Gravity Bong help..

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by Italia5239, Aug 13, 2008.

  1. Hmm, so I was thinking how much I'd really like to make a gravity bong.

    I know the whole process of filling the sink with water, cutting a milk/water jug around or whatever it is you want to use. My question is though, what can I use to place my weed in besides some metal piece? What if I don't have one handy, is there another easy solution? Something else household?
  2. A bong bowl. A socket wrench. If you're daring, aluminium foil.
  3. You need a bowl? I use a socket wrench for the bowl...
  4. Yes use a metal socket, they are perfect size and are not harmful.
  5. yeah you can use foil, i used to smoke geebs with foil caps a few years ago and it never did anything bad to me, that i know of...
  6. Yeah use a small metal socket. Its much better to use a bucket or pitcher instead of a sink because sinks are too shallow unless you plan on filling an entire laundry sink. Dont cut the whole bottom off or it wont pull very good and sucks when you pull it to high. Burn holes or cut the tips off of the "feet" on the bottom of like a 2 liter.
  7. You can make a bowl out of aluminum as long as you're just using a regular old bic lighter. I suppose there could be some unknown risk, but you'd almost certainly be fine...
  8. The best thing you can do is the following:

    Soldering iron (cheap, and they're perfect for making homemade pipes)
    Water/tea pitcher
    2 Liter plastic bottle
    Cap for bottle
    Socket (pick one that has a one-hit sized bowl)

    1) Heat up the soldering iron and use it to melt a hole in the cap. You want to melt a hole that is just slightly smaller than the socket, so you have to force it in. When the hole's made, push in the socket.

    2) take the soldering iron and melt a quarter sized hole in the bottom of the "feet" of the bottle.

    3) Fill the pitcher with water, but leave about an inch or two of space between the water line and the top of the pitcher (to prevent spills).

    4) Place the 2 liter into the pitcher. Fill the socket with your herb of choice, and screw onto the top of the bottle, but not too tight. You want it to be just screwed on all the way, but just barely.

    5) Light your bic and hold it over the bowl while slowly lifting the bottle. Lift it VERY slowly at first to get the bowl cherried, and then release you lighter while lifting it the rest of the way. Make sure you don't lift it all the way out of the water as this will release that sweet, sweet smoke.

    6) Carefully unscrew the cap and place your mouth over the top. Push down on the bottle and make sure to suck as you go (but be careful to not suck in any water :p).

    :hello:CONGRATULTIONS!!! :hello:YOU'RE HIGH!!:hello:
  9. this was the method I used. If I get alziemeres when im old i'll let you know.

    you can cut the top off a bottle cap. put aluminum foil on the inside to form a bowl. then get a rubber band and tie it to the cap around the foil.

    you can twist off the bowl instead of pulling it off. less mess with a little work.
  10. if theres a hole at the bottom doesnt it act as a perc?
  11. this was a problem i had for a while too. i wasnt able to find any socket wrench heads and i always screwed up the aluminum foil, so i was pretty much boned. but recently, i found out that theres a little thing on almost every ceiling fan just above the chains for the light/fan that you can unscrew without really affecting the performance and it makes a perfect bowl. *this was my first post, sorry if it was longwinded
  12. Great, all very useful information. I remade it after you told me to just cut off the feet of a two liter or something HighTide. My sink is deep, so that's not the problem. Fortunately I found an old metal from a shitty pipe I made out of acehardware parts.

    Anyway, I don't have a soldering iron, and I don't have any cash or know where to get one around here. Anyway, Is there an easier way to burn a hole through the plastic cap lid? I tried heating the metal bowl piece and trying to push it through, but it didn't seem to work. I assume burning the flame to the bottom would compromise the entire lid, because it would melt more than the desired area.

    Any ideas?
  13. Putting the flame to it for awhile doesn't melt the cap, it just makes the top of it very easy to cut through. You can use anything sharp...

  14. You can use a lighter to soften it up and push the socket through but the best technique is to spin a knife in the center to slowy make a hole bigger and bigger so you can check that its the right size. Force the socket into the cap and your good to go.
  15. Also if its a big socket you can melt it with a lit cigarette but i prefer the sockets that are tapered with a small bottom and large bowl area.
  16. Well the knife spinning idea didn't work so I'll try a nail or something and then melt it in a bit..As for now, I really hurt my damn thumb.
  17. Yeah make sure your careful and dont use a flimsy kitchen knife or a pocket knife that can close without a safety.
  18. I used an expensive cutting knife, which unfortunately was too sharp I guess, because as I started spining it just cut straight through that flimsy plastic and made about an inch long gash in the top.

    I'll update tomorrow.

    Well, if the soldering iron is out of the question, the next best thing would be a lit cigarette. Light it and touch it to the cap lightly until the cap starts to melt. When it does. take a knife and poke a small hole in the top. Alternate between heating the cap with the cigarette (to make it soft and easy to cut) and cutting the hole. Make sure you check after each cut to make cure it's gonna be the right size. Once it's roughly the size you want, use the ciggy to melt the edges of the hole bit, and stick in the socket.
  20. just last week i made a grav that was had a tube running down it that the smoke went through so the smoke was was nice....but i made the bowl out of alluminium fould (yes i know bad)and soot got throught hte alluminium foil the cap was 3 regular soda caps.......also if you put ice in a grav it makes it so much better....
