    Tonight I spent some more time working on the doors. I went to the hardware store looking for something to use for the frame. I ended up finding some PVC molding that was the perfect measurements. Nice and light weight too. So I started with making a template out of cardboard.


    Next I used the template to trace the hole onto the back of the door. I used a sharp utility knife to cut out the hole. There was some cardboard in there foe support, I cut that away too. Finally I got the frame fit inside the door. I got tired and stopped there.


    I plan to tape the frame into place, flip the door around, and sample the frame together from the other side. Then I'll flip it over again and cut the hole out.

        Keep up the good work, ReikoX. It is difficult to maintain the attention to detail when all you really want is to "finish it". Closer and closer....

          I had a pretty productive weekend in the workshop. Friday I took a mental health day from work. The wireless internet went down, so I went home to work. By the time I got there, I lost all motivation, so I decided to putter in the workshop. I managed to finish cutting out the holes in the doors for the dark room louvers. I also had to trim up the bottom of the doors, they were rubbing on a high spot on the concrete. Finally I painted the door jams.



          Saturday I had the kiddo so nothing got done. On Sunday, I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and paint the doors outside. I did a couple coats of Killz primer as well as a couple coats of the blue. While I was waiting for the paint to dry between coats, I was able to get the door trim cut. There are a few gaps, but nothing some of that 3/4" putty @buzzmobile turned me on to wont fix.

                Fixer, I plan to have veg going here soon

                Now that the door is in, I hooked up my AC Infinity Cloudline T6 and matching Phresh filter in the veg room. I finally figured out the controller.


                I also got my strips mounted. I used the same plastic angle that I used for the frame of the door. The plan is to zip tie one to the shelf above except the top one will be hung from the ceiling. I just realized with the LDD drivers and the Bluefish controller, I won't have to use a timer.

                    Figured out the pin pattern on this Bluefish breakout cable today. Went ahead and labeled a drawing of it for future reference.


                    I am trying to figure out how I want to mount the components for the veg rack. Trying to decide how to lay them out. I spent way too long looking for matching bolts, nuts, and standoffs. In the end I found just enough hardware. My plan is to cut a piece of sheet metal the depth of the rack, bend it, and mount it on the side.


                    I added a 0-10V dimmer to my 16"x16" tent, this will be useful for cloning, quarantine, etc. My mothers are in there now and getting a bit hot with the current temperatures, so I dimmed it all the way down. I also cleaned the intake, the whole thing was covered in "dryer lint". That should also help cool it down in there.

                      I present to you the Veg Rack v1.0. Four shelves, each shelf has about 25 watts, individually dimmable running off Bluefish controller. I also have a fan for each level I need to install, I'm running some temperature tests now.

                            You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to ReikoX again.

                              Last night I washed a few 10x20" trays and my humidity dome. The tall humidity dome fits perfect on the shelf. I think I will do a little bit of re-organizing. Using the controller, the top shelf is set to 20% and the clone shelf is set to 5%, both on an 18/6 schedule. The shelf height is perfect for clones and seedlings, but a little bit too small for my bonsai mothers right now. I had to put them on the top shelf, and even then had to trim them a little bit. I think I am going to move the bottom shelf, it can go down one more level. That should give me enough height for my bonsai mothers and free up the top shelf for a couple of autos.
