How to Make a Homemade Vaporizer


If you are concerned about your health but you cannot stop smoking, you may consider using a vaporizer. A Vaporizer is an instrument used for heating herbs or tobacco without igniting the substance. This is considered a “healthy” alternative for smoking since without ignition, tar and carcinogens are eliminated. Vaporizers can actually be made at home using basic materials like bulb and plastic bottles. If you want to make a homemade vaporizer, follow these steps.

Procedure:

Things you will need:

  • Light bulb
  • Plastic (PET) bottle
  • Ballpoint Pen
  • Electrical tape
  • Nail
  • Knife

Instructions:

  • Scrape through the metal bottom of the bulb using a knife. Wear gloves or use a cloth when handling the bulb to protect your hands in case of an explosion. On the bulb, you will see a black ceramic piece placed between two metal parts. Cut the ceramic using the knife so it would break. Plug the knife in the open hole and start twisting to cut off more pieces of ceramic to make the hole bigger. Clean the inside of your empty bulb using hot water.
  • Using a saw or a knife, cut off plastic bottle. You only need the cylindrical portion of the bottle. Cut it straight across about half an inch under the screw top.

  • Attach the neck of the bottle to the hole of the bulb. If the hole is too big, you can tighten it by inserting some cotton. Once it’s tight enough, you can now seal it using an electric tape.
  • Make a hole on the bottle cap using a nail. The hole should just be the size of your pen-not smaller, and definitely not larger.  It is convenient that you use a knife in scraping the sides of the hole.
  • Dismantle a pen and use the slender, straw-like body. Insert this into the hole you made on the cap and make sure that it penetrates into the bulb.
  • Test your new homemade vaporizer. Place herbs into your new homemade vaporizer and heat it using storm-proof butane lighter. Using storm-proof butane lighters could eliminate carbon residue. Carbon can leave black coating to your bulb. But if you do not have one as of the moment, regular lighters are safe to use.

Tips:

  • Make sure you use a bulb that is stronger than 100 watts to prevent explosion
  • Use gloves when making the homemade vaporizer to prevent cuts.
  • Wear eye protection when testing your homemade vaporizer. The bulb may crack when testing and glass particles might get into your eyes.

Warning:

  • Don’t wash the vaporizer immediately after use as this could break the glass.
