very nice man !!!!   to test it, make the easy agar dishes,   run your flow hood for 1 hr,  open the agar dishes and let set in front of your flow for 5-10 min in different places 

 

good luck

Ok. I'm spawning dubs in it now. When done I'll wipe it out and leave agar dishes around for 10 mins. Thanks MT.

Yes that's how it's going. I have it on low. I used a lit cigarette and went all around it. The air flow is fully laminar. I can move the cigarette a couple feet back from the opening in the shroud and it blows straight back. I'm doing the agar test now. Then I'm going to pass out. I'm really beat. Falling asleep standing up.

Yes it feels real good. I'm kinda numb over it. It didn't come together exactly as planned. I had a friend come over and the shroud part was his idea.

What's surprising, is no one noticed the car in the background of some of the pics. I noticed it while posting and thought, "someone is gonna say something". No one did lol.

skylines are pretty sick. even the old rbd26t(t) motor will get it.

 

is the eclipse a gsx or a gst? the gsx is heavy as fuckkkk thats why i sold it. not a lot you can do with a second gen gsx in terms of weight.

 

also you can still import the motors or find them on ebay etc. the only real differences in terms of performance with the left hand drive models are the emissions shit. japan doesnt have the same laws so out the box they have straight pipes, etc.

I rock v8's (or similar) only now days. I would make an exception for a clean rbd34tt skyline though. :P

 

I always did want to swap the mitsu motor out of that eclipse and put an sr20det nissan motor in it though. that would have been sick

This convo got away from me lol. It's the GSX eclipse. They are my brothers cars. I'm not really into the japanese stuff so much, don't know all the technical stuff about them. I'll get more pics after it stops raining. The skyline is king, after that I love the VR-4 galant. It's a sleeper. It looks like a plain Jane little car. The only thing different is the front bumper sticks out a little father. My bro has been working on it for over a year. He put a huge turbo in it and worked the engine. He took off the trunk with the badges on it and put a regular trunk. Aluminum badges, one is VR-4, the other is "125 of 1500". When it's done it'll be crazy fast for quarter mile and shit. It'll beat the skyline in a drag race. Not on a street race tho and definitely not on the highway. Ill show you guys a bunch of pics once I get a chance to take em. Me, I like American muscle. I had an 84 z28 with t tops. Here's a list, worked 350 out of a 78 vette, edelbrock everything, 4 wheel disc with the adjuster valve, subframe connectors, 3.73 posi, automatic with race kit, slap shift, that's what I can remember right now. There was more. It spun 2nd gear most of the time when I wasn't trying. that car was manly. Take a chick out with me for like an hour ride. They would have a crush on me after that lol. Man I miss my camaro:(.

      Do not birth them now. IF you wanna follow tomatoes advice, draw a line with a marker along the border of your mycellium, to be sure they haven't stalled, and check them in a few days.If they are still moving forward , which they likely are, let them finish. Your cakes will not fruit until the mycellium has consumed and run through the substrate. Just be patient and let them finish. If you birth them now, you'll be sorry, trust me.

      Aww a was expecting a badass named cube lol   If your impatient you can birth them now, might have trouble getting them out because they haven't ran out of room and started to shrink away from the glass.   Make sure you atleast case the side that's facing down currently

      Welcome bro, great info and interesting conversation is abundant here.

      Caution: I noticed my post and it was suppose to read NOT idea to use alone as a filter and that it should have a layer of micropore tape on it.

      My point was don't use silicone just tape in on and kill 2 birds (efficiency and adhesion) with one stone. I looked at a piece under a scope on a calibration slide and figured a not exact, but estimate there are gaps exceeding 1 micron.

      The minimum acceptable efficiency for spawn production is .5 micron. Every piece and every sheet is woven differently and all sections or sheets will have various efficiency ratings.

      I only looks at 1 piece and I suppose I should have done many to come up with a mean but it really wouldn't matter because the gaps can exceed 1 micron and that would be enough info I need to start layering tape. 1 piece is fine for grain jars.

      I switched to SYD because I did get sick of seeing tape residue on my lids and they do get very wet in the PC. Because using tape, it can only go through 2 or 3 PC cycles before needing to change the tape but eazyfelt (that's not a typo that's the trademark name) is so cheap, around here I pay 1.07 after tax for a 12"x14" sheet or close to that anyway so I don't even try to save the felt I toss the entire filter.

      SFD's are better IMHO but eazyfelt is made of the same material. They both are matted woven polyester fibers but SFD are more tightly woven increasing it's efficiency . Side by side the thickness pretty much the same, at least the ones I purchased.

      Another good point to make is silicone is a pain in the ass to work with IMO and does fail on occasion. Loctite makes a glue called KO2, I think is the name and even though it specifies a working temperature far less then sterilization temps, the shit works great with a 5 minute set up time. Requires 24 hours to cure but the shit is like concrete. It's a much cleaner look and easier to work with. If you would like to see a picture of my lid I will post one.

      Sorry to get long winded again but I was at the bus stop waiting on the slow ass bus driver who is always 15 minutes late, perhaps she will become more efficiency and get there in time if I layer some micropore tape her -

      Been lurking here for a bit and frankly like this forum. Seems to be my kind of folks here. So time for introduction. Really excited to be starting down a new road of exploration! Single, soon to be 72 years young, building a yurt to become my primary residence. Guess I am a bit of a Ludditte -- just starting to get used to cell phones (LOL). Gathering knowledge and forming plans to cultivation. While I know no question is dumb, I will try to keep them intelligent.
