    @bossman @Grass Yes @Shit Snacks Thanks for the advice and feedback! There's definitely more nuance to this than I had anticipated, but from what it sounds like, the design I have will work for most users as-is? About the fixed screen: The screen isn't 100% fixed in place, with a little...

    So, I have a little side project going on here. I have a handful more of these than are in this pic made up but honestly there's a lot to the Tinymight and I'd love to hear some of your thoughts! These restricted tip colored vigreux have a narrower inside diameter but thicker tube than comes...

    Just got finished with a very limited little run of these little octo guys, I needed to do something a little different I don't do these often but it always feels good to be creative, even as a maker.

    Ahh yeah... the issue with the glass for those is that, from what I can tell, they are made with a process called "tooling," at least the part that fits into the Musa 510, and I don't have the tool to tool those tools. I did make a whip set for my Arizer EX Q now that you mention it, I know...

    Hey all! I'm reviving this thread again (again) to show y'all what I've been working on recently, however I keep sending off things without taking pics first :doh: I have a couple back burner projects (like Tinymight and others) I want to share with you eventually too (they're just not quite...

    Wishing @underdog a speedy recovery! Also, just noticed the page count on this thread is at 710, I lurk around here a little sometimes and I couldn't let that slide by un-noticed :lol:

    DIY Induction Heater Builds and References

    @TommyDee not sure if this is possible but do you think that the copper coil wrap instead of shielding the tip redirected the field towards the end? Again this is way out of my area, just super fascinating to visualize what's going on in my IH.

    DIY Induction Heater Builds and References

    Interesting result! I wonder if the shape of the copper wire has anything to do with it? I know coils (at least in neon and luminous tube applications) have special properties because of how current flows through them, I wonder if this is similar?

    DIY Induction Heater Builds and References

    @TommyDee that makes sense, so why would the Anvil not require more induction? been reading over this all and really piqued my curiosity, so thanks for indulging me!

    DIY Induction Heater Builds and References

    So, this is waaay out of my area of expertise, but I thought I hazily remembered a professor telling me some other metals (copper, copper alloys including brass) can be heated by induction? Just idle curiosity... For Science!

    *a wild glassblower has appeared* -Talk -Change pkmn -Item -Run I'm alive! I just go AWOL when I'm working on something sometimes... good news though! I may have been able to get my hands on some different colored glass (other than just amber) for the vigreux adapters I've also been doing...

    Vlad/508Phineas Glass thread

    Good observation, I hadn't noticed that before! I think that could be because I leave it mostly standing vertical in the IH when its not in use, or maybe because that's where most of the vapor just gets trapped between pulls? In a chemistry setting they use these vigreux columns as part of...

    Apologies in advance for the double post, Here's another personal past project (circa 2019?) that I'm only just posting now. This is probably the smallest tube I've put the vigreux indents on, and while its not perfect, it definitely takes a lot of the "bite" out of my Dynavap. Definitely...

    Vlad/508Phineas Glass thread

    I think @Shit Snacks has the simplest answer, the 19/19 vigreux adapters I make dissipate a surprising amount of heat, and I have a convenient pocket size too now. I have a tendency to overlook the simple solution and overcomplicate things @cosimo I haven't had the chance to chase the holy...

    Vlad/508Phineas Glass thread

    If I understand correctly, you're after a sipper mouthpiece with a vapor path length similar to one of those full length pieces plus an adapter, but pocket sized? I would have to make it do a 180 u-turn bent back down to the bottom of the unit, kind of like a mini jaylock. I can't take on any...

    @Abysmal Vapor yeah I have people that will use my borosilicate vigreux adapters backwards on the TM, and yeah as long as the temps don't go into the 900F range the glass should be fine, in this case proper annealing will add life to the glass. Quartz usually doesn't get annealed unless you...

    Aw snap! I forgot I had this thread going! :doh::lol: Customs are down for the moment but I always like hearing from my peeps so I'm going to try to use this thread to periodically post past customs (i.e. just glassporn) just to give you all an idea of what I've been up to. I am much more...
