Swim thought it would be interesting to find out or ask people if they have any ideas, comments or suggestions on a personal Meth tool kit.
How ever Meth is introduced into the body there is usually some Paraphernalia involved. Smoking, Injecting and snorting are probably the most common ways and tools of the trade are needed for each of these 3.
So does swiy have a tool kit?
What is in swiy's tool kit?
What special little tools do swiy have?
Do swiy keep extra items incase something breaks or gets lost?
A friend of a friend told swim he likes to have everything well organised and packed away so when he is going to smoke some Meth its easy to get set up and start enjoying the most important part - THE METH.
This person has a small hard plastic container with a clip lock lid he bought from the supermarket. In there he can fit
- Medium size glass pipe
- A few used zip lock bags and hopefully 1 full one.
- Straw cut on an angle at one end for getting Meth out of bag.
- Piece of rag for cooling pipe.
- Magic Eraser
Also kept at home and hidden away is another plastic container with a Spare pipe, More Magic Eraser, New lighters, Scales (for making sure incoming items are correct. Not for outgoing).
So please let us know whats is in swiy's dirty little box of secrets.
Swim did check for other threads on this subject and swim did find one other called -The Infamous Tool Kit- That thread was very open and had alot of posts refering to Heroin and Injecting. Swim is trying to keep this thread focused on Meth use.
-Used to smoke -A couple of little bags
-Used to hold the crystals -Some large paperclips
-Used to scrape the little bit of residue left on the bottom of the pipe once done smoking -Some Q-tips
-Used to completely clean the bottom after using the paperclip.
(Keep in mind SWIM is only getting of the little bit left after a bowl so the next bowl can smoke just as well, SWIM isn't scraping the residue out at all.)
-A lighter(Though SWIM prefers mini torches opposed to lighters)
-Used to light the bowl -A glass tooter
-Used for hot rails (SWIMS favorite way to use meth) -A cut straw
-Used to get the crystals from the bag to the pipe
SWIM would like to know though what SWIY means by magic eraser and what it's being used for.
SWIM would also like to hear ideas on more convient tools !
Hidden in my fishing tackle box I have
spare syringe cases (for used ones, they break the tip)
sterile water capsules
a bag of cotton filters
a specially modified spoon
a s/steel knife
box of matches
tea light candle
I used to have a piece of material with pockets on one side that utensils could be slotted into and rolled up and held together with an attached tie. Would fit everything into a package the size of a small maglite torch so it was discrete enough to carry or hide in the car. The spoon was also modified so that it was held into the roll from both ends and didn't need to be removed to fix up a shot.
Magic Eraser is used to clean the inside of the pipe after use. It is used instead of a paperclip and a Q-tip.
Magic Eraser is a very dense and very fine foam pad. It can be found in supermarkets in the cleaning products section. It comes in a small packet about the same size as a packet of cigarettes. It is used for cleaning marks and stains of things around the house.
Magic Eraser is great for cleaning a glass pipe because it cleans any marks or residue quickly and easilly without any risk of scratching or damaging the glass in any way. Just use the top end of a pen or a small stick to push the Magic Eraser into the pipe and rub it around then drag it back out. If for some reason the pipe has burnt or thick black residue on the inside it will not clean this. It is recommended that nothing hard or abrasive be used to clean a glass pipe because of risk of damaging the glass. The last thing anyone wants is damaged glass. Look after the pipe and it will look after the user.
Magic Eraser = "Mr. Clean Magic Eraser", though I think there are generic brands available now.
Magic Erasers *really* do seem to work magic - they'll clean the soap scum/hard water buildup off the shower walls without any chemicals and barely any effort on your part! Gets crayon off the walls, stains off countertops...just really an amazing product. I highly recommend them!
Dr. Scattered, does your friend cut the Magic Eraser into smaller pieces to fit into those tight spots? I suppose one could get 1 Magic Eraser, cut it in half, and put one half in the 'travel kit' and keep the other half in the 'home kit'.
Some one who looks just like me who has my same name and same bith date said this:
1) He has a high quality typical pencil bulb glass pipe to 'duh' > smoke it. He don't smoke much but most Meth friends he knows like to smoke so there is always have one handy.
In fact there are about 4 of them in certain places clean and spotless, one on the boat, also the motorcycle, the RV and the truck so there is always a bulb when Ya need one, and ya Bics every were as He am a cigar smoker so he always has a light every were he goes.
2) A personal wind proof pencil jet lighter, as he like the more narrow focus flame over the old stand Bic's that he keeps laying around.
3) Lots of the larger medical type Qtips the kind with the super long wood shafts, they are good for cleaning his guns and ya his pipe , and
the super long Qtips are good for Meth kink sex, such as taking a wet Qtip with some spit on it then getting nice big Ice chunk on the tip and s-l-o-w-l-y pushing ( details do not belong in this forum, I will elaborate in-depth in the Sex & Drugs forum) I'm leaning You hanging , sorry, lol but some folks just don't want to read heavy pervert kink without a warring.
4) A LARGE plastic irrigation syringe ( no needle ) used to mix up a batch of a special Meth & lube & other ingredients aka 'love potion'
( details will be posted in Sex & Drugs forum)
5) Some typical U100 small syringes for special guests or occasions, lol.
6) A glass tooter tube for hot rails.
7) Micro mini tweezers for picking ice chunks, substitute a cut soda straw.
8) Empty gel caps to brake up an 8ball of Meth stash into many compact separate pills ( he doesn't like tiny baggies because they have a stigma and if they are seen they will be recognized as dope baggies and gel caps can be swallowed 'winks'.
Once a person was to break open a gel cap and then burn up the contents, that person would know to stop and not 'over use' meth like so many of us do, lol ( try it if You have compulsive over use issues ) as each gel cap represent one party.
SWIMs handy toolkit is actually in the form of a handy yellow bag that is carried in SWIMS backpack. Contents include: * a pumpkin carver -this does absolute wonders for scraping, just be careful *small rag -dishrag or hand towel
-dampened and used to cool off pipe and recrystalise after each hit *small camera case (smaller than a classic ipod in length) with a hard outer shell
-used to carry the *altoids tin which is used to carry the actual dope- this prevents smashing up crystals when on the move *a pipe
-used to smoke *some paperclips
-also used to scrape *small baggie of Q tips
-used to clean *funnel
-for when pipe breaks and foil is the only option, or snorting *pocketknife
-cleaning outside of bowl off *a few pieces of paper (like a ripped off part of cig pack or business card)
-folded in half and used to pour dope into bowl
Lightbulb, glass tube (crack pipe from local needle exchange), kitchen knife barbecue lighter, mini torch, paper towels, folded matchbook cover, cards, syringes, soda can bottom, filters, cut off pen tube, speed. For each session craft a new pipe by either hitting lightbulb with knife to create suitable, bowl shaped shards to put speed on and heat from beneath while inhaling with glass tube, or, if feeling really ambitious, knock off metal part with knife, leaving bulb intact and burn carb hole in side with torch, then seal glass tube to top with electric tape. Crush and do one huge rail up each nostril, load the biggest shard in the bag into the pipe and the second biggest as well using the matchbook cover to do so, put some porn on and prepare more rails, hits and shots as the mood strikes.
25 gauge 1 inch 3mL toys (syringes) Yes, they are fun for me to use. :P
Sterile water bottle
My poison casket shaped box container my 'shit' kicks it in until we play
My 'shit' baggie
My "tools of the trade" for my ultimate pleasure; the RUSH...............
Well i like to have 3 cups of water; one for cleaning (only if needed) , the other for staying hydrated (drinking water), another one for rinsing and brushing after smoking(helps prevent meth mouth). As for my actual kit i like to keep it full of these items; a tooth brush, some tooth paste, floss, a diagonally cut straw(for taking the crystal out of the bag and inserting into the bowl), lighters(more than one considering I use a lighter to dry my pipe), q-tips(used only for cleaning not drying because q-tips leave pieces in your pipe if used to dry), a clean pipe(look at forums how to clean your pipe if you are not sure how or keep reading i briefly explain my method of cleaning below), ofcourse crystal, another lighter(used to boil water in the pipe after I'm done smoking to losen anything "torched" and also for heating the remaining water drops in the pipe which is how i dry the pipe so i have no unwanted pieces of cotton floating around from things such as q-tips), and a damp cloth(to cool ur pipe down and help the crystal re-crystalize faster so none is wasted or unnecessarily burned)(please note if you use cloth to help cool make sure the cloth isn't too wet and the water is cold as this will crack your pipe) Thats all I need in my kit to smoke, clean, and help prevent meth mouth.

Correction for the post above make sure your cloth *isn't too wet and the water *is not* cold this WILL crack your pipe.

Reason: Automerged Doublepost
I use a Masterlock Lockbox with a Combination lock on it.
Inside said box contains A Spoon
A Clear Eyes bottle containing straight water
A Stem for hotrails
A Straw and lord knows what else sometimes finds its way in to my box.. )
My adopted twin sister has a makeshift kit. In it I have roughly 20 disposable syringes (5 of which are used and/or broken and in a separate bag in the same kit), a handful of q-tips, rubber gloves, hand sanitizer, several clean baggies, one razor blade and several containers to melt whatever product she may or may not be injecting into herself.
I have two kits: the all-inclusive at home model, and the bite-size on-the-go model
Everything here is stored in a pistol case that stays locked --Alcohol
I use this to sterilize EVERYTHING! The surface of the desk I mix at, spoons, ties, and especially the injection site. --Acetone
This is for purifying my gear if it happens to be of terrible quality --Scale
Mine weighs out to .01 g, so I use it to make sure I'm not getting ripped off and to measure out my doses --Extra rigs
Fortunately, these aren't hard to get in my area and Wal-Mart sells a whole box of 100 for what most people make in an hour. --Extras of everything I take on the go
This includes ties, spoons, a whole box of Q-tips, sandwich baggies, an extra eyeglass case, extra vials just in case a break one (hasn't happened yet) --Sharps Disposal box
Because safety first
ON THE GO:
Everything packs up into a soft eyeglass case except for the pre-filled syringe case --4 to 5 clean U100 Insulin Syringes
You know what these are for --Empty Sandwich baggy
So I can keep my dirty syringes seperate from the clean ones until I can dispose of them --A Small Spoon
For mixing up my gear in --A Sandwich Baggie containing several clean Q-Tips
These are for filtering my gear and to apply alcohol to injection site --A small glass vial of purified water
I think it might be about 20cc, this is for shooting --A small glass vial of rubbing alcohol
For sterilizing equipment and injection site, I have a band of electrical tape wrapped around this one so I can distinguish it from the water --A Child's belt
It has the d-rings instead of a standard buckle and I use this to tie off. -- Diabetic Pre-filled Syringe Case
This thing is super sweet, I bought it online off of that site that sells books and may or may not be named after a river. It looks like an overly large pen that opens up lengthwise. It has grooves where the syringe that you've already filled goes, with a length of slots that keep the plunger right where you want it. I use this when I don't think I'll be able to mix up a fresh hit where I'm at. It's a lunchbox for your rig.
Swim's tool kit (picture attached...)
Because swim prefers hot rails, all day, a good tool kit is definitely required upon any kind of venture into the world, especially since swim is so partial to doing them a particular way...
The Tool Kit (contained inside an old camera that swim hollowed out) includes:
hot rail water-pipe (swim discovered this method because the normal way hurt too much and swim believes drugs should be enjoyable)- This is pretty much the same thing as a regular water-pipe but instead of a bowl being at the end, there is a tube that bends down. It also helps to have some kind of attachment for your nose, which goes the same place that your mouth usually would.
poker- used to scrape out extra dope left on the tip of the tube that you heat up so that it doesn't drip down and catch on fire.
card- for breaking down the lines.
small torch- flame must be big enough to get the tip of the glass red.
mirror- although longer lines are better, smaller mirrors are easier to fit in ones purse.
scale- (very tiny) just in case....
dope- preferably enough to do a few hot rails (a good sized line is about the size of a Q-tip)
also, most of the time, swim likes to save the water to smoke at a later date (since a lot of the dope that doesn't melt and turn into smoke gets caught in the water) this requires two small plugs, one goes in the hole that you put your nose to, and the other one is for the hole where the tube goes, that way it doesn't spill when you put everything away.
I have a blue pencil/make up pouch that I keep everything in except the dope. In my pouch I have my syringes, a little measuring spoon, my q-tips and a hair tie. I have some left over baggies in there just in case I need them. Usually I don't carry my pipe on me but it's in there now along with a lighter.
As for my dope, it stays in my wallet under a spot that has some business cards in it.
I was off the shit for about 6 years before starting up again a few months ago, and one of the things that has brought me no end of amusement is how much tweakers like accessories. Personally, I hate accessories. I dislike having a case full of incriminating crap in my bag while Im driving. I've got a pipe, a torch, and a couple of rigs for the road.
At home, same pipe, couple of torches, a couple of makeup/nail tools for scraping burnt shit, winx, and qtips.
For the "stem" I have found there are 2 options that seem to work the best for me. 1 of which i have discontinued, use a torch cover the hole on the bowl and with the stem up melt everything down to the edge of the bowl. This would form a ring in the stem, and as you kept smoking then melting it down, it seemed like a great place to store that "1 more" you neeed between bags. 2nd optioin, less tweaking required, is get an old windshield wiper. one with the metal frame. Along the leingth of the rubber there is usually 1 or 2 metal sticks. These are very difficult to cut, so id reccomend a torch to burn through them. then with the torch i would bend 2 22.5* bends, one about .5" from the end, the other about 3". this would usually be cut to around 6". then with a little bit of hard work, and you must stay focused. take the end with the bend and sharpen it. this is the had part, if you have a sharping stone or sandpaper, sharpen the end slightly round. so this way when you clean, it only take 10-12 passes with this to get the whole stem spotless. vs using a paperclip and +9001 passes.
Also, if I scrape the stem, I dont smoke it. I snort it. cuz it dont usually smoke for shit.
for cleaning of the bowl, the quickest and easiest way i have found is use a butane or propane to burn any residue, then lick a qtip cleaned the inside, then quickly reburned again with the tortch.
Great use for broken pipes. make a hot rail tutor, using a propane torch, heat the middle of the tube up and addd a bend or curve to it. then for use, heat the bend and go. as all the shit is sucked up, it will hit the bend in the glass and become thoroughly vaporized.
also for cleaning glassware, soaking it in a mild bleach soultion then THROUGHLY rinsing it out. I heard this works well, but i have never tried it.
Hope this helps, if you would like more info on the scrapers. PM
