    Yeah for the ISO cleaning he simply dips the cleaning brush in ISO and does a quick brush down of the screen. I'll have him try a burn off and see what occurs.

    "simply dips the cleaning brush in ISO" is not it, either. WAY too much solvent. WAY too often. You want 'barely damp' on rare occasion. Nothing dripping. You want to wipe stuff away, not wash it off. Washing off begs to question 'to where?'.

    No amount of brushing the exposed part of the screen with ISO is going to help smell much at this point, all it can do is make it worse. The issues is just not on the exposed inner surface.

    This points to a problem I have with this sort of stuff. No offense to your bud or anyone else in specific, but a general observation. Guys tend to get carried away with net.tips they often don't really even think through. Perhaps many have the understanding, time or inclination to do more than jump on random advice from strangers who aren't even using their real names? For instance, a while back I balked at posting my 'secret' cleaning technique for Cera cores (I think that was the thread....) and told the fellow in trouble to PM me because there was some danger involved I wanted to be sure he understood that made it questionable public information. Five other guys PM'd me with all sorts of ideas on how if I only told them......

    Looking back there's no doubt in my mind that that technique would have been abused immediately by some. Used routinely, like the more minor ISO wash down here, courting the day when some poor sod got seriously hurt (perhaps with 'being stoned' part of the cause?).

    The real time incarnation of 'a little knowledge is dangerous'?

    Anyway, tell your bud to put the ISO away and try a couple of burn offs. The way he's going is not going to get better I think.

    Will pass the knowledge along, I think the over use of ISO stems from the combustion days of wanting absolutely clean glass, atleast for some anyway. But you know what they say a knowledge is power but stupidity is a warhead.

    How long do you guys let your concentrates heat up prior to sipping after they have been absorbed into the screened tray, and at what heat setting do you find to be optimal for vaping?

    I'm not sure which model you mean, but the MQR06 is the one that the Googles say they call a quick charger, and that one is fine. It's a bad idea to use the ones that do a 15 minute charge because those stress the batteries and ruin the battery life. Check out the Sanyo FAQ.

    it's the NC-MQR06W. it doesn't do 15 minute chares. 1 hour seems to be the fastest.

    Recently picked up a cherry Art Cart box. It's beautiful, but I'm curious as to why it's several shades darker than my other cherry box. I'd love to show you pics, but I can't figure out how to get them into the body of this message. So, if anyone would like to see the images, please PM me and tell me how to get them on the forum.

    Thanks in advance.

    Syd

    Edited to add: The pics appeared! Guess I did it all by myself. :p

    Concerning the shade of the wood, I don't really know but I guess even in the same wood variety every individual is different, hence the color variation from one piece to another.

    Wow, I haven't chimed in on the LB thread for a while, but Of is correct on the best method of eradicating the smell. I do not clean my 4yr. old box often maybe a light brush off, and sometimes
    I will do a burn-off in the backyard using a PA and some light brushing but that's it.
    What I really wanted to share is how fucking effective this vape is when used natively.
    The high from my LB is quicker and stonyier than any other vape I have tried ( pax, solo, volcano,
    vapolution and vapir one). I have started to enjoy higher temps which I use for quicker more forceful hits. These have the tendency to brown the herb faster than the other vapes. (metal conduction)
    Still to be able and go out and get great hits anywhere is great!

    I wonder if MF will ever offer custom-etched boxes. How cool would that be to submit a drawing or writing sample and have it etched into the lid of the box? I know that some of you don't like the etching on the lid because it can obstruct the view of the trench. I, however, am a fan and would love to have a personalized, custom-etched box.

    Not really asking a question of the group. Just thinking out loud.

    Interesting idea. It's a simple part of common material.....

    Thinking out loud in return, I wonder if you sent them one made locally ($2000 laser engravers will do this nicely) they'd put it on a new box for you? That would spare them most of the extra costs and effort. Perhaps they could even mail you a cover to get engraved at your expense and convenience?

    Wouldn't it be possible to directly engrave the cover while already mounted on a traditional Launch Box ? Does it really need to be a separate "flat" part to be engraved ?
    Nice idea anyway ;)

    You should be able to do at least part of it, I believe it has to be done on the bottom so it doesn't get chipped and filled with junk. Doing so involves giving your box to a stranger that way? Your call.

    No, within reason laser engravers are fine with curved or irregular surfaces. They focus quite well over a reasonable distance.

    For instance, the sides of the TV carts in the original line (and the bottoms of the Ultra Supplies) are laser engraved. The carts are maybe 5/16 inch in diameter? The engrave flashlights and stuff 'all the time'.

    There are local shops in most cities engraving trophies and awards. You might drop by one and 'chat them up'?

    I made a 2l vaporlung and it works really good with a PAMFLB. Gives huge hits and transfers inhaling technique to hand pulling technique, which is much easier and gives excellent visual feedback.
    I was worried that 2l would be too small, but actually it is very large for the MFLB. It can take a couple minutes to milk it whole. But then the hit is HUGE!

    2 l too small? :) i had made one with 0,7 and one with 1,5. i personally like the small one better, since it was less easier to combust as opposed to a longer draw with a bigger bottle.

    I think last time I filled out the form, there was a button to upload pictures directly so everything would be sent to them at the same time (cutting down on time and emails sent).

    Make sure it's in .jpg format and that the file size isn't too big!

    [quote thought it would be a big hastle.[/quote]

    Not a hassle at all. I just did a warranty claim and it went very smoothly. Sent my initial email via the online form on Sun and on Tue got notification that a replacement box had been sent. I should have it by the end of the week. Now all I have to do is submit my pics of the dismantled damaged box and I'm done. Easy breezy.
