And there's another video where a guy takes a jar... Never mind. I wish my boss never made me watch that video. :-P

But seriously, there's actually lots of youtube videos where they use cigars and buckets. Less than $20 all in.

haha, honestly you can probably make a really effective one out of a vape thingy. Based on the smoke rolling out of all the VW/Audis around me they would be more than adequate. :lol:

Do you really think so? I thought the water vapor would dissipate too quickly. Not an expert though, just guessing.

Depends on how humid it is. In winter, vape clouds disappear super quickly because of osmosis. In the summer, when it's super humid, the clouds will hang for a stupid long time.

No. I don't vape. But I seem to always be around people who do.

and no, I don't think a vaporizer would really make a good smoke machine. I have a couple fog machines I've thought of trying to make a vac leak tester out of though, lol.
