Mi stem for use with my nano and j hook (seating is naturally a non issue while inverted).

    now that I can run the Mi through my j hook and bubbler, the nano seems even less likely to stick around

    @cannabis.pro count me in for a couple short stems; I'm down for screen in and out.. But we might as well try the ones with screens first :) I'm not sure about this question but if I didn't like how low the screens in your stems were, could I just put an RBT screen on top? Leaving the glass screen under it maybe just creating some draw resistance? Also I think someone else mentioned this but in your pic the screen was lower than I ever set mine. Is there any way you could do stems with the screen higher? Giving a smaller load size? Maybe call them micro dose stems or something.

    ^ @Oogendoogan Thank you for the support!

    I have a solution for microdosing in mind. I don't think the stainless steel RBT screen would be a great idea along with the glass screen, as it could be pretty hard to remove depending on whether it is basket/bucket. There's only one way out, and maybe I'm missing something and I guess basket would be easier to pull out with forceps but bucket could get ugly (I hope I have that setup correct, still learning my baskets and buckets). Might be able to test the micro-dosing solution next week. If it works, I'll post pics, if it fails, then its back to the drawing board.

    Right on man I hope your idea works. I mean the only thing I can think of is to move the screen up a little. Maybe just have an option, small size/large size load on the stems? Like you could just make half and half some with the screen down far and some with the screen a little further up and people could choose? I have no idea how logistics of this would work as I have never dealt with any of this kinda stuff but that may be a simple solution. thanks for the explanation of the screens, I understand you and the lingo with basket/bucket can get annoying haha. I wish you the best of luck and count me in for a stem no matter where the screen is set. A short one like that would be nice for on the go ease.
    Cheers :peace:

    Thank you for the suggestion and encouragement. I will work on a longer curved stem once we have the supply line established and folks are happy with the results from the initial stems.

    Thanks for the support as well! Next week I may be able to test some other prototype pieces to allow micro-dosing and a shortened load, trying two variants on the same hack. Hope to have those pieces next week to try and see if they are a workable solution.

    I'd take a couple of shorts with screens. But I'm very interested in microdosing and would prefer that. Also would love a medium or short gong if you end up making a gong. I just got some beautiful long vongs but I'd like short as well.

    Thanks for the support. We won't have 14mm initially.

    OK, sounds good.

    The solution I have in mind would cut the distance in half between the glass screen and where the material gets placed, the other would shorten that distance even more for microdosing. I'm just not sure the microdosing option will work properly. We'll see how it evolves over the next week or two.

    Thanks to the mods for getting all this glass clutter out of the Milaana thread as well.
