New drying box, opinions!?!? (PICS!!)
    #3473302 - 12/09/04 11:17 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Well here's the drying box I made it's a fanned/desiccant chamber so it should rip those shrooms cracker dry with no heat and VERY minimal loss in potency.. and it was free! haha I had an old PC powersupply and 2 PC fans and a rubbermaid.. not done... gonna put some chicken wire above the dessican to rest the shrooms on... think the fan and desiccant is overboard?? hahah by the way one fan sucks air out, other brings air in so you get an incredible vacume air flow going on...




Don't laugh at my desiccant haha all I could collect.. gonna look for some actual damp rid tommorowo....

I've been told that fresh air circulation + desiccant really isn't needed. Use one or the other. You could have desiccant and a fan that circulates the air inside but is sealed so no fresh air gets in or you could just use the fans. I'm not saying you can't do it the way you have it, it aint gonna hurt anything, but the desiccant isn't going to make it any more effective, least thats what I been told.

I would flip another container on-top of that, otherwise you will waste your desicant drying your entire room.

EG, you want to circulate the air inside the container, when desicant is present... circulate it outside the container, when not using desicant.

A better setup would be like this...

(Using your setup)



The shroom is sitting on a screen, not a solid surface. Like a small cookie rack.

This would dry in no time at all...

For an added bonus, hook it up to a battery, or wall-wart. Then drop it in your fridge... if preservation is your concern.

Thanks, Zero!

For the record, that is only part of my idea... 85% is Cenebite's idea!

By the way, Cenebite, superb mod...

Best word of advice I can give...

Buy twice as mutch as you think you need! Better to have more than less!

You ripped apart two computer power-supplies, and you are complaining about buying another container...

Improvise, throw the whole setup inside your old cpu case! Use lots of duct-tape to cover the holes! LOL... not one of my best ideas...

just a question cene, your avitar shows mushrooms on what looks to be a section of a food dehydrator... why the desiccant chamber?

Yep you got it A plus..throw another container on there and you got your drying container.

You should still think about a way to leave it as it is now but without the desiccant for the first half of the drying process..then throw on the second lid and desiccant for the final dry. It will dry them quickly for the first 12 hours without wasting your desiccant then finish them quickly in the last 12 with desiccant using the mods as shown by jim and explained by others. You'll go through less desiccant that way..though it may take 18-24 hours instead of 12-18 or whatever (just guesses for times since I use dehydrators..no I have not found any issue with heat before anyone asks and there have been hundreds of trials).

Target has huge plastic containers for sale here about $1.80. They are 2' X 1.5' X 1.5'. Personally I think it is a sting operation, they are looking for shroomers with deals like that!

Blunt, your signature is hyptnotic...

I think that I cornered the market on 386 cpu coolers... now they don't sell them anymore! I must have literally purchased all of them! Great because they run forever on those little 6-12v batterys.

Longer... if you attach your frezer element to the CPU!

Sweet mod... I have like 5000+ games, and a mini-itx, now I want to make a mini version of an arcade... Besides, it is cheaper for me to build small!
