    Screw the hot water and tryin to keep the temp right n all that. I have a hydrofarm seedling heat mat. I keep my dish on there, and I point a small forced air heater on it at a setting where the air coming out is room temp. Works better than anything ive seen yet.

    yeah that would work good.

    heres one for you guys regarding cooking off ISO.

    when I was younger, and first being taught how to make oil... we had quite the technique to cooking it off. (wasnt my idea).. we would just drip a few drops on a plate, or big broken piece of glass mirror... and light it on fire!!!! a few small drops is just a quick 2 second flame. we got good at it and comfortable with it, then we started doing 4 drops... then 8 drops.. then a puddle.. then a big puddle.

    we had it coming from a 2L bottle with the bottom cut off, then turn it upside down and secure several coffee filters at the spout so its like a funnel full of weed + iso mix that dripped out very slowly (too slow)

    then we got impatient and cocky and it was dripping so slow that we would put our face to the bottle, make an air tight seal, and blow.. so the iso came out the filter faster. a lot faster.

    we eventually cleaned the filter a little bit and then blew real hard... and while there was still a bit of flame on the glass (to save time ya know... get to get high faster!! young and dumb, I know) well my buddy got a solid stream to come out of the funnel/bottle contraption we had going... instead of just slow droplets all the time, well the flame traveled up the stream, caught the soaked iso coffee filters on fire, then the bottle on fire... all within .2 seconds. I seen it happen it super slow motion... it was kinda cool. . anyways, that happened while the bottle was up to my buddies face and he was blowing a stream of iso out of it lol, he didnt get burnt but it scared the fuckin shit outta me and him, real bad. so his instant reaction was he threw this flaming bottle of 99% iso because he panicked, into the corner of the room like behind the furnace (we were making it in a weird part of the house lol.. storage room kinda area my the back door with ventilation) and we panicked hard for 2 or 3 seconds (seemed like an hour). thousands of things went through my mind during those 3 second of panic. I pictured we were going to burn the house down. I pictured fire trucks there and me burning down my buddies apartment and his neighbours. I was fuckin scared!!!!!! my heart pounding.. ive never dealt with a flash fire/explosion sorta thing like that before... plus the adrenaline was already going cooking off oil in the basement real quick while buddies mom was upstairs... intense!!

    some flaming iso landed on a couch in 2 or 3 places.. so the couch was on fire, burnt 2 big holes in the cheap dirty old crack house couch, there was some on the carpet.. the carpet was on fire.. and worst of all the whole bottle/funnel of iso was in the corner of the room still burning. the flames were fucking HUGE when they first started.. and they were everywhere!!!!! thank god they died down fast. the first few miliseconds when there was giant flames everywhere I will NEVER forget. I grabbed a pillow and started smashing it where the fire was.. hoping to hit the fire and smother it. we were eventually able to put the 4 or 5 small fires we had going, ruined the couch, a part of the carpet, and my friends pillow (he was mad over that, I told him to fuck off lol) and lost a significant amount of very shitty, over rinsed iso oil. at the end though, no serious damage was done and I learnt one hell of a fuckin lesson... we were shaking after that we were so fuckin scared lol. intense moments thats for sure!!!!

    A fan is a fast way to get rid of solvent, as long as you aren't in a dusty environment. Some heat is required at the end, to keep the puddle molten enough for the alcohol molecules to escape.

    I evap my Iso Oil over a double boiler on an electric range, then put the dish in the oven at 220 for 10 minutes to evap any water out of it, and decarb it as it happens. Eventually I want to build a vac chamber and see if I can turn my oil into shatter so it will be easier to handle and store.

    Fadedawg Well-Known Member

    Yeah, you can purge without one, but a vacuum chamber greatly simplifies and speeds it up.

    I was looking at one yesterday that was pretty reasonably priced, then I would just need a pump.
