    Hi There,


    I just had to post this after getting myself a new toy for processing my 'panas.

    So, ever since the new plastic Opanas came out I have been using a very cheap $11.35 dremel that I got from the Chinese tool store (Harbor Freight) to grind em up.

    And it worked fine. But it was underpowered and took 45 seconds to over 2 minutes to grind up one damned pill! (Ridiculous)

    So, I decided to spoil my self and get this fancy new dremel That I got on clearance for $21 down from $40 (What a deal! 49% off?). I almost bought a Dremel brand dremel till I saw this one on clearance.

    And let me tell you it can LITERALLY grind these plastic pills into powder in like HALF a second. It's just like ZOOM! and your done.

    This piece of equipment runs at 12,000 to 30,000 RPM. As apposed to my old junk dremel that ran at 16,000 RPM and was so underpowered you could stop it with your fingers lol. Thats why it took me so long.

    I couldn't post a link to the pics so I uploaded them to my profile.


    If ya guys want I'll post and instructional video on how to process these the right way.

    SO, how do you guys process your opanas? What do you use to grind em up? i'm curious to know. Of course I know it makes a big difference what kind of sanding bit you use. I personally use a 120 grit, I would like to use 100 but they don't make those (as far as I know). Just as well it makes a difference how much pressure you put on the sanding bit with the pill. If you press hard it will come out coarser as apposed to finer powder if you press lightly. I also no that it is important to maintain your sanding bits as well. If they get worn down (which happens quickly) and you try to grind up a pill you will end up with some chunkier bits and a rougher powder.

    Food for thought! and your nose! ahahah!

    Have a great day!

    Hmmm, I honestly thought more people would comment on this. I mean I know that this is old news and I have in fact been using a dremel on these pills since they reformulated them but I had no idea how BIG a difference a better dremel would make.

    Well, i'm still exited about it.

    If the sanding bits are wearing down from grinding the pills, aren't you ending up with sanding grit in your powder and ultimately consuming it?

    Just a random thought while we're discussing using power tools to crush a pill (ridiculous).

    Have you ever considered using a vice to crush the pills?

    And yeah.. if your sanding bits are wearing down, then you're probably getting a good amount of that crap in your powder. Better check to make sure that whatever materials are used on the bit aren't toxic.

    I know it does sounds kinda nuts having to use power tools on pills but, that's the world we live in today. Btw, a vice would just flatten the pill like a pancake, they are crush proof.

    I'm not to worried about the material from the sanding bits ending up in my nose. The powder is always white and any amount of sand that does find its way from the bits is extremely minute so it doesn't matter. I mean, were talking about a few itty bitty tiny grains of sand per pill. Its insignificant.

    Oh I just remembered something.


    I was working in my garage with my friend and he said "I need some needle nose pliers, get me the one you use for your pills" LOL.

    I have not been in this game so I am curious, what do you do with the powder once you have it?

    I remember reading something about a gel like substance so that even if you have powder you still don't want to snort it because it goos up your nose and you can't add water to it because you have useless non flavored jello opana.

    Thats a good question!

    Well ya see, even if you can get these pills into a powder form they will still gel terribly in your nose.

    Solution!, an anti-gelling agent.

    All you have to do is sprinkle a tiny bit of baking soda to prevent the gelling and problem solved!

    I'd say a ratio of about 1 to 6. see, the baking soda counteracts the gelling with foaming. but you don't notice this happening inside your sniffer. It just feels like the old opanas do.


    I've been doing it this way pretty much since they switched over to the TRF's. Works great.

    In that ratio is the baking soda 1 or 6?
    I did about a third baking soda to 2 thirds opana and there was still slime (I think gel is an understatement, gel I can handle but this stuff is like slime or mucous. When you touch it and there is a string of sliminess that is attached to your finger when you pull it away).

    It still works for the drug to get into your body, but the sliminess freaks me out so much.

    I'm guessing I won't get an answer cause FastMike hasn't been on in about a month. Ah, well...

    SORRY!!

    I hav not been on the site in a while ciz I've been busy plus EVERYTIME I try to post I have to update my emil address first so it's a friggin hassle, sheesh man.


    BUt to answer your question the ratio is for every opana, you do 1 part baking soda

    For example. if you grind up an opana with your dremel like you're supposed to, you take that powder and add a comparable amount of baking soda that would equall 6 to 8 parts of the total amount of the powdered opana pill.


    I am going to make an instructional video tonight when I take my next dose which will explain and answer anyones questions.


    SO! Stay tuned to FastMike5!!

    Just wondering, I don't sniff my meds but can you eat some of the baking soda to counteract swallowing the opena er? I do use a pill cutter to cut them into pieces but that gel is still there, being ingested as well

    Well before I knew this, I took 2 20mg opana er's and cooked them for a bit, I smashed them flat and tried a coffee grinder, that was kinda a huge fail, so since I couldn't crush them I put all the remnants in a glass of OJ and drinked it lol. FAIL for me :/. But luckily they were free.
