    You should give it a test run - hold a lighter up to some before
    bothering to cut the right size. I think it should work though. I'm
    pretty sure its metal (at least the one I have is).

    Foil will work just burn the hell out of it to burn off the bas stuff. Then get a needle and poke hols in it so it will be like a screen. The headshop sells screens, or you can go to homedepot and take one out of the display faucets hehe.

    Alot of houses have faucets that you can unscrew and take the screen, though then your water is unfiltered, so your left in a dilly of a pickle

    Are you talking about like a glass spoon? I twist up a pice of paper towel idk the size of a orange zig-zag twist it up like a joint then put it in there where ur mouth piece is right by the part you hit. It works great you just have to get a paper clip and move it around so it wont let the ashes to suck through and will allow air to come threw and collects mad gooey rezin if you like rezin. Or you could take a steel wook and put it in there an ddo the same thing then i guess you could smoke the steel wool when your done?

    Look at your faucet, there should be a cap you can unscrew on it. Under this
    cap, you should find all the screen you need. ;-)

    Enjoy.
