building a home lab
    #3857162 - 03/02/05 02:20 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Anyone play with chemistry for fun? I'd like to set-up a small lab in about a year or so. I need to read up on physical and analytical chemistry to round myself off, but I always thought it would be fun to waste some time experimenting on my own. Any idea how much a small set-up would cost?

small setup like what? it can really vary, like a small distilling setup or a small dna sequencing setup? get my drift. you can probably get a decent amount of glass, stands, clamps, aspirator, hotplate/stirrer, microscope for around a grand and probably mosty used stuff for that price. then you need chems and various other little things to make life easier. you can ghetto a lot of stuff but it's not a good idea. what are you interested in? i work in a bio-chem lab and order stuff for them all the time so i know basic prices of stuff and what you'll need/want for various procedures :stoned:

The only advice I can give is if you want to setup a lab that involves the commercial/industrial production of illegal drugs. You might want to keep a low profile.....Satelite uplink-Multiple Proxy Ping jumper or even a new one all together. Posts like this put up red flags with snoopers. DOnt want to get you paranoid and Im not saying this is what your intentions are but the term "lab" is a narc search. Just be careful man.

I understand, but its really just for fun. In fact, they can check me out all they want. But I understand what you are saying. In reality, I won't have the money to play around for a couple years, I was just curious if anyone else did this.

You can get a BASIC organic set for ~300 dollars shipped.
Hotplate would be extra, and hotplate/stirrer would be still more.
Depnding on wether or not you have to buy new.
Look at spending about a grand total.
And read up on the safety aspect.
A WHOLE FREAKIN LOT.

And you could use a water ASSpirator for a cheap vacuum source.
