    I've posted with SS quite a bit when I was active on GC..

    Just the site itself kinda turned to shit once they reformatted the forum..

    Once the new update hit...everybody bailed..

    There was always some arrogant assholes there too... Don't really miss that site too much..

    I will say, I learned quite a bit over there though.
    Pretty sure Rize was banned from GC.. Lol
    Epic trolling...haha

    some of his observations are so awesome

    "I have seen the best result when you use parchment paper inside of a jar lid or similar object to get a complete honeycomb without the sides remaining shatter like. as you would when using a flat surface in the vacuum. You can tell its starting to wax when you see darker swirls inside the shatter."

    he dehydrates the shit out of this weed first too.

    also said that extreme temp changes can change the way your oil looks like.

    I thought the whole spraying onto parchment was a no-no? [​IMG]
    Alkane solvents boiling on silicone will produce siloxane, right? "

    Hey. Thought I would chime in.....oh and this is a quote directed towards someone else, perhaps I was having an off day:)

    "Do a quick Google search on parchment paper. First link is wiki, says 2 types .

    Regular parchment.. Modern parchment paper is made by running sheets of paper pulp through a bath of sulfuric acid [1] (a method similar to how tracing paper is made) This process partially dissolves or gelatinizes the paper. This treatment forms a sulfurized cross-linked material with high density, stability, and heat resistance, and low surface energy – thereby imparting good non-stick or release properties. The treated paper has an appearance similar to that of traditional parchment.......

    then baking parchment... a coated paper, for which a suitable release agent — a coating with a low surface energy and capability to withstand the temperatures involved in the baking or roasting process — is deposited onto the paper's surface; silicone (cured with a suitable catalyst) is frequently used.

    A quick Google search of silicones solubility shows it is highly soluble in hydrocarbon solvents.......regular parchment would be OK

    This seems like a question Google can and did answer"

    I've always preached a cold evap... I do mine at about 65 degrees. Gives good shatter....seems like he's got it down, a bit dark though

    Any form of silicone should be avoided IMO (of course)

    I've sprayed directly into parchment with just butane, no cannabis..upon contact, flakes of silicone are visibly apparent..and I've blasted onto parchment many, many fucking times myself..damn it..lol

    Being stubborn, I thought to buy an oil slick pad, as it's” supposed to be” solvent resistant..

    I'm not clear on who did the experiment, it may be in the above link..

    But the experimenter weighed the slick pad then soaked the pad in a pool of butane, after the soak, he weighed the pad again... The pad weighed significantly more after it's butane bath.

    This concludes it for myself anyway..
    I used to LOVE my parchment ..

    I still use parchment for storage however..just because the glass dishes are plain robbery.
    I use the cheap unbleached brown parchment paper. I feel like this brown stuff is safer, as it's not super shiny and slippery.

    I saw a very small set of a dish, dabber and dome..smaller and thinner than an ashtray... 675$!!!
