All in one myco chamber
    #2411936 - 03/09/04 08:34 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I am designing an all in one myco chamber, and am wondering how many people might be interested.

The chamber will be about 8 feet long, 2 feet deep, and 6 feet tall. it will include a microscope table, sterilization chamber ( hot plate and preasure cooker-not included), glove box, incubation chamber, and fruiting chamber. The piece will be finnished like a piece of furniture, so it will be attractive.

the cost estimate at this point will be approx $1600.00 usd + s&h.

I have had people tell me "you can use roll around tables, and just set things up on them". this is not the person i am building this for. i am building this for the person who does this a lot, and is tired of the ugly, i just picked everything out of the trash can, look.

If this is something you may be interested in, please send me a PM, or email me at norcal_bois@yahoo.com

ps.

i havent even built the prototype yet.

we hope that they will all grow big and strong some day so we can send them to college. :smile:

You seem set on building fancy furniture for your lab, but you are driving down the wrong path.

I've got my hotplate, flowhood, incubator, etc, on wheels, so that I can move them around to where I need them. They are on small tables w/ only two horizontal surfaces to clean.

I can move my hotplate table in front of my flowhood to cool, and move my incubator next to my flowhood after inoculation. I can wheel my incubator to the bathroom for spawning, instead of carrying each jar or bag in a giant handful. The mobility of each compo nant of a complete lab should not be sacrificed for vanity!

I can bet you are trying to streamline your lab, but you are making it more complicated by gluing everything together.

i don't know... $1600 is not that much money. i think its a good environment. the object of it should be sterility and simplicity. make it adaptable. it has to be able to evolve/adapt for each cultivator's specific needs. also, are you planning on having a rigid structure to hold the hole thing together? you should think about using an aluminum/steel frame with black/white poly walls. it should be collapsible, so that one can drop it quickly if need be. checkout overgrow for some ideas as to building a utilitarian cab. just my 2 cents
