    Lazy is OK in some areas..... in becoming the best Vaporist you can be... Search is a good friend, and reading the lengthy pages of posts increases your brain power, and Vape knowledge.

    So I've been using some heavy hitters lately like the FlowerPot and liger, and with the FP it's been an awesome time no doubt these past couple of weeks, but damn did I ever go through a ton of bud.

    Today I decided to break out my favorite HI in the entire collection - 100 yr. old Pine with an Osage cap taken from another HIsaber.

    10.62v on the dial. Shatter sprinkled on top of the stem. Lear mini beaker.

    Oh my, that was one of the nicest single hits I've had in years!! A monstrous cloud comparable to the flowerpot with a lot LOT less material used. Still there is no better feeling than hitting it out of the park first try on the VVPS (got lucky!) :rockon:

    Hello everyone,

    The first hit at 12v I take is perfect, toasting everything to a coffee brown. I then find I need to wait for it to heat back up to get the same temperature. Is this common to have to wait between hits to achieve same temp?

    I have been using the SSV and LSV for years, which are quite powerful, so it's possible I am just adjusting

    Big thanks to @Alan for my beautiful new HI and microcontroller. I have been using it with the 14mm GonG tube in a bong, and it is superb.

    I have been using an SSV and LSV for about 5 years, and this is my first log style vaporizer. I have always used @DDave mods on both to get small and efficient loads, so the load size of the HI I love.

    At 12 volts I found it best to wait 30 seconds between hits in order to keep it hot enough to get me the coffee brown ABV I prefer. The flavor is incredible, especially if you dial it down to 11.7v or 11.8v.

    I amazed by the simplicity and craftsmanship of the HI, and am more than pleased. Alan has also been extremely helpful and kind, even since a couple years ago when i purchased tubes from him for my LSV.

    Thanks!![​IMG]

    Yeah there's a cool down period for both of my logs. I adapted to it differently. I have mine turned up a little so that the first bowl in a ss tip would be too hot, but the next bowl would be perfect. Before I use it the first time in a session, I blow into the core and then take my first hit. Anyway, I don't really think about it anymore cause it's second nature now. So yeah I look at it like it's the first hit that's too hot and the rest are normal. I chain bowls back to back to back sometimes. But then I'm ripped. :) It's like having a fresh bowl for each rip from the vape.

    What beauty you have there @Raskin666 I love the looks of it. What's the texture like?

    It's a maple HI with SS heater cover, wood bottom cap, and a bit of burl on the side. I'm so impressed by the workmanship and functionality!

    Is that the voltage regular that it comes with? There are no pictures on the site.

    Yes, it is the microcontroller that Alan makes, but doesn't come with the HI by default, you have to request it additionally.

    @JJ420 - Good to hear the pine HI is still pumping out the clouds. The taste is much better at the lower voltages.

    @Raskin666 - Thanks for posting the photo. Glad you are enjoying your HI. The heating element is only about 8 watts at 12 volts which is lower than most 120 volt put out. It takes about 30 seconds until I'm ready for the next hit anyhow, so it works out well.

    @Boden - Welcome to the HI thread. There is a lot of interesting reading. The voltage controller is a 25 watt buck / boost unit. It can raise the voltage above an input of 12 in addition to lowering the voltage. Best of luck with your LBV. I used to use the same dimmer switch with my GTV prototype for adjusting the temperature. You might want to look into a removable cord to address the power cord strain relief.

    @ilovebOObs - So good to see you again bOObs! Hope you can stop by more often. I'm still making fine wooden vaporizers. Adding more options all the time.

    Here is my latest creation. It is a glass aromatherapy cup.

    [​IMG]


    I created it to be able to work on the glass heater cover HI's. It is basically a Universal tube that has a 10mm test tube rather than a roasting tube. It slides over the heater cover and the bottom of the test tube rests on the heater cover (glass or ss). Just place a tiny amount of essential oil into the test tube before installing on the HI. The silicone sleeves hold the test tube in place and also allow it to be removed when hot. Blowing air across the top of the test tube will increase the rate at which the scent is released.
    The cost is $13.

    I think I'd like to credit myself for the production of the aroma therapy cup for the glass covers ;) @Alan thanks again for doing this with my needs in mind!

    I'm a first time poster on the HI and a long time poster for the Vapman page!
    Once I recieve my bamboo HI I'll be sure to post more; for now I think I'll lurk for a bit longer

    As always friends

    Realized I've had my HI for a year and a half now. Ironically that's exactly how long I was on the list waiting to have it produced for me. Yet somehow that year and a half of ownership went by much much faster than the year and a half of waiting. Go figure! ;)

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi to my Jed-HI friends out there and of course the Master himself Alan. My HI brings me joy and relief every single day. Heck, I still love looking at it. If you're considering getting on the list, it is well worth any wait time you may encounter.

    Nice! Shortly after I made the same realization Alan emailed me that it was my turn yet again (closer to a year and 8 months I believe). Can't wait to see what he whips up for me, went with steel and am excited about my wood choices

    My HI is the most attractive vape I own. I'm bad at pictures but may look back to find one that's similar. It is small and has kind of an hourglass shape. Absolutely lovely. This is a HI thread so I'm not going to mention that any time I need an accessory mp, wood or glass, or a whip for any vape I contact Alan. Amazing artistry.
    (Was just looking back to find my shape and saw the pineapple and crushed pineapple shapes. Now I want one of those. So unique!) Does everyone who is ordering a HI know that Alan said somewhere back in the thread that he can make almost any shape you want?
