    If I had $30.35 to spend on anything, and I mean ANYTHING, it'd be the FG. If I even had $31.36 I'd still drop that on a FG. But, I only have a one dollar bill and a rectangle of plastic. I'm gunna go buy a bag of chips ;)

    Hmmm im no expert but here is my 2 cents. Yes the grinder does make it easier especially if you dont carry preground with you. It does get it finer than my cali crusher (even turned upside down) but if your have a particularly dry bud you can crumble your already ground to a suitably fine texture. It is super handy for ver sticky bud though and saves the frustration of sweeping out your bigger grinder.

    I got mine as a 420 feebie from puff it up. If i hadnt gotten it then i cant say i would have ordered it right away, eventually yes but i feel my ball bearings in a tube would have done well enough. I wanted it for away from home/travel and maximizing availability by creating more surface area.

    So overall yes worth it but it depends on what you use, how much, and if you carry with you often. For me with very light daily needs (easier to do small amounts in the finisher)and that my nausea is all day long needing repeat medicating when im not home its worth it. I really love that i can grind right into the trench without spilling :)

    I want to tell you guys that the mflb and orbiter have made my first year at college that much more enjoyable and has saved me from countless possibly sticky situations because of its tiny size and pencil sharpener like aesthetics which blend harmlessly into any pencil bag, doubling as the smell barrier. The orbiter does have some aesthetic and functional shortcuts like a few scratches and a screw on the metal stand which still leaves it lopsided, but it is a great add on with a very functional (a joint for the mouthpiece)and safe design (the metal stand has protected the glass for more than a few tumbles). With the lifetime warranty on the glass bought in 2014, it is my go to glass for individual or small intimate get togethers - the 5th floor thanks MF - and with simple precautionary measures like glycerin (lube) + lemon juice (taste and slightly acidic antiseptic) it is nearly spotless with only after session rinsing.

    Since the deal to acquire a Firefly, from an esteemed member on these forums, fell through. I'm taking it as a sign from the gods to forgo a vape purchase on this special occasion, and I am instead putting that money to summer classes so normal semesters can go a little smoother. This forum was very helpful and is still very enlightening in developments in the vapor world - before discovering the mflb here I was using only the Pax for an ungodly span of time. Thanks everyone!

    Edit: I'm an international student from China at UC Berkeley so thats why the first year thing is significant. My first year among foreign people and I'm loving it!

    You're welcome. The cloth bit is simple and effective, rattles and other random noises bug me sometimes. Quiet is good for the soul.

    Electricity is fun and given a little respect in the right places safe and useful. You know the "magic smoke' theory of electricity/electronic parts? The work because of magic smoke inside you see. If some thing happens and the magic smoke gets out, it doesn't work any more........

    Lots of folks don't seem to fit traditional '8 hours every night' (and the same 8). Others get that biorhythm thing going and suffer jet lag and other nonsense when disturbed. A shift change can make some literally sick. Did you know Edison is widely held to have run 20 plus years on an average 2 hours sleep a day? Used to take cat naps when the urge came on a handy cot. The guy was kind of a tyrant anyway it seems but can you imagine working for a serious type A boss who not only slept at work but was guaranteed to be around the shop anytime you were?

    I too find it best as I get older to eat when hungry, sleep when tired and not let the clock make up my routine (I stopped wearing a watch when I retired, it's very liberating in a way......tool of the devil, watches).

    Regards,

    OF

    Edit:

    You know I'll probably get into trouble for this one, pick up some extra time in Purgatory perhaps, but I just can't get the thought of the second or third best one liner of all time out of my head. You brought it to mind with the above, so I figure it's your fault.....

    It's attributed to Marlena Dietrich. Seems as the Priest went by, swinging his incense burner, she leaned over the rail and in a stage whisper loud enough to be clearly heard in the Choir Loft sad, "Darling, I love your gown, but your purse is on fire....".

    So I finally got the power adapter...holy hell! It makes such a huge difference in power. Great accessory for sure. Thanks for the advice! Anybody have experience with the orbiter ?

    I got the orbiter 2 weeks ago and I like it a lot, but it's my first water item ever so I can't compare. It boosts the already good taste with the MFLB even further and the bubbles are fun to watch. And it smoothes the vapor so it prevents getting a burned throat feeling from vaping.

    The look of the bubbler itself is awesome, it suits just perfect besides the launch box.

    I have a couple of science questions for you lab experts:

    1). Why does the herb in the trench go in the opposite direction of the draw?

    2). Is it possible to take an Indica strain, and through tempuature control, make it respond as a Sativa? Do you have a technique that you use to change the effects of the medicine?

    Not sure what you mean by your first question but as for the second q - no. Not really.

    You may find lower temps will stop the heavier aspects of an indica high but it will not be as a sativa. The high varies quite a lot strain to strain so just experiment.

    Watch what happens to the herb when you take a draw. Instead of coming toward your mouth as you suck, the herb is pulled toward the back end of the trench (away from your mouth). I find this interesting. There must be a logical scientific explanation for this.

    Ps, this is easier to observe when you have less than a full trench. It's also more noticeable on the back end of the session as the herb dries out.

    Notice how the air channel is at an angle respective to the shape of the area where the trench is... it'll swirl around if you draw too hard and rest where there's least resistance.

    If your flower is swirling on every hit, you're pulling too hard.

    I can't see anything while drawing usually. I tend to draw very slowly to control temperature, just saw the tornado a few times for fun after releasing battery, never thought much about it. :D

    just got my ebay finishing grinder in mail so heres a dumb question for FC since I know they have the same warranty as the LB and PA: do all finishing grinders have no serial number or did I get a fake one off ebay. It looks legit and the tin has a silk screened logo instead of a sticker

    That makes perfect sense. Unless you're already laser engraving it (like on the box itself) that's an extra cost I don't think we'd like to pay? There is, of course, no requirement for such a serial number to start with and as we see with other vapes, numbering your product can actually lead to problems, complaints and misunderstandings to sort out.

    I seriously doubt replacement of the grinders will ever be as popular as box replacement gets? Your chances of finding an 'already replaced/orphan' grinder on Craig's list is pretty small.

    word thanks guys, the finishing grinder is nothing but quality I'm so glad I picked one up, so much better than getting sore fingers picking at the nug until you can't get it any finer. Now if only my fucking probation was over......less than a week

    Final reminder (I promise this time, I really do....) if you were on the list for 4/20 stems and didn't get it by now something has happened....please PM me and I'll check into it and try again. One fellow PM'd me saying he'd been overlooked (most likely), misaddressed (also likely) or the PO had lost it.

    I'll clear up any problems, make whatever stems are needed (I have about 3 feet left) and mail them out next week.

    I'm sorry for anyone's 'order' I managed to goof up, but will make it right if you tell me.

    Thanks and good Mother's day to one and all.

    I just have a quick question about the concentrate trays. Would I use the unscreened tray for some pressed kief or just use the MFLB as is?

    I just ordered the concentrate tray. Kief works in the standard trench but has a tendency to get very sticky. I want to do all kief and not just sprinkle a little in so I'm opting for the tray.

    My only question is: should I use the screened or unscreened for pure kief?

    I suggest the one without the pad, it (the one with the pad) works best for oils and waxes that melt and without the pad would be looking to spilling out on the screen of the host box.

    Just lived through a 4 hour power cut. Man it was rough... I had to read!

    God bless the MFLB + batteries. I thank Ganesh that I recently bought a set of Powerex 2700s.

    The PA is super cool, but when the power runs out and we are eating each-other, the MFLB (with batts) will give us a bit more Zen before we are lunch. Or before we work out a new power source I guess.

    Sounds to me like you need a car cord to go with that PA? Then you could sit in the car and watch the neighbors doing without.......
