    Hello Arizers, question regarding the basket screens. Is there any way to keep them from falling out? Asking for a friend. ☺️

    Yes there is. Tell your friend to get a neodymium magnet and to paste it on top of the glass elbow... hehehe j/k.

    the idea is to make the basket wider than it is already... so, grab the basket as in the photo and press lightly and slowly until it feels it's getting wider. insert in the elbow and it should feel like there is resistance going in. I have to do it every couple of weeks because i do a lot of elbow packing and every time i pack it it shapes back up into it's not so wide shape. but I just press it again and voila!

    Looks like Arizer has a repair center in the states, so I won't have to ship over the border. Just waiting for the shipping address. They would not tell me (or they did not know) what the code er4 means. So I am sending it in. If it is the heating unit it is covered. If it is the circuit board or other problem, it is not.
    The worst case would be buying a replacement for $119.99.

    Thank you! Im sure my friend will be very grateful. I’m sure my friend will be very happy to know this little trick! Oh I love this thing . Watching my soap operas, with a nice cold beer, and a great Vape with great meds.

    Love this desktop. Tried the Volcano (the OG!) recently and I was kind of underwhelmed. A big part of me just kept reaching for a whip. This thing does it all and does it well.

    I prefer this over my volcano. I think the taste is better and I love the remote and variable speeds...and whip... though I will say if I was a medical user or had bad dexterity, the Volcano Classic all the way. The Q just isn't as efficient as extracting all the meds in the herb

    Don't know if you got to catch the vid on YouTube, but 420vapezone did a review on the 14mm mod. For economy in the EQ, can't be beat.

    If you didn't, I can try to find and post it.

    EDIT: Found it!

    After 1 week of using the EQ in its stock configuration, I am very pleased with it. For me, use of the whip is perfect. I keep a cap on the mouthpiece and basically just take a draw when the mood strikes. The DDmod kit looks good, but since I don't use water pieces and will likely only use the whip, I'm not sure how much my usage would be improved by it. I'll read through the dedicated thread for more info. For now, I give my highest rating to the EQ.

    *I'm editing this post as I read along the thread

    Propz for having an EQ dedicated post.

    I would like to ask a couple of questions. In all of them bear in mind that, although the @DDave seem fantastic, they are out of reach for now, so vanilla EQ here.

    I get that I should only take the displayed temperature as an indication, and test the results accordingly. Currently testing elbow packing for the first time :nod:

    Preheating time is one of my concerns, I can use touch to distinguish different temperatures of the bowl, up to the point when it just burns if you touch it. Would aiming at achieving a stable bowl temperature be "the best" indicator of being ready to begin extraction ?

    How much do you preheat, and if you use mods: how much would you preheat without mods ?

    Regarding the temperature set points.. most posts in this thread speak of temps much lower than the maximum temp the EQ can set (260 ºC). Why would one use lower temps ? (I guess that there are references on this, so you can just point me to them)

    I ran into this post because I was looking to use the EQ for decarbing, but I am concerned about running the fan so long. @DDave post detailing his routine give me even more hope.

    The set 200 ºC proposed by @DDave are a bit higher than the usual recommended decarb temp. I'm guessing this is just the set point at which he found a good actual temperature in the bowl.

    Do you think that I can adapt this technique with a higher temp set point in the EQ to compensate for the bowl not being modded ? If so, which temp ?

    With the stock bowl, would "no fan" still produce a good decarbing ? I am planning to stir several times through the process.

    Thanks in advance

    YES!!!!!

    The EQ temperature display, unless by some fluke, will never show the temperature in the bowl. Easily and cheaply verifiable, simply get an inexpensive meat probe thermometer, put in bowl, set EQ temp, turn on fan, wait for temp reading to climb and stabilize. It will never match the display temp.


    Good luck in this effort. I just made a batch of capsules, two of which got me through a Queensryche/Scorpions concert - lit like a Xmas tree.

    Unfortunately, no. There is much more involved here than simply bumping up the temperature.

    Glass thickness, airpath shape, screen mesh, etc...

    Never use the fan during a decarb event. Even the slightest air movement will result in more of your goodies ending up stuck to the glass instead of on your herb.

    Probably Arizer, it's a Canadian company.

    new member. I've been using a flowermate swift pro as my go to. I'm thinking of switching to the extreme q and I'm interested in the Ddave kit.

    Can someone check my thinking here about this being a good choice for my use.

    issues currently: harsh throat feel sometimes, I sometimes want to just take zero resistance style drags, 15-20 second or longer style drags can be annoying

    desires:
    -convection
    -option for "on demand" style usage. sometimes I like just chilling watching tv and take a drag here or there over the course of hours. it seems like I'd be able to do this with elbow packing, have it heating, pop on the elbow take a drag or two, pop it off. am I understanding this right and would be able to use like this?

    -efficiency-I want very efficient material usage, sometimes I almost just microdose, this is how I came across ddave mod and saw 420vapezone talk about his kit and was very interested in this. I love max extraction, but kinda throug multiple uses of on demand

    -I don't want to suck hard-the idea of whip with fan assistance or using a bag is very appealing. I've never used a bag before, but the EQ seems like the best of both worlds. Is there a way to fashion it to use the volcano mouthpiece valve thing? I feel like this mouthpiece would give a premium bag experience.

    -cooler - seems like any of these options of use wouuld be cooler than my swift pro right now.

    an added thing is I was almost about to buy a essential oil diffuser to use just to make my place smell nice generally...seems like i could use this to that end too, no? :)

    i've been searching around the last few days and think this is the direction i'm headed, but figured I'd finallly become a member after lurking for a while and see if I'm missing something in my line of thinking.

    also if @DDave wants to hit me up with a noob coupon before I order a primo v3 glass filter kit, that'd be cool too ;)

    On demand will work fine like that, although the glass elbow is likely to get hot so you'll want some kind of stand or rest to keep it in the air, both to stop it burning anything and to stop it touching anything cold and breaking.

    Extremely efficient with the mod.

    You can adapt the volcano thing but I wouldn't bother, you can buy 'bite valves' for water bladders and fit those on your eq mouthpieces for a LOT less money. Personally, bags are rarely used, it starts getting stale after a few minutes.

    You get an aromatherapy glass cup attachment, fill that with herb, slap it on top and boom, nice smells, it has a hole in the base for air flow however so it wouldn't work with oil, any kind of dry herb or potpourri will work. You can leave it sat on a gentle heat for mild fragrance or turn the fan on to scent the room before someone comes in.

    Greetings Friend, easier for me to break up large posts and please forgive my delayed response. Crazy busy!

    Welcome!

    All my EQ kits offer choice of Water Pipe Adapters. Complete kits offer both 14mm & 18mm Male adapters.
    FC discovery vaping through warm-hot water is very soothing.

    Kit was designed so the pieces do not add resistance to the equation.
    Just ensure you preheat the adapters, as documentation specifies, for best results.

    New V4 Wands accommodate this! Internal and basket screens, when used in combination, create an enclosed herb space within the tip of the wand.
    To use in the style you mention, on demand, just have the preheated EQ and adapter at the ready.
    Have the V4 wand preloaded.
    To vape: insert the wand and take a draw, then immediately remove the wand. (you don't want to "preheat" the wand, that's conduction!)

    You are going to realize flavor like never before the closer you come to 100% convection.

    Troy did a great job showcasing the 14mm kit MicroDosing capabilities.

    I'd love to have a session with him one day, but fear I'd never survive it!!!! Troy is a monster vaper!!!!

    The restrictions in airpath from stock pieces are removed with kit pieces. You won't need to use an strong draw, unless screens become really clogged.

    I'm going to have next specials around ThanksGiving US holiday timeframe. :nod:

    If you have more questions, feel free to send them on over. Please excuse delays in replies... crazy busy lately!

    Have you got both, the evo and the Q? How does the Q with the DDave mod compare with the evo?
    Thank you
