We know that all of our readers may not be able to currently afford some of the expensive dabbing equipment there is out there.
We created this post with you in mind!
There are many tools available online, which are very affordable while still of good quality.
The affordable product that seems to be a favorite among dabbers as Mini Oil Rigs for sale online everywhere.
What is a mini rig, you ask?
Well, exactly what it sounds like!
These little guys are literally half the size of traditional concentrate rigs. Typical mini rig sizes include: 2.5 inches to 8 inches high. Typical joint sizes are 10-14mm.
Mini oil rigs create many new benefits never possible before. Some of which include:
Price – The mini rig is far more affordable than traditional full size dab rigs. The amount of time that glass blowers put into creating them is way less. And there is less material used which cut costs too! If it costs less for makers, it is less expensive for the consumers too.
Portability – Traditional rigs are about twice the size. Are you afraid of carrying that expensive piece of artwork with you everywhere? We don’t blame you! Well this glass is especially for you. Many people say they have no problem transporting their mini rigs without concerns of breaking and since they are so much smaller, pipe cases are much more affordable as well.
Style – Our readers love keeping up with the latest trends in dabbing. The mini rig is a must have for all glass pipe collectors. Their small size is the only thing setting them apart from standard sized rigs. Don’t let their size fool you! The quality that gets put into these mini oil rigs is outstanding – I can personally vouch that the rips you can get with these pieces are proof of that!
A Few Things To Consider With Owning A Mini Oil Rig
We want our readers to be educated before purchasing their mini rig.
The only two things I would suggest when buying a mini rig is;
Some people have said, the size may make heating the nail more difficult (depending on their method). Personally, I find mini rigs way easier to heat up because a smaller dab nail is typically used (10-14mm) – which heats up faster and I normally use a Bernzomatic handheld butane torch that is super lightweight and portable, so I can easily heat up the entire nail.
And two, some people reported that their mini rig was more likely to break than a traditional sized rig. Although the reasons for breaking were not quality-related but due to carelessness because of the small size.
When Buying A Mini Oil Rig…
be sure to select one with a nail that works best for you.
Some dabbers love ‘Do your dab’ glass nails, which are inexpensive and available in most online stores. These nails usually only run a couple dollars apiece and often come with mini rigs when you purchase them.
Other dabbers prefer ceramic or titanium electric nails.
It all comes down to preference. After you’ve experimented around, you’ll soon figure out what works best for you and what materials you prefer.
All have their advantages and flaws so be sure to check out our post on the different types of dab nails and what to expect from each type.
