okay now for some descriptions of the box. I didn't want to deal with the plexiglass and couldn't find any boxes of sufficient size that were clear on the sides. The duct taped box on sitting on top with the tub is a mattress air pump in a tupperware container with a regular air filter on top followed by a HEPA filter to clean the air. I installed two lightbulbs in the top of the box to light from inside, and also to allow me to get a clearer view through the translucent box. I used 4" PVC pipe couplings to attach my gloves (although I need to find some better gloves, the ones I have now I kinda clumsy). I sealed with that rubber sealent stuff every hole I cut and I also put a few layers of duct tape around the whole top of the box to create a little extra seal. I've used it once and don't have any contams (yet :-/). I was psyched about the box I think it will work out very nicely.

i have a ? for you. you have created a positive pressure glove box with the blower/ hepa filter, but you have no way for the air pressure to escape. what will you do to create the positive air flow? if you leave the box totally sealed then the positive pressure is not used, the air will just backflow and make your blower motor work too hard. typically in that sort of setup the holes for your hands would be left open and you would sterilize your hands up to your armpits and glove them then resterilize in the glovebox, then wipe down everything in the box while the positive flow keeps contams from entering.

looks real good to me otherwise, now haow about passing a slice of that pizza, i gots da muncheez!

Pizza's gone haha but in response to your main question, its not TOTALLY sealed, though its sealed pretty well there is enough air that escapes through the area where the lid attaches to the box to create a perfect positive flow box. I thought about that after I finally got the blower attached but turned it on and it has air escaping through a couple areas on the lid so I don't think there is any problem there. But yay, thats the jist
