Hows this for a glove box?
    #1944935 - 09/23/03 05:24 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)


I was just Google-ing up some shiz and came across this site:

http://www.banthrax.com/STDome.html


Now I don't plan on spending any $465 on a glove box but off the top of my head I can see:

A big clear Sterilite with a plexiglas window siliconed into the bottom....if the bottom isn't clear enough
A fish tank pump rigged for vac or a vac pump I already have
Some foam weather stripping.
Piano hinge or ??
Plexi or formica or other base]
Gloves
Some sort of valve (to control flow) and bubbler system, maybe with h2o2?

Total cost.... under $50?

Put your unopened jars/slides whathaveyou under the lid, start the pump to draw a vac, build it up and then crack the valve to bring in controlled airflow via the bubbler.

Now I've never used or made a glovebox before, the oven has always worked but this looks interesting to me. What do you think Mr.Man?

Sounds pretty nice, although perhaps even overkill. I guess if you are doing agar or something more complicated than grains and PF that would come in handy, or maybe super sterile printing. But for anything normal a box with gloves attached to it and a tight fitting lid is fine. I have _heard_ of people not using a glovebox and just following fairly sterile procedure and having like a 95% no-contam success rate.

Buuuuut, more power to you! Projects like these just add to the fun!

You can build one for WAY cheaper than that.

Well I figure for cheap, why not make one? My cat wants to do some printing so this should help him have better luck. I mean, he walks in his own toilet....how sterile can his paws be even after washing?

P.s. That IS one hot monkey.

Why thank you, I'll let her know :smile:

Hey, if you got the loot, the time, and the patience to put that thing together - go for it, honestly it just sounds like a fun project and it will be useful I'm sure.

get a clear tubberware. Cut two holes, clean you hands or wear gloves. The $5 dollar glovebox. Works like a charm.

get a clear container with a clear lid...saves on the plexiglass shit.
Then get some big gloves, and something to attack them from home depot, and some glue or something. under $15 for sure
