Re: Having troubles with my KM (and Vortex)--help me?
For bowl and hose fitting, just wrap a strip of wet paper towel to the thickness necessary to create a good seal. As far as your session duration with the Vortex, I have never gotten 2 hrs out of mine, only about 1.5. You have to remember that you are smoking with another person and that will always burn the flavor up quicker. Oh, and if you were going to use the Vortex with Nakhla, don't worry about it. It's not wet enough to need it. Nakhla smokes just fine in Egyptian bowls.
