How to Assemble a Homemade Vaporizer

So, you’ve heard of all of the uses and benefits of a vaporizer, but you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on your own, right? No problem. With a little creativity and some help from the DIY gods, you can build your very own vaporizer at a fraction of the cost. Not only will you save loads of dough, but you’ll also have a cool story to tell when you share it with your friends.

First, you’re going to need a heating element. This is a vital component of the vaporizer, so pay attention! We recommend getting a heat gun with a low setting that sits around 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you have the gun, you’ll need a small piece of sheet metal that is very pliable. Bend the metal until it forms a cylinder that fits nicely around the tip of the heat gun. Then, solder or glue the cylinder ends together. Find high quality glue at the hardware store if you are not familiar with soldering.

Now, take a thin piece of mesh and attach it with glue or solder to the end of the cylinder, so it forms a screen. Make sure the mesh isn’t too porous or your herbs will fall through it, defeating the whole process. Find a plunger to hold the herbs down onto the mesh, keeping them in place. Not sure what to use? We suggest a wine stopper. It can be metal or plastic, but it must be breathable.

Now that you have the completed cylinder and plunger assembled, attach it to the tip of the heating gun. Again, use solder or glue-but not both.

It is now time to focus on the storage device. An oven bag makes a good, affordable option. Combine the oven bag with a thin piece of cardboard or thick paper and make sure to use non-toxic glue. These cheap materials are great for the storage device because it is a disposable part that you will need to make again and again.

Bend the cardboard or thick paper into a cylinder that is slightly larger in diameter than the cylinder attached to the tip of the heat gun. This will be your mouthpiece. Place it over the other cylinder and make sure it fits nicely to reduce leakage.

Congratulations! You now have a homemade vaporizer!
