Arizer Air 1 & 2 Wood Vapor Stem
At 3″L tapered to 14mm they are designed to be used with your favorite water tool. These will fit both the Air 1 & 2. Has 4 slots milled in the stainless-steel bushing to allow for increased air flow & better performance. The stem itself will have a somewhat earthy wooden flavor to it at first. This will certainly dissipate after a few uses when the inside has been coated with vapor.
I have designed and am making all stems now with a completely new wood/bushing connection. Making it easier with less hassle for cleaning & maintaining its longevity. Each stem comes with a few extra screens and now 3 high temperature orings. There is a small groove in the wood shaft that presses into the stainless-steel bushing that holds an oring. The shaft is then pressed into the SS bushing and held in place securely with a compression fit. Having the oring allows the user to simple slide off the bushing to easily remove the screen while leaving the clip in place. You can then take a cotton swab dipped in high proof alcohol and swab out the inside of the stem and bushing. Let it dry, place a new screen under the clip, the oring should still be in good shape. If not, simply take the old one off and slide a new one on. Press the shaft back into the bushing for a solid fit.
Please do remember, these wooden stems should never be washed, soaked, submerged or dipped in any liquid ever! This will cause the wood to swell and may crack, surely it will discolor, and neither is good!
Be advised, as with all my work its natural as Mother Nature intended. There may be voids, worm holes, live edges and raw features. Each piece is unique and no two are the same. The piece you receive most likely will not be exactly the same as what is pictured but will be a beautifully unique handcrafted unit.
