I use a metal doob tube I got off Etsy and it works pretty great as long as you aren’t in a windy area
I went back to the skinny stem because i liked the cooling stem adapter, but i just couldn't get over the fact that there was an open window after using it enclosed with the wood slider.
I hope that i will be able to get others in the future if mine breaks.
its normal doob tube sized (so a little larger than the bowl hole) and this exact thing happens to me lol. I push as much back in the oven as I can and like @PossumMD , I put my thumb over it and blow the crumbs away. I have noticed that if i do a couple quick shakes and don't keep the tube completely filled I can disperse the ground up material a bit so that i don't get as much issue.You guys are making me want to finally try the original stem! I get why the new version is the way it is, but I think I would also prefer the original version of the wood part for the thin stem...partly to protect the thinner glass tube and shrink the wood slightly, but mostly because I like the original method of raising the stem and just having a little glass straw instead of the wooden block mouthpiece around it.
If I can handle the heat from the small stem maybe I’ll have to see if Marc has any of the original wood sections still around.
I do like the newer version with the cooling stem, but depending on the situation I might prefer the original version.
Is it small enough to fit inside the oven? The plastic ones I have are a little wider and prone to spilling a little. Especially sticky stuff that stays in the bottom and then falls in a clump...
They’re still shipping with the new FW7s so I don’t think he’ll stop stocking them any time soon. You still might want to order one or two before he moves on to the Firewood 8 though, just in case. I think they were $7 each.
same here!I tried the OG exactly once before I changed over to the coling stem, no thanks.
I even cut the original stem to make two more adapters for my hula's ... I won't try the original anymore ...
guys, do you put the lip of the short glass (adapter) to the side of the ceramic to prevent the hula + short glass from fully disengaging?
I also added a piece of felp to prevent the stem from moving so easily.
I am confused and don't really understand what you guys are talking about lol I have not taken apart that little adapter, it does insert flush into the ceramic, so maybe the lip is on the other end with the silicone then?? I would like to have more of these adapters too but I don't know how to cut glass like this myself...
So that little glass stem that goes from the ceramic with the o-ring to seal, into the cooling stem with the 2 little rubber stoppers and in O-ring.
That glass stem itself, appears to have a lip on it on one side but not the other. I swear to God I just thought I was blasted last night and imagining shit/overthinking but apparently I wasn't lol. If this is a real, intentional thing, I would assume the flared/lipped part goes into the ceramic side, and the smooth part goes to the rubber/stem side, but what do I know?
The flush part I was talking about was the cooling/Hula Stem, if you have the little rubber stoppers and O-Ring set up, it sits flush into the stem on one side, and but the spikes on the other side prevent the adapter from being fully inserted. So either way, lip or not, if you have the rubber on the skinny (hardeee harr harr) it will fit flush into the stem one way but not the other - provided all of the stems are the same which I also sort of doubt.
I also would like to have more adapters just in case lol but wouldn't have the slightest idea on how to cut the OG stem to make that happen
Oh I definitely noticed, with the cooling hula stem, that it is not the same on both ends and only inserts into one side LOL
Yeah that could be correct about the location of the little lip, I think that's where mine is, it came assembled with the silicone so I never took it apart and don't know what the tip of that end actually looks like... Very difficult to see the lip, but I think I can feel it, and it does catch a little in my ceramic, though it also still pops out very easily lol
To confirm, in my experience the small glass stems that come with the cooling mouthpiece kit do have a small lip on the side the silicone is installed. I think they're basically the original glass stem with the bottom part chopped off. I think the lip helps to get a perfect seal with the cooling stem, but it's likely possible you could easily without. The main thing to avoid would be trying to jam the lip side through the o-ring I suppose.
I love the wood very much and would never want to not have the option to have the wood one. But I think I would love a Firetitanium 7 or Firesteel 7. I love this vape, but as its my daily, and I live in the 100% humidity in Florida, the wood on wood slides are not going to work forever.Just received my Firewood 7 a few weeks ago. I am really enjoying it so far, no real issues except for maybe as stated above loading the thing.
Where do you feel the biggest improvements could be made to the device? Any improvements that can simply be made third party, or through the iteration of the 8? Any concerns about the devices longevity?
Probably the one thing that annoys me most about the device is when i slide it too far and have to push it back in.
For those consistently getting consistent ABV, what's your typical grind consistency, and tamp?
I use a BCG Medium plate and a SCS, so my material tends to be kinda fluffy. As far as my tamp, I've tried really light (just enough to keep it from falling out), to packed down a bit. My bowl is usually about 3/4 full as well. Temps are set to 390/400/410 (new settings), and I temp step through all three usually, with about 2 hits per setting. I've also played around with draw speed and how long I hold the button as well.
My abv always tends to be kinda green in the middle, and charred around the edges. Trying to figure out how to get more even ABV and extraction. However, I will say when I've stirred; I'm not getting anything else vapor-wise or taste-wise out of the "green" material, so it may still have all the good stuff stripped off anyway.
Longevity definitely seems like a concern, not really in terms of anything Firewood did wrong; it just comes with the territory of using wood. I feel that I am more cautious with my Firewood 7 than my other vapes.I love the wood very much and would never want to not have the option to have the wood one.

I still want the walnut for sure, but wouldnt mind a "beater" to keep in my backpack 8)

Anybody using this on the go with them, any great storage/case solutions that you guys recommend with the Firewood 7?
