    I have found that square bottles with ribs won't collapse as easily and don't require a support ring.

    Here are some photos of one I just assembled.

    [​IMG]

    Start by carefully cutting off the bottom of a plastic drink bottle (64 oz). The bottle should be big enough so you can fit your entire closed hand inside



    [​IMG]

    Use some sand paper to smooth the sharp edge of the plastic and correct any unevenness.



    [​IMG]

    The key to a well functioning vapor lung is a well made bag. Tape tabs will keep the bag in a well functioning position. Cut a piece of packing tape 5" long and place it 1-3/4" from the closed end of a 1 gallon zipped food storage bag.



    [​IMG]

    Cut 3 more pieces of 5" long tape and position as shown. Place a piece of tape that is 6" long in the very center. Fold each of the pieces of tape in half so that there will be 4 tape tabs that are 3/4" long and the one in the center will be 1-1/4" long.
    Cut the zip part off from the food storage bag.



    [​IMG]

    Cut a piece of tape 3" long and place it on one corner of the open end of the bag. Fold the tape so it closes off that portion of the open end. Place the bottle fully inside of the bag which will allow you to tape the other corner of the open end of the bag with another 3" long piece of tape.



    [​IMG]

    Start pulling the bottle out of the bag. There is a very tight fit between the bag and the bottle now.



    [​IMG]

    Position the bag on the bottle so that it is about 7/8" from the end. The taped corner will fold back onto the bag, so position the bag such that the folded portion is in the center of the bottle when it is taped on.



    [​IMG]

    Before taping the bag to the bottle, it helps to finish taping the bag for the pull tab. Fold the bag starting from the sides so that the tabs align. Cut pieces of tape 3/4" long to make thin strips and tape the tabs together by the sides. Repeat for the other side of the bag.



    [​IMG]

    Now tape the center tab to the 2 outer tabs using more thin strips of tape.



    [​IMG]

    Place one more piece of 6" long tape over the entire tab assembly to tie everything together and provide a pull tab.


    [​IMG]

    Cut some shorter pieces of tape to secure the bag in 4 locations. Tape the corners where the bag folds to hold it in place.


    [​IMG]

    Use one long piece of tape to go all the way around and seal the bag to the bottle. There is no tape inside of the bottle or bag. The vapor only sees the poly inside of the bottle and bag.


    I didn't take a photo of the cap as it would depend on the vaporizer to which you are connecting. In my case, I drilled a 10mm hole for a 10mm glass mouthpiece tube. Start with a small drill bit and then just work your way up in size. After the 3/8" drill bit, I wrapped a 5/16" drill bit with some sand paper and worked on the hole until the 10mm glass tube would just fit. I don't want to use any tape in the vapor path so the hole has to be just right.

    Hope this helps others to enjoy the VL as much as I do.

    1,5 lt water bottles with ring patterns make excellent every day drivers and work flawlessly either with a log or a Solo. My Solo has a normal GonG stem and even with that much resistance the bottle won't collapse easily. Make sure you get one of those 18/14 GonG reducers and stick it to the cap. It makes all the difference in the world during the sessions!!!

    [​IMG]



    Great party lung Alan! I hope you had better luck with the caps. The ones on my ''destroyer'' from the first post were too flimsy to get a reducer stucked in. :p

    EDIT: After a year or more messing with glass I ended up returning to a vapor lung as my daily driver. The sessions are just tastier, more effortless and you can just get the cap with the GonG with you and make a vapor lung anywhere you go. Now, if someone could come up with a collapsible metal or plastic frame that you could stick in a food bag and make an instant vapor lung, that would be sooo interesting! :science:

    I think I should also shoot a vid showing how easy the sessions are with the reducer. All the vids so far make the sessions look cumbersome!

    the vapor lung is amazing. having misplaced my 1,5 bottle i quickly made a new one with a 1l bottle, since it was the only size i had flying around. what shall i say, it was an instant crowd pleaser. no more fuss to introduce the people to the right technique with the mflb. just switch it on, fill it, pass it, enjoy it. :)

    ocasionaly i hook the lung up with a small bong using the mflb wpw, works like a sharm. :)

    For me the Vapor Lung eliminated the need for a big home vape. I get ginormous hits that fog the place just by placing the humble Solo on top of it and without the fuzz and the possible headaches of a restricted draw or a long slow draw... The taste is always amazing and I get to control the temp of the hits much better than with the bubblers and bongs cause my hand is doing it! :lol:

    I made one real quick this morning out of a Seagrams 7 bottle. It's kind of sloppy and I'm gonna redo it, but the thing I thought was cool is, you will notice that the 18mm male fits snugly right into the drip spout.

    menz as ugly as some thought it was I made one and it worked. I know if I can do it anyone can. I suggest don't follow the very specific instructions above as I can't follow instructions and that would make it harder for me. I don't even understand them and can't follow those pics. That being said it is a great way for most to do it I am just backwards.

    What kind of a vapor lung-Solo connection are u using mate? You need to get a good seal and the bottle has to be stiff enough to take the suction pressure without being sucked in.

    I used a broken downstem as a 14mm adaptor for the lung (in the cap). Then I have a bit of SSV tubing which fits right over the stock stem. To make the seal I have a SSV waterpipe adaptor attached to the other end of the tubing.

    The bottle seams sturdy enough, although i may try to find another. Do you have to pull hard to milk it? I couldnt get either my old one (other post) or my new better one from today to work. I just went back to using my bong

    I have found different draws to have different effects. For me, it's always Solo to 7 and hard pull with the lung to drop the pressure in the stem and suck the vapor out of the herbs as efficiently as possible...

    ah, that might be it. I havent tried blasting through a bowl on 7 yet, and rarely did hard pulls. Ill give it a go later. I was using 4-6 when I tried, as those temps milk my bong easily while preserving the flavour

    Our lungs can't do shit next to a vapor lung... :p I can spend a Hot Pod load in two pulls and the hits are just overwhelming for most people! As for the Solo, if it wasn't for the lung it would be history for me...

    I havent tried this yet as Im low on weed, because I feel I'll loose more vapor/efficiency by
    using a whole bowl on 7 due to the slight conduction created by the Solo

    Edit: I enjoy starting at low temps with the direct draw for flavour, then cranking it up and using my bong attachment for giant smooth rips

    Glad to find another one enjoying the merits of vapor lungs! :tup: Are the hits so comfortable with 1,75ml bottles that you need a bigger one? I watched myself starting with a 2 lt bottle and found my sweet spot at 1,5 lt water bottles... And I make 2 hits out of every bottle.

    i do the lung in one and yes they are satisfying with the lung i just like to f**ck about so why not have a bigger bottle with the solo and a 1.75l bottle i can pull 3 + lungs be for i dont like the taste or it stops producing vapor ild like a lung that i can pull one lung and kill the bowl then try hit that in one :ko:

    the lung is fucking amazing tho fucks me up making me want a cano after trying this i think bags would be me all over

    Been on the vapor lung for a little bit now. It's a nice change up for sure. Using my UD at 12.8v and it makes huge clouds with zero combustion no matter how slow I pull. Gives you a big hit without all the loss of oxygen from hittin the bong so long. Anyways just givin up some love for the vapor lung! Keep on pullin those bags people!

    Try taking a pic of the next try if it doesn't work and we'll see together what goes wrong. ;)

    Getting the bag sealed to the bottle well is very important. Any leaks will reduce the effectiveness. Holes in the bag can also hurt the operation. You should be able to put your finger over the hole in the cap and not be able to pull the bag out of the bottle.

    Nice NF, how was it so easy to take that stem in and out? If there is a tight seal shouldn't it be difficult?

    The stem is a PV GonG stem and it goes into a 18/14 GonG reducer that is pressed into the bottle cup. Plastic tech with glass fittings. Very practical... :)
