    I'm using bubble hash in the trays that do NOT have a pad.

    Me too. Oils and waxes in the ones with pads, solid and bubble in the unlined ones. I'm not sure about taffy and other stuff with lots of solids, I suspect they will work best without the pads. Overfilling is to be avoided too, IMO.

    Use the right tray, and no more concentrate than needed for a hit or two at a time and they can do a good job if you can feed them enough heat.....and remember not to shake.

    "Crossing the line" is not advised.

    Here's a question for you, OF. Have you noticed a tiny build up of oil under the little arm that sits on the rail of the trench? I have, and it worries me some. That build up actually caused the CT to stick to the rail a little bit. Nothing major, but definitely noticeable. I just check it often now to make sure that it doesn't stick, wiping the oil away with a clean q-tip.

    Yes, I had it stick on me (that was a clue.....). I think it's condensate, that part of the metal is no doubt colder. I too found the solution is to just keep it clean.

    No big deal I guess, but something to consider. IMO part of the fun of the tray is in such details of use? It's a little ritual to go through setting up a couple of nice hits with an old friend. Like Vapman in that respect I think......

    I wonder if this happens to everyone. I don't remember anyone else saying they had this problem, but I could have missed it.

    Who knows? It's distinctly possible they're just keeping their gear cleaner? Or it may be goods related (I think it is, it didn't happen with bubble IIRC?

    Possibly both. I wonder why certain concentrates would cause that problem. I'm curious to watch out in the future for what other people have to say about this. For now, keeping the rails clean alleviates the problem.

    ***Because of this problem, I have decided to limit my concentrate use to my maple LB. I'll keep my cherry and walnut LB's for flowers and kief.

    I received the new glyph batteries last night! First time using them though was... frustrating. I'm actually willing to blame it on the strain I was using, because it has given me problems before in my MFLB. :|

    I'll be sure to try them in a more controlled situation next time, with some herb I know works well in the MFLB. I didn't really expect to have to learn an all new technique, but I'm willing to embrace the challenge! :lol: Right after a micro tolerance break, been going at it a little hard this last week.

    Hi all, I've been enjoying my box for several months now. Only complaint I find is that my batteries/pa are constantly being scraped by the outside coil ring, and when i wipe my finger on the coil, i find tiny metallic particles. is this an issue?

    It obviously bugs you, so IMO it's an issue. Fortunately one easy to correct. Just take a small piece of 240 grit paper backed up by your fingertip and polish the rough spots out of the face of the ring. Only the very narrow part that can contact the battery matters, and sanding the wood a little bit near the ring won't hurt a bit. Just work your way around the circle, pausing on rough spots until they're gone and you're done. Two minutes tops?

    I don't know how normal it is, but I've had it happen. The fix above is fast, easy and complete.

    Hey guys! Sorry if this has been posted before, but I have some questions about the solid concentrate tray.

    I'm in Paris working for the next few months and my primary source is Moroccan pressed hash that looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    I have an old, non-click model LB back home in the US, but I also got a new cherry model at what's probably the only real head shop in Paris (the wood on the cherry is gorgeous, especially in the light... I liked it more in the store than the walnut, which was only ~$6 more so if you're on the fence go for it).

    First time using the concentrate trays, so I'm wondering what the best way to use the hash is and when to know when it's done. Generally, I cut slivers off with a hot knife, store them in the plastic screw-dish that came with the trays, and put those on the tray one at a time so they about cover the surface area of the tray but are very thin. I then vape it hot until they turn black (six or so hits), and the taste starts to get sour and acrid. Then I scrape the tray off with a knife, and every six or seven uses, combust the residue with the pictured lighter (torches are pricey in France and I don't feel like splurging particularly).

    Anything I could be doing better or to the benefit of my current routine? Thanks to the community :).

    Hey guys I just found this cigarette bubbler and I was thinking it could probably work with the MFLB too.
    They're on Amazon for about 4 bucks: [​IMG]

    And a ton of folks here have figured that out....and don't need your Amazon referral.

    I think its still $4 on the alibaba site right?

    I've removed your links because that price is almost 8 times higher than the cost of these things if you poke around.

    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate thread for this question but here it is anyways, has anyone tried using the concentrate trays in a flashvape??

    Yes. There's even a video of it somewhere in the FV thread. I think Stu was one of the perpetrators.

    I tried it myself. The problem is that the concentrate trays are designed to fit snugly in the LB trench, so that heat gets delivered evenly. When you put one in the FV it won't sit upright and some of the tray does not get heated directly. The FV is so powerful it still works, but I wouldn't bother doing it again. For one thing, it's really easy to spill the load this way.

    I've also put the concentrate tray into a Palm 2.0. Despite the smaller trench it actually fits fairly well once you remove the top screen. The good news is that while the LB struggles with the tray unless you're using the new MF batteries or the PA, the P2 with Powerex 2700s is powerful enough to work.

    Greetings, long time lurker, first time post. I am becoming more enamored with this technology of vaping but, do not where to begin! If I may divulge what I seek maybe some experienced user can help me with the right decision. I'm looking for my first vape to portable and I've narrowed my choices down to the MFLB and Arizer Solo. Why I feel the MFLB is a good choice is: price compared to the Solo. Can do flower and concentrates with the additional tray, no internal battery (however I've researched that the Solo Li-ion can be replaced, but with some work), made of wood not plastic (durability), lifetime warranty. I might be missing a few more but these are on the top of my list. What concerns me however is the learning curve for getting good hits. I'm not all about the milky hits that I see on videos but I want to have some heavy vapor hits. That is where the Solo comes in. It seems very easy to ensure that one will get consistently good hits each time. But again, pricier, 2 year warranty, plastic case, no concentrates. I have to go to work sorry for a rushed first post. Thanks for any help!

    If you choose both solo and Mflb you won't need any other vaporizers... water and dry paths are set for life... my :2c:

    They both have their function.
    The MFLB is a good first vaporizer. (For a quick hit it's great)
    SOLO if flavor is important.

    Curious if anyone found a better deal for the power adapter, seems none of our retailers carry it. Can only find it on the MLFB site, sitting in my shopping cart right now. Having trouble pulling the trigger though, $59 plus shipping for basically a power cord seems like too much to me. :shrug:
