how to make a pipe
hi a few months ago I decided to try and make an epipe
I didn't really know what I was doing and sort of guessed my way through
I am no expert and if you guys can point out a better way to do it I would be grateful
a few weeks ago I made another and took some photos so here we go

I will start with the stems
the pipe above is a mr brog pipe of ebay
basically I drilled out the stem enough for a protank with the drip tip still on to fit in snug and epoxied them together[Image: pipe23.jpg]

RE: how to make a pipe
the pipe above is the lord of the rings pipe of ebay
its on a mini protank with the removable drip tip
what I did with this was to file down the tennon of the pipe stem so it sat snug in the drip tip hole
epoxied it together then filled it with car body filler
sanded it down then sprayed it up

next I will move on to the pipe bowl

I drilled the bowl out with a 19mm 3d drill bit
it allows you to go deep without drilling the pointy bit coming through the bottom of the bowl

[Image: drill.jpg]

I then fitted a piece of scrap wood in the hole (this is just to stop the drill wobbling about)and drilled down about half way down the bowl with a 22mm drill

[Image: pipe32.jpg]

I then drilled out the thin end of the pipe to fit a 510 connector
I also enlarged the hole through to the bowl to fit 2 wires through

[Image: pipe29.jpg]

[Image: pipe41.jpg]

that's the bowl ready now on to the wiring(not my strong point)

first I pulled 2 wires through the pipe

next I cut down a 15mm copper pipe stop end
solder a cable to it and stick a small magnet to the underneath

[Image: pipe40.jpg]

put some epoxy putty on and stick it to the bottom of the bowl

[Image: pipe46.jpg]

[Image: pipe49.jpg]

for the top connector I used a bit of 22mm copper pipe soldered the wire on and stick it in

please note the copper is slightly higher than the battery

[Image: pipe50.jpg]

the button I used was from epipe mods in America
its magnetic so it sticks to your battery and when you press it makes conection with the 22mm copper

[Image: pipe47.jpg]

[Image: pipe48.jpg]

now on to the 510 connector

first I push the middle pin and rubber grommet out

[Image: p1-1.jpg]

solder one of the wires to the inside

[Image: p12.jpg]

and one to the middle pin(don't forget to put the rubber gromit on the wire first like I did lol)

RE: how to make a pipe
I checked it all works then painted the exposed copper wire
screwed the mini protank and stem on to the connector and epoxied the connector in place

I think I have covered most things
any questions or suggestions please post away

RE: how to make a pipe
Very cool, thanks for sharing how you built this beauty. 

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

RE: how to make a pipe
Thanks 
I must admit I do like the pipes when I go to the pub 
Before joining here I was happy with my kayfun and protank 
I couldn't see the point in drippers and never bought one
Now I think I have caught cloudyitus
