DIY drying box

Post by Hmr81.5 »

Hello growroom.

So one evening I'm looking through forum and I find this https://growroom420.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4985

It got me thinking with all the replys so this weekend hmr81 and I decided we had a project to do and heres what we have come up with.

First off we got a box
Image
Added a pc fan and carbon filter to the side of the box after a hole was cut
Image
Image
Cut some netting to size and made bud hammocks with plant canes.
Image
Drilled some holes in the sides of the box to place the shelves
Image
As you can see starting to take shape
Image
Next the box was blacked out and the lid attached as a door. Some holes drilled into the bottom sides to allow air flow and here we are. DIY dryer box. This could easy be scaled up
Image
Image
Image

To make the fan work we used a 12v cig lighter socket and plug that into a battery pack (plugs into mains)

Going see how this little bit gets on in there and report back

Thanks for reading :Stoned:

I'm going to do a small review on some fans that I run I in my mini cab that would be great for this. And they plug right into regular usb port. Run off cell phone charger right from the wall if you want.

This in prototype phase. I got idea from a google search. Guy used a house moving box that can hang clothes in.

I keep thinking small as I have no idea what we will get off this first plant πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

I absolutely love this with all my heart guys, just make sure it doesn't dry the flower out to quick maybe you could look at a dimmer for the fan if that were the case but my word great job guys, I'll see you in the den shortly i imagine lol

Great project,

Smokes

I agree with smokey I feel that fan may run to fast, the ones I just posted have a high, medium, and low switch on them as wellπŸ˜‰

In a word Awesome!
Does it actually stope the smell from escaping? At the moment i have to use a tent with a cf. Sometging like this woild save alot of us some space. I've looked into the whole wedryer thing and the reviews are mixed at best tbh. But i do think we're onto something with this. If it ends up drying too quickly could we add some humidity packs to the mix or something?

Not sure on smell yet, early days but there is a small amount of weed in it so we will see. It's using car litter Carbon filters under the fan so we will see!

Agree on the fan. But I haven't tapped into the control wire so in theory I could slow it down but if you have one with low med high on I'd be interested in that for a usb option

I was thinking about using these https://www.quietpc.com/gel-fan-controller as an option but actually im going to run it on 9v so she runs at 3/4's speed(or just under) as all that box is doing it varying the voltage from max 12 to min 5.

We have plans for drier V2 at some point, so this thread could evolve lol

Another update on V2.... We have ordered a wardrobe moving box(integrated door and hanging rail) which we will fit a fan to the top and hang a cheap drying rack inside. Job done :)

I saw a completed version of this on the internet somewhere a while back. You can also buy prebuilt solid wardrobe ones with door locks, circ fans, cf's etc but their like 900 bucks or so. DIY is much more fun imo, here's a link for ideas
