Other ways to make a PF tek Shotgun FC?
    #11351791 - 10/30/09 02:57 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hey everyone,

I haven't grown in a few months but I've been wanting to get back into it recently and was wondering if there is a way to construct a Shotgun FC with a wooden frame and a medium to thick plastic layer on each of the sides? (There would be a hinged lid)  I'm not intending to have the wood exposed to the chamber, just as more of a support for it so that the box can stand on its own.  I'll draw up some plans later and scan them in, but in the mean time, what do you guys think?

:happyheart:

Big plastic tub would be a lot easier and cheaper.

Hmm alright.  I'll have to get a new bin and drill then.  Thanks.

i dont know how well perlite will sit on a plastic sheet (im assuming that is how you will make the box...nailing sheets with holes in them to the wood)

That would be what I had in mind, but a thicker plastic, not one that would bow.  I'll figure it out and start our remaining B+ syringes soon enough.

Do you drill holes in the bottom layer where the perlite is or just above it? I confused on the the moisture leaking out...

Please please please watch Roger Rabbit's videos: http://mushroomvideos.com/
First two especially, but go through them all.
Then come back to the first two, watch until you know them by heart.
