Default When the base fights back...

Was attempting to remove my pipe from the base last night and mind you, my grommet fits pretty snug. As I yanked, I broke the neck of the base off and it chewed up my finger Had a couple tiny tiny pieces of glass in there. Anyways, it was dripping blood... sucks

Pomberry is the beez knees by the way.. Thanks John

Hopefully this won't put you off pomberry after such an accident :P I hope everything is ok. At least you still have all your fingers.

Oh man, you must have made them quite angry. My AF fell over once and knocked me on the head, that hurt quite a bit. But you got it way worse.

The cuts weren't super deep, but bled like a mofo.

The base is jagged and sharp and in the trash.

Good reason to buy a new KM though...

i've assembled and disassembled a ton of km's new for work and my own for pleasure, never had this happen, yeags, you may need to cut back on the wheaties
glad to hear it wasn't worse. one thing i always worry about when they are really tight is the glass breaking against mt body, you know when you have the base in the football position between your arm and chest, i'd hate for that to happen to me or anyone.

You must be eating sheet metal for breakfast, and bolts as a snack to snap a neck off of the base from your hookah haha. Good story to tell people about battle scares.

"What makes you think you're so tough?"

"I eat nails for breakfast."

"Yeah? So? So does every one else here."

"...Without milk."

When i first bought it from John, it was ridiculous tight. I actually sanded the grommet down. I add a bit of olive oil to it and it worked like a charm. I think that day was one too many push and pulls.
