    What are you doing for heatsinks with the Solstix?

    Comment

      The SolStix come with the SolStrip and the matching heatsink (SolSink) that is already drilled and tapped. I'll take a few pictures as I build it.

        I was just on their web site and saw the led strip/heatsink combo. I'm really tempted to pickup 4 of those to use in one of my cabs.

        So far are you happy with the growth your seeing with these?

          I noticed a huge difference between them and the 150-cmh for veg. I was so happy with the three, I ordered these 6 in 27000K. Customer service is pretty good too.

              ReikoX's Cannagar Tutorial (1/2)

              To cure the leaves, I first take them fresh off of the plant and vacuum seal them. Then I put them some place warm like on a seedling mat for a couple of days. After a few days, the moisture will be removed from the leaves and may even pool in the bag. I remove the leaves and let them dry until they are just starting to crisp up at the ends, then vacuum seal them again for a week or so.


              Next I shape the cigar. A cigar mold would probably work better, but the artisan hand rolled cigar is always nice as well.

              First, I shaped the tip of the cigar with some hemp twine. The idea is to get the hemp twine as thick as the cigar will be in the end.


              Next, I weighed out about 7 grams of bud and removed any large stems. I broke the buds down so they were a uniform size, and formed them into shape with a bamboo rolling mat.


              Then, I cut a piece of parchment paper and wrapped it around the buds. This helps keep the buds from falling apart when wrapping them with the hemp twine.


              After that, I wrapped it tightly with the hemp twine. Notice how much more compact it got wrapping it like that.


              Finally, I vacuum sealed it for a couple of weeks. This will help it keep its shape when wrapping the leaves later.

                ReikoX's Cannagar Tutorial (2/2)

                After a week or so of being tightly wrapped, I carefully removed the hemp twine and parchment paper. Now it's time to finish wrapping the buds with the leaves. For this cannagar I'll use about 7 grams of Holy Grail 69 bud, 0.5 grams of mixed kief, about 1 gram of Skunk rosin, and several Duban Poison (male) leaves.


                First I pressed the dry sift between two pieces of parchment with a hand clamp. A full gram would have been better, I'll make due with what I have.


                The bud was lightly covered in rosin and rolled in the pressed kief. To use the rosin, I put a dab on my dab tool and melt it with my e-nail. Then while it's liquid I can smear it on the bud or leaves.


                Each of the fingers of the leaves were carefully removed. Using the rosin as an adhesive, I first made the tip of the cigar by putting a hole in the middle of the leaf and putting through the skewer.


                Smearing heated rosin on each leaf, I finished covering the cannagar. This was then vacuum sealed and will age until 4/20.

                          Nope, last year it took four people out. Finished it two sessions later.

                            Pressed some Jilly Bean **trim**. 3.75 grams pre-pressed and wrapped in a ChemX coffee filter.
                            Room temp 72°F/40% RH.
                            Plate temps 85°C/85°C, 5:00 press time, two presses.
                            Yield ~5% , 0.2 grams. Trim always yields low.

                                SolStix Build (1/2)

                                DIY lighting with the SolStix couldn't be easier. The SolStix is a strip LED PCB, the SolStrip, with a pre-drilled and tapped matching heatsink, the SolSink. They are designed for 1" angle, in my case I went with 1/8" aluminum. For this build, I plan to run six SolStix 5" apart. They need about 1/2" on either side, so both pieces were cut to 26". I laid everything out and checked my measurements.


                                Next I measured and pre-punched my holes. A bit of hint here, measure from the inside edge, not the outside edge. The thickness of the material needs to be taken into account. Instead of 1/2" from the inner edge, I did 1/2" from the outer edge. Luckily I just flipped the piece over and re-drilled the holes. I think I forgot the old saying "measure twice and cut once", my grandpa would be disappointed.


                                The SolStix come with hardware for mounting the strips to the heatsinks, but do not come with hardware to connect the heatsinks to the frame. They are tapped for M3 5mm screws. I got some M3 6mm to accommodate the thickness of the angle iron. Each screw was first screwed in lightly, giving some play to get all the holes aligned. After that the screws were each tightened to stabilize the whole frame.
