Ha ha I'm the same way. Office desk goes from neat and orderly to buried real quick. My tents get the same treatment my weld shop gets. They are a mess while working, but always get cleaned up at the end of the day.

It's a good way to keep pests, mold and other bad things in check, keeping a clean grow room.

The air circulation in the room, is enough to keep any wood from rotting.
In the attic, I will insulate the ducts if needed.
Im thinking alot about using my cooltubes, on a closed loop and use the hot air to heat part of the house. And use the exhaust I setup, mainly for air exchange.

The Electronics DIY Playground

Today I spend some good hours, at the Electronic DIY Playground.

Once I get it plugged in tomorrow, I'll post some more pictures.

Junction Box

I have borrowed two digi ballasts from a friend, as I wasn't able to find my 2nd old ballast. Instead of running one digi and one magnetic, I could just as well borrow two.

The "problem" is I can't cut the "plug n play" cables on my mates ballast, well at least im sure he would prefer I didn't. And I wanna mount my ballasts outside the room, so I had to do a little DIY junction box.




Cut and drilled a few holes for plug's and cables



Then a little soldering, tighten a few screws and the box was done.

Junction Box Install

Installed the junction box in the attic, pulled the lamp cables thru the celing down the the grow room.



The ballast then plugs into the box, to power two lights in the room.



Easy and simple, everything used you can buy on Ebay.

Changing Flow Direction

Got my 2nd "DIY" box fan home, and as I have had a few questions about the "box" on my exhaust. I figured I would show it here, as I had to change the flow direction. This fan is a little different, as I made it to run cool tubes. Years ago I had both 4" and 6" cool tubes, so I made this fan to fit both types.

Then I can just change the flow direction, as I got it home it's setup to push the air thru the 2x 4" falges. This I will change, as the tubes Im gonna use are 6"



I can simply unscrew the lit, that gives access to the fan.


Then unscrew the end peaces, with the flanges.


Swap them around and remount them


Now the fan is ready to push air thru my 6" cooltubes. (Pulling hot air, thru the fan will shorten it's life)

Flow Table Stand

I got started on my flow table, to start with Im building the stand. Still waiting on parts, for the table top.

First I cut all the wood battens into size, and pre drilled some holes.



Made a 2,4 m long floor frame, raising the tank of the floor.



The table will only be 2 meters, so the tank will have a 40 cm access point. The table top will be mounted on slides, so I can move it to each side. Giving me room, to move up the sides.



Yes I am aware that the tank is made of glass, it will be sorted out!
