homemade dab nail
Also dude, unless you’re in a legal(ish) state dabs just aren’t worth the money. They’re fine once in a while or whatever I guess but prices are fucked up and your money is almost always better spent on weed
Or could i put my metal pencil end (where the erasor part goes) into it, and put the dab around and smoke.
DO NOT USE COPPER!! That shit will kill you. Not even joking. When heated, copper releases a chemical cocktail of fumes. Brass apparently is the safest metal to smoke from, but it still releases small amounts of vapor when heated. Buy or drill/make your rigs out of glass. Simple, clean, and most importantly, not fucking deadly. Cheers.
I have a bunch of bottles.
If you can get your hands on some super thick A1 Kanthal you could use that for a safe wire to heat up. So just spit balling here. You would need like 10g Kanthal or something stupid thick. As thick as you can get it without it clogging your trumpet mouthpiece. Stick a long piece of it up thru the mouthpiece and put the mouthpiece in the top of a bottle or some shit. So the bottom of the Kanthal just sits in the bottle and there is a piece coming out of the trumpet mouth piece. DO NOT HEAT THE MOUTH PIECE. Heat the end of the Kanthal and use another piece of Kanthal (get thinner if you want) and use that to dab off the other Kanthal. A1Ka is made for heating up so.
Could i use the copper, heat it up with a bic lighter inside my “bowl” and then dab on it?
Alright, Is there a way i can make a dab nail, (I have a trumpet mouthpiece, some copper wire and a few pencils.)
Just put your hash on top of a bowl, don’t go like heating the shit out of random metals, not only is that precisesly how to release poison from them but it also could shatter them and fuck up your nearby face. Dab nails are made of like specific metals and ceramics to specific tolerances, so maybe you could improvise a rig but don’t fuck with the nail. Order one online or have someone buy you one.
Alright thanks. I just though “Hey heres a coil, which is used in computers for heat, so why not use it?”
r/StonerEngineering: You give a few pot heads a bunch of weed and nothing to smoke out of and they suddenly become engineers. It’s amazing.
For instance, searching for the #glassforsale on Instagram will lead you to a treasure trove of upscale dab rigs. Typically, after you find the dab rig you like, the interaction starts with a direct message to the glass blower, and if a price is agreed upon, the dab rig is then purchased from a head shop or directly through the artist.
You also need to know which gender banger fits your glass. A dab rig with a male joint is compatible with a female nail, while a female joint goes with a male banger. An adapter is needed if you want to use a banger that is the same gender as the dab rig. If you purchase your dab rig without a banger or nail, make sure you know the joint size for future reference.
If you decide to shell out some extra cash for a dab rig from a reputable brand, you can find some truly fascinating pieces that will distinguish you from other glass collectors. Take this fiercely horned Banger Hanger Dab Rig from Bouge Glass or the uniquely shaped Rigception by Diamond Glass as examples of what a couple of hundred dollars can net you on the dab rig market.
Now that you have your dab rig and components selected, it’s time to put a bow on your kit by adding a few necessary, but sometimes overlooked, things to your shopping list. Here’s what else you’ll need to get started:
Keep in mind that dab rigs have three joint sizes, so not every banger will work with your dab rig. The three most common sizes are 10 millimeters, 14 millimeters, and 18 millimeters.
While vape pens have become a wildly popular way to consume concentrates, primarily for their ease of use and discretion, many seasoned stoners prefer to vaporize their highly potent concentrates with a dab rig . With a similar design to the traditional bong, a dab rig is usually made of borosilicate glass and utilizes a nail or banger instead of a bowl.
Similar to high-end dab rigs, there are also artisan-blown caps and bangers that fuse fine art and function together. The Toro Core Reactor and Toro Grail , for instance, are two popular bangers in the $200 to $300 range. Another high-end glass option for bangers and caps is Binary Banger from Mothership Glass , which includes masterfully shaped glass with vibrant patterns. These high-end components don’t come cheap.
Think of high-end glass as pieces that are artisan-blown, not produced in bulk. The techniques that glass blowers use and the amount of time put into a piece will dictate the value of the piece, which can sometimes reach several thousands of dollars.
When we’re talking about high-end dab rigs, the discussion is going to revolve around customization and aesthetics. Social media are also a terrific resource for finding custom dab rigs made from highly talented glass blowers.
How to Make a Dab Rig Kit As adult-use and medical cannabis legalization has led to a rapidly growing marijuana industry, there have been many innovations in the world of weed, but
