Default What do you use to poke your holes?

well I use toothpicks like most people. BUT I was wondering what kind of other things you have had to use that might be unusual, like Ive used a probe that I stole from a voltmeter it worked pretty well but then I lost it. Ive used pencils, sewing needles and of course that thing on the tongs but those too are pretty standard. Have you ever made something cool like with a grip or something?

yea, people freak out when I just pull out a syringe and start stabbing the foil. The claws attached to the wall basically tells people to not ask any questions.

usually a safety pin or the very tip of a razor blade. i like to make a ton of tiny holes, it works great and not so much ash gets through if at all

hey all,

add to the list above (excluding the syringe)...

- toothpicks, but the plastic kind, they actually work better
- Foil Pincher/Stomper, they sell it on smoking-hookah.com - worked okay but then the plastic tips get dull and it just rips the foil
- pen cap
- belt buckle, it was a desperate time and we really wanted to smoke
- power cord prongs
- knife

thats about it...oh and broken piece of hub cap we found outside

Regards,
Mike

Haha, you all use some crazy stuff! I usually just use toothpicks or push pin. But I have used a pin from a button before.
