ok so I broke the stem on my bong (thats the glass piece that you slide the bowl into, for the half a dozen or so none-stoners on this site). Its 9mm diameter, really thin glass. anyway I bought a new one, only to find that it's too long. sticks out of the bong and looks a little funny... it still works but I would prefer one the right size. I need it to be about an inch shorter (probably 3" instead of about 4) but after checking at least 6 head shops, nobody seems to carry a small enough size. they're all 4"

so my question is, can I cut this piece somehow without shattering it all over the place? and if so, how? apparently a diamond-coated blade on a dremel will do it, but I dont want to buy a $100 tool to fix my $90 bong. if anybody knows how to cut this thing without breaking it... please, share your knowledge with me

$1 pack of zig-zags :-D

you need a glass cutter, but pipe stems are dirt cheap, just buy a shorter one.

yea i'm a fan of the zig zags too. but my friends are returning home with salvia on sunday... which is awful hard to smoke without a bong. plus you have to admit, nothing beats a tasty bong hit from a glass bong with ice in the ice catcher

i've tried... no store carries the right size. i've tried at least 6 shops in 3 different cities, no luck

i rolled this idea around in my head as well, and i still have a stem about 3 inches too long on mine. it seems to be a setup for buying a new stem.

my best theory was to use a diamond tip etching tool and just go around and around the stem till its scored deep, then hope you can get a clean break. i never did it, cause i bought a glass on glass slide and really didnt wana break it. but if its a cheapo rubber grommet one, then you'd only be out $5 or so if it broke and had to get another.
