The Garden Groom = A trimming machine for 3 pymts of $33 ???

That may be possible, or make a single screen with different sizes on it :)

or maybe can be accomplished with changing the depth of the grill/how close it is to blade...

I'm looking forward to playing, but like you said, still dreaming for now :)

:yeahthats

The hvac grate looks more like the Trim Pro grate.
But, it's got to be large enough to cover the 9" face.
And, then there's the slot spacing...:chin:


I'm leaning hard toward the $50 Trim Pro grate.

Perhaps super glue a couple of plastic blocks on the sides to mount the grates on.

then duct tape the grates on and off for easy changin??

Neat idea.

Xactly! :headbange

A quick overview =

The shell of the GG is all plastic.
The face plate screws go into plastic.

The face plate is referred to as the "stationary blade".
Then, there is the "rotary blade".

I assume that means they're designed to work together in a scissor action.
Or rather, more like bypass pruners...
There is about 1/8" gap between them...

We're gonna need an extension cord...GG has only a 12"(-ish) cord

...

SWEET! As Lil Wayne said earlier, the suspense is building! If this turns out as well as I think it will, I'll definitely be picking one up before next harvest!! :woohoo:

Hey you guys, if you are willing to spend an extra $20.00 you could unscrew the plate that comes with the trimmer and bring it down to your local iron/metal worker. You could have them take a piece of stainless the same size and thickness with screw holes and draw them how much distance you want between holes. Then you could just screw it back on and bam, now you have the right design. That is what I am going to do if this blade works out and somebody comes up with the proper size grates. Thanks for listening.

I love a good brainstorm!

I love a good brainstorm!

Big thanks & :respect: for all the ideas!

Keep 'em comin!!!


If we can get the grill right, maybe we can use it as designed???

Imagine a herb hedge in that bottom right pic...

Maybe do all your trimming before harvesting?:chin:
Of course, you would also need a herb hedge! :headbange

No such thing as a bad idea in a brainstorm! :joint:

Looks ok. I dunno if I trust it to made precise cuts the way you would want for freshly cut bud. I think I'm going to hold off for the TrimBox itself. Can't go wrong with that if you have the money.

Yeah, whenever someone decides to try this...:rolleyes:

LOL what kind of dig is that??? ;)

I guess I gotta get offa my ass while I've got a couple of hrs to kill & see what I can duct tape to this rig...:D
