My first "functional-that-didnt-get-thrown-into-the-trash" inline oil bubbler..... The design is meant for oil, however I will make a double female 14mm adapter so a regular slide can smoke herb through this as well. Inline refers to the lower tube that sits horizontally. Rather than it bubbling down, it bubbles in-line with the can. The reason for inlines other than a different look, is that they pull a hit with *very* little effort or "chugging" of bubbles. There are 4 openings in the worked inline stem. The tubing is rainbow with black/white jailhouse style and super unobtanium accents....

There's a lot I will change on the next ones, after having done this. So, this one is already used and now just for me.
