Hey, I think that would work BUUUUT you need to be very very very careful and be sure to use a glass/ceramic drill bit to do so other wise you are almost sure to chip it. Good luck, make sure you have some xtra bowls b4 starting this experiment, good idea!

With your setup I would think that airflow wouldnt be a problem. But hey, give it a shot.

MAKE SURE you get the correct drill bit or you'll most likely demolish your bowl. lol I agree with having extras before this experiment. Good Luck!

but if it works......cool

Sounds like a disaster. But so long as you have backups, why not try right.

Although, I personally would be more apt to buy vortex or phunnel myself. Where I am, they are relatively cheap.

Good luck and if you do it, post pics!!

Yea I don't really think this would work. I feel like if you started drilling, you would crack the bowl immediately. I dropped mine on a concrete floor once and it was fine (or so I thought). When I tried putting it on my hookah, the whole bottom broke apart. Bowls are more fragile than you think. Atleast for me lol

I have actually experimented with this on two bowls that I got through trades and stuff on the FS/FT section. I never used them because the bowls were bad (holes not properly drilled in the first place/poor spacing of holes). I just grabbed a small drill bit and went to town on them. I experienced no chipping or cracking, be sure to wear safety glasses. Hope it works for you.

Definitely wear safety glasses
You'll need a ceramic bit and a coolant of some sort
Go in small increments from a pilot hole to a slightly larger hole to your desired size
If you buy a kit go in order of size of the bits
