Default How It's Made..

is one of my favorite shows to watch, so I said "why not post the suggestion of how hookahs and/or hookah tobacco are made by some of the big names in the industry." so I did....

Well.... heres a video that demonstrates how the components of Egyptian hookahs like MZ and KM's are made.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=c8xtuS7EAWA&feature=related

Exact same process.... but I have seen a video of MZ parts being made...its the same process but its on a smaller scale with even less sophisticated equipment. They took a large work arbor (looks like a bench grinder) and used what looked like an old socket wrench to work the metal disk on the form. The part I saw being made was the bowl seat...and the disk used was about the size of a CD.

I'm pretty sure that show is filmed in Canada. The way they are with charging taxes on shisha they might charge pay per view for you to see that show! LOL

i like that show as well but the issues i think there is with it is that its a tobacco product so they might not be interested. maybe a modern marvels tobacco part 2 would be willing to do it

I've always been interested in how stuff is made and watching metal spun is fascinating. What I want to see is how Syrian style cast steams are made. I'd also like to see moassel being made from start to finish as i've only seen a little of that sort of thing.

Hajo... from what I can tell... the way Syrians are made perhaps would be from a type of Sand/Spin casting.

Check Youtube for a sample of sand casting..... the reason I believe that spinning is also involved from the fact that a layer of brass is cast where the inner contours follows the contours of the outside..... not cast as a solid "ingot"
