I've boiled a few glass pipes before and it works pretty good but I have a metal pipe that is really old and has been scraped a lot of times so the threads are real messed up and I'm just gonna throw it out soon and get a new one.

I was thinking of taking it all apart and throwing the pieces in boiling water just like boiling a glass pipe. I'd probably scrape it one last time before but I would think there would still be a significant amount left that could only be gotten by boiling. Does anyone have any experience with boiling metal pipes?

It will be fine.

Can you explain to me the whole prosess of boiling glass pipes. Include the level of fire you should put and how much water, as well as how long to boil it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

He wants to boil it to get out the resin so he can smoke it, and then throw away the pipe cause its old...?

Boiling metal pipes works fine.

Yeah, they're fine to boil, only problem is that they can get hot. My dumb ass didn't think about that. Lol

to boil your pipe, just get the water boiling, then toss in the pipe.

temperature doesnt matter, just dont make it hot enough to melt your pipe(not possible on average stove)

then keep it in there till its clean.
