What if you can't get temps low enough for pinning
    #664545 - 06/05/02 05:35 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I can't get my closet cooled down to the low 70's. It stays around 80. I have closed all the vents except that one and it still doesn't get there and the AC is running constantly. I can't fit them in the fridge either and they need to stay in my closet. When i get some cash I might build a box for pinning and put a salvaged fringe compressor on it.

Shelter me from the powder and the finger,
cover me with the thought that pulled the trigger.

Put casing in fridge for 24 hours, this will cold shock caseing, telling it to pin....also mist with cool water and fan often...and dont use a light bulb, use fluroscent, which gives off less heat.
Hope that helps.
OoD

You really need to get a 10degree drop to initiate pinning. Is your experiment really
" in the closet " so to speak? Maybe you could hide a cooler with ice in it? or even a storage container but you'll have to make some kind of rack to keep them from sitting on the ice especially when it starts to melt. Just an idea.
