  • My biggest makeshift was a 5-gallon Ozarka jug that we turned into a massive waterfall in college for a party. Put a bowl up top that held over a gram, filled it up with water, unplugged the bottom (drilled a hole then corked it with a wine cork) and watched the entire thing fill with smoke. Ended up with over 25 hits between all the people there.

    My best one was using a glass drill bit to drill into the top of a tequila bottle shaped like a pistol:

    Put a metal stem/bowl into it, secured it with heat resistant glue, and then hit it at the end of the barrel. I did not use tequila as the liquid though, that would just be wasteful.
  • Is "making bongs" a good enough reason to go into the glass blowing trade?
  • The Chemistry Department at a Major University offers a class called Chemical Glass Blowing. It was awesome. A typical final project that demonstrated skill was a handmade bong.

    I made a condenser.
  • I know it's trashy but I do love making homemade bongs and bowls. Made one from an Easter egg and a funnel once. My pride and joy was the giant soap bottle with a stainless steel slide that you could shotgun yourself with.
  • Having grown up as a tragically un-hip nerd in the 80's I have no idea why any of these are funny or dangerous, or ingenious for that matter.


    oh well....

    Thurgood Jenkins: The MacGyver smoker is a very handy guy to have around, especially when it comes to reefer.
    McGayver Friend: Hey, man, we're out of papers.
    McGayver Smoker: All right. Then get me a toilet paper roll, a corkscrew and some tin foil.
    McGayver Friend: We don't have a corkscrew.
    McGayver Smoker: All right. Then get me an avocado, an ice pick and my snorkel.
    McGayver Smoker: [Friend looks at him funny] Trust me, bro. I've made bongs with less. Hurry up!

    My friend tells me that glass "water pipes" retail for $150-500.
    Cost of materials: $25

    I've been told by an informed source, it takes about 15 minutes to make a $60 pipe.
    Let this information dictate your position on the matter.

    /bonus: informed source is looking into glass-blowing classes, sort of a continuing-adult-education thing.

    My supplier on liquor that may not have been taxed(nudge nudge wink wink) is a glass blower by trade and has a still made entirely of glass
  • I may not be any sort of Einstein when it comes to this sort of thing - my trademark in college was rather wasteful giant 4-paper "big kahunas" - but I think #2 is a dual-action vaporizer. It looks like you blow into it to charge it (inflate the balloon with vapor) and then inhale to take it in. Totally unnecessary and overly complicated, but I am guessing that was the point.
  • Happy 4:20pm.
    I'm late? Sorry... Preoccupied going through recyclables for potential bong parts while high.

    When you heat plastic it gives off all sorts of nasty vapors. Bongs where plastic becomes hot = bad.

    There's a guy who sets up shop at one of the local disc golf courses, he brings a padded briefcase full of handblown glass pipes. He'll regularly sell out in the course of an afternoon.

    Even with the diagram, I can't figure this farking thing out.

    That's because he's been smoking so long his brain is as smooth as a bowling ball. There's a molex connector that connects a standard desktop power supply to the transformer which drops the voltage and ups the amperage and outputs to a bare wire in the bowl. The bare wire heats the bud or the hash which vaporizes and is blown down through the water trap and into the balloon by exhaling into the mouthpiece and following the blue arrows. The balloon fills with cool, smooth smoke and by inhaling on the same mouth piece you draw it out. Presumably you get as much inhaled as you'd previously exhaled. It also conserves the bud/hash by only using what is vaporized when the wire is heating it and not what is used up in burning like a joint

    I don't care what kind of piece you blow... just blow it... *CROAK*
  • This was our pride back in college:

    Nicknamed "Slow Child"

    Removed the flag he was holding, set the bowl there and ran piping down to the middle and filled the insides with water... hit from the top of the head. Good times.
  • I used to have an original super soaker that got dismantled. We used the water bottle and some of the hoses. It was hooked up to a foot pumped inflatable raft air pump.

    You would hold the water container in your hand and work the pump with your foot. The pump would pull the hit when it expanded and then you would push down on the pump with your foot to have it push the hit.

    We also had a n 8 footer in college that we would pull and then use a nitrous charge to push it.

    Don't worry - I came in for the same reason. My smoking days were joints, as god intended, so I was a bit lost as to how these were death traps - glad to see someone answered that for us.
  • I had a neighbor once that had one of these suckers...
