If i were you, i would only smoke out of a metal pipe that you buy in stores, not a homeade one. BUT, if you were really smart, buy a glass piece, it will be a good investment and won't have the shitty taste of a metal pipe. Peace

Metal pipes are fine. Don't make your own. Use only the ones you buy at shops. Dicking with metals is dangerous. If you smoke any metal that has been galvanized you'll have a siezure and can go into a coma. I don't recommend fucking with makeshift metal pipes. Use only stainless steel, nothing else.

copper bad. brass...also bad, i think. someone back that up or prove it wrong, please - i'm curious now that i think of it. but yeah, steel/headshop metal is fine. i don't mind the taste. it's my preferred way of smoking when i'm by myself but my smoke buds don't like it. that's ok, we bong and sherlock enough. and the gas mask...and hookah...man, gotta stop thinking about it.

depends on what kind of metal and how hot its burning, or more importantly, what its melting point is. if the melting point is at a low enought temprature then it can flake into your lungs. bad news man, but if doesnt burn that hot then its pretty much safe. brass might cause parkinsons disease, but since its being used in a vap (therefore not burning that hotly) then its relatively safe. some unsafe things are making pipes out of aluminum. either foil or a can. cause your putting direct fire on it (and when your hitting your pipe, the fire is being fed mass amounts of oxygen and raising the temprature alot. trust me, i was in metal shop in high school and if your gas welding you can increase the temprature from 500 Fh to 4000 just by blasting oxygen through it.) if your gonna make a metal pipe, serch the net for a list of metals, if they are dangerous or not, and what the melting point is, if its above 600 degrees then your pretty much safe, i would go with a higher temprature if you can. then go and pick the shit up. wash all the shit in hot water and dishwasher soap to get any metal flakes, dust, anything you dont want to smoke out of it before its made into a pipe. if you want to be 100% safe then buy a metal pipe from a trusted company (like, for example, lets say, grasscity!). or just forget all the hassle and get a glas pipe!

keep tokin

What about aluminum? Im using a homemade aluminum one untill i get a new glass piece. Haha, we got a gas mask too, and also a hookah, but we only take that out on special occasions (birthdays, holidays, 420).

i'll just say this in case you dont read my long post. aluminum is not good to use. it has a low melting point, which means when your smoking weed with aluminum, your also smoking aluminum. the shit flakes off into your lungs. i would also highly recomend you dont smoke through a lead pipe :smoke:

keep a'tokin on

aluminum depends. you can get all kinds of anodized aluminum pieces, but foil and cans have a whole bunch of other chemicals in them as well. Personally, I'd rather have glass, than a metal pipe. When I started smoking, some of my friends had metal pipes and the taste of glass was always so much better.

It's not going to up and kill you right away. Depending on how much actually comes off and goes in your lungs it could take a long ass time. Someone would have to do a study showing how much mass different metals actually lose when heated. Then we'd know which metals are safe or safer. Anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium seem to be safe enough, but I'd like to see the actual loss from other things like copper and brass.
