sterilite containers
    #755693 - 07/18/02 07:43 AM (21 years, 7 months ago)

I bought a couple of big sterilite containers to use for fruiting. I decided to cut a few holes towards the bottom and glue filter patches over them for air exchange. Well here's the problem, I was using a knife to cut the holes and it wasn't working very well. As a matter of fact when I got to the bottom of the hole I was cutting the container cracked where I was cutting. How has everyone else cut holes in these containers, is there a quick easy way that I'm overlooking? Thanks.


I paid good money to see myself fall apart, I'm not about to give up now.

I use a drill to make several smaller holes (close together) and cover all of them with the filter patch.

I use a spiral saw. Cuts everything.

Let's not confuse truth with reality.
