    I can't justify getting a finishing grinder in every wood MF has available. LB's are a different story, though. :lol:

    I'm thinking of getting the Cherry Wood or Maple LB's but I'd like to see some more pics besides the ones that are on the website. Could someone upload pics of their premium wood LB's?

    good tip roll a half sheet of A4 (you can use 12 x A4 sheets or a 10/th up to you) up to the size of the draw hole, tape it up with leccy tape all the way(can be bit fiddly) but leave about an inch to stick in the draw hole untaped (the paper has never burnt or even come near after long draws of 4000mah batteries) can also be kinda chewed on :),,,,, shape like gandalf pipe,,,,, puff like frodo

    works better than any device I have ever used from 3 litre gravity bucket to a volcano.... so go figure

    u just have to really "puff" lol

    So who doesn't use the push back ring? I appreciate the safety it affords, but find that the extra pressure it requires detracts from my enjoyment a bit. I suppose it is trivial considering that I will have to back out the battery everytime sans the ring, as well as tell everyone else to back out the battery.

    I don't use the push back ring either. It's just to difficult for me to use because of my Rheumatoid Disease.

    This is my concern. I do occasionally experience forgetfulness when I am using the box ;~)

    i "upraded" my box with it, but took it out shortly after that. it required too much extra pushing. especially using it with the old wpa was very unpractical.

    i have never not used the push back ring in my LB's.. mostly because i like pulsing the battery and it helps for that.. only time i haven't used it was on my friends first gen LB that didn't come w/ it. i don't need it but iv'e become used to it so i leave it..

    I've never used my box without it, but I have thought about it. I wondered if you got a better/cleaner connection by not using it? But I was also concerned if I stopped using it I would be more likly to combust given I'm not used to having to pull the battery back out, or though my current box is not as tight as my last box was and the battery would probably just slide back easily.

    What voltage are your guys' batteries when they're freshly charged? My batteries have been sitting around for a few months with no use and when I tried to charge them in a regular charger they would hardly heat up my mflb. I bought a MH-C9000 and used the break in feature on them and they were reading at about 1.3 volts after the process which I believe is fully charged? The thing that confuses me is they still HARDLY light up the bulb in the mflb and I get little heat. I can't tell if all my batteries went bad from sitting or my mflb needs to be replaced.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    i have had my mflb about 2 weeks the day i brought her home i bathed her in hemp seed oil hoping to induce some very fertile head trips .
    as the relationship has progressed i have found she has some sharp edges near her peek-a-boo hole. I have used some very fine sand paper and gentle massaged her while we vape together were ever we are so she has become more molded to fit in my hand i think shes almost as nice as my new woman. she is most certainly less noisey oh shit i broke something please my appologies idont know bye

    I think you need to use the refresh mode rather than the breakin mode.

    If that doesn't improve things then get a new set of batteries, obviously if a new set doesn't improve things then its the LB and you need to then get a replacement.

    As there isn't physically much that can go wrong with the LB its far more likely to be the batteries than the LB.

    I have a La Cross charger and refreshing the batteries every few months shows a noticeable improvement.

    It would certainly be shorter. The break-in mode is actually multiple cycles of the refresh mode. Sometimes a break-in will revive your batteries so it's not unreasonable to try it. If these are the original Imedions, then sitting for a few months shouldn't kill them and a break-in should help them. On the other hand, I think it's more likely that the batteries are failing, so I'd try new batteries.

    You're welcome.

    Pipe cleaners are actually excellent cleaners of pipes, unlike duct tape which is a lousy choice to tape up ducts it turns out......

    Best wishes.

    So is it completely safe to clean the screen with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip? I try using the brush as much as possible but it's not getting everything out. My screen is getting pretty dirty and it's starting to affect the performance of the box.

    NO! It is not "completely safe". It needs to be done very carefully and with an absolute minimum of alcohol. That screen is frail and even a tiny bit of ISO will wreck the wood.

    You should do a minute or so 'dry burn' to evaporate all the alcohol off afterwards.

    In general, if your box is fouling it's because your bud isn't cured well enough. Dry, fine ground bud, shaken between hits really doesn't foul.
