    Sorry, my misunderstanding. The ring. Some of what I said before still counts if that contact is dicey. First check that the metal actually sticks 'proud' of the wood (so it can make contact). If the metal is not exposed you'll need to close or shift the ring probably. In the old days we'd put the flattened part on a solid surface (I used the vice jaws), with the window open so the flat rests on the support. Then put a big screwdriver blade on the ring opposite (in the slot in the back) and give it a tap or two on the handle. You want to close the ring down a bit.

    The last time I did this I bent a clip out of coat hanger wire. A U shaped loop a couple inches long with the ends bent to match the ring of the box. I clipped this loop on the box then carefully crushed the ring in the vice (once using vice grips instead). The key is to put pressure only on the ring, on opposite sides.

    The second technique (with the wire tool) makes it easy to 'test fit' as you sneak up on it.

    You can also send it back, of course.

    Good luck.

    My MFLB was my first vaporizer . My wife bought it for me as a wedding present . That was about 3 1/2 years ago . I loved it but somehow a few different vapes later , it just got forgotten . I just happened to pull it out last week and give it another run . Wow . I totally forgot how great it works and how much I can conserve using it . I am gonna have to keep this thing in rotation with my other vapes ...

    when used correctly it is very conservative IMHO.

    I finally got the chance to test out my box...
    I absolutely love it! When I breathe through my nose pulsing in a slow manner, I just get the perfect hit that is decently thick when I lose a little at the end of the hit- but it completely disappears before I exhale, maybe 3 seconds later. This thing is so brilliant!

    High guys! Is there a more affordable alternative to the OEM water pipe adapter? I heard of people using a Vapor Brothers whip, but I don't have the details. Thank you.

    you just slip the other end over the mflb tube, but you'll need a gong or wong or something.. or you could use a male to male adapter and just take the screens out of the bowl part :razz:

    P.S. It's great with a reducer on the pinnacle pro. Whip in the car? Please and thank you.

    Finally got my walnut LB and PA today:D Unfortunately i had to pay quite some invoice :mad: but in the in the end i saved about $30 (and waited 3 weeks). If there is an Orbiter on Massdrop i don`t know if i will join, but no Dutch webshop sells them.

    Anyway i`m gonna try my older LB with the PA and my selfmade waterpipe. Want to keep the walnut LB new till i fully understand the PA , and i like the "new"-smell:rofl:

    In the event you haven't a warranty left, maybe see if you can gently open it and look for loose connects? May not contact the side contact in your box? If you have a voltmeter/ohmmeter/multimeter/whateverthefuckyoucallitthere you could test the leads?
    Wish I could help out, love doing this stuff for friends :p

    It's my car plug in, so I'll just shovel out the $7 for another. Glad I don't have to warranty the whole thing.

    Is it just the car adapter though? Worked fine on my box with the full range before I shipped it out :/

    It's been perfect since I got it. It's the car cord. Works fine with the wall wart

    My car cord for the PA has died too. I swear I saw someone posting here a really cheap ($3ish) replacement, but I was too high when reading it to bookmark it!

    I don't use (or recommend) oil at all. I use wax. Hard wax, lots of Carnauba. My personal fav is Johnson's Paste wax, like you'd use on the kitchen floor (or local roller rink) if you were so inclined. Very tough stuff.

    And before anyone freaks it's perfectly safe. Same wax is used in candy and other food products. I figure if you can eat it, licking it a bit is OK........

    I use Butcher Block Conditioner. It's food grade mineral oil and natural waxes that are usually used to put on wooden cutting boards, utensils, and bowls. Works just as well on the MFLB and any other wooden accessories.

    Edit: Yeah, what you linked should work just fine.

    I used to rub olive oil on all my fresh-carved pipes, worked pretty well- I'd imagine a couple drops on the outside would rub in pretty well? May change up the taste though?

    I apologize if this came up before but I couldn't find it. My batteries fit so tight in my MFLB that they get stuck making contact. I have to twist and pull them out. Any advice on how to loosen them up or should I just ask for a warranty repair?

    thats up to you.
    but personally I would warranty it unless you think you could sand it without messing anything up.

    It's hard to tell if it the metal ring or the actual hole that is the culprit. They are both tight. Has anyone heard of this?
