If you want to start taking dabs then you are going to need three things: Dome, adapter, and nail. With different sizes and angles it can be confusing getting your own concentrate set together. You see, depending on the type of piece you are trying to attach your vapor dome to you will need a different kind of adapter.
For example, if you want to set up your concentrate utensils on a piece with an 18mm female joint pointing up at a 90 degree angle like the GlassCity Tree Perc Bubbler, then you are going to need a adapter with an 18mm male joint pointing down at a 90 degree angle like this:
The USA made Oil Set above comes in 18>18 or 14>14, and is perfect for pieces with 90 degree joints. For $96 the set includes a glass dome, adapter, and nail however I would highly suggest upgrading to a adjustable titanium nail which will heat up faster and last longer.
BlackLeaf makes a more affordable hash oil set for only $35 which also includes a glass dome, adapter and nail. I like the looks of the black logo’s on the individual pieces but the downside of this set is that the adapter is 14>18mm so It will only work with a piece that has a 14mm joint unless you use a reducer.
For those of you who have beaker bongs, you will need a adapter with a 45 degree joint like this:
As you can see, the SYN Oil Rig Attachment bends at a 45 degree angle so that it can hold your nail at a 90 degree angle. This set comes with a 18mm glass dome, 18>18 adapter, and a glass nail (I use a titanium nail). For only $39, this set is a steal!
