Wax tools are specialized instruments that are used in the activity of dabbing. You can count on All In One Smoke Shop to carry all of the supplies you need for your dabbing hobby.
Dab mats or dab pads are placed under a dab rig to protect surfaces from the sticky residue that often drips off of the dab nail. They are also padded to prevent your dab rig from breaking, should it accidentally get knocked over. Mats should be large enough to cover the surface beneath the rig, as well as give you space to set your other tools. At All In One Smoke Shop, our dab mats are made from medical grade silicone and are 8 x 11 inches.
In a dab rig, the nail is used for heating the wax to the point where it melts and produces vapor. Nails come in a few different styles such as domed, domeless, and electronic. They can be made of quartz, ceramic, titanium, or glass. A good nail should heat up quickly and retain its heat for a good period of time.
A banger is a dish that holds the wax on a dab rig. It is usually circular in shape and is commonly made of quartz, ceramic, titanium, or glass. Furthermore, bangers are made to withstand very high temperatures and to retain heat for a long period of time. Thicker walled bangers retain heat longer, but they are also more expensive. Most high-end bangers today are made of quartz.
Carb caps are used with dab rigs and consist of a rounded end attached to a handle. These wax tools help to restrict airflow so that your wax can vaporize more efficiently. They are quite a popular accessory for low-temperature dabbing. Carb caps are made out of the same materials as nails and bangers.
A dabber is a long heatproof tool that is used to place your wax onto the nail of your dab rig. They serve to keep you from getting burnt and to keep the mess to a minimum during dabbing. Dabbers are usually made either from glass or stainless steel.
These are simply hand-held butane torches which are used to heat the nail of a dab rig, thereby melting the wax.
