Nice one there!!! could you up some pics of that possibly?
Thanks again sounds good!!
Thanks for the pics Guardian! Looks awesome.
these are the type of grommet i speak of dopevape, just get the right bubbler my bowl is 3/4 inch across and is mayby a 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep its a regualr piece not gong , hammer does sell a 14mm gong bowl though. more pics for the hell of it
STOP ! IT'S HAMMER TIME ! Though my mind at peace, the world out of order
Thanks for the pics!! Nice and simple that is awesome!! Makes me think of another idea about an upside down L-shaped tube just for this application so u can use hammer along side your bubbler instead of ontop of it !! hmm
It's Hammer time allright vape on!! (edited)
I love that you are adapting The Hammer to you own style. One of the best things about the Hammer is that it plays nicely with other glass pieces.
Here are some glass hammers I made. They are not bubblers, but they use the 14mm GonG adaptor.
Those are awesome! Will you be selling any (glass hammers)?
well for giggles i did some ghetto testing today and blew up some bags of vapor with my hammer, i achieved this by just taping a sandwich bag around the end of the mouthpiece, now this part required some coordination, you light the hammer and interface the bowl as normal 2 hands and have your other hammer bowl (empty) held in your lips and interface it to the other side of the heat exchanger and blow through it. easier to do than it sounds and to hit it i just put the empty bowl against the other and inhaled, the screen in the other bowl keeps you from inhaling any plant matter but be careful when you move them apart not to spill any material (happened a couple times) it worked out ok got dense bags of cool vapor and no burning, and was able to share kinda, i need to think of an easier way to hit it once its full since the bowl gets hot and youd suck material up and burn your lips if you dont hold the other bowl against it and use as is. will add pics sometime upcoming to show what i mean exactly, also note i plan to get an airpump sometime similar to the herbalaire pump, then i can blow up bags with the hammer without using lung power. also note tried hammer with a waterfall bong today made from a plastic drink bottle also a KO worked great, the hammer is really adaptable im liking it so far , we called it the ghetto volcano today lol but hey it made a hella nice bag of vapor and outdoors away from power
Very clever! I have never thought about using the Hammer this way. I'm interested to see if it works with an airpump.
We are actually working on a new accessory that should make your experiment a bit easier...
It is a larger glass stem that locks onto the Hammer. Not only does it have a much bigger bowl, but because the glass is firmly attached to the Hammer, you can use it with one hand!!!
I don't expect to make the glass hammers a standard offering, but I'm sure that we could arrange for a sale if you are interested.
Thanks again to everyone for all of the hilarious entries in our meme contest. We really had a lot of fun.
Don't forget... today is the last day of the SUPER BOWL SALE!!!
The hammer is so effective, it's a riot to see people who always denounce vaporization take a pull on the hammer, the reaction is indicative of the efficacy.
what i find best about the hammer is airflow, so many people have a problem with a restricted draw and having to hit a vape so slowly their barely breathing to get good vapor but with the hammer you can draw fast and still get a huge cloud. ive never ued an ssv but id say the airflows are similar not very restriced. ive abandoned the hammer for a few days to test my new iolite, and id have to say i like both being butane powered, comparing the two the hammer can get a huge cloud of vapor in literally 30 some odd seconds with the flame set on low, the io holds the most material and takes about 3 minutes to heat up and get hits and it goes on for about 10-15 mins on a bowl. so in short the hammer is like hitting a pipe and getting a strong hit in a shorter amount of time for less material and the io is like smoking a joint its more relaxed is temp controlled holds more material and just keeps going on for a longer relaxed session. each has their place for me. i havnt needed to use the hammer so extensivly that the casing gets too hot to touch which the manual says to let it cool-down at that point but im sure it could handle it.
Hmm it can get quite hot to the touch but i don't see it melting any time soon . Sometimes I do extra sessions, I can never seem to get enough of it! Yeah i can be hard on my vapes ...
I have a couple of questions, and while they may have been answered already, I couldn't really find them through a search.
1. How long does a butane fill of the Hammer last?
2. How long does a can of butane normally last? (I know there are many variables)
3. Are there any session/hit video's not done by Hammer?
Thank you, the price point and perceived performance have me intrigued. I've never seriously looked at a butane vaporizer, but the Hammer has my eye.
Will try and answer your question theway I expirienced it so far.
1. Think it allrdy lasted me 1 day and a half of constant usage but im guestimating here. 1 fill
2. Hmm a Can of butane can last 2-3 weeks? a month maybe but thats prolly stretching it.
3. Haven't seen any vids besides the one from hammer team.
Thanks for responding to X24, Dopevape ! I'll expand a bit more...
1. A single butane fill usually last 4-5 sessions, so depending on usage it should last most users a day or two, maybe longer if your light user. I tend to just fill mine once a day before my first session since it only takes a few seconds.
2. Again this varies by usage frequency, but a larger can of butane from a drugstore (about 6 oz for $5) will last about a month with normal usage. I average about 2-3 sessions a day on my Hammer and the big can lasts me nearly 2 months.
3. We hope to release more demo/instructional videos soon. Haven't really seen any user generated videos yet. We'd love for some of you Hammer users out there to show people what's up! Maybe we'll do a video contest soon
Butane is actually an extremely efficient way to heat a vape quickly, as long as the exhaust doesn't get mixed in with the vapor and affect the flavor, which as many users in this thread have mentioned is an issue the Hammer has solved. Here is a link to a new review that mentions this as well http://reviewsvaporizers.com/hammer-portable-vaporizer-review/
Let me know if you have any other questions I can answer.
I think I may to with the Hammer. I mostly vape solo, and I think a Hammer and a small bubbler, such as the setup guardian has might be the ticket... although as an EE guy, seems sort of like I'm cheating on digitally controlled vaporizers... Oh well, maybe I'll just keep my Ohm's law vape around for some stealthiness as well.
The only things holding me back are my own uncertainty about vapor production and bowl size.
The Solo's bowl has been described as twice as large as the Hammer's... The Solo's bowl wasn't always big enough as it is...
How long does it take to properly vaporize ~.2g's in this thing? That's the upper-range of a typical dose for myself.
I'm hoping I can do a video in the near future. Just have to sort the finances for a new camera.
hey again, errr u might be surprised about the size of the bowl and the vapor you can churn out , i was a bit worried about this myself at first, but they made a bigger size bowl as well so no worries any more hehe.
your up and running in about 30 seconds on high setting first heat up then u can allrdy take a nice puff when u consider the slower drawing rate or take that into account you should be in for a nice hit first try. well fast draw works as well but if u really want big one just draw slower first hit.
hmmm u can get .2g's up in vapors in like 3 of those hits. high setting is what u want i believe.
I forgot about the conserving part, try the smaller bowl first load it up and see how u like that ccould be u need less !
You posted at 4:20 Dopevape. Hope you hit it.
Forget those concerns, The size of the standard bowl is enough for hardened veterans. I really believe there will be no issue there. Most are done after the first swing, let alone the two or three you need to do before stirring and getting two to six more lungfuls.
awesome hehe it was totally unaware off being done ofcourse i didnt know cause time format is different hehe nice one there!!! yes i was hitting it I mostly am when on here
Exactly. EDITdepending on how high u set the temperature ofcourse. Full blast i tried it out and is about 3 hits maybe some more but then i thought the weed was more then dark enough to toss it. U can go black as well if you want but i think its not what we want right?
Higher quality products last longer in the bowl.
hmmm that might be the problem then, haven't been able to get good grade mj for months now...
This is a really good point...
The Hammer is an outstanding tool for sampling and judging different strains. This is because it performs a very complete extraction in such a short period of time. With only 2-3 draws, you will have a very good idea about what a sample contained. And because the vape is separate from the bowl, you can start with a clean stem for the purest flavors possible.
I tested a sample just the other day that looked great, but a quick Hammer-ing revealed much less vapor than I would have expected.... Something better would have kept producing dense vapor for many more draws.
NO MORE wispy HITS
well i finally broke one of my stems today making bho with it. i was pushing the can of butane too hard onto it, but i would realy like an all stainless bowl/stem, durability is key. a clean glass piece is nice but i like hardcore seasoned vapor tools as long as the screen isnt clogged im fine with it. as far as clouds go even when i dont get big clouds or many of them i can still feel it, it gives a strong hit.
