i dont know if this really says "km quality has been dropping". in reality this was a normal occurrence before, i remember people talking about their ice chambers not being welded shut back when KMs first made a big splash on the scene.

who uses the ice chamber anyhow? =/

Dam thanks for the tip man, the first time i cleaned it out i shook it up and could not find out where the water was still trapped. Any other suggestions on how to seal the weld (cheap but effective!)?

I wouldnt say its a quality issue... its just handmade... the weld is based on the person welding and how its handled after. I would still buy KM's... im just a Mya fan.. lol

hey bro... look at ure bottom stem... the bottom of it

check if its corroding... cuz mine was... saw it today





so I cleaned it up with some vinegar then got some pipe sealant and glued it

I suggest you do the same cuz I put water in there and tried to get it out with a blow dryer and after like 30 secs and did a quick blow on it and water would still come out... so I suggest sealing that up also
