'The Misty Log' - DIY wooden Log Vaporizer

Hmm.. so you'd need a log with a heater cover/core diameter with either a 12mm external diameter so that the stem could go over the heater cover or with a 14mm internal diameter so that the stem could go into the heater cover. So to get this to work you'd have to buy a length of stainless steel tubing with an internal diameter that will fit the Arizer stem and then build a log to take it. The cost of doing this would almost certainly outweigh the cost of buying two sets of stems - not to mention the work involved.

My advice would be just to settle for two sets of stems, however, if there is some workaround on this the guy who'd know is @blokenoname but he's taking a break atm. I'll pm him anyway and hope for a response.

Thanks so much for the reply. It just feels silly to have two sets of nearly identical but slightly different glass stems, but what you're saying makes sense. I've been playing around with the idea of building a vape for a while and this seemed like a good opportunity - but you're right in time at least it will outweigh everything and possibly in material cost as well. I'll think about it I guess, and hit up my wood-electronic friend to see what he thinks.

How long has it taken you ents to get a first prototype together and how many prototypes did it take for you to be satisfied? Approximate cost if that's at all something you can estimate?

edit: an Enano would be at the lowest price point 240$ CAD pre-tax without a WPA or extra stems, so it seems like a pretty decent budget to build/rebuild a couple options if I can reuse some parts between prototypes. Every other log I think would have to be imported at a higher cost. Woodscents is 400$ CAD.

Sent you a DM.

@newSSE Alan with Heat Island makes a log vape with 7/16" heater cover that he says works well with the arizer stems. The problem I see is that the airizer is more conduction and a log is more convection. So you may end up enjoying the convention high more and may also want a j-hook to cool the hotter vapor from the log. Logs are easy to build and fun. Not very expensive but the tooling adds up. I found a drill press on Craig's list for $25. I used wood from Bell Forest, recommend their cherry 1 3/4" dowel (a 12" long dowel makes three logs) and a 1 1/8 firstner bit for the well. Good luck.
Also Alan sells square logs for around $100 or $125. Definitely get a wpa. Email him asking if he has any square ones with the 7/16" heater on hand / in stock (custom work may be what he prefers to do). It may take a week or more for the reply but the guy's work is good. I think a log is a solid cannabis tool that works well and doesn't break easy. Reach out to him or build your own.
To answer your questions: first one worked. Maybe $200-250 in tools. Cost per log and wpa I build is around $25-30. Have made a handful and loaned one to a friend in hopes he'd offer $20-30 but he never used it. I have a heat island log and copied it. The maker has been transparent on the HI thread with images and such on how a lot of it works. I prefer using the ones I have made, identical innards. For me the original style logs have a 3/8" heater cover which mates with an herb bowl that goes over or inside the heater cover. The bowls that slide in are excellent at being efficient (conserving herb / getting high with less).

Thanks so much @darkstar72! I didn't realize the HI have a size that should fit with the Arizer stems, that's awesome. I'll reach out to Alan through the address on his website.

Your response* is also encouraging in terms of building my own! Will definitely have a look at the Bell Forest. I am kind of tempted to try making my own now, but it depends on if a career change I'm trying to do works out so that I can have more free time to do the project. Fingers crossed! Maybe I'll try to do one regardless.

For liking the convection more, you mean it would be a problem because I would start liking the Arizer less? :p

Thanks again for responding!

Yeah, you may like it less. I had a solo 2 but sold it. I prefer the log but that's a preference. We're all different. I did try the log with a 10 or 12" glass tube / stem recently but I prefer the dhgate dimpled jhook a lot more for the cooling it provides.

Yeah makes sense. I had an LSV and before I cracked the ceramic heater it was definitely a harder hitter than the Arizer. Got the Arizer Air SE as a good quality budget vape for on the go cause I have to use outside due to my current living situation. With my anticipated career change, I'll be able to have a desktop again but I think log would be better to keep my tolerance down cause the LSV bowl was quite big. I anticipate being pretty happy with a log, I've been wanting one for years!
