  1. Hey, all! Update time

    Whats up, you beautiful people?! Figured I'd drop by and give an update on the recent events of my life and let you all know I'm still breathing. Since my last login: I've moved from Las Vegas to beautiful Saxman, Alaska (part of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough in SE Alaska)I quit my pizza delivery job (part of the move)I got a job at Napa Auto Parts (AKA Service Auto Parts)I sold all of my hookahs and hookah accessoriesMy only intake of nicotine are my trusty vapes With my new life I now live on an Island in a town with a population of ~500. I live 20 feet away from the ocean and in a rain-forest. I sold my car to move here so I either bus it to work or steal my brothers truck (he's been stationed up here for a couple years). I spend most of my time working, and my days off hiking our Island or one of the countless other Islands near me. SOOOO... things are going pretty good for me! I LOVE THE NEW LAYOUT OF HF!!! and I miss you all!
  2. Hey, all! Update time

  3. An Old Face

    AYYYEEE there's that beautiful man!! welcome back <3
  4. Heck yeahh! this sounds like a great opportunity to get back into hookah!
  5. Hey, all! Update time

    Yeah, I've actually been really thinking of getting another pipe to have up here. I don't have much space at the house, so I may get a little QT or similarly tiny pipe (what was that tiny KM pipe they used to have?) I've missed all you people, ILY
  6. Coughing Problem

    It's probably still the packing or heat management. Try to keep part of your pack consistent and change one thing about it then try something else, if that doesn't fix it, change something else while keeping a constant. Pack the same every time and use different holes one time. Then Pack the same and use bigger holes, try again with smaller holes. Pack again and start with less heat on the bowl (hang the coal(s) off the edge of the bowl) and with the holes you had the best results with before (a comfortable draw and good airflow is most important) slowly add more heat until you're getting a good amount of smoke but no cough. (make sure the coals are heated red throughout as well, no more black at all) Remember, too, the bowl has to warm up so give it 10 minutes or so before you add more heat (pushing the coals closer to the center of the bowl). What hookah, bowl, coals, and tobacco are you using? Also, pictures would help (of your setup, the coals on the bowl and started, the foil after poking holes, and the tobacco in the bowl before you add the foil)
  7. Hello from Central Florida

    ^ this thread seems to cover a bit on nicotine and throat hit. Check into that. If you don't find the information you're looking for there, start a new thread and hopefully we can sort out what your problem is also, welcome! And @Bawhee.. HI YOU SEXY MOTHERFUCKER, YOU!!!
  8. Welding A Stem?

    i have, no idea.. but I'd avoid anything with lead. So if you go with solder (brazing) go with the lead-free shit. lol I feel like brazing would be your best bet as actually welding would probably be too hot, causing more issues with the stem. Idk though.
  9. Looking For Hookah

    neat! glass hookahs always seemed pretty cool, they just look like such a PITA to clean. lol. I've never owned one so i can't say for certain tho. I'm definitely curious about how she works out for you tho! looks cool for sure
  10. Hose Question

    yeah, that tubing looks just like the tonics! Awesome, it's always nice to know people. Great score man
  11. Hose Question

    shit.. now I want to buy myself a few new hoses lol
  12. Hose Question

    Those are the only ones that I can think of that are lightweight at the hose port and are flexible.. Maybe a Tonic washable? https://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-9222-tonic-washable-hookah-hose.html I had one of these, it wasn't bad at all, either https://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-9221-tonic-long-handle-washable-hookah-hose.html I always thought htese were cool, and if i remember they're pretty lightweight? https://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-12404-fretted-nammor-hookah-hose.html and the regular washable KM hoses are pretty rad too, I think mine took a while to get flexible though, but after it was broken in lasted me a loong time https://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-10511-khalil-mamoon-washable-glitter-hookah-hose.html that should get you started I suppose. They're all washable too, so no worries there.
  13. Mandalorian Armor

    WOOOT! :D
  14. definitely need more tobacco in there. The less tobacco you have, the less material there is to heat up meaning it will heat faster and lose flavor quickly. The goal, really, is to have as much tobacco and flavoring as possible without it causing air flow issues. With most tobacco (like what you're using in the photo) I like to pack it similar to how you did but higher, like go maybe a mm above the rim of the bowl, then let the foil press it down below the rim. This lets it still have airflow and the foil presses all of the tobacco down simultaneously giving a more consistent pack within the bowl. Give this a try and report back. I think you'll notice a big difference in flavor and how long the bowl lasts
  15. Hose Question

    They definitely seal to the hose port on the hookah. Unless you mean where the tips connect to the hose? Then no, they don't make a full seal, but it really doesn't make a difference. I still get MASSIVE clouds, but as Luka said, you can still use tape on those parts too (also this is a good way to label hoses for specific flavors or make the color scheme unique)
  16. Hose Question

    nuhose and fancy hoses.. The plastic guys. I use them exclusively. lol Kind of awkward when people smoke tho: "hey, i love your eggerman/double wheat combo.... wait.. whats with this hose?" lol they don't really have the nice looks you get from other hoses, but they're super light, and have a wide open draw and are fully washable. they pretty much last forever as long as you dont step on the tips lol
  17. Need Halp Finishing My Hookah

    I have no idea, but any hose should work :)
  18. Need Halp Finishing My Hookah

    Gorilla glue has a superglue that works for both glass and metal, that should work. You'll have to be sure both the metal and glass are sufficiently "scuffed" up with steel wool or the likes.  It doesn't dry clear though, it will be a milky white, and it does expand as it dries so you only need a little. Check lowes or home depot for it in the adhesives section, definitely read the directions too, I think you have to moisten both pieces that are to be glued with water first, then apply the glue with a q-tip or toothpick. I'm sure there are other brands out there, I've had the best luck with Gorilla Glue though.
  19. Looking For Hookah

    dang dude. thats crazy. I spend less than half that for my 30's. mt. baker ftw. lol 50 isn't a bad number. you could probably pick up one of those KM beasts or w/e they are for around that. I don't have any spare's right now or i'd offer one to you
  20. Tailor Brazilian Collection

    beautiful collection. Very nice!
  21. doo eeeet! :D Although.. you've "gotten back into it" soo many times over the years.. it's hard to really trust those words when you speak(type) them. :P
  22. 5 star is by far my favorite. If you need anything special/extra you can just call and he's always willing to help. His team he has working for him also does a great job at making sure you're happy. I once ordered a flavor he was out of, he called me the next morning asking if he could swap it with something else. So I opted for cane mint. He was out of the regular stuff but he had that "specially" bagged stuff and he threw it in with no cm upcharge at all. So i got cm for like.. 14 bucks.. lol One time I called asking if he'd throw in an oyster fork since I"d lost mine. Without question he added it. It's the small things that make 5 star worth ordering from. Time and time again they pull through for me.
  23. I've got something i can give you that can clean your soul ;) I'll give you a hint.. it starts with the letter D
  24. Bad Taste From Hookah

    yeah.. pics or we won't be of much use to you here.
  25. Also sticking to hookah here. I pretty much only vape if my bowl dies or i'm too lazy to pack another (more common reason). A huge contributing factor to this too, for me, is that if I vape consistantly for ten or twenty minutes, I get an INSANE headache that just won't go away. It usually lasts a few hours too. I can only have a few puffs here and there or this happens :( Also hookah is still just better for me. It tastes better, the smoke is more rewarding.
