Worked alright as an ash catcher for just a few months of very minimal use, now it's downstem and glass ash catcher parts are permanantly stuck together. I keep all of my glass VERY clean so there is no reason the glass parts should be stuck. I tried ALL of the "tricks" there are to seperate glass that gets stuck including:
91% Isopropyl alcohol soaks, scalding hot water, ice cold water, brute force, butane torching the problem area, vibration/tapping, even my "last resort" of using rubber ended pliers and brute force to pull out the downstem did not work. I also used the method Grav labs suggested via youtube video, and the pieces are still stuck together for good.
I won't spend my money on Grav labs products again unless they make this right by replacing this piece I paid $50 dollars for. The 14mm Grav ash catcher I bought is going to be thrown away soon, becuase I tried everything to pull the glass on glass apart to clean/use it properly.
