How to Make a Homemade Pipe Screen

How to Use Copper Tubing for Air Lines

You want to enjoy a good puff of your favorite cherry blend tobacco. However, when you pick up your pipe, you notice the screen is gone. Don’t panic. This article will teach you how to replace your screen quickly and easily to enjoy your well-deserved puff of pipe tobacco.

Locate a pair of ear-buds. Remove the casing around the part that goes in your ear to reveal a nice screen about the size of a nickel.

Remove the screen from the ear buds and cut them to fit the bowl of your pipe. If you can, unscrew the rim off of the top of your pipe to replace the screen with the screen that you removed from the ear-buds. If not, place the screen securely into the bowl of the pipe. Use your fingers to shape the screen.

Press ashes into your newly screened bowl to provide bulk to the screen, thereby preventing any loose tobacco from traveling through the pipe and into your mouth.

Things You’ll Need
  • A pair of ear-bud headphones
  • Scissors
Warnings

Under no circumstances should you use glue to secure the screen of your pipe. Smoking is known to cause cancer, as well as birth defects.

    try getting a screen from one of your sink faucets. fair warning, though, it might make the water come out a lot faster than before.

    ^^that’s^^ the safest one i can think of if you can’t go buy one, but you could always make a soda can bowl and use scissors or a knife to slice out the bowl/screen part and use that in your bong. it’s not exactly the healthiest way to smoke, but i’ve done it hundreds of times with no adverse effects that i know of.

    edit: or if you have a wire-strainer like this:

    you can always cut your own custom-sized screens out of it. i’ve done that a few times before and it’s just like a regular screen.

    Well, I wanted to hit up the bong again. And I would make my own, with a labware flask and my pipe. Unfortunatly, I need a screen, and cannot go anywhere to…
