Well, yeah....it might. Such a technique is purported to work, when applied to Formamide or Acetamide. But keep in mind, in those cases, it requires a lot heat, a lot of pressure, and after hydrolysis... and a mixture of primary, and secondary, amines is recovered.

So, is this techniques really better than others?

I don't know. I wouldn't do it. There are easier, and safer ways.

Might be a worthwhile method for producing producing Diethylamine, however.

just cap it off with aluminium foil at the top. problem solved (:
sounds interesting, i have considered using a pipe of pipebomb type with such endcaps a few times aswell and i have located a piece perfect for the purpose.. perhaps calcium acetate into acetone?

Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.

Perhaps I'm off base here, but isn't preparing methylamine with formaldehyde and ammonium chloride the normal procedure?

"In the laboratory, methylamine hydrochloride is readily prepared by treating formaldehyde with ammonium chloride.[3]
NH4Cl + H2CO → [CH2=NH2]Cl + H2O
[CH2=NH2]Cl + H2CO + H2O → [CH3NH3]Cl + HCOOH"

I'm also at a loss as to why you decided to post this in the reagents and apparatus section, this should be moved to somewhere else.
