This is a small pipe, pocket sized for travel. it doesn't look like anything conspicuous, and it works beautifully. i came up with this while working there. I hate that store..... Pick up the Phone Jack and butane blow torch tip you see in the pictures.

Start by unscrewing the top cap from the top of the phono jack.

Step 2: Hollowing

With you leatherman (or some other insignificant pair of pliers), squeeze the brass tube flat right where my fingers are in the picture. this will separate the two halves fairly easily. Discard the chewed up Brass half, we dont need that. you will be left with a spring, a cap and a tube.

Step 3: The spring

Now take the spring out of the inside of the tube. Take a hold of your butane tip and twist it into the small end of the spring. this becomes the guts of the pipe. place this into the tube, wide side first.

Step 4: The screen

If you use pipes often, you probably use screens. you can get these at your favorite smoke shop, home depot in the faucet aerator section or at the dollar store in the form of a strainer or splatter screen. however you get them, you need to form it into the tube with a pencil. make sure it clears the inner threading, or the cap wont go on properly. after that, your pretty much done, pack it and smoke!!!

dude smoking out of metal is soooo bad for you
What is so bad about smoking out of metal?
aluminum is one of the dirtiest metals.
not all types of smoking is harmful to ur health
you get it in your lungs

well with the tin foil. i know that is bad when direct flame is applied. im unsure bout general heat but definitely direct flame is bad.
well if you purchase a metal pipe from a legit pipe store ur all set. but coper can kill you and you should try to stay away from tin and aluminum because they just arent good for u. and never smoke out of a can because u end up smoking the paint.

well thats not gonna kill u but ur better off going to a head shop and paying like 5-8 bucks for a glass bowl and on top of thatyou can smoke resin if ur out of... tabacco

you're right... this thing is made of steel, so you should be okay. Dont smoke out of cans, copper or lead, because this is just stupid. while it is safe to cook with copper and aluminum, smoking it releases certain toxins that will poison you after a while.

well the big danger is metals that have low melting points so steel is sometimes okay breass is just a mixture of copper and zinc so thats still like smoking from copper.

Salvia divinorum, Latin for "Diviner's Sage," is the legal hallucinogen (I mean, incense, what'd I say?), and it is part of the same family as common sage, salvia officinalis, which is used for cooking. Unfortunately, smoking common sage will have no effect other than making you cough profusely.
im not really sure about sage but i know u can get salvia which is an "incence" and u can get it cheep on ebay.

the reason its still leagal is because most people who smoke it do not do so again. most people i know have had very bad trips on salvia. the explanation i've heard for this is that other hallucinogens like LSD or psilocybin cause a release of endorphins (the "happy" chemicals) in your brain, thereby increasing the chance that you will have a pleasant trip. salvia does not cause this endorphin release. that mixed with the intensity of the onset and the drug itself can cause bad trips. of course, some people have very good trips, but ive mostly hear bad things about it. also, it's not *all* gone after 15-20 minutes, there are some after effects which, again, can be unpleasant.

drinking a tea or chewing leaves sublingually is supposed to be a better way of taking it, as it lasts much longer and will supposedly give you some long lasting "feel good" feelings depending on the dose. it can also cause halluciantions, but will not be as harsh as smoking it. this is what the south american shamans did for a long, long time. i havent heard a lot about this method though, if anyone can confirm or deny i would like to hear some feedback.

i've never done either, but i would like to start growing it for the latter

unscrew the spout on your sink... then pop the screens out... there should be 3-5 in there. leave 1 in the spout or the water will spray everywhere when ever u turn on the sink.

well if you smoke pot resin is the ash that lines up in your bowl after a while and its basicaly intence THC
haha who doesnt know what resin is.
thank you if you dont know what resin is then you probably shouldnt be making home made pipes
Tin foil is very bad when the fumes are inhaled. It can cause Alzheimer's.
lol smoking by itself is bad for you....

ive toked using alot of diy things ... this looks sturdy enough to carry around :-P
...."leafy smoking substance"........wink wink.......I did not know you could smoke sage.....
actually, sage is in the same family as salvia divinorum a.k.a salvia, which is a powerful holucinogen and lasts about 20 minutes (if its about 80x) great stuff, and its legal.
MrHyde6 years ago
what about whackin it into a bit of garden hose. wouldnt that take care of the heat problem?
God i hope thats not a crack pipe.
nickdisney (author)  Gmastefluffy7 years ago
lol, no, not crack. Its For tobacco, salvia, sage, incence, or any other leafy smoking substance.
