    SWIM makes homade bongs by heating up the side of a pop bottle until it starts to melt(you will be able to tell) then before a hole is made stab a pen tube through it to use as your stem then put a foil bowl on the end

    Metal screen (found in sink heads; used for filtration of particulates in the water)

    First place the metal screen inside the metal door stopper (at the wide end). Then Poke a hole in the side of the bottle for the slide (metal coil door stopper) & another 4 a carb. Next fill water level to the bottom of the slide & ther ya go:thumbsup:

    I used to use a "sobe bong"
    you need:
    -Sobe bottle
    -razor blade or a knife
    -a screwdriver
    First take a screw driver and at the bottom of the bottle there is a indent, hit the screwdriver through there to make a hole. Then rinse the insides with water to get the glass out.Second take the cap and a knife and pop out a plastic lining inside of the cap. Then poke many small holes in the cap enough so you have enough sucktion but so the holes aren't big enough so your "tobacco" doesn' fall through. Finally turn the cap upside down and tape it to the top of the bottle where you drink from. and you now have a dreat gravity bong.
    Sorry for the sketchy directions. hope this helps someone in need.

    **Dunno how to edit:

    Jus read the conepiece part (idiot) Certain lynx cans have these parts you can rip off from under the tip, which can be used as dope conepieces perfect shape, hole n everything.

    A person HIGHLY recommends not using tape, plastic, copper, or aluminum. Why? HEAT! **INSERT:: Heat will melt plastic making fumes, melt tape and make fumes, heat copper and make fumes, or heat aluminium and make fumes. All those fumes get inhaled into your poor body. Use some fucking common sense.** A person knows of a simple way to make a good bong, or "yotti, dazer, yott, popper" bottle. Simply take a 500ml or similar pop bottle, peal the label. For the 'piece' take a straight glass or metal tube, the diameter of a cigarette, anywhere from 4" long and up, whatever size works.

    Use a lighter to melt a clean hole about an inch or two above the bottom of the bottle, and insert tube through hot plastic to make an airtight fit. Next slide the tube out and pack one end with a snip of a cigarette THAN the green, or just green if your lungs can't handle tobacco. than use packing tool to push the mix together tighter from the bottom end.

    Insert tube into bottle and brew, wait for the entire yott to cherry and you will feel it want to pull through to the water, simply haul harder for a brief moment and air will rush through into the water making a "popping" noise. Exhale and feel the head rush.

    this is a way that worked for me a few times:
    - Aquafina water bottle
    - tube of a pen
    -small socket
    -tin foil

    worked like a charm

    "Spliff/joint Bong" any coke bottle etc, burn a hole in with a cigerette half way up just slightlty smaller than a straw. put a straw through on an angle towards the bottom.

    Roll a spliff/joint with a rolled cardboard filter and insert the filter into the straw. add shottie hole if needed, add water and smoke away.

    Thus you never have the bullshit of dirty old bong make em as you need em. you can puff puff pass all you want without the need to re-pack light that shit all the time. The beauty of the spliff/joint is you can hit as much as you can handle, you cant ever finish the cone piece....unless you can inhale a whole spliff/joint

    In the past Billy Smarts has effectively used candle wax to hold the down-tube in place making an airtight seal.

    Swim just made a home made bong using a:

    1.25L Coke bottle.
    'faber castell' texta
    pen (to poke shottie hole)
    tootpick (to make the cone piece)

    1. Used a lighter to heat up the plastic for a shotgun hole stick a pen in there for a nice size.

    2. Heated up a hole about 3-4cm from the bottom it melted :(

    3. Stuck a texta Tube in there.

    4. Used chewing gum as a sealant (had nothing else, and it gives it a slight after taste :))

    5. Used aluminum foil as a cone piece.

    Sadly I had nothing to test it with so I got like a few 'grains' of tobacco from the bottom of empty packets (all I could find) and tested it, it worked yay.

    my personal favorite is the waterfall bong.

    1) Take a 2 liter bottle
    2)make a hole on the side of the bottom of the bottle to where water can come out like a waterfall.
    3)make a decent size hole on the cap to where you can fit something to hold your pot, such as a bit or foil bowl.
    4)pack the bowl, set it aside.
    5)fill the bottle with water making sure that the hole at the bottom is covered.
    6)screw on cap, light bud and let go of the hole.
    7)wait till water is gone and get as big of a hit as you want.

    FOR FUCK SAKE!!! Why do people use plastic pen peices and aluminium foil? Are you people fucking dumb? Have fun burning that plastic and getting a nice brain-cell killing head-buzz. PLEASE refer to my above post.

    SWIM wanted to try salvia and needed to make one for it... got great results with a 5/8" socket, a metal pen body which fit snugly in said socket, a water bottle, and aluminum foil for a screen- he used a lighter to heat the pen body so it'd punch a hole in and fit snugly into the bottle, and it worked pretty well. SWIM tells me the foil tasted awful, but it was what was handy.

    you know whats even easier?

    1) heat side of bottle with lighter....poke straw through it...or any clear tube
    2) add water
    3) layer 3 strips of aluminum foil...wrap it over top...push down...creating a bowl..
    4) poke holes in that bowl...

    It's basically the reverse of what everyone else has suggested...
    you light from the top...and inhale from the tube...
    the smoke gets pulled down into the bottle instead of up..
    and it stays trapped for quite a while...lol

    this way you don't need to worry about your cone piece at all

    you can also tune the intensity of each hit by how wide your tube is.

    If you want to go the extra step.
    Make a bowl out of the bottle cap.
    that way you can make 5-6 ready to be screwed on.

    Gravity bongs are easier to make again. Just get a two litre bottle, cut some small holes into the lid to make a bowl, so you can put the lid upside down onto the bottle, cut a wee hole in the bottom of the bottle. Then you just fill in with water with your finger on the hole, light your weed, take finger off the hole, the smoke displaces the water, put your finger over the hole when the water is gone and the bong is full of smoke, then you have a bottle full of smoke. It's a lot harsher than normal bongs, but it's handier to make if you have no pens or foil or anything. Why I tend to call it a budget bong... I never have pens. :/

    I can honestly make a homemade bong in less than 30 seconds...


    Empty water/soda bottle


    little wrench tool bowl (not sure what they're called, but that's what I use to put my weed in and put on top of my pen tube)

    Ok, first, you need to empty out your pen, meaning make it into a tube.
    2nd, u burn a small enough hole on near the bottom of the bottle just so ur pen tube can stick inside, you're using that as ur down stem.
    then u born a hole a little higher on the side of the bottle, that's where you hold the hole so the smoke can stay in the bottle till you clear it out.
    3rd you place your little wrench tool bowl on top of the pen, they have pretty much every size, so 1 of them should be a perfect fit for your pen tube.
    you use the top of the bottle where you drink from to hit the bong.

    It honestly sounds like more than 30 seconds, but it's really not and its super easy.
    If any of you are interested and don't really understand my directions I can make a little video of the directions I don't mind...it's honestly the best home made bong ever and it works even better than a $100 german glass bong...(not over exaggerating)

    ABSOLUTELY The Easiest Way to Make a Dirt Cheap Emergency Bong

    You need: an unopened pop 355ml can or a beer can, a sharp blade, a glass, a lighter, source of water, something to smoke

    Use scissors or a key or a knife to make a horizontal hole at the side as closest to the bottom as possible like a piggy bank hole no larger than an inch wide and 2-3mm in height, while holding it sideways and bottom up and 45* as if you are to shotgun the can

    drain the can in a glass you have ready to drink after you smoke

    make tiny holes at the top 4 or 5 of them size of 1mmx2mm like so


    Now put your finger tightly against the bottom hole and fill the can completely with water through the top holes

    wipe the top with a shirt dry

    put your smoking material over the top holes tightly, completely cover the holes

    go outside or stand near the sink

    take a ready lighter, light the material aflame
    at the same time release the bottom hole, keep torching the living out of the material while water is running out

    when the water is no more, stop torching the ash, bring the lower hole to your mouth and inhale

    you will get 1big to 3smaller bong hits

    Congratulations, you just smoked your pocket waterfall bong! Repeat

    Alien Sex Fiend added 191 Minutes and 51 Seconds later...

    Are you ready for a challenge? This is a very easy homemade bong, bong this time.

    You will need: 2L empty pop bottle, empty 355ml pop can, a stick of kids modelling clay, scissors, a knife


    1look at the picture.

    2take the large bottle, cut a hole in the lower part of it tight enough to squeeze the can. remove the cap after cutting.

    3take the open empty can, and make a dime-sized hole(its easier to cut a square hole) on its side closer as possible to the top hole you drink from. now turn the can upside down and make 4-5holes in the bottom. you don't want to make these right in the middle, a little bit to the side(closer to the same side of the side hole). thats your bowl. its easier to pierce with a knife while you press the can against the wall.

    3stick the can upside down through the plastic bottle. position it on a slight angle just like in the picture so you have both holes in the water, it will be easier to draw the smoke. make sure the rim on one side is firmly against the inner side of the bottle. make sure the bowl holes and the side hole point away from you towards the butt of bottle

    4take your kids modelling clay and make a sausage or a snake. wrap it around the can like a scarf and press it down well. make sure it is air and water tight.

    5 Done!

    Now fill it with water, hold it on an angle, stuff it, light it and rip it! Enjoy

    My personal way includes

    -16 oz. Gatorade bottle
    -Plastic pen tube or decent sized plastic tubing
    -Rachet Wrench attachment (i believe thats what theyre called lol) big enough to fit in the tube
    -foil to use as screen or actual screen

    Take your gatorade bottle and burn a hole near the bottom.
    My advice is while heating up the plastic push the tube thru as well which will force it through and make it fit much tighter
    Place metal piece in tubing (make sure this one fits tightly as well and has no rust)
    Place foil with tiny holes or a metal screen in piece
    Add bud and add water and there you go take you at least 5 min

    I used to make bongs without a bowl, using a joint instead (you still get to smoke through a bong but don't need a bowl, hah!). This is the easiest way if to do it if you don't have access to a proper bong and don't wanna be smoking out of makeshift bowls made of out plastic and tin foil!

    First roll a joint with a longer than normal cardboard roach (I'm european, I guess in the USA it isn't costumary to use roaches, for some reason I can't understand).

    Then grab a bottle or other container. Take a hollowed out plastic pen, a tube or a straw, and stick the joint in one end of it. Cut a small hole in the bottle in the bottom part of it (use your brain as for exact height of hole). Put tube/straw through it, it should sit nicely and in balance.

    Cut another small hole in the top third of the bottle, for air mixing while smoking.

    Fill bottle about halfway.

    Light up the joint.

    Uncap bottle. Smoke out of it.
