    Okay, so SWIM broke her bubbler pipe on the outside of the bowl. Is it safe to continue to smoke (there is a lot left in bowl)?
    SWIM could only light the bottom correct-and smoke from there?

    SWIMs gluing agents might melt and release toxic fumes. Best to buy a new one, even smoking a lightbulb is better and healthier in the mean time.

    I don't see why it wouldn't be safe.

    Its just a broken pipe. Just don't inhale in broken glass.

    just make sure you heat evenly, when glass has cracks its highly susceptible to shattering , swim should just finish that bowl then look for something else. tinfoil works great just make a "boat"

    For realz, those fumes from ANY type of adhesive are impossible to not burn and inhale. SWIM used to use fireproof tape to glue a piece of glass over the hole as a temporary fix so he could use the pipe until he was able to get a new one.

    Fireproof tape is just foil that will not catch fire, and has one sticky side. however the sticky shit will still melt and exert smoke and fumes when burned.

    The seal from the peice of glass could be airtight, and not allow anything to leak through, but not burning the sticky shit on the tape isnt possible. Don't bother trying it, just use a lightbulb and scrape the remaing stuff out of the bubbler.

    My monkey has the same problem.he is thinking of just putting foil to fill broken part , just take it slow. Cuz like was said, broken glass is more susceptible to breaking when heating..! Happy camping

    My tortoise and I found out that a pipe with a hole broken into it produces much larger clouds than a pipe with its stock airflow hole. This seemed to be the case for blue flaming atleast

    That little hole(if not near bowl) is especially useful when smoking the left over resin in the stem. (Cover main hole above bowl) heaps of smoke,,,,,

    After not enjoying the combination of gorilla glue in my liquid happy I soaked the broken pipe (minus the stupid glue part) in small amount of water, put on my plate in microwave and made nice rebake. Isn't that what everybody does?? Or am I truly an over the hill hillbilly? If so: I am a sponge fill me with your wise and sage advice masters...(then I can pretend I knew all along)

    I've seen people repair pipes with torches, get it hot enough the glass will start melting and the cracks will go but everytime you do it, it gets thinner and thinner
    i would suggest a quad jet though because they get the right amount of heat onto it and spread it properly
    most single jets are too focused

    just an idea but don't burn yourself! put some gloves on first :)
