    Here’s what all those pipes look like, I guess the first pic doesn’t show any detail.

    I can live stream one on ig for ya. Hm... maybe a w&r photo tutorial thread, that could be fun. The short story is I get as many wraps, as close together as possible(without touching) than rake with 4mm again, as close as possible. This one is all raked the same direction. I’ve been able to control the pattern better that way recently. Although it means I probably need to work on my back and forth takes!

    My 2nd attempt at a two piece sherlock, my 1st attempt was a total fail. I pushed the bowl after i tagged the two sections, bridged & sealed together. Would it be better to push the bowl before I bridge & seal the two sections together? I've seen it done both ways, would love to hear which way you guys prefer & why. Thanks.

    That is how my buddy does it too, he said. I will give it a try that way then next time, guess I was just worried about having a hole already when I go to do the seal & have to puff in some air. Do you need to plug the hole off or if its small enough, then it shouldn't even be an issue? Also, at what stage do you end up popping the carb hole? I tried leaving you Rep, but I must spread the love first, thanks!

    You will be fine having your bowl hole in there, it seems like I end up covering the hole with my reamer but it’s not a must. I usually pop my carb after I pull the bridge off. I feel like I get a more centered bowl if I push it before I connect the sections, but a ton of people do it with great success both ways!

    i think if you push the bowl in the can first it is easier.
    you can spin on axis and heat an even band easier than you can once you are attached and off axis.
    also if you are off axis and heating up for the push, the glass can start to cave in from gravity.
    when you are on axis you are sideways and still rotating so you can get the glass more fluid without distorting the shape.

    its a "fold over" take a blank, fume, line, twist the whole thing up, than heat small sections and fold the tube in on itself. than blow it back out into a blank.
    ive been trying to get it down for a while and had some breakthroughs last night haha

    Looks awesome misfit! I'd say you nailed it honestly.

    On the note of sherlocks, I always push my bowl after. I like having the air preasure of a closed system, thats just me and I'm no pro yet.

    Ahhh I see. I only mentioned it because it looked to be the same tech as the previous spoons.

    Looks nice
