    If your going to use oils or hash in your Mflb just get the trays. There not expensive and do a better job than any paper boat/cotton etc

    Also if your really looking for something simmilar to a dan then how about a maud-dib? Or the back of a hammer? Or a rig???

    Just heat the trench quick with the lid open for like 5 seconds and your good IMO. Bone dry herbs near powder consistency and your good!

    Same way here, no worries! I fell in love with shorty wood stems but now I use it native. I sometimes do long draws but usually I puff on it with faster short draws.

    When you look well at your launch box, you may not see the same thing that a camera (or much younger eye) may see.
    A neighbor is having "low heat" issues with new glyphs, and my naked eye, looked and saw everything was A-OK in his trench area...

    The moral of the story being do not always trust your eyes!

    Hey, it was still in there swinging? Making vapor? Just 'having "low heat" issues'......

    Tough little critter, but not bullet proof.

    That looks suspiciously like the results of aggressive cleaning.

    My walnut box took a dive out the window of my truck last night while going about 40 mph. It took the worst ding to the tip of the ed's tnt stem and a few scrapes on the box but nothing too major ... battle scars.

    The owner of this box is a bit overzealous in his cleaning, true.... but had his cleaning been consiistent since day 1, the dark resin would not be present on the left-most portion of rod.
    Still, that is also my analysis.

    It's a clear warranty claim. Good thing it's the LB because it wouldn't be for any other vapourizer.

    So very true. This fantastic 'safety net' adds a bit to the cost of each box, of course, but the advantage is so very welcome when needed.

    In a fun way, the way you'd deal with a good friend or family member that owes you money......

    If it tastes fine, id leave it. Don't worry about cleaning it other than brushing it out. Screen doesn't need much to keep clean other than that trusty brush. Maybe something to rub on it to condition the wood once in awhile? I think you'll like it if you try it. Did you get maple?

    Once again, KF is spot on with solid advice. Forget cosmetics. Like in firearms, more are ruined by over cleaning than not cleaning enough.

    Using it normally will remove most deposits on the screen over time. Until then, the deposits don't effect taste or vapor production typically.

    Enjoy the little jewel. Keep it dry going in, grind fine, keep batteries charged up, don't fill over the shoulder of the trench, and shake, shake, shake.

    Take some smaller tokes or different stems. Also try have the vapor hit your tongue or somethin to break it up before yor throat. I've heard an ce cube helps but is that always at your convenience? Native might be less harsh on your throat?

    Yes sir..I jus tried it native...thanku so much..I jus love this thing..its like each toke is on demand, I am mostly on road, so weneva I get free time, I take a drag or 2 , shake the box , then reorganize the trench again..its so much convenient , compared to a solo..I have to go on 12mins and I get way too high, but with this I can jus maintain that sweet spot..

    You're welcome, glad you're getting it sorted out. As to covering the turning red, coughing, and gasping for breath as you try to maintain an inconspicuous appearance that's something each guy has to sort out. I try avoiding it, personally. One idea is to immediately put the little box in your pocket before you attract too much attention? Then maybe pretend you swallowed an insect?

    As a technique suggestion, try a fine (and uniform) grind of well cured bud with the trench filled not quite to the rails. You can then 'shake blind'. That is shake it well and then put it level, shake it back and forth in the flat plane a bit, and assume it's OK without looking. It actually works well. You can 'automatically' set it up for a fresh hit.

    I get what you say about Solo. You tend to take more than you need to, it's hard to shut the little sucker off when it's working so hard to make you happy.

    Best wishes,

    The PA is definitely worth it and I recommend it highly. I've never used it in a car, but there is a car adapter and I see no reason why it wouldn't work well.

    Last night i vaped some hash from the tray. What i didn`t notice was that a small piece hung over the tray and touched the trench. Today i cleaned it with medical pure cleaning alcohol. But i can still see the line were it burned in. Seems like it didn`t burn trough and the LB still works. I there a way to clean it like it was new?

    I had that happen with an earlier box. I never used ISO on it though, I tried some burn offs with the PA on full blast. Never went away.

    Think of it as a battle scar and a reminder to be less messy with your concentrates. Leaves you with that memory of vaping some good hash, eh?
