    man just pack some weed (or tobacco if that's what u want it for hahaha) into anything, poke a hole in it and smoke it. you could turn anything into a bong. But here's what you do, get a couple ounces and pack the pistons of your vehicle with as much weed as you can. Than your gonna need a friend to start the car up and rev the engin for you. u than go and put your mouth around the tailpipe and as your friend gets the car reving you take a big hit off the tail pipe. it's great its like a shotgun. you can also hook it up so the exhaust (and weed smoke) goes right into your car and you sit in it and get bizzernt. good luck.

    Subject: Gravity.Bong.FAQ

    Here is an article I hope readers feel is helpful, in response to all

    the discussion about gravity bongs, how they work, and how to make them...

    ********************* BEGIN ARTICLE ********************


    I am a senior mechanical engineering student. My specialty is

    design and prototyping. I have worked for several companies

    learning how to prototype, and this comes in really handy for some

    of my "other" projects. Here is a pretty simple one...

    I was introduced to the gravity bong by a friend. He told me

    the full name as described to him was the "Afghanistan Gravity

    Bong". We were sitting around one night and decided to try one


    While I could go into detail concerning the mechanics of the

    bong's operation, I don't think that is really necessary. The

    reason it is called a "gravity bong" and not something else is

    this is what someone called it, that is how they described it to

    their friends, and now it is an accepted term for the following

    setup. I have observed some people on the net arguing about

    gravity vs. pressure vs. whatever. If you have comments like this

    as a result of this description, I refer you to:

    alt.engineering.geeks. The type of argument I have observed would

    have been halted a long time ago by declaring a "TECH TIME OUT !!"

    at our school. Take a hit man. I feel better now having said all

    that, so... on with the important stuff...


    STEP 1:

    Place the bottomless bottle into a water source such as a

    bucket of water, sink, bathtub, larger bottle, fishtank (just

    kidding), etc...When the bottle rests on the bottom, the mouth

    piece should be above the water level enough to grip the bottle.

    I'm not sure if warm or cold water is best, or even if it makes

    much difference seeing as the smoke is not bubbled through it.

    STEP 2:

    Pack the bowl and place it on the mouth of the bottle.

    STEP 3:

    SLOWLY!! draw the bottle out of the water, while lighting the

    bowl. The herb should really burn and the smoke will look

    intimidating. Stop when: a)the herb is all ash (preferable), or

    b)when the bottom of the bottle is still an inch or so below the

    water level in the bucket. Begin preparing yourself for a huge


    STEP 4:

    CAREFULLY remove the bowl without letting the bottle move

    downward (up a little is o.k., but don't lwt the bottom come out

    of the water), exhale deeply, and place your mouth over the

    opening. Inhale quickly and completely, allowing your head to

    move downward. Try not to drink any bong water as this kind of

    sucks! (although its like learning to swim, it's bound to happen a


    STEP 5:

    Don't cough and hang on tight!

    Step 3 Step 4



    First, a 2-liter bottle and a suitable bucket were obtained

    from the apartment. I cut the bottom off the 2-liter bottle and

    set it aside. I was able to find a couple of screw on caps, one

    of which was of the metal variety. I cut a rough hole in each,

    and glued them together, with the cup sides facing out. Into the

    side with the metal cap, a piece of screen was placed and fit real

    nice. We were forced to build this little thing because we didn't

    have a bowl handy.

    This worked o.k., but quite a bit of air flowed in for the

    quantity of herb which was consumed. Also, it was a pain to

    unscrew the cap after lifting the bottle. Overall, we all ended

    up having a great time and the first trial was still a success. I

    leave this historical description in here because: a)this may be a

    good enough system for you, or b)you are also in a pinch for

    something right away as we were!


    Having decided the activity was fun enough to warrant further

    development of the gravity bong, and having access to a machine

    shop, I designed a bowl just for this purpose. This incorporates

    a nice sized burn chamber (approximately = to 5 bat hits from a

    small bat), a small screen, and an o-ring seal to prevent air from

    passing anything but the burning herb. It drops out a pretty

    hefty ash after each hit.

    Here is a horizontal sketch of my gravity bowl design:

    FITS ___

    IN ____O| _______

    BOTTLE >> / __________/ _____|

    | |+

    |-----------------------/ + << SCREEN

    HOLE >>>> |----------------------- +

    | __________ |+____

    ____ / _______|

    O-RING >> O|___/ BURN


    You could make the dimensions to whatever you think may work

    best. I put a 1/4 in. hole through the bowl, with a 3/8 dia. burn

    chamber that is .400 in. deep. It fits nicely inside a 35mm film

    canister for storage and TRANSPORTATION to parties (no plans to

    build more, though several friends have already tried begging!).

    This new bowl works very well and burns quite efficienty,

    filling the bottle with dense smoke. The only change I have made

    to the apparatus is to offer the option of a milk jug in place of

    the 2-liter bottle, with a plastic adapter atached to the jug

    which makes the mouth the same size as a 2-liter bottle.

    I built my setup some time ago, but the other day someone on

    the net mentioned using a tuba mouthpiece. Not a bad idea. Also,

    people have said they used aluminum foil with holes poked in it.

    The point is to get a lot of burning done without using an overly

    large volume of air.


    This has not been done yet, but the plan is to design a multi-

    user setup using a larger water bottle (like the Poland Springs).


    To get really wacked, breath back into the bottle, allowing it to

    rise back up to the beginning of step 4, and inhale again. Do not

    however, deprive yourself of too much oxygen. I used this method

    and took a full minute to take the hit, breathing in and out, and

    was immediately wacked, staying that way for several hours from

    one hit!

    Have a "Gravity Party" with many friends - lotso fun!

    Some people like to push the bottle to the bottom, and then

    inhale. While this does act to push the smoke into your lungs

    (kind of like breathing in a balloon), I don't really feel it is

    any faster. If you try this, don't displace so much water that

    the bucket overflows.

    If it is your first time trying the system, do some trial runs

    without packing the bowl and lighting it. This is a must for a

    first time user from the point of view of risk reduction (won't

    chance losing precious smoke).

    Bowl Suggestion
    by RT

    I read the faq on the gravity bong and there was a key element missing.

    The key to a good gravity bong is construction of the bowl mechanism.

    Using a standard glass or metal bowl connected to a long tube forces

    the smoke to be filtered through the water, like a true bong.

    Like so:

    man this thread reminds me of middle school. well i'll let you in on a master bong makers secret :p

    i give you the waterfall...(not a regular gravity bong)

    items needed:
    2 liter bottle (with cap)
    aluminum foil
    plastic tubing (about the length of the bottle) (pet stores have these in the fish section)

    Alright, if you know how to make a gravity bong cap, keep on reading...if you don't, read it somewhere else because i don't feel like explaining it. alright keep the bottle whole, but cut a hole as far down on the side of the bottle as you can. put the tubing partway, so it's sticking out the side (check the diagram at the bottom). seal it with some sort of sealant like gum (we always used surf wax, and covered it with super glue to make it hard) and make sure its airtight. pack up your gravity cap, and then fill the bottle up (dont get the weed wet dummy!) with water, but make sure you cover the end of the tube. screw on the cap, and let the water pour from the tube, into the bucket. your chamber will fill with smoke (for denser smoke, use a thinner tube) and when its done, unscrew the cap and smoke it from the mouthpiece. have fun.

    all i do is not smoke, that way i dont have to worry about a lighter, something to smoke out of, or getting the pot. so im never on the pot, like you guys on the pot. but i still have to worry about money , because alcohol does cost a pretty penny.
