    Well I lost my bowl screen and now if I were to try to but any weed in my bowl it would just fall down into my pipe =/
    Anyone have any homemade screens i could throw together to solve the problem?
    Thanks in advance :)

    theres a little metal screen in your kitchen/bathroom/(usually)laundry room sink taps where the water comes out. a bent safety pin should be able to pull it out.

    i dont use screens. the herb itself acts as a screen. just break it up a little bit bigger, even put a small nug where the hole is, and in time, the resins will collect on the sides and make the fresh herbs stick to the sides. you will notice your hits will be a ton smoother without the metal. even if you are using a metal pipe.

    A small pebble, rinsed and washed clean of course. :)

    Don't bother with your faucet aerator, those are there for a reason.

    yes, a small rock (pebble lol) will suffice. You can also purchase a glass screen. which is a small glass pebble with a few holes in it to place in the hole of your bowl.

    Second that. I don't use screens, 'cept for hash. after awhile there really isn't any need, just use one large chunk'o'weed to plug the hole and then you're fine.
  7. A pebble can work wonders if you wash it off. Maybe if you had a small glass marble that would work too. Faucet screens can be used, but make sure you replace them! They filter out any crap that is in your drinking water!

    i used to get them outta the sinks in public restrooms and school bathrooms. i allways had a steady supply of screens. sometimes when i would pull the screen off there would be chunks of whatever on the screen which IMO is gross as hell if ur drinking from it.

    if you have an old pair of ipod ear phones or other ear phones with a screen like thing by the ear peice. i have used that before.

    also you can go to any hardware store like home depot or lowes or whatever you have around you. you can get little sink filters just ask any employee they will tell you where they are. i dont know the price but a pack of about 5 cant be more than $3.

    The thought of that grosses me out. Imagine all the ear wax that has been on that.

    I have never once used a screen to smoke weed. I had a metal bowl with a big hole and i would just put a nug of weed over it and pack the bowl like normal.

    I do the exact same thing.


    The pebble idea is interesting and affordable, cant you go to the gas station and buy some screens? I used to take a fish tank top and cut out a piece then cook it clean with a lighter, run it quick under a faucet and use that, I alos used to take a piece of bud and lay across the whole and poke through it with a pin so I still got a nice drag, dont
    use tinfoil that's nasty so if you think of it change you're mind.

    I bought a strainer from a local grocery store for less than 5 bucks and it had enough mesh metal to make about 15 or so screens

    you dont need one, hit my buddies bong the other day and if you just break up a big nug it tastes soo much better with bigger bits also ash acts as a screen i don't see the attraction of using finely grinded weed on a metal screen

    Just pick out a good stem and put it through the hole and make sure you have an air flow and you are good to go, plus your not gonna strike anything that could harm you because its all natural, it works up to like 2 bowls and just put another stem in it.
