    I learned this trick and thought I'd share this. I have a thing for the two piece 2puffs S.S. and Aluminum Drip Tips but they can help with spitback and not just look good. Separate the two, use a hole punch with a brass pipe screen, put that piece of screen between the two pieces of your drip tip and there you have it. It works just like the grease screen in your stove.

    Hi Ed,
    From my time with the Vulcan Vector, the screen fills up with condensate and needs to be cleaned/cleared regularly or instead of a few micro drips each pull, you get 3 or 4 full drops straight to the back of the throat.
    YMMV but I popped the screen out and never used it again.

    Cheers
    I

    OT: I had a GF who lived on Chruch Street..long long time ago.

    Yes that can and will occur for those that don't routinely clean their equipment but you hope most will have common sense but I know......lol

    I use those little screens a lot with my herbal vaporizers but never really liked the brass ones to be honest.

    They have a pretty strong taste to them ime, and if I remember correctly (it's been a while since I did the research) they can release toxins when they get too hot, although you probably will never reach those kind of temperatures the way you use them.

    But still a great idea, and know that those little screens are widely available in stainless steel as well [​IMG]

    Hey Agony, it's copper that gives off the toxins when heated. Learned brass was safe enough from the 420 days lol. I agree I use stainless steel as well, brass are just easier to find for some.
