    I am trying to get a GG joint bowl together for my wychwood and watertools. I found these... They look like they might fit my needs... http://www.planetvape.ca/solo-ground-glass-on-glass-adapter.html but im not sure on the measurments...

    Has anyone used a solo stem with a wychwood?

    Can you give me the inner diameter and outer diameter of the bowl if you happen to have one of these?

    Is there any other options that someone might have stumbled upon?

    I don't have them in front of me, but the Solo stem is wider than the WW GonG bowl that I use. I don't see how it could work with the WW heat port.

    Have you contacted Cookie about one of his GonG bowls?

    :peace:

    I sent him a message a while back here and didnt here back, but ive not formally contacted him through his site about it yet . I was just going to see if they would work cause I may be ordering from there anyway.

    But thank you for the fast reply. So, no go solo! Not even your stinky jedi can save you now! Ho ho ho ho ho... Ho ho ho ho ho...

    Actually, the WW heater port will slide in to a Solo stem. It does function although I wouldn't say it's ideal.

    I shortly discussed this with CDS some time ago in the WW thread, just search before you ask next time :tup:

    Just because it can slide in doesn't mean it can do the job. (I just wrote and deleted about a dozen really crass large vagina jokes that I didn't see fit to post on this family thread. But I digress.....)

    I would say "less than ideal" is an understatement, with all due respect to the venerable OTA, and less-than-venerable CDS.

    Cool, I just learned a new word again (venerable), thanks Stu :tup:

    & I guess I just keep my mouth shut and respect your wish to keep it 'G' rated on that striking comparison.. :rofl:

    It's an understatement though, correct. I only tried it myself because the original GonG WW stem won't slide around the heater port, which is a big downfall imo. Anyway, one of the most popular HI stems actually functions a little like a WW paired with a Solo stem in that the heater port slides in to the glass stem with a bit or room to spare (not as much as you'd get with a Solo stem/WW combination). You just shuff the heater port right up against the herbs in a loaded bowl with this design to make a seal, instead of making a seal between the vape and stem directly like with most designs. Assuming you have one too; you do something similar with this WW stem on the right here in this picture:

    I'm not sure what my point was right now though, so I just hope I made it already & someone picked up on it :rolleyes:

    Oh, I understand. I just wouldn't want to vape feeling like I have to strap a paddle to my ass to keep from falling in, you know?

    There goes the G rating, I guess....

    No G rating here with my sailor mouth. Yea, thats what I do OTA. And the simple glass stem with silicone tubing to hold it together fits fine in a 14 fitting, but it is a PITA to clean. I am just waiting for the day that thin glass stem shatters in my hand. I won my wych in october... Had I be buying it I would have gone all GG and at the time I had no extra cash to add it on. Im prolly just gonna see if I can get one mailed over the pond after my planetvape order arrives.

    On that same tune though... A male 18mm GG fitting will actually fit up in the wych to the point it seals completely... Im looking for function, not "just" a short cut. So even if it fits and,kinda works with finess, not quite what im looking for...

    But IMO this topic was worth a lil discussion here, so any reading elsewhere might have still resulted in a question posted here, regardless of how much or little has been read elsewhere.

    :p

    Yeah, I know what you mean, those are pretty fragile sons of bitches.

    Where are you located FarS?

    Just in case you're in Australia; he hasn't got a website up or anything yet since we're just beta-testing, but the current GonG stem for the Hot Pod Hazy makes are almost exactly the same (the finish on the HP ones is a tad smoother but that's it) as the ones Cookie sells, so you could send him a message to see if he has enough of them to send you one/some. They are made of a very common stem though, you might be able to find a US dealer for them as well if that's where you're at. They are pretty long originally, but if you're a bit handy you can just cut off what you don't need, flame polish it a bit and voila.
