smoking from a copper bowl

Why not save up some money and buy your own bong/bowl? It's only $40 or so for a good starting one, and trust me, they will hit better than any homemade device you'll come across (unless you know how to cut and form glass.)

Copper has a high activation point, that is before it starts releasing a toxic vapor. That point is around 600-800 degrees. Most people who work with copper use torches at around 900-1100 degrees (Copper also has a very high melting point). Unless your using it for a long time, because over an extended amount of time, it will degrade from intense heat exposure, you shouldn't have a problem. Enjoy what you've made, but I'd save up for a nicer piece...or switch to brass which has a MUCH MUCH higher activation point, or nickle which is even higher.
so what your saying is that all i have to do is not to go over zealos in smoking from the bowl and just wait alittle while in between bowls and i dont have to worry about dying or some thing?

Plumbing copper is extremely toxic and will kill you. Use foil while you wait for a glass bowl.
Or at the very least make an apple pipe. Use just apple with no foil or plastic.
Aluminum is even better than copper.
If you have to make a bowl, just use a steel socket or something.

take a light bulb, cut the black ring thing that screws into the light socket, use a screw
driver to clear out the little glass light up thing, use some salt and shake it around to
clear it out. After wards rinse the entire thing with water, and let sit for about 5 minutes...
then take a normal dasani bottle cap and it should screw on to the brass part that you
hopefully do not cut off. Poke 2 holes in the cap 1 for a bic hollowed out pen cape and
one for a carb. Hopefully you know how to use a vape if not then just find a youtube vid.
good luck happy smoking

man why do peopel say its ok and soem say its not can someone give me a definitive awnser about smoking from copper ???
It's NOT OK dude. I personally know 2 people that got copper poisoning from smoking. One almost died and has permanent damage. Plumbing copper is extremely toxic and also has other chemicals besides copper.
Just smoke from an apple or roll if you can't get a glass piece. You can also carve a bowl out of hardwood. Many tobacco shops sell wooden pipes. There's lots of options besides copper.
