    Finally got a chance to throw something together for you all to engorge your eyes with!
    I had done a couple of practice bowls so my unit was nice and warm and chucked a fresh battery in for this shot. I have moved my screen away from the heater a bit and swapped it back around not basket! Its now the same as stock and I like better for a couple of reasons. It heats more even, the vapour is smother (easier to control the temp) and its heaps easier to stir if I need to without spilling. Any way here is my vid... I will try and get some before and after bowl shots of a similar load.

    Spalted I believe are going to be exclusive to RBT's site. Cherry and Walnut may be available on 420EDC shortly.

    Nope
    Going hard like that I can get some darker spots but can normally get 2 hits that size and normally one more if I stir. Gotta be careful on that third though can get hard the stay on the edge. But its easy to detect the first 10% combustion :freak: and stop drawing.

    Here are some picks I took today of a similar load to my video only difference was Milaana was cold but this makes little to no difference to the outcome.
    [​IMG]
    Suck up ground to load
    [​IMG]
    Then tamp with an unsharpened pencil
    [​IMG]
    After first hit
    [​IMG]
    After 2nd hit
    [​IMG]
    After a stir
    [​IMG]
    After 3rd hit and dumped
    [​IMG]
    I could have probably got a 4th hit but taste was pretty ordinary already by the 3rd, and I'm good now any way...
    I did all this in under 5 minutes too so nice and quick.

    Just one of the many ways I use my Mi. I still cant find a way (to load, tamp, material, grind, underwear colour) that it wont work with :science:

    Thanks for the pick battery insulator idea and more importantly reinforcing a safety minded culture in the RBT family.

    I have spalted envy @b0 @Copacetic :)

    Interested to hear thoughts as you're both coming from V1s right?

    I won't say anything (more than I already gushed....) but yeah, please update. Beautiful Milaanas. I love that burl stem... kinda jeaaaaalouus

    All these beautiful milaanas recently! I binge watched RBT's youtube and I have to say, it makes some great vaping background noise. And the wood work definitely improves the atmosphere.

    Woah sweet mama! :drool:

    I can't get enough of these drop dead gorgeous looking vapes!

    I'm a spalted Mi-nut! :D

    @Copacetic & @b0 - you are lucky guys! Those patterns are insane! Each unique & beautiful in it's own right.

    Has anyone ever picked up 'the wrong stem'? One with no screen installed? I did this the other day as I was walking down the street . . . I then attempted to discreetly vacuum load it from a pot of pre-grounds - needless to say, I was greeted with a fluffy mouthful on which I loudly choked, and when I smiled it looked like I'd been eating spinach . . .
    [​IMG]
    Anyway, just thought I'd share that embarrasing little fail with y'all! :doh:

    And now for Mi pix . . .

    I've done this with my Mi and nano - fortunately always at home when I grab the wrong glass. I do like edibles, but not like this! Worst part is I end up with much more in my mouth then a regular load (hey.... stop that snickering!), and am bummed I just wasted that much. Kind of freaky to see ground green stuff in your toothbrush after, too!

    Bam Bam is back at the mothership for a checkup. If @RastaBuddhaTao accidentally replaced her with a spalted unit I wouldn't complain, tho I think I might miss her...

    Picked up a newly used Milaana from the classifieds the other day from our wonderful FC brother @nondarb. I have to say I am a big fan of the production of this thing, it can really pack a punch! Now I am having one issue though, although I can safely say there is a good 99.9% chance it is coming down to user error and I would just appreciate it if anyone can point out to me what I'm doing wrong here cause I feel like a dumby. It seems that whenever I load the screens into the Milaana stem I can't just get them to stay in place and they keep getting sucked up through the stem and into my mouth whenever I inhale too hard. Does anyone have any tips for getting the screen placed in the stem nice and snug so it won't fall out so easy?

    @sixstringsmash They may not be RBT screens. That wouldn't happen with an RBT screen.
    @RastaBuddhaTao makes the absolute nicest screens I've ever seen.

    @Vape Dr. thanks for the input! I'll post a picture of my screens, if you could take a look at them and confirm if they're RBT screens or not it would be greatly appreciated. The screen's themselves seem to be sturdy and well made, the problem seems to just be getting it to stay in the stem.

    Sorry for the blurry quality of this one, turns out my phone camera doesn't do too well when zoomed in.

    @Vape Dr. been meaning to ask - where can I grab that little rubber piece you were using as a fire-button cover?
    Believe you said it was an EVO piece? or something...


    I think I'd prefer this to the guitar-pick mod on my butternut Mi to keep a minimal nature. I've been using it with nothing thus far but I'd like to avoid any potential accidents, regardless of how careful I am.

    @sixstringsmash Unfortunately I cannot tell from that picture. Regardless I would definitely pick up some RBT screens. They are very useful not only for the Milaana but for many other applications.

    @muunch You are correct. The button cap is a cap that was on the top 18mm joint of my EVO for protection during shipping. The bottom cap is smaller and does not fit.

    If I can source them I will provide a link in the future for you.

    Could be an RBT screen, but its quite worn and deformed, burnt black from torching clean I presume? I'd pick up a pack of fresh ones

    Agree.. you need some fresh screens. In the meantime, I'd give that one a good ISO soak. Rinse it well and dry, then try to form it back into the cylinder shape it used to be. You can usually tighten them up a bit by stretching the sides out a little bit. Much easier if you have a dowel or magic marker or something to stretch it over.

    @Ratchett has them on his site, too.
