Salutations,

To the attention of those who need to know, Egzoset refers to some missile that got named after a flying fish (with differing orthographs); i created this pro-cannabic profile near the last quarter of 2010 because of renewed hope following my discovery of vaporizers: as a former hashish smoker i had been abstaining since mid-2007 and only intended to offer an e-Cig as gift instead, hence the surprize. This joyful moment inspired a rocket riding the clouds through blue skies: « to boldly go where no man has gone before »... Then "The Borg" arrived within just a few "home-cultivator" sessions, initially meant to promote relaxation & serenity!

Laughing

My hobbyist focus gradually switched to consumption methods while allergy-related symptoms emerged, in response to over-exposure due to intense tweaking of semi-DiY "Prototyping Platforms" which required many more years of serious involvement before my fantasy-driven "LAVA" ideas would culminate into a most elementary criteria: just to seek "The Shortest Path of Lesser Transformation", to benefit from an exceptionally affordable near-perfect form of filtration if we consider that Mother Nature readily provides suitable packaging for its noble substances by collecting them on a molecular basis, e.g. at the site of genesis within trichome glands themselves.

So... "Micro-Bursting" refers to a lot more than "Micro-Dosing" alone: this alternative consumption method actually discriminates targets by virtue of mass/size in relative absence of thermalization: e.g. tiny features of contact-surfaces go 1st (leaving less noble stuff behind, quite hopefully)... And that's not all! Clean-burning butane paved the way to "Inlet Water" as a "Potentialization" agent applied to "Release/Transport"; apparently "Pulse Heating" significantly limits secondary/tertiary reactions, while it benefits from a potentializing boost. Etc., etc.

...

Quite obviously there still ain't too much love on most discussion boards for VaporGenie's vaporist pipes, though i'm hoping this may help to change that. So lets start with a quick diaporama showing past DiY challenge(s) published by Egzoset:

Google Images: Egzoset VaporGenie LAVA "Bi-Energy" "Hybrid Core" "Micro-Dosing" TinyPic

Please feel free to try search variants and keep in mind it was intended as an invitation to DUPLICATE & PEER REVIEW, which implies it always got to stick to simple/affordable basics! Mainly substractive work (like cutting or drilling)...

Thumbs up

It turns out Egzoset was created in days when electromagnetic Induction Heat technology got spontaneously mocked while a long industrial evolution spreading over decades remained essentially ignored, including Curie alloys somehow... Back then the patented invention (US 7434584/9445629) of Dan Steinberg already depended on "Space Age" novel material, since nearly the Y2K bug era nonetheless (!):

That's Silicon Carbide Foam with a most specific tetrakaidecahedron shape, commercialized as "Duocel":

Which confirms part of it truly *IS* rocket science all right!!

Love

Initially i didn't suspect i'd feel so deceived by my HerbalAire v2.1 table unit, nor that i'd experience discomfort 6 months later... That's one fairly good reason why i eventually wanted to try VG's Classic pipe, after a couple years (only to give it away as gift the next week following my purchase, because i just lacked sufficient operator skills): though it offered Inlet Water in addition to significantly diverging from the dominant "Ovenizer" model (e.g. i got an irresistible/appealing intuition to revisit i guess)!

So... Egzoset's selection of VaporGenie's Classic directly resulted from such design considerations and hence i gave it a 2nd chance in mid-March 2013, the year after, determined to implement a long series of modding/customization experiments which happened to cost me well over 2 thousand Canuck dollars + more time/effort investment than what could be expected from any "newbie" vaporist around. Including this fresh/expensive update demonstrating a failed (though extremely promising) attempt:

Too bad internal Handle-Path containment was lost at the handle/bowl interface!...

Embarrased

By the way please take note of the subtle nuances between these categories:


    DiY involves being in charge from A to Z

    Modding involves some DiY spending in order to implement novel/genuine features unavailable otherwise

    Hacking is a way to avoid paying for existing premium features of commercially-available products

    Cloning is a way to avoid paying for an existing commercially-available product


...

Here are recent publications showing half the potential (as "Plan-B") of an Hybrid Core where SiC foam is juxtaposed to a 17-Holes Metal Disc in order to include IH-driving as a future option (provided it's made of glass for the most part):

Experience demonstrated year after year that words were simply futile in absence of previous 1st-person perspective, yet if there has to be some explanations then lets quickly mention the PinHole and Hybrid Core features implemented using Metal "Tops" to allow convenient conversion to clean-burning blue (torch) flames and beyond; for example a real opportunity to evaluate Moist Impulse Mode, Packetized Micro-Dosing ranging from Mithridatism or Comatose-like Party toking (whichever one may wish, just swap "tops" around)...

In any case never forget VG pipe owners implicitly agree to void its warranty by engaging into similar semi-DiY transformations, hence please don't bother Dan Steinberg with it (i already have and plenty of times...)!

Pleased

Overall what i'm proposing today is to acquire background using VG's pipe as a "Prototyping Platform" leading to even more advanced considerations where a stored Heat Charge is adjusted to match its WorkLoad (Cannabis Trichome Glands, DMT), etc...

And just in case one may feel quite ready to adopt electromagnetic Induction Heat please consider this other alternative that can be made all-glass using a tiny bit of creative imagination:

IMHO it even paves the way to a rational Energy Budget as required by "portable" applications. YMMV!

...

Good day, have fun!! Cool
 

Trippy glass for trippy people.

Operator Instructions:


Quote:
0 - About Bowl loading, Always Fill and Never Pack. Keep in mind the Support Loop located right under a pipe's Cannabic Bowl needs to be "flipped" after removal as this greatly eases re-insertion, simply by screwing it in clockwise. Bowl size/weight is ajusted to match a top's temporary heat-storage capacity using that Support Loop.

1 - With butane and/or it's related compounds present in the lungs path just make sure there's ALWAYS a CLEAN-BURNING flame to convert butane from such stream into relatively safe superheated Water Vapor and Carbonic Gas, while taking care to inhale with much less force (by lifting the thumb over a pipe's PinHole) to Pre-Heat the Hybrid Core of a customized Sphere almost SEPARATELY. Filtered butane is Paramount and proper lighter maintenance too.

2 - NEVER let a flame touch anything as this will result in the addition of soot plus other nuisances. All that is required to be captured by the Flame-Catcher to inject a "Heat Charge" (or “Energy Bubble”) has to do with the Energy-Carrying Exhaust + some Radiative Heat.

3 - NEVER light up or extinguist a butane lighter close to the Flame Catcher. Flint-Wheel Yellow-Flame models generate health-hazard particles in the spark while the Blue Flame ones may fail to consume butane cleanly (extinguish at random and/or spitting out some contaminant droplets not convertible by fire)... Briefly put, ALWAYS wait for a flame to STABILIZE before it's taken close to the Flame-Catcher Aperture.

4 - When a primary PinHole is available lift thumb during Pre-Heating to enhance the Hybrid Core's transitional "Shield" effect (as fresh air pours in). Stop torching after the SiC Front Puck appears to glow dim-red (which reflects approximative temperature once that Sphere got sufficiently energized), e.g. between 2~5 seconds depending on a butane lighter. Past this power injection cycle use a temporary "Heat Charge" from the Hybrid Core WITHOUT any butane and/or related stream still present near the Flame-Catcher Aperture. This indirect/residual energy-source ALONE shall suffice to proceed with the actual Vaporization process.

5 - While vaporizing/inhaling try to manage the PinHole in brief pulses, in very short bursts at first then increasingly longer to compensate for lost heat from the Hybrid Core as its energy reserve gets depleted. The periods with no PinHole-obstructive thumb in action contribute to oxygenation of the cannabic stream while promoting early detection of vaporization signs, especially hints as aroma/taste which appear to depend on minimal "Attack"/"Decay" periods associated with the pulse itself (to cut total "BAKING" time)... Think of some method vaguely similar to "pumping" a car's breaks in an emergency maneuver situation, the goal being to probe using a sequence of short pulses instead of attempting to get it done in 1 single long pulse. The start/stop transitions appear to cause TURBULENCE which helps a lot with stream movement (e.g. purging).

6 - A ~125 mg Bowl provides about 5~6 tokes, the leftover can be made useful at a later time to produce relaxing cookies. Don't forget that once in a while even an empty cannabic Bowl can provide some satisfying toke (or two) from a sticky/waxy screen alone. Evidently stronger cookies should result from leaving more THC behind. Yet these days i just prefer not to bother so i vape it dry: used vegetal substrate falls off easily anyway...

7 - It's time for cleanup maintenance when the pipe stops working as usual. Pick a pipe stick wetted with 94 % pure grain alcohol to clean wood VG Handles fast. NEVER allow the wood to absorb water as this would promote cracks in the wood. Metal models are to be prefered when condensed noble molecules need to be "reclaimed", though these feel heavier in the hand while wood's near organic-like aspects would prove more "sexy" (with the benefit of being an insulator). Alternately, wood is also an absorbing material so this makes it less appropriate if/when resin reclaims are desired, especially during a user-training period. The back-face of metal pipes proves handy for quick torch-cleaning of a screen (so it won't generate metal fumes anymore...), with no risk of a skin burn as a result of mass nonetheless. Choose the "Classic" look Aluminium for superior aroma/taste performance + ease of maintenance (+ Single-Hand 2-Fingers manual PH/Purge control, eventually)...

8 - Initially i found the genuine layout with VG's DuckLips MouthPiece was getting uncomfortably hot, the addition of a half-ball stainless steel object down under my cannabic Bowl paved the way to lower-temperature cannabic vapor being sent towards the lungs; as an option it may also help to capture particles present in the cannabic vapor by using a tiny cotton ball which somewhat adds to the cooling action after it got moist. Half-sphere screens were gradually dropped in my more recent versions, at 1st in favour of an auxiliary PinHole located on the MP base, then my whole PinHole concept finally unfolded as a Full-Fledged implementation offering 4 different Fresh Air admission sites along the path!...

9 - When attempting to reset genuine DuckLips MouthPieces to reflect the side-wise preference of an operator (e.g. right-handed vs left-handed positioning) try to never forget about twisting this part while pulling on it with care as its stem proved very brittle. Somehow an helix motion seems more gentle.

10 - The need for eye-contact on a flame tip may require some Flexible Plastic PVC Tubing Extension. A length around 12.5 cm will do and that's a better place where to install the optional cotton ball (strongly recommended), unless a plastic/metal Mating Junction is available of course. Last but not least, such clear plastic makes it easy to monitor butane consumption based on water vapor condensation creating droplets in the tube after a potential abuse situation, or operating error, etc. The Tubing Extension ultimately opacifies if/when abuse continues. End the session and re-evaluate operator skills if this occurs, don't forget to shake off liquid water droplets after removing that tube. Consider this a true "Harm Reduction" self-awareness feature.
