Default Custom Nammor Hose Tips

So my dad has a lathe and I'm going to start making one off hose tips for Nammor style hoses. As soon as I get some made I'll be posting pics. I'll be doing acrylic and wood tips. If anyones interested in getting some I'll probably be selling them for around $10 before shipping. Any suggestions on pricing or styling would be appreciated. I'll probably send out a few free samples once I get some made. The bore will most likely be between 1/4 to 1/2 inch so the draw will be pretty good.

Yeah I'll probably be sending them to mods if they want them and to probably like five other people to try out. I'll probably have the first prototype done around 8 or 9pm US central time

Thanks for all the comments and support the first batch will probably be wood until I can get some money to go get the acrylic pieces. As soon as I get about 10 made I'll be PMing people for shipping addresses.

IMO keeping a 1/2" bore throughout the tip would make the mouth tip too big and not very comfortable to smoke from. I've bored my tips out ~13/32" at the thinnest points which is the most I could do without thinning the acrylic to the point where they're too easy to break. I would suggest shooting for 3/8" as you will end up with a hole slightly larger than that after drilling and smoothing the inside out.

With 3/8" holes in the tips and 1/2" ID hose, the hookah will be the restrictive part of the setup. For wide bored hookahs like KMs, the bowl will likely be the most restrictive part.

You might also want to pay attention to the taper of the tips. My Razan tips and gaskets are of a different taper than the Narbishes. The Narbish tips/gaskets have less of a taper and are bigger.

That's the reason I have it listed as nammor hoses. Until I can get an tip for each hose a nammor is the only one I can use as a template for the tapering. I'll be keeping track of who all is interested and sending out PM's as they're made.

I'd be more than happy to do a video review for one of the samples

Hell, even if I don't get a sample I'll probably buy one from you when they are all ready.

edit:
took another look at he posted link and didnt realize the length was 36" when i get a few extra dollars that would be perfect for clear pieces. thanks for the link Bungle thatll actually save some money

If you are starting in wood I would suggest just staying simple at first.

The ID of the mouth tips from the current nammor hoses is just about perfect for me but I want something a bit tighter actually. I would love to see a tip similar to the hose ends I have on my Nour hose. The tighter draw can help concentrate flavor onto the tongue. So personally I suggest looking into that.

Regarding the outside design I suggest swirls and smooth lines. I am not a big fan of hard lines and sharp edges. Also make sure that the actual mouth tip piece is comfortable when actually drawing from the hose.

Personally I say the same things apply to acrylic as well. Make sure to use a respirator with the acrylic... the wood too. Any particulate in the lungs is unhealthy.

yea bro you should make like diff lines of tips.. like a wide gauge tip.. a narrow gauge for tighter draws and like kalutika said for enhancing the flavor..
