Default Epoxy adhesive?

Sup guys,

MY QT recently broke.. which came as a surprise because the part that broke was the neck. You know where the stem attaches and the grommet is set upon, the dang thing popped off when I was taking off the stem from the base. I think it had to be from the change in temps but whatever,.

I wanted to ask if epoxy was safe to try and fix it .. because thats what I did. It worked but I have not smoked from it, is it safe to smoke from? I know heat isnt directly touching the epoxy but will it still release the fumes ?

Try calling Mya and see if they can just send you a replacement for that specific part. I'm sure it would be cheap, considering that it's a QT.

I'd suggest buying a better rig rather then fixing something that is pretty mediocre to begin with. The way I see it is that in a year you'll spend hundreds on shisha and coals so why settle for a QT when you can get a rig for around 50-60?

... Okay... Well I do have a better rig. I use the QT for desktop sessions and solo sessions. If I have friends around I pull out the Mya Vortex. I was just wondering if the adhesive would be safe to apply without any health problems.

Also , I did not want to order one because only a good clean chunk tore off, which was fixable by adhesives. I was just wondering about any chances of the epoxy to affect my sessions/health. And I think myasaray.com charges alot for just a base.. which is also $10-20 on its own I believe. While the epoxy was 2.50

Go to Home Depot or Lowes paint dept and tell them what type of metal you want to bond together and they will set you up with a product that will work just fine.
