Default Would a KM base fit on a MZ hookah?

I have a large MZ hookah and want to replace the base with a large KM base that I found, would it fit properly?

Best way to be sure is to measure your old base and get measurements from the vendor on the one in question.

Its hard to say but most of the time it could be fixed with grommets anyway.

I have three KM bases, two are the same size and one is about 7 mm smaller opening so it varies... a lot...7 mm is a LOT of leeway when it comes to a base.

If the KM stem was too long then the MZ should fit the KM base you would just have to add more water.

its not that the actual down stem is longer, its the part of the stem where the grommet goes, KMs are a little wider

i tried puttin a 26''? km precision stem on a 32'' mz horas base.. no bueno

Oh I see what you are saying. That being the case I would stand by what I said but you may need some electrical tape or a different grommet. You can always make a smaller stem work on a larger base somehow but making a stem that is too large fit in a base that is too small is a different story.

km and mz vases are made by the same glass maker if im correct. both are 30 gasket size (assuming they are both large vases). sometimes they aren't perfect and you need a tighter/looser grommet. should be ok though

You should be alright, nothing some new grommet/electric tape can't fix. Let us know how it goes.

Hey guys, I just got the new base today. It is a large blue KM, with a pharaoh design on it, very beautiful.

There is just one problem. It seems where the grommet is connected to my MZ stem, is a little too thick (just by a little) to fit inside the new KM base. I have heard about sanding the rubber grommet down. Is that what I should do? Would one of those sanding papers sheets work?

Not the ones under 25", like the Safari, it's like a 22.

The large ones are interchangeable.
