    Sweet! How long does it produce smoke on one filling?

  4. One I made is 2.5" diameter, 12" long wood filled chamber....3/4 filled it lasts up to 1 1/2 hour.... if you use another 12 inch pipe and one extra coupling it can be extended to 24" and so on...now, also depends on small air pump air flow rate...as well as how many holes at the RAB box are open or closed. .
