Default The "Healthy Hookah Hose" by...

Alfakheronline.com

They are like $3.... and I see a very small pic of one... it looks like the end pieces might be substantial, but I cant tell. Anyone have one of these or have a better up close pic showing the hose' detal?

I have not tried but the price is so low that I can't imagine it not being worth.
Where do you get the dollar symbol thing? Can download the font someplace?

look up font:

Western (ISO-8859-1)

Unicode (utf-8) might work too.

You can find it under VIEW in your tool bar and then "encoding"... you may have to download it .... as I had to to get the one for Cyrillics long ago.

I am going to order at least one of those hoses, I love my $8 one that is all plastic ... and I like my traditional hoses too. But it is nice to use one of those cheap hoses for weird flavors, rather than to taint your $20 KM Hose...

Considering the cheap price, even if it only lasts as long as a standard washable, it would be worth it.

Plus, as Lake stated, the tips do look decent - even if the hose itself turns out to be a dud, the tips may be worth the price for a mod hose. For $3 bucks, as long as you don't just order it, it's worth the try (which means I'll problay be ordering one in the near furture).

What I would like to see is someone selling hose tips. That way when you make a hose you don't need to recycle tips that have seen better days. What the market really needs are hoses with vulcanite mouth pieces just like what the better Western pipes use.

I've thought about buying a porcline mouthtip - but the one I've seen would be too narrow without something else in the ends for the mod hose idea.... hum, maybe I need to shop around a bit more

ahhhh... now we are talkin.

I was ( still should be) a pipe carver... I have a bunch of stem blanks still laying around...

I did make a a few for mine back when.... I one with churchwarden stem and then a shorter on..

It would be nice to mass produce them... but the problem is that tenon size varies from hose to hose.... its even difficult to make a "military style tenon" that works across the board.

Maybe I should switch gears and put the lathe to use making hose tips and connections that are sleeved with brass tubing on the inside of the wood for cleaning... and then have a connection on both pieces that will accept a common plastic line. People could then use a textile hose cover to hide the cheap plastic tubing... a 100% washable hose.

BTW... since the whole vulcanite thing raised its head.... Im gonna throw up a few pics of some of the past pipes Ive made... hope this isnt too much of a re-run for some of you...











I have got to get my shit together and get back into that..... now I know what Im doing this weekend.... Im taking a piece of deer antler and a stem blank and make a kick ass rustic hose.

Sorry if Ive gone astray too much here... carry on.

Wow Lake, those where sweet! Let me know how your stuff this weekend goes. I'm gonna shop around the net and see if I can find some nice "tips" and maybe order a few. (Wish I had some power tools to make things like that)...

Let me know if it all works out and you want a cover....

Lake those are some nice pipes! Been thinking about breaking mine out lately, since a friend of mine has started smoking a pipe that he bought. I can't remember which one I have, but I use to really enjoy smoking it now and then Would you ever sell one of the pipes you make?

Sorry to go off topic...
...also wondering what are some of the better pipe tobacco brands/flavors? Just PM me, I don't want to hijack the thread...
