Default How do you - make holes (in foil)?

Another in the line...

How do you make the holes in your foil?

Pattern, density, with what tool?

Do you do it differently for differnt bowls or teh same for everything?

I use an oversized safety-pin to poke the holes.

As to pattern:

- for standard clay bowls, start on outside edge and circle into the center, semi-skattered.
- smiley bowls, 3 rings: outside, tight inside, even spaced middle area.
- phunnels: dependant on shisha using. Tangiers - as many as the foil can hold without ripping. Everything else (Lay, AF, Smiley) 2 rings. 1 along outside edge and 1 tight against mod.

2 Prong Corn Cob Poker, twice the holes per poke

Patterns
-Funnel w/ mod- 2 Concentric Circles with 3-4 holes in between the circles
-Funnel w/o mod- 4-5 Concentric Circles (Using Tangiers)
-Standard Clay- 3 or so circles going into the center

Depending on the shisha,
I use three patented, state-o-the art methods.
1) "Plus sign", with center hole centered, and random holes in each quadrant.
2) Three circles, edge, middle, and center, with 1 hole in the middle.
3) Completely random with concentration in the center-ish are.

The first makes for a lot of holes, but fairly even wherever you put the coals.
The second is very consistent, but burns a bit hotter.I think so.
Third is just fine, and usually cause I'm being lazy lol.

I use a us size 2-4 knitting needle, whatever I'm making socks with that day. I make 2-3 concentric circles and if I'm using anything other than a phunnel I also make a hole in the center.

For an egyptian bowl, I usually just do some random holes, with a toothpick. I am going to try some of these other methods though!

For a phunnel, I do an outter ring and an inner ring just outside the mod.

I am going to try all the methods here, cuz I am still looking for the perfect method!

I have tried the ring of aluminum between two layers of aluminum foil, and I have had sucess with a windscreen, using that method.
