How to tell stem size??
Posted 05 April 2006 - 06:11 AM
almost a week ago, i accidently broke my bowl.....the problem is i dunno what the size of the stem is to replace it.....is there an accurate way to measure it?? i dont know what the size is, it didnt say (i bought it at a porn shop, so there wasnt much detail on them) and the guy didnt really say much except for the price and that it was good quality.....so i was wondering.....how can i possibly measure this soooo close so that i can get the right size??
i need to find out by 4/20 or by this friday.........

Edit : Thats assuming you have a piece of the stem still intact to measure. If its a cheaper bong with rubber o rings and whatnot Ive only seen one downstem size. If it was glass on glass then its either 14.5 or 18mm

im sorry if i sound newbish haha, ive never had to replace a bong bowl before.....and it the actual bowl, not the stem...it shattered right at the o-ring......it pissed me off/made me sad.....cuz a week earlier the downstem (the one the bowl goes in?) was broken by my friend but hes gonna buy a new one and promised a diffuser so thats cool, cuz he smokes out of it just as much as i do hahahaha
i thought they came in a whole range of sizes..........thanks for clearing that up....

I'd just go to a headshop and talk to them, if they say there is infact different sizes for rubber oring sealed bongs then you would have to clean the bong until its spotless(and I do mean spotless), and then bring it in and show them.
Edit: If the bowl/slide just slide in with no o ring it was probally just missing, but if theres orings anywhere on the slide or downstem its not a glass on glass.

Best thing to do is clean a broken piece if shows the circular size and take it with you and say you need this size. Or look for a bong exactly like yours and say i bought one like that yada yada months ago and the stem broke i need one to fit that.

if, say, I was looking for an ashcatcher for a stem with an o-ring (not GonG obviously), would 14.5mm or 18mm work!? and secondly, or more appropriately firstly, how many non-GonG ashcatchers are out there eh
