so far i havce used coffee grinder screens but have none left
anyone know of any other good screens
Lord knows any house I'm in soon looses all its faucet screens
Screen doors and windows, although usually the holes are too big.
Like unico said, faucet screens. They work great and they are the perfect size.
You can also cut out a screen by cutting one of those metal cooking strainers. Those work great. Your parents might be upset that they are missing a strainer though. I would say buy your own strainer, you would have enough screen to last you a long time. You can also buy replacement pipe screens at any heads up.
anybody know a site which shows me how to remove faucet screens?
I have a screen door in my garage that used to be used for our backdoor
until we got dogs who tore it up. So its just sitting
there. I just cut a square and use 3 or so screens in the
pipe. My town is in need of a headshop
edit: screw it i dont want to fuck up my faucet. therefore i
think ill just go buy some. Any specific kind i should look for

I have a friend that swears that those filters you run paint through to get the specs of dirt out are the best. If someone tries this let me know if it works.
A tea strainer can be cut into custom size screens.
Good point. I like that idea.
I've subsequently raped every house i've ever lived in of all of it's faucet screens.
Yeah, my dorm once had a dorm meeting because all the faucets were in a shitty condition from people dismantling them for screens, and because there were so many holes in the screen windows. It was hard to sit through it with a straight face.

DO NOT USE TINFOIL
Not to jump off topic all of a sudden, but: So using tinfoil really is a bad idea? Iv'e heard from a couple of dudes before that it can cause cancer or something of some sort, although the guy i heard it from was a dumbass so im not exactly sure what is rummored to effect.
As far as the topic goes tho, I think agreees with the faoucet screens, seeing as how they are reusable, being metal and all, at least long lasting.
inhaling tin vapours can lead to brain injury
i'm assuming this is all in regards to prolonged use... but anything i've heard about it has made me think i'd rather swallow a mouthful of ash over time than inhale tinfoil fumes again and again...
Yea, but this all just too bad. Tin-foil works WONDERS, for swim, being real flexible,heat resistant and all. hmm...
it does work wonders
but I will still only use it as a last resort because of potential bad effects
to each his own
The stone was a good idea but there are a few kinds of rocks that will poison you if burned. of course I do not remember what kinds of rock my friend the stone pipe maker told me..i did not have my notebook with me.
deer antler is also bad to burn.
perhaps small pieces of (broken) glass for screens? The headshops sell small glass inserts shaped like jacks for that purpose. Some glass will shatter if hit with heat when it is very cold. So if You leaves his pipe out in the cold, he might want to give his glass a trial run first or make sure to prewarm EVERY time .
I think the screen on the faucet keeps things from crawling into the pipes. and so You does not get a bug or snake come flowing out when he turns on the water.
Otherwise, the screen can be seen when the tip of the faucet is unscrewed. The danger to the faucet comes when it is time to screw the tip back on; if You forces it/if the threads do not match up, then they can become damaged and uneven, this is called stripping the threads and to repair it requires rethreading. You can always replace the screen when he is done, if it is not his. I do not know what kind of metal(s) the faucet screens are made of.
For smoking, brass screens last the longest. The headshop might have sliver or gold colored screens. The brass are the gold colored ones.
the hoses that connect from the wall to your washing machine generally has screens too (sometimes one on each end)....just be sure to cut the water off first or you will have a huge mess (there should be a faucet where the washing machine hose connects to the wall)
We checked with SWIM and he says the screens in faucets are stainless steel and okay to use. But he says that window screens are galvanized and NOT okay to use.
I can't believe how everyone is chopping up their sinks!
Just go to your local hardware-/drugstore, they have screen of various
mesh sizes and material. You buy it by the meter (or foot, I guess), all you
gotta do is cut it into little squares or circles to fit your particular pipe.
