    TinyMight / TM 2

    FYI, I tried buying 15mm rimmed baskets from AliExpress, they don't work and fall out of standard wall thickness stems. They might work with an o-ring around the outside of the basket but that's more trouble than it's worth. It seems the custom ones from TM and VGoodiez are the only ones that...

    TinyMight / TM 2

    My TM1 was delivered this way new. I think the retailer tested it (normally good) and forgot to turn it back off (bad). I must have pushed the button getting it out of the box and bag because it was very hot when I first took it in hand. No lasting harm was done thankfully. Retailers...

    What vape is best used without any water filtration? (Completely dry)

    Like many people, I often use my small rig dry, so there is that option (but still needs the water pipe adapter). Using it dry doesn't cool quite as much as with water but still cools significantly and less flavor is lost. My coolest and best tasting vape used natively is the Ghost MV1 (but...

    Wiring a foot pedal momentary switch with three wires to an IH

    Switches like this one can be configured in one of two ways. Normally Open means the circuit is not connected until you hit the switch, Normally Closed means it is connected most of the time and disconnects when you hit the switch. You just pick one and ignore the other wire (wrap some...

    Discontinued Ghost MV1

    I think Summer's point may have been that this thread (the link was just back to here) is the most complete documentation of that rise and fall to be found. The comparison to the Delorean seems appropriate, both were over-engineered, over-priced and focused on solving problems no one...

    Seattle Area 2:1, 1:1 etc CBD Strains?

    You need to go the to medical dispensaries. If you have a medical card you can save a little bit off the taxes. Dockside in Seattle and The Novel Tree in Bellevue (across the lake) have excellent selections. My wife uses a high CBD strain of 9lb Hammer for pain relief.

    Glass 101

    Alcohol is the standard solvent used to remove super glue, so yes that would be a problem. You'll have to clean without using solvents. PBW (powdered brewers wash) or one of the "green" cleaners is probably your best bet.

    I've heard of people who fixed it from above with a small crochet hook, or something about that size. Hook the loose end of the spring and pull gently. You only want to flex it back up by about 1/8 of an inch so go easy.

    Question about glass thickness

    @Green420 , most vaporists prefer the smaller pieces marketed as "dab rigs" rather than more traditional bongs. For vaping you don't need, or really want, a large volume or an elaborate perc, they tend to steal flavor. These labels are somewhat arbitrary so there is plenty of overlap in...

    This is exactly how I load, works great. I always use a basket screen as it gives a more even roast, less tendency to produce a ring. The cooling unit tends to get clogged up with resin too fast.

    Boiling point myths and the science of flower vaporization

    Nice write up, thank you for that. It's always driven me crazy how people who go on about the science of vaping talk only about temperature and ignore time and pressure.

    TinyMight / TM 2

    It probably requires a machinist but I want someone to design a heat exchanger that fits down over the air intake holes and uses the incoming flow to cool down the outgoing vapor. Look at the design, it's already doing some heat exchange, it just needs to be taken to the next level. I won't...

    I don't take the o-rings off any of my vapes, haven't had a problem so far. I don't do long soaks, just a couple of minutes while I'm cleaning something else and then it gets scrubbed and rinsed with water. Haven't noticed any loosening.

    Any recommendations for a good 4 slot 18650 battery charger?

    I have a 2 slot Nitecore that charges at 0.5 A and wouldn't buy it again. It works fine but is sooo slow. The kind of cells we use can charge at 2 A with no stress on the cell. If I was to do it again I would spend more money on a charger that can charge at least 2 cells at 2 A each (beware...

    I always like a little math puzzle. The ave US price for eletricity is $15.75 / KWH. A 3000 mAh battery cell can be converted into having approx 11.1 WH of energy at the nominal 3.7 V. That means it costs approx $0.17 to charge a cell with a perfectly efficent charger, adjust that price up...

    They have a 15.7 mm and 16.7 mm, which of these sizes did you pick? I purchased some 16mm silicon caps from Amazon but they are just a little too tight and not safe to push all the way on. Do you ever push these on over a rimmed basket? Can that realistically be done without the load going...

    Thanks for putting up a context. Improvements to taste are what we need for most vapes.

    I have some rubies lying around that are meant for that or trapped between baskets in a long thick wall stem I have. Haven't been going to many movies lately (whatever happened to movies) so hadn't gotten around to it.
