I have a glovebox made from a 20 gl. fish tank and I was thinking of putting a negative ion generater in it.
It's about the size of two halfpint wide mouth jars and is suppose to cover 1500',is this a good idea or not.

not in the box itself, but outside in your work area would be good.

Sorry to take so long to get back to this hippie but could you please elaborate on why I shouldn't put the negative ion generater inside the box. the box is totally sealed if that will help with any answer you may have.
Long live the fungi!!!

negative ion generators work by neutralizing the static electrical charge of dust particles, etc.
that makes said particles fall out of the air onto the ground.
that means there will be a really nasty residue on the floor near the generator,
which is not something you'd want inside the 'box, since your movements will easily swirl it back into the air.

hmm ok, i have been reading for then last while about glovebox use, etc. I still dont get it tho. Do I spray the inside with lysol then put all the stuff in it i am goin to use? If i do that then wont it kill the spores? I am wanting to make prints right now so I know i wipe the cards/tin foil off with alchohol then let them dry, place in glove box, cover the clean portion, spray the box with lysol, but how do i have the cap inside while i sterilize?? i dont get it! any help or links that i cannot find would be great i have been searchin the archives for info

you put all the stuff in 1st, including the lysol, then you spray lysol after it's sealed.
you can put the cap in a jar, or wrap items in foil, to protect them from direct lysol contact.
never light a flame in a lysol-filled box.

Concentrated Lysol fumes will kill the gills of printing caps. Pretty quickly too. If you are using a sealed box and you are going to be printing... Probably a good idea to use 10% bleach solution and spray with that instead of Lysol.

Glove boxes are beatiful things. I love mine , mine was made from a big rubbermaid container, onle large side of a ten gallon aquirium for the see thru top cut into the plastic top and sealed with RTV sealent , for the gloves i just used Subway sandwich bags taped all around the edge of the wholes with ducttape. The end cut off of the bag with a rubberband rolled into the end of the bag inside the box. And latex exame gloves, so what happens here is the gloves are on, all materials in box ready to go , I slide hands into holes thru bag where the rubberband closes snug around my wrist. Spray the insides with bleach solution let stand for a few minutes and start work its all good.......Blessed Be

i bought lysol for nothin nan? Alright, well Im goina be makin up some syringes from some prints i got from ralph today. Figure if i wipe down a shot glass with alchohol, toss it in the glovebox, with the print and a few syringes full of sterile water (boiled syringes while dissasembled and then assembled with clean tongs and alchohol cleaned hands, and sucked in and squirted out 3-4 times with boiling water, then sucked in once, put the caps on the needles and tossed in a zip lock) oh ya and use a sterile scapel or something of the sort to scrap the spores off, should work, right??

Sounds like a plan Cbee You don't need to disassemble the syringe plunger from the barrel.

You can inoculate liquid culture directly with dry spores, no need to wait as the liquid media will rehydrate spores just fine. In fact I inoculate liquid culture jars directly from prints and skip making spore syringes altogether.

I would think you want to wait 6-12 hours minimum rehydration time for spores before you shoot PF jars.

you can substitute chlorine bleach, used for laundry, instead of lysol.
dilute it 10:1 water:bleach.
