      I don't quite know what happened on page one so I'll start this thread on page 2 with Ckbrew . It's a positive post.

          Interesting. How does that system work?

        The probe floats in the reservoir all the time. The control only does above or below, not both. I have mine set to activate if the PH rises above 6.2. The control turns on the pericalastic pump and adds drops of PH down until it reaches 6.1then turns pump off. It usually floats down to 5.8 after pump turns off.

        An airstone to oxygenate water.
        12" of stiff irrigation hose pushed through and caulked into the lid of a flat, half gallon juice bottle. Makes for an easy watering to the plant in the back corner of my tent. I do half a gallon, per plant, then go back and give them another. It slows down the watering so less runs out.

          I use a piece of an old garden hose and just spill it when I pour. Never thought of your idea for a funnel but I like it👍🏻

          I made a funnel hose setup for when topping off reservoir or for pouring out the few ounces left in the bucket when doing reservoir changes. There is a funnel every auto parts store in the U.S. I'm sure sells it is made with a long tapered spout that I've found stays connected to a piece of 1/2" I.D. irrigation hose with friction. Only down side to mine is the opening you pour into is a little small so need to watch how fast you pour into it. I do plan to add to this thread in next couple of days with pics of the different things I bought or made to make growing easier or more enjoyable and will add pic of my funnel then.

        A sled made from futon slats and heavy duty casters, with a 30" square piece of plywood on top for my tent to sit on. Most I've put is eight people in the tent to see what the sled can hold. No problem.
        Home Depot moving boxes, with fans, as a flowering chamber for a plant taller than my tent. Never put no people in that.

        Pridefully, previously posted pictures.

          I’ve been using fly fishing line to tie my branches down. A simple knot won’t slip and it’s easy to untie. It cuts into the branch a little like anything does. A branch tied to this nail pulled the line so hard it bent the nail.

            This is my first try with this and it works great.
            i lined the lid with parchment paper and fill the box with frozen bud. Use silkscreen fabric to separate the box from the top. Line the two up, turn over and shake the trichs into the lid. ( if bud falls all over the floor and you lose a pound of pot, your doing it wrong ). Good luck

              You are drying the trim/bud first correct? Freeze by dry ice or regular freezer. Nice.

            #24
            Yes, very dry, and just the freezer. I will prepare the box next time and freeze the whole thing. Great yield, looks like Blonde Lebanese

            Quick easy way to ad a top support bar.
            3/4 inch scrap oak or hardwood dowel and 1/2 inch 1 hole curved conduit strap
            On mine the 2 ft bar is under the 4 ft bar, so the 2 ft lower would get the 1/2 inch strap attached to the top of the bar, the 4 ft or top bar would get the straps attached to the lower side of the wooden bar making it sit higher.
