    hey welcome to the forum the wax/oil paste is useful as it keeps unfinished wood stems from drying out over time If your wood stem is from DV, they use an ingenious process to really get their waxoil into the wood...you should be good for awhile. If the outside starts to look dull and...

    I finally produced a design that I have been R /D for a couple of years. The desire is to make a longer, slim stem that retains a mouthpiece/condenser, chamber, and airport. Basically a true DV but withoutca spinning mouthpiece. The inner bore has 3 sections of ID. The mouthpieces are...

    no problemo bro Im a bit embarassed by the whole mixup....that condenser sticking out the front always seemed wrong, but I didnt connect the dots. All squared away now. My condenser material is a bit larger od than the reg DV ...A bit closer to 5mm. It does close off a Ti tip what is the...

    thanks so much bro your info go me onto the right path...at least reg the Ti tip the clean ti tip I have for fittage testing, is non compliant in its smaller bore, almost the same as The SS tip. Using that defective tip, furthered me along the wrong path. I grabbed a "in use" ti tip and...

    woww that answer really surprised me. I obviously dont know the omni concept so, how much does the condnser stick out past the end of the stem, when the condenser is fully extended ( as it will go further into the Ti tip) thanks

    hey all would like to know the travel distance of an omni condenser....or condenser length at both its most open and most closed position. - few pages back, I showed my take on a PMO poormans omni. I just made the condenser long enough so it would go from fully closed tip, and the usual...

    burying a couple of o rings in the stem...now thats some serious work You plan on having inset grooves the thickness of the rings i.e. having the condenser slide against stationary o rings or elongating the slots so the orings stay stationary on the condenser, and the whole thing slides as...

    the stem looks nice...that slight waist in the airport area will help center the hand so,if you pressed the condenser into the stem, I am assuming it is not adjustable. You must have set it so it would work with both the ti and ss tip bore...is there that much of a diff in the condenser insert...

    hey thanks bro for sharing yes, truing once the bore is cut...very important I should get a drive spur also...that spinning around under load without it, drives me nuts sometimes Post a pic if you can of your lathe sometime and if you ever have an extra piece of that Flower Quince, I would...

    hi @TommyDee regarding wood, early on I decided to primarily use species which have a low allergy risk…thought of the VC as a medical device. so, maple, cherry, madrone, canarywood, holly, pear etc. The downside to this is that the most beautiful woods are the most allergenic. if I were...

    hi @Kal I think there are as many diff ways as there are stem creators... the kind of lathe and accesaries you have will dictate alot. Yes the whole pen mandrel approach depends on finding those bushings...I was not sucessful, and avandoned that approach @TommyDee use of collet chuck and a...

    poormans omni stem after some shaping wpw! pretty wood how long is that stem? your lathe def has more longitudinal travel than my little Taig that stem looks like it could incorporate my sliding poormans omni approach, but then the length would be outrageous...dare I say, obscene?
