    Most any kind of pipe will do, and it doesnt matter what it is made of glass, plastic etc. , as long as it is nice and tight. I used to make them out of the clear 12 oz liqour bottles so i could see the hit. I would pull the hit into the chamber, let the choke go, and watch the candy roll in. That was so sweet.

    Crack: Resin Hits

    Can you hit a brillo without any rock, and still get a hit from the resin that is in the screen? How many hits can you get from it?

    This is the method swim got for getting a good resin hit out of my crack pipe.


    1)Simply fill swyou's pipe 1/2 or 3/4 or sowith isopropyl alcohol, any kind of rubbing alcohol will do , secure any openings and shake.


    2)pour out the alcohol onto a plate.


    3)ignite the alcohol, and after it burns out scrap up the remaining residue with a razor blade.


    there ya go. The amount of resin left over depends on how long u used the pipe of course. Now swim's seen many people do this and swim did it myself and swim's still alive and have no negative health effects that swim knows of lol. swim assumes all the alcohol burns away. Anyone with opinionson this please post.


    swim never used a stem or brillo, but swim's sure someone could find a way toremove theresin with the alcohol no problem.

    A brillo screen will often hold "pockets" clogged with
    resin and bound by brillo ribbons in a cluster too
    tight to burn.

    It is possible to push the screen out of the short end
    of the stem, then use a pin or thumb tac to break- up
    the screen's tight spots, and reload the screen.

    If it was clogged, then it should be possible to get a
    good hit without even loading a rock.

    A pointed dental tool is ideal for this.

    Poking at the pad seems a bit fiddly to swim. Would the alcohol method also work?

    swim wouldn't because the flame is likely to burn away
    your resin.

    If it didn't it would evaporate in minutes. No worries with alcohol, it's not like acetone or naptha or something (or ammonia sometimes used to cook the stuff, SWIM's gotten a few very nasty hits from that after failing to wait long enough drying time).Edited by: Nicaine

    The the flame may burn away some of the resin, but not as much as you would think as alcy burns quickly. crack pipes, stems, whatever, vary in size so start with as little alcohol as possible. You can do another wash if you think you didnt get all the resin the first time. Second, get as big a plate or something similar as u can find so the alcohol is spread out as much as possible. This will make it burn away that much faster. Also, if you can, swirl the plate around during the burn, keeping the burning alcohol away from the already dry spots. Sure u may lose some resin but i find it as economical as scraping as i always found some resin left on whatever i was scraping with.

    Try re-cooking after you have burnt the alcohol off...this seems to work quite well!!!

    SWIM delivered this one to my inbox:

    If it's a glass pipe that's been in use awhile, heat the brillo very hot (long 'blank hit') then slide it up & down the pipe a few times to melt the collected resins into the brillo. Now remove the brillo and squish it by the sides. Put back in the pipe so it's sideways compared to how it was, then pack it down flat. Now you should get something...Edited by: Nicaine

    Oh Fuck!

    I just love it when there's so much resin that it
    accumulates in a large hit that you can see once the
    screen reaches the other end of the stem.

    Then...

    BAM!!!</font>

    Could you explain further... you're talking about a plastic inhaler, right? How would you keep the rock from just melting through the holes and dripping inside? This is why people use brillo, because a regular screen won't work due to the tendency of crack to melt.Edited by: Nicaine
