DIY butane vape

First of all, this thread is for all diy butane vapes. Please share your own builds and let’s all discuss.

I haven’t seen a previous diy thread for this. If I missed it let me know and we’ll get a mod to combine.

To start things off I’m going to share my diy butane vape:

I’ve been messing around with diy vapes and put together a rough rendition. Officially called the “Anchovy Slider,” this is working prototype 1. Planning to record a walkthrough of the entire second build, and will detail all parts throughout. 90% of the parts are from amazon and all parts can be purchased online.

Wood is cherry, glass is for rolling as a mouthpiece, silicone o rings, ss mesh basket, and 2 diametric magnets.

tools used Outside of acquiring the blank: hand saw, hand drill, clamps, 2 part epoxy, ruler, sharpie, parchment paper

As far as functionality goes, the only area of concern planned to update in both v1 and the future v2 is the glass. I don’t trust the quality and am unsure if they are boro (probably not) and how well they handle repeated heat cycles.

this is all part of the opensource cannabis community, and once refined every step will be shared. If you’d like to collaborate, please be aware that the plans are opensource, not to make that intoxicating moolah cash $.

Let me know thoughts, constructive criticism, and your own builds/ideas!

What if you "wedged" the design and void the turn-back on the draw tube.
I don’t quite follow, can you explain the wedge?

The turn back was part of the design to allow the wood to cool the vape rather than needing much glass. The vapor hits 3 elbow turns before hitting the mouthpiece so it’s very smooth. I actually would like to see if others build their own, but plan to do a few more variations myself; one with no “mouthpiece” at all, just the glass intake and a smoothed out draw corner.

I'm thinking the heater tube block sits in a pocket where the vape is wedge shaped. This removes the transfer from the lower block to the upper block. I assume the transfer is for user comfort.

Would you look at that. Well yes with a little more flair please.
will definitely experiment, but I also like using the wood as a more intricate cooling mechanic. If we can fit a 90 somewhere I think we should:myday:

There are others out there much more skilled than I am; many who maybe haven’t shared but may want to get their diy builds out there. Hopefully we can get some more guys in on the action with unique diy innovations :borg:
