Before the concentrate screens were available I used to place the hash directly onto the pan. I would use a cotton swab to wipe the pan directly after use while still warm.
Residue still built up though and I needed to use a magic eraser every few weeks to clean the pan. It always looked like new after the magic eraser.

I never made a battery powered vaporizer. The pictures show the very first prototypes of vapman. This was in early 2005 when portable vaporizers were still a rarity.

I quoted from the blogpost :)) ! Maybe they meant battery free !!!
P.S
I also dont like batteries and consider them dirty tech,almost any alternative is better :)) !

Hi guys,
I would like to know if there is a way to clean the mid-section of this bad boy ?
I read a while ago that it can be soaked in acetone, but I only have access to MEC (methyl-ethyl-cétone) , is that ok ?
Otherwise, I’ll let it like that, I don’t want to damage my beloved vapman.
Here is a pic of that « dirty » mid-section, have a nice day vapmen/vapwomen .

@vapman Hey,Rene ! Could tell us about the battery powered vapman prototype ? Did it use AA batteries ? Any pics of whats is inside ?

Thank you @Abysmal Vapor!

Yes, they meant battery free, indeed. I told them already and it should be corrected soon.

As long you aren't soaking the wood in the solvent for too long you may well use any other solvent than acetone. The problem with some solvents other than acetone is the content of water which can swell up and deform the wood. This is the only reason why any wooden parts shouldn't be soaked in ISO for too long. Cleaning the wooden parts with ISO and soaking it for only a short time (half a minute) isn't a problem at all. Because acetone doesn't contain any water, all wooden parts can be soaked in it as long you wish. A lot of the condensates can be removed easily with a cotton swab while the part is still hot! Vapman doesn't need to be cleaned often, it is extrtemely low maintenance.


Cheers,

vapman

Thank you to @vapman & @Abysmal Vapor , I’ll give it a try this evening and let you know how it goes.
I’m tempting to order another one ( a walnut one) and a few concentrate screens to enjoy some bubble hash and to not leave my pear vapman alone , I’ll try to clean my mid-section before and if the things go wrong I can order another mid-section with the new hash dedicated vapman 👍
Cheers

It's good to get these tips on cleaning the mid-section - this is a job I need to do soon! :)

As well as cleaning with acetone, can I then use a fine sandpaper to remove slight scorch marks on the wood?

I would then treat it with some beeswax to polish and protect it.

Wow, I just finished my first session with hash.

I made a little sandwich with some degummed hemp fibre and a tiny pinch of crumbled dry sift. Then I sipped on it every now and again for about half an hour! It's crazy how long it lasts. :tup:The flavour is really clear at the start and then the rest of the session becomes nice and smooth. There was no mess to clean up in the pan as far as I can tell.
