If theres too much heat on the seals and not enough heat in the center before the goods melt down what will happen?
Leaks below from too much heat, not good. Once it starts there's no cure, it just gets worse. Makes a big mess.
Cold center sections leads to the load freezing in place on the way down (remember, it's going to be 'just barely melted') leaving an air bubble trapped between the wicks and goods, a 'vapor lock' of sorts. No feeding, dry wicks, again not good.
Do it that way and you're 'doubly screwed'?
I'm not sure about any other distributors carrying the new batteries. I remember b0 here saying he ordered a maple box kit from PuffItUp.com and received the new batteries with it, but that doesn't mean they're selling them separate from the kits. I'd contact MF about the shipping cost and whether any other distributors carry the batteries alone.
Anyone else have a problem with the new batteries that they aren't affected by the push back ring? Mine always stays suck in there and today I lost a dab I'm guessing this might be caused by the lack of the white sticker on the nipple of the old batteries
No, it's not the sticker. It's the battery bodies themselves. I've lost a trench to this, full cherry combustion. Best I've been able to do is spin it while inside the LB and find the "weakest resistance" point since my batteries aren't 100% round. The weakness point thing was more obvious for me with the Powerex 2700's, I had one in particular that unless I spun it to the tightest point, simply turning the Box sideways would allow the battery to fall out. No sticker there either. I've also kinda subconsciously started to pull the battery back a MM or so after releasing to ensure that it doesn't happen again.
the new batts were too tight in my older box and would get stuck. in the newer box it can actually fly out if I shake it too hard.
Okay I guess I just need to take extra care, thanks . How long was ur load smoldering till u saw it?
Hey guys what should I use to clean my mflb? I had it for years and only clean the screen with the small brush. The plastic lid, the wood around the screen and the screen itself are fairly dirty. The box smells quite a bit too.
I went to Youtube and typed "clean MFLB" in search.
I got MANY hits, and a choice of MANY videos.
Here is one of them.

Neat video, Vito. I watched the whole thing carefully, to me it sure doesn't look like your hands there.
Didn't sound like my voice either!
AND..... even for a video, you wont see my stem looking that "weathered"~
I figured you fake in a sound track, I half expected a heavy accent of some sort for more cover.
I've never been over interested in your stems......I'll take your word for it.
Best wishes for the upcoming weekend, weather here is super.
Gods know I love the Vape Critic for all he does, but he's making cleaning the "glass" stem harder than it need be. I saw this tip here on FC and it works for me. Just rip off a small strip of paper towel and pull it through the stem. If you do it once a week or so you shouldn't have any problem.
Speaking of cleaning "The Box", I received and have been using my oil tray for about a week now and find that it (works beautifully) does tend to gunk the screen and lid fairly quickly. Is this the way it is or could I be doing it wrong?

that's just how it is
I agree. There are, I think ways to limit/control it to some extent. The most obvious is the concentrate, some 'spit' a lot I find, others almost not at all. Not so obvious is fill level. More, smaller fills seem to stay cleaner to me. I assume it's just a matter of more of the tray being filled? Maybe it's that some of it gets heated, then cooled only to heat again (maybe several times). I also think 'sneaking up on it' helps. That is getting it hot enough to start making vapor, then slacking off the power for a few seconds then going for the gold.
And, of course, draw speed is a factor, I'm liking slow steady pull best I think, otherwise the vapor seems to swirl around on me between 'micro hits'.
Lots to play with. I'm hoping others will join in the fun of exploring these little guys. With good goods, they definitely add a new dimension to the box. It makes logistics harder, but can return big dividends in exchange. Guys with LBs and access to good concentrates should be considering them IMO.
Mine doesn't gunk up after torching it...
My lid gets stained with budda/wax splatters .
It happens when I first melt the budda , and it starts to bubble up .
And when the oil bubbles burst , it splashes onto the lid .
I've used iso with tweezers to scrape off the remnants on the lid .
But I just know , some budda is being wasted when I clean the lid .
I think I'm going to consider buying an additional MFLB just for the wet stuff... Not that there's anything wrong with that!
Are you sure that's what you wanted to say, Q Man? You're not really torching the box (lid or screen), right? You're torching the tray (not box) I think.
I think you should clarify what "it" is so the others don't take their torch and make a real mess of their favorite MFLB?
OF (crossing his fingers this doesn't get us into one of those 'it depends on what your definition of "is" is things......last time we did that it didn't work out too good....).
Wait, you're not supposed to torch the Box?
Nah, I'm kidding. I sped-read it (a habit I picked up young) and completely missed a word, which ruined my ~90% accuracy. This bit here:
I read as "been using my oil tray for about a week... find that it does tend to gunk up the screen fairly quickly." I ran right over the "and lid" bit and thought he meant the screen on the CT was what gunked up (thinking it was concentrate-quality related)... was wondering why he wasn't just torching the CT to clean off any buildup.
Well now you know I guess. No big deal of course, as long as someone doesn't read it as I did, trust you, and give it a go?
Your fault Vitolo!
I haven't used this thing for a 1 1/2 years.
Ordered a 4 pack of batteries.
My lid is cracked and I need a new one.
For a quick rip from time to time with this thing!
fellow magic flight aficionados from europe, azarius.net sells almost all mflb accessoires, including the CT and the finnishing grinder. although, they only seem to have pictures of these two items, probably still deciding on the price. not sure, if they got the new batteries in store either.
