This is really nice of you to do this for all of us TE. I have a lot of respect for this community. Tell us if you need anything- I just flipped through your album of the shops and it got me really excited!

T.E. first off, thanks for helping do this. i saw the old pics, but i know they have hookahs that weren't pictured. I've seen a few different "rare" ones, similar to yours before. There is also an all brass/copper stem, and the same stem in stainless steel/brass.

would those shops let you take different pics ,or thats pretty much all theyd let you do?

Problem is, I do not have the time to go there again and have photos taken, I have to drive there, park far away from the shop, walk for about 20 minutes each way, so it is kinda hard for me to go there to take photos.

Also btw my trimetal is all copper/brass. The white part is brass anodized with Nickel (that is what they told me)

well if we can't get enough people on board this time around, maybe you wouldn't mind taking pictures next time you are down there to pick something up? Regardless, you can count me in for one.

I would be down to do this as well and if the order falls short of 30 KG's you can put the glass in as well to save money on shipping and buying new glass.

only problem with this is glass doesn't stack well for the volume ... we can stack 10 stems in a box and it won't get as large as if you add 10 vases ... the larger the size it is the more weight they will allow i am trying to keep the box as small and as full as possible .. it's already going to be a decent size with 10 stems and hoses but if that's an option it could be done I am more interested in the rare stems than the glass

I got the quote from Aramex. $500 for a Jumbo box (30 KG) with the below specs:

The box should not by any means exceed 30 KG, not be fragile

The dimensions of the box in centimeter, multiplied by each other (W x L x H) then divided over 6000 should not exceed 30.

In simple mathematics,

W x L x H <= 180000 (W, L, and H in Centimeters)

or

W x L x H <= 11520 (W, L, and H in inches)





I need to get a box and try to see how many stems would fit. That would be the thing to do ....

Maybe it's an option to have a bunch of stems send to Europe as well. I'm interested and Blazingking is interested. If we can find some more people that are interested.

At least if The Egyptian does not mind doing that?

I do not mind ..... Set up a single contact who would be responsible for receiving the stuff and paying me and I am OK.

you would probably want to take the box with you down to the market when you go. and as far as added the glass goes guys, the specs TE listed said that it must not be fragile.

I was thinking of the same thing. KM Group Buy, and then split the shipping among everyone. If we get enough people it would be like 70 dollars per person, and your getting a very nice hookah.

I wanted to do this and I got a quote from UPS and Fed Ex and it was for a 12 pound box. which was 1x1x1 inches. It was 365 dollars to ship.

we could add fragile items, but in that case we have two options. a- send it as-is with no liability on the shipping company if - and when - the fragile items break ..... or b- add a fragile handling surcharge.

I think best bet is to just ship the stems rather than increase the cost. Its not that difficult to get a base compared to getting a KM that no vendors in the US sell.
