homemade rigs

Has anyone made any of these successfully? I’ve been thinking about it, and was wondering if maybe using certain metal nails along with washers or some shit could potentially allow you to heat the nail and dab. I don’t personally dab (can’t afford wax), but would love to see some homemade rigs if anyone’s got ’em.

My personal favorite method doesnt involve any kind of equipment at all, and makes a one time use rig. Obtain any plastic water bottle, and cut a 1/2 inch hole in the side as shown. Have a lit cigarette ready, with the ash blown off so just the cherry is exposed. Break off a dab (doesnt matter how big, as long as it isnt so big that it will put our the cigarette), and put it on a table/rolling tray. Use the end of the lit cig to pick up the dab, and you will see and smell the dab smoke almose immediatly. put it inside the hole you cut in the water bottle, and wait for the water bottle to fill up with dab smoke, and take out the cig. uncap the water bottle and inhale. Perfect easy one time use dab rig!
Well, I’m aware of this method, but I was curious to see fullblown custom rigs, with percolation and such.

Crack pipes are too dang fragile for my klutzy, high self
I used to dab with a paper clip and a pen tube. Heat up paper clip, place dab, suck through pen. Perfectly bunk.
Honestly, dabbing is kind of “stoner elite”. A home made dab rig I would equate to you putting aluminum foil on the bumper of your 2012 AMG Mercedes to make them look chrome. People who have enough money to buy $60 little ball of wax generally have no problem buying a $500 dab rig, those who can’t break some over a bowl instead .
edit: If you really want a cheap-but-effective rig, get a crack pipe. They’re usually around $5 and they do get the job done.
Hot knives isn’t exactly a “home made dab rig”, but works hella good!

Steamrollers work great.

r/StonerEngineering: You give a few pot heads a bunch of weed and nothing to smoke out of and they suddenly become engineers. It's amazing.
