    I know this has probably been said numerous times before but i' just wanna go over it again.

    I've been smoking for about a year, in fact almost exactly a year. I always use tinfoil but I've heard bad things about it. Whats are the bad effects of smoking from tinfoil and waht could I use as an alternative?

    Do you mean you use a bowl as tinfoil? I dont think is good if your burning the tinfoil.

    To have an awsome bowl, and ive asked this question many times before i found one, juts get a socket head wrench. Pop a screen down in it and theres your bowl.

    You can attache different sizes to different thing. I use one for my gravity bong. One for this pipe i made. And one fore my bong. If you find some plastic or metal tubing around the house or hardware store you'll be set.

    I hope this helped, if you didnt understand just tell me and ill try to explain it better.

    Damn dude. Bowls are so easy to make that it's dumb to smoke off tinfoil or cans. Unless you live in an insanely tiny town then there just isnt an excuse. Here's three easy ways I've made bowls:

    1.Using a Ratchet head and a screen that I stole off the bottom of a small pipe @ work.
    2.Using a brass pipe size changer thing and a screen, bought for a total of $2.79 at hardware store.
    3.Ripped the top off an old coaxial cable ((The cable you plug into the back of your tv for cable)) and just superglued a part of it so it didnt have any moving parts.

    I'm sure there are a million other ways to make bowls man. Be creative and don't make em outta shit that's gonna kill your braincells. Or just roll a joint.

    What the fuck? I dont get u people. I either use very different bongs than you, or i am getting confused (happens often) Why cant you simply buy some pipe/bong screens from a ganja shop? Sure tinfoil is free, but screens dont give you cancer.

    drizzle drazzle.

    Man, I gotta side with Kid Dynamite here. Even ratchet heads and brass fittings are types of metal (usually combination metals) and when heated release several VERY dangerous things. I have a bong I made with a ratchet, so I'm really nobody to talk, but it's definitely safer to smoke out of glass.. Just borrow a dollar here, 2 there until you can buy a nice pure glass bong. That's where it's at son.

    I'm gonna go smoke out of my sobe bottle with fish hosing, duct tape and a ratchet head. Woop dee doo.

    "phlurp". That's exactly what I said.

    To be entirely honest, I'm pretty sure smoking ANYTHING is bad for you somehow. I say if you can't afford a nice piece, then get some papers and learn to roll, bro. Keep your lungs clean for the green.

    Here's a little info that may help, glass is best, but we can't all afford it(it's all I smoke out of) if you must use metal, steer clear of the following, foil-not only does it burn away and end up in your lungs, but there are chemicals coating it(hold a lighter to a piece for a couple seconds and look at the smoke that comes off)
    NEVER SMOKE OUT OF GALVANIZED STEEL!!!! I can't stress this enough, when galvanized steel is heated, it releases cianide gas, bad juju there.
    Copper is also bad
    Brass and steel are your best bets as far as metal goes.

    the rules

    This is what I've been using (when I can't use my pure glass bong, because of "security" risks)..

    Sobe bottle with fish tubing, a pen for the tube under the bowl, and a ratchet head/ pipe screen combo. It works great, and when you blow the smoke through a doob tube, ain't nothing but laundry smell.
