broken Bowl- Fixable?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by sendaf, May 28, 2010.

  1. At the end of a long (shitty) day i grab my glass bowl to relax. Placing my bowl on the windowcill i quickly turn around to lock the door and hear a loud bang behind me... my bowl fell off and crashed to the ground breaking in half.

    It was a pretty nice bowl and I would rather not spend the money to replace it. I am unsure of how to describe the break but the neck piece broke off from the bowl piece. Luckily both pieces fit back together and I think that some hot glue should make the piece sturdy enough to smoke with.

    Is hot glue the best option to fix this thing? any info from people who have done this sort of thing before would be appreciated.
     
  2. don't use hot glue...

    look into some glass glue. I hear gorilla glue works well, but I don't know from personal experience.
     
  3. How much do you value your life? Sorry to hear about your piece
     
  4. Damn, I've dropped my bowl a few times but it's never broken. I'm not sure what I would do if I ever broke her.
     
  5. Hot glue? :laughing:

    If the break is near the mouth where it doesn't get warm you could use JB Weld. JB or high temp epoxy is your only option. You can't use iso to clean afterwords.

    Don't use any kind of glue. If it even gets warm near the crack just throw it out.

    You can only really fix it if you know someone who works with glass.
     
  6. OR you could check out your head shop and ask if they know any glass blowers that can fuse it back together for you.
     
  7. Duck Tape FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :hello:
     


  8. so many conflicting opinions....my glass bowl broke too. I wrapped the little dude in tin foil and it is now a half glass half tin foil bowl. I am so poor.
     
  9. Duct tape?

    I think finding a blower to fix it is going to end up not being worth it for you as far as $$ goes, unless that pipe has extreme sentimental value or it cost a lot of money or something. If I broke a bowl that I purchased in the $10-50 price range I'd be like oh well, tough shit, and buy another. Trying to find someone to fix it well and for a reasonable price seems way harder than just buying a new piece. Personally I know I would be dissatisfied with a DIY fix but I'm sure if you wanted to try there is probably a glass adhesive at your local hardware store. Again, spending more money on what is probably a temporary fix. Sorry your pipe broke :(
     
  10. I know someone who had a bowl break on them and they fixed it with what I believe was Gorilla Glue. Worked really well, I didn't even notice until he pointed it out to me after we smoked form it.

    Get creative...just takes a little thinking to come up with practical ideas that won't destroy your health and/or fuck you up with chemicals...

  12. Yea man if the flame heats up the spot where you placed the chemical, which I'm sure it does, just buy a new bowl or make one yourself. There are many toxic substances in adhesives which probably become even more dangerous in their gas state of matter.
     

  13. I thought that this was really obvious to the OP, but I guess not haha
