STIR PLATE STIR BARS
    #3631894 - 01/15/05 06:27 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

So, foaf was about to do a dozen differing liquid culture tests - each in a seperate jar. Got everything ready, then realized he only had 3 stir bars...... :confused: Not enough for 1 in each jar.

He scratches head & decides what the hell. Try to make a few?

Used small bore rubber tubing, nails with head cut off & RTV high temp silicone. Cut head off nail, insert in tubing & silicone seal ends.


Worked like a charm

I guess that also a heat shrink tubing as used in electronics could be used instead of the small bore rubber tubing.

uhm, ok, lets complicate things even more heh :wink:
would that like evenly distro the growing myc through a honey solution or something
by rotating the jar at an angle or something?
that work any better than growing it in a still sitting solution?

Instead of waiting a a couple weeks for a mushroom mycelium suspension to finish brewing. It takes maybe 4 or five days with a stiring rod.
Oxygenated water
Mycelium breaking down to smaller peaces
unclumped mass growth

are all pluses to using a stir plate.

I haven't found anything that cheap here in Europe.

hey anand this is REAL cool,
guess ill build one of these little gadgets :smile:
thx for the link!

but being hones .. i dont really get it how it gets the top plate to vibrate.

i mean its clear, teh fan rotates allright, but do the 2 magnes cause
it to start vibrating? i know there are magnets inside the fan,
when its rotating these 2 magnets there cause the whole thing to
start vibrating evenly, is this what happenes?
