Some basic bong questions:
    #3918880 - 03/15/05 01:34 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

OK, I'm in the process of converting a 20 oz Sobe bottle into a bong. It's pretty crude, but I put a fair amount of time into it. I have 3 holes in the cap on top, one with a bowl and stem which reaches down roughly 3/4 of an inch from the bottom, one has a straw for the mouth piece, and the other is going to be a carb (I think). Now, here are my questions:

1. How much water can I put in it? Should I just fill it as high as I can without getting water in my mouth? Does it matter how much empty space there is in there?
2. Should I use another straw for the carb and extend it so it's slightly above the water level?
3. Will anything condense that I don't want to if it passes through too much cold water? I know that the boiling point for THC isn't too high, but I don't know if this will be enough to affect it.

Sorry if these questions are retarded, but I'm not in a position where I can test this out properly, and I want it to be in good working condition by the weekend. Thanks for any help.

Throw that away, and get yourself a PLASTIC bottle. Any shampoo-type bottle will work.
Now, since you have a stem and bowl you won't need a pen and foil - GOOD.

Do this: Get a lighter and heat up a small area of the bottle about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom. When the plastic gets real soft, PUSH your stem into and through it. If it's just the right temperature, the plastic bottle will actually "mold" to your stem shape, making a perfect funnel-tube for it.
Next - Heat up the other opposite side, a little higher than the first. This time, poke it in with any pen. That's gonna be your carb.

And there you have it - an easy, reliable bong that doesn't waste weed.

If you think I should throw it out because of smoke loss, it has been completely sealed so it's perfectly air tight.

you should never use plastic for a bong unless it is pretty thick and some kind of rubber plug is used to hold the stem. all too frequently during a thorough smoking session the bowl will just melt through the plastic, and you will also end up inhaling fumes. the sobe bottle is a damn good idea. as for the water level you don't want it very high because the water will filter out some good stuff. you also don't want it too low because you might not be able to clear it. use a water level that is slightly higher than what you can comfortably clear. experiment. you might also want to try using warm water, some prefer it.

Instead of a sobe bottle use a half pint wide mouth jar. It's just the right size to hold with one hand and makes a kickass bubbler.

Fuck all these people. Ingenuity is cool.

As for water, dont fill it real high. Mebbe half an inch above where the slide enters the water...You want air space to fill up with smoke, so you can get some big hits.

You dont need a straw going to the carb. Just cover the carb hole with your finger or whatever while you fill up the chamber with smoke, keep sucking, remove your finger, and the air pulled in from the carb will zap all the smoke into your lungs.

Nah, cold water is cool. Actually, I'd say its probably preferable. I love to fill up the neck of my bong w/ ice shavings and hit it that way.

Cools the smoke, so it's less harsh on your lungs. Pretty effective, especially with some ice in it.

I know of the perfect bong. No shit.
I'm not going to give the source cause we aren't supposed to. But i'll tell you..it resides in the City of Grass on the web.

Glass on glass, abut 18 inches tall, with an awesomely huge bowl and a shotgun. Small over all, but the hits are fucking awesome because it's percision glass on glass..everyone who hits it says "ah,shit". Plus..it's only like $25.

sounds like you've already got your bong worked out...you're right about having three holes..i wouldn't bother putting a straw in that carb hole...just cover it with your thumb like someone else mentioned. you're going to have to do your own experiments to figure how much water you like to have in there...me..i'd go with just about 2.5-3 inches of water in it, that way you can get big rips off it...

if you keep another unadultered sobe cap with you, you can make a little kit where you can take out your holey cap, put it away, and replace it with your regular cap and no one will know the difference...then you can stash your other pieces somewhere else wher ethey're hidden. that's the beauty of making your own... i can't do shit with my 20" bong cause it's so obvious.

yea the sobe bongs work great. I made one in a similar fashion except i have a glass drill so i have my bowl coming out of the side. I find that water level doesnt particularly matter, but if ur a heavy inhaler then make it lower so u dont get a mouthful of shit. i think the sobe bottles work best if, well, sobe is used as the water (if u drink it afterwards that is mmm mmm good). i use mine with salvia though which has a much higher boiling point so normally mine is stock full of water. i dont even have a carb on mine though (forgot) so im not sure about that either.

Oh, it worked wonderfully... except my friend threw up right after taking a massive hit. Other than that, it was good. And I used the straw for the carb so it would reach down to the bottom and when I let it open, the air would rush in down there and get all the smoke out instead of going right from the top back into my mouth.

I used to have a home-made setup just like yours...they rock! If you like the sobe bottle, try to pick up one of those wine jugs with an ice chamber in the side...you can make a two chamber ripper with the same technique. Cool water in the main chamber, ice in the ice chamber, pull back, and you're RIPPED!!
