Default Khalil Mamoon-Broken Bell on stem

Hey guys, I just got my KM Double copper in the mail. It is heavy and beautiful!!! The only problem is, the bell at the bottom of the stem has a small crack, and is loose. It slides up and down the stem.

Is there any way to fix this without sending it back A friend suggested JB weld, but I am scared it's toxic or something. I don't want to inhale water with wierd toxins swimming around in it.
What should I do?

JB weld will be fine, let it sit for a day before smoking and you'll be ok.

I would just contact the vendor and get a replacement. Why try to do it yourself and run the risk of it happening again? Besides chances are they'll throw in a little something extra for your troubles.

I ordered from Alvin at www.hookahstore.com they said they will do whatever it takes "to make me smile from ear to ear" and suggested I send it back. But I want to smoke it this weekend for Father's day, and do not want to wait for the 8 day turn around, for shipping.

How about using this? its called "Water Weld" by JB weld

Thats kinda shitty to take a broken product when hes willing to replace it, so you are needlessly keeping a broken hookah, not smart.

Don't risk it send it back. If you try and fix it and it breaks again they might might not be as kind or as helpful! Do it right the first time and you won't have to worry about anything down the road.

Yeah Nick's right. Suck it up and send it back dude. Alvin is a really good guy and you'll get more than your money's worth if it was a fuck up on his end. Maybe you can talk to him and work out some kind of deal for next day air shipping or something. If so I suggest you get on the phone ASAP.

I am going to send it back. But here is a pic so people see what I am talking about.




Here is the full "Double Copper Tri Metal" stem. IT IS HEAVY AND BEAUTIFUL!!


Luckily, I ordered an "EXOTICA" at the same time. This should hold me over until I receive the new stem.
BTW the EXOTICA is my favorite KM so far!!

Also, why is there rust on the stem?? I thought "stainless steel" does not rust like that!

Is it bad to use a hookah if there is some rust in the stem, or in the hose port??
Am I inhaling rust particles everytime I smoke??

the rust on the step shouldnt be an issue. when its made the soldering or welding prob messed with the metal and caused that, no biggie. it should come off when cleaning the pipe

the piece from what i understand only serves the function of making the bubbles louder, it doesnt effect the quality of the smoke in anyway though
