We'll hook you up next time, brother.

I want to hold you to this lol. Still absolutely loving my IO Neo pipe, and have been drooling over the convectoriums for a bit. Continually adding and removing different ones from my cart. One nagging thought has kept me from pulling the trigger. I was wondering if it would be possible to make one where the top of the bowl wasn't so recessed/the Neo didn't have to stick half way in to reach the herb. Think making a shallow inset ring as the lip for the bowl where contact will be made to preserve the convectorium aesthetics. My idea of a perfect convectorium would have the inner lip of the bowl up much higher so it could potentially be used with a Flowerpot, or DC-Elev8r. Have the herb chamber or just below it taper into an 18 or 14mm joint that could accept a glass bowl like the Purr glass Neo bowl, or the glass bowl from my herborizer. I think there's potential to make the ultimate infinitely versatile beautiful desktop bowl/convectorium with a change to the depth of the bowl and how the hole at the bottom of the bowl below the screen is sized/tapered.

Now if a convectorium like this isn't really possible, I'll probably stop hemming and hawing and order one as is lol. They're all beautiful works!

Hey, Glad to hear you are enjoying your pipe!
Some thoughts on your comments:
-two reasons for the current configuration: I wanted it deep enough that the Neo could stand unsupported and stay standing through a fairly substantial jostle & deep enough to get the rim of the hole it sits in past the round tip of the Neo to the flat sections to allow air flow. Positioning it that deep is not a hard requirement, but I do not want my products to cause any damage to other devices.
- Another reason for the depth is expanding the "Air Heating Chamber" to include the space outside the Ceramic tip and inside the CONVECTORIUM, preheating the air as it enters the Neo. You will also find the Neo is warming the wood block slightly, which makes subsequent pulls heat faster.
- I have been planning to make a CONVECTORIUM that fits an 18MM taper connection, but had not considered a multi-device option. I think I will stick with the plan of making one for the Halo / Atlas (original conversation on this topic)
- on of the challenges in this concept is varying airflow strategies:
- The Neo wants a tight seal between the tip of the Neo and the top of the herb chamber. Air flows into the device between the glass and the ceramic 1/4" from the tip, into the coil chamber and out though the center of the glass.
- The devices that connect with an 18mm glass joint want a tight seal around the sides of the 18mm joint, with air entering above that seal (between the glass and wood or from the back end of glass).
- That is probably the biggest design challenge.

So, that is an intriguing idea, but I am not sure I have a solid solution. I think it best that I try to make something that works independently with another device. After I have learned what works well for that, I would be in a better position to make a multipurpose unit. I wonder if making a wood plug that bridges the two is a good idea...

I will add two new CONVECTORIUM to the shop in the next week or so. I have new blanks staged to start work next in Sycamore, Bloodwood, Canary, Myrtle, Amboyna Burl and Rosewood. The next batch will have some more affordable species and some more expensive/exotic specimens.

Thanks for the suggestion(s) and let me know if you have questions. I will drop you a note when I have thought about this more.

My Convectorium arrived! Works great with the 18mm adapter after putting an o ring around it to complete the seal. Thank you so much @CDXX Pipes I love it! This is the perfect companion to the Flowerpot B2 so far and I can’t wait to try it out with the rest of my collection. Really preferring the performance (and appearance) of the Convectorium over that of a water piece.

though about one of those last year, thinking it would "hide in plain sight"
even asked him about something small, just big enough to wrap my hand around,
then I saw some of the portables available and decided a walk around the block wouldn't kill me
beautiful wood, and I like that your using with different devices!

Updates on the Neo CONVECTORIUM:
First, I listed some new works over the weekend.
Shop for CONVECTORIUM now

Canary, Australian Red Mallee and Sycamore

Second:
@coolbreeze clued me in to the fact that the CONVECTORIUM pictured above went through some changes after use. Basically the hole at the top opened wider after a few sessions of heat/moisture and was not allowing for a good seal with the glass adapter. He was kind enough to work through it with me and was able to correct it with a paper gasket.

If you previously purchased a CONVECTORIUM and either had a similar experience or got it prior to the inclusion of the 18mm adapter, I want to try to help. Contact me here or at the shop to see what we can figure out.

With these latest units (and probably all future) I have increased the diameter of the top hole and included a silicone gasket to increase to odds of getting a reliable seal when using an alternate 18mm connecting heat source.

None of this impacts the operation with a Prrl Labs' Neo. While the CONVECTORIUM are designed specifically for that device, I love that you folks are coming up with other uses and bringing me new ideas.

FC Sneak Peek:
I searched the world over for a well-made 14mm MALE J-Hook. gave up and asked Thick Ass Glass to make one for me.
these bowls now can be used with your favorite water piece or as a standalone pipe.

As promised, We now have Briar Burl Injector Bowls listed in the shop. See link below.
CDXX Pipes shop

I have included one of the new Thick Ass Glass 14mm Male J Hooks with the better of the two. I have a limited supply, but should get the remainder in the next few weeks. I will upgrade the other to include the J Hook if it remains for sale. TAG also stocks them and may still have some available.
Thick Ass Glass shop

The Herb Chambers are about an 1 inch / 26mm deep, 0.7 in / 17 mm diameter, with a slight flare at the top. This should position any 18mm Injector 0.5 - 0.8 inch / 13 - 20 mm from the bottom of the chamber, giving you that total for flower and airspace.
Pictured with Flowerpot & Old Head Freight Train injectors.
We will also produce some bowls for 22mm Ball Vapes if there is any interest.
