Emergency pipe repair!
    #4543572 - 08/16/05 09:12 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

my bubbler busted in the back of my car, not like shattered but more of the stem just 'popped' off. Its a clean break without rough edges or missing material.

Is there a glue i could use on this temporarily or should i just take it to a glass shop and see what they can do?

Since it's a bubbler and not a short pipe I'd think that some superglue or silicone or whatever you have on hand would work fine. When making MacGuyver pipes I find that if you use glue it tends to melt after continuous use. But the stem of a bubbler shouldn't have that problem, and since your alternative is buying a new pipe, I'd say try an adhesive.

hot glue and electrical tape. don't use super glue, you'll prbibly end up inhaleing some of the fumes.

no hot glue, think about it, heat melts the glue to apply so therefore heat will melt it again after its applied. I used it on a makeshift bong when i was younger and i had to repair it every time i smoked out of it.

To fix glass what you need is epoxy. Go to walmart, buy some medium grit sandpaper and the 15 min epoxy (its in the adhesives section, the 60 sec stuff is ok but i find it loses its "grip" quicker. Sand down the broken parts on the glass and apply the epoxy. Make sure to hold that fucker tight for at least 5 min, bonds in 15 min, full set in an hr.

My buddy broke my bong earlier this year and its what ive been using to keep it operational. But, ive noticed that the resin tends to loosen the bond somewhat, to over come this i put a layer of glue OUTSIDE of the glass as well as in the break.this way if the inner seal comes loose the outer seal will hold and it will still work. This will help prevent the thing from just coming unglued as well so you dont have any nasty accidents. GL, its always sad to see a piece break.

nah, most epoxys have a high melting point. If he lets the pipe sit for an hr and clears out the vapors he'll be fine.

i had a similar thing happen with my bubbler. the stem broke off inside (fell of a table) with no way to get at it. so i took my dremel with a dimond bit and ground out the hole to get the stem out. i made the hole big enough to fit a slide tube in (with the rubber gromet) and presto a good as new bubbler.
works great and has made cleaning a breeze.

peace

you'll be fine with the epoxy, there's no vapor to be inhaled once the glue has bonded and set. Just make sure to let it sit a while after the full set to rid the chamber of anything left over from the exothermic reaction. Once its solidified and the remaining vapors dissapated, there wont be any more unless you flame the epoxy seal directly.
