There are no headshops near my house and I recently acquired some urbals. I perfer to smoke out of a bong, so, can anybody help me by telling me how I can make a reliable bong with easy to acquire idems?
A very easy and efficient method is buying a corn-pipe and a newspaper. Roll the newspaper into the desired sise, fasten it with tape or a rubber band, use your left hand to hold the pipe and the bottom hole of the paper, suck thru the other.
Or you can melt a hole in a plastic bottle, fit the corn pipe into the hole, make another hole to use as choke and smoke from the drinking end.
You can also make a glass-chillum easily by breaking a beer bottle. You just use the neck of the bottle, find a stone that fits well into the neck and voila, glass chillum.
The corn cob pipe idea is good for making the bowl part, if you have a
drill you can turn anything glass or ceramic into a bong. Be very
careful with plastic and also with adhesives-they can be toxic as hell.
Try to go with non-plastic items. Look at a plumbing supply or hardware
store-they have tons of useful stuff there, like rubber rings you can
use to make the bong airtight.
i fitted a socket wrench bit ontoa wide radio antenna and then burned a small hole into a cool shaped plastic bottle i had (can work for any water or soda bottle) and pushed the antenna into the hole then i burned another hole near the top and voila, a bong hope i was helpful.
I don't have any antenna's. what else could I use for a stem?
Would a hollowed pen work or do you think it would melt?
i would say mucho negative. Lets see so you wanna make a bong huh. do this.. take a 2 liter bottle, cut the bottom off, take a piece of tinfoil make a bowlpiece inside the "neck" (where the cap was) push it down about 1/4" - 1/2". poke around 30 holes...with the excess tinfoil,just push itaround the top of the bottle (where the cap screws on)SWIM found it's easiest to take a decient sizedsquare of tinfoil about 2" x 2" (he thinks) then puttinghis fingerin the middle and wrap the tinfoil around his fingerput in top, and push excess round top)put the bottle into enough water to cover the bottle to the neck (under the bowl piece) put your herb into it. take a lighter, light the bowl and pull up slowly, dont let it out of the water.. when you are CLOSE! to the bottom of the bottle pull the tinfoil piece off (carefully) and put your lips over the bottle, suck in and push down, dont stop till u hit the water... your set for a while now now you have a bong... a GRAVITY BONG!
Or a regular bong, take a 2 liter, drill a hole in the side. but a straw through (a big straw) at the end fit a tinfoil piece to the straw, tape it make it decent sized like =====U (bigger but that shape) and drill a carb in the back, put the straw into the bottle fill with water until the straw is in it and your set.. just model it after a regular bong
not a problem dude... the gravity bong is probably the best and most herb saving method of ingesting pot. the high is like no other, but expect to want to take a nap at somepoint during the day. SWIM used to do Gravity's and then go deliver food, only when he was doing something was he awake, at the end of the night... he was tired... if u are going to do a gb, let me know SWIM will give u the best way to make one
1 - 600/510/710 ml pop bottle, any one will do fine.
1 - 4-6" straight tube/pipe, prefeably made of metal.
1 - A Bowl of some sort, one of those ratchet socket thingys works fine, or u can just use tin foil.
- Some tape
- A knife
Step 1: First take the bottle and poke a hole the same size as your
tube about 2 sixths (2/6) up the bottle. Insert the tube at an angle so
it's angled down into the bottle. The tube should be as far into the
bottle as possible and as close to the bottom of the bottle.
Step 2: Get your ratchet socket and put it on the end of the tube thats
outside the bottle, this will act as your bowl. If you use tin-foil,
form the tin foil into a bowl shape however big you want.
Step 3: Make a shotgun hole/carb. You should make this hole kinda
small, make it so you can easily seal it with the end of your finger.
Also it should be half way up the bottle approximatly. Put it anywhwere
around the bottle u want as long as its half in the middle.
Now your ready to go. Heres how to use it if for some reason you dont allready know ^_^.
Fill it up with water until about an inch below th "Carb". This is so it won
leak if you tilt it a little bit. Now get some nice bud, fill the bowl,get
out a lighter, hold you finger over the carb so its sealed, put your mouth
over the top of the bottle where u drink from, put flame to the bud and start
sucking (sick i know) while still covering the carb. Take the flame away then
un-cover the carb and continue sucking to let the fun times begin.
p.s. i got that diagram from another site.
Hey this is just from experience but ifswim isgoing to make a fast easy bong take a 2 litter bottle works perfect for swim take anything and poke one whole in side of it just take the bottle and ur finger and set the bottle down and stand ur finger beside the bottom of it and were the knuckle touches should do fine take some aluminum foil rap it around ur pinky finger and put it in the drinking mouth piece were the cap is and fold it around the outside of the bottle to make a bowl were the cap is and i do mean u have to take the cap off just throw it away and poke wholes in the aluminum foil and take a pen and gut it were u have a hollow piece and stick it were ur knuckle was were the whole u made and then make a carb shot gun whole etc watever u wanna call it just poke a whole about a finger length or 4 inches from the cap anyways that should have explain it if it dont here is easier instructions.
easy instructions tools needed, 2 liter coke bottle basically anything that holds air i have even used a vicks 44 cough medicine bottle before, u need a pen or anything hollow that u can suck from that is about 3-7 inches and some aluminum foil for a bowl, aluminum foil goes in cap pen goes in bottom side and carb whole about 4 inches from top just experiment its fun u can make one from anything that holds air or water if u see anything in ur house u wanna make a bong out of just remember this if u think its impossible, improbable, unlikely but impossible no, nothing is impossible , hope i helped if u dont understand post back and ill try to help u out more or i can tell u of many other ways from waterbongs, waterfalls, bongs, pipes, blunts, joints, even if u only have a ciggerete box i can show u how to make something to smoke from im the mcgyver of bongs lol or however its spelled anyways payce.
go to a music store that sells trumpets and buy a trumpet mouthpiece, they are probobly like 5-7 dollars. it fucking looks like it was made to be smoked out of. its all metal and has a perfect bowl with a small hole in the middle that turns into a big one. just melt a hole in a soda bottle and put that in and you have a bong. shit works amazing.
btw, if anyone here has a trumpet, i know a way you can smoke out of it by just adjusting some tubes. Edited by: dags
A milk jug works too. If you're realy in a pinch, nothing like a soda can for a quick fix. But time and effort you can make some really cool bongs, some I've found even better than anything store bought.
Volume = Filtration
After making a few junky bongs out of the PVC sections [remember, DON'T use PVC!], I decided that filtraton is an important characteristic for my bongs to have. I swiped a one-gallon institutional-size plastic mayonnaise jar with screw-on lid and washed it out. I stuck some PVC pipe through the lid [remember--PVC: *bad*] and poked a hole in the side of the container for a length of plastic tubing. One end of the tubing rested on the bottom of the jar. The tubing came out the side, wraped around the neck, and ended in a corn-cob pipe. A bent coat hanger encircled the neck and stuck out a few inches to support the tubing and pipe. It looked huge--it looked weird--but it worked great.
I always filled up the entire gallon with ICE WATER before packing bowls. While it took a little bit of lung power to initially pull the smoke through the water, it was worth it. The smoke, after passing through the ONE GALLON of ICE WATER as small bubbles, became so cooled that it felt like oxygen when you brought it into your lungs. Stoners passing through my room took enormous hits without realizing it and got baked beyond compare.
While that bong wasn't sophisticated by any account, it definitely gave the coolest hits ever. I miss it for that reason, and I am still trying to find a way to make a bong with optimal filtration AND easy draws.
The rule of thumb to keep in mind when considering how much filtration a bong will have is simple. The three characteristics which matter most are the coldness of the liquid, the size/number of the bubbles, and the time the smoke is in contact with the water. The one-gallon bong I made turned out to have the best filtration because 1] I loaded it with ice, then filled it to the top with water; 2] The smoke broke into hundreds of tiny bubbles inside the chamber (maximum surface area!); 3] The bubbles travelled through about nine inches of water to get to the top.
Man, I wish I'd thought about this shit when I played trumpet... and
even more so when I started playing a baritone. How I would have
loved to play through a resinated mouthpiece... Oh well, those
times are gone.
the best easy way to make something to smoke out of is making a
waterfall. take a big deerpark waterbottle or any bottle with a plastic
cap that has so seal thing u don't want the kind of cap that gatorade
has. melt a hole with a 1 cm diamater at the bottom of the water bottle
then take off the cap and melt out all the middle of it. but keep the
part that screw onto the cap untouched. after removing the plastic from
the middle get a square piece of tinfoil and wrap the tinfoil around
the bottom part of your pinkie to make the bowl. then stick the bowl
into the hole in the cap. wrap the rest of the tinfoil tightly
around the cap you want the tinfoil to go under the cap. then take a
needle and poke about 20 small holes into the tinfoil bowl then fill
the bowl with weed. then put your finger on the hole on the bottom of
the bottle to hold water in then fill the waterbottle up. screw the cap
on and hold a flame to the weed and take your finger off the bottom of
the bottle to let the water flow out. the water flowing out of the
bottom of the will pull the flame onto the weed do this untill all the
water is out of the bottle then take the cap off and take it all in as
fast as you can. do this like 3 times with good bud and you will be
really fucked up.
sry it was so long really tho it's probrably the most
simple smoking device i have ever made with the exeption of a tinfoil
A while back swim managed to craft a double chamber double diffused perculated bong using 2 cookie jars and a cigar tube, a 20 oz bottle and a bowl he will read this later and consider taking pictures and writing up a tek. right now its just being posted for a mark in bong making history lol
Another good way is to use a section of a radio antena as a stem and those small things that bakers use to make designs with icing on cakes. Fasten that on the antena with tape or even weld or soder it on if possible.
I heard we are not supposed to use the antennas. the inside is supposedly coated with nasty dust. like galvanized stuff? like the 'wrong' side of aluminum foil is said to be?
also if you want, u can copy that pic to ur computer and then upload it as an attachment. takes a few extra minutes sometimes but that way people will always be able to see it. links usually go down after a while and it's a nice pic.
a friend of a friend suggested fashioning one out of tin foil using a pen or pencil to shape the stem ...letting the foil become "loose" at one end, carefully bend ( so that you don't crease the foil ) in an upward fashion which now becomes a bowl. A screen can be made by using a small peice of foil that fits inside the bowl and poke tiny holes in it.
