@TeaCup , the Steamwhistle is not lined, it's wood with SS screen. I tried an aluminum capsule and it juuuusts fits (S&B recommends NOT using aluminum capsules with torches). I tried one of Ed's TnT Stainless Steel Mighty capsules (as below) and while it technically fits, the top would likely become lodged. You could probably use the capsule without the lid as a liner/container. That would keep the chamber cleaner, but the torch would still heat the remaining wood surfaces above and below the capsule, so it may not insulate completely against, say, a wood allergy.@coolbreeze : Hey man, could you tell me a little about the Steamwhistle. Is it lined with anything inside? Could it be lined with something to take the wood out of the equation? And could it be modded to fit a different mouthpiece? And last, could you add some cooling beads inside? This was a nice surprise Chris gave us! Thanks CB.
@TeaCup , that final picture is looking up its rump--that is the bottom of the bottom section. The screen is slightly larger and friction fits, but below it is a small ledge that is the top of the tube, which prevents it slipping further. That o-ring sits on a small ledge and friction secures the glass with the ring. That pic's included so you can see the room you'd have for the pad or balls.
Yeah, it's a great torch for bricks. You can get a suitably strong flame and it's slightly bushy, which a brick likes. Downsides are moderate capacity; small fuel window; adjustment is the bottom screw. Otherwise it works pretty well. The Vertigo Serpent's pretty good, too: bushier, not quite as strong maybe. I once got a plastic consumer torch from Dreamwood called the Atomic. I never could find another, but it's got a nice strong, bushy flame as well.And do you like that Scorch torch? I've meant to pick that up many times because the button is supposed to be extremely easy to push on but I never really knew what kind of vapes it would work well with, and getting torches to where I live is a bit of a pain because I have to bother friends to have it shipped to them so they can ship it to me.
Yes, the bottom/bowl is stainless. The wooden top forms the upper half of the heat chamber, so that's exposed, but since the bottom slides into the top, less wood is exposed than it looks. The heat intake is also stainless; in the current build, it's installed permanently, but newer ones will have that removable.You don't have to take a pic of the Diamond but I just looked at their site, oh man, this could possibly be SS lined already, is it?
I used the search function and couldn't find my username so...
I think I've stumbled into Nirvana!? Hello fellow woodies. As one newly obsessed with wood, I've already stumped my toe on an Ed's TNT wood stem that really screwed me up the first time I've used it on a Milaana 3. (Pic below) It seemed as if I was vaping wood resin and wood dust. I've now cleaned it thoroughly inside with a brush and a little dish soap. Wax on the outside. Is there anything else I should do to prime it to produce delicious, roasty clouds? I'm scared to use it at the moment since it ruined the rest of the night's vaping.
PS - if it's off topic here, sorry.
