the tins turned out to be too big. they barely fit on the shelf. one tin had to be on one shelf, the other on another shelf. these new sterilites stack real easy. and when the aluminum tins went in the shmuvbox. it was difficult to maneuver. had to be real careful. now, this is real simple and the rig is sturdy. better be, spent about 4 hours searching for just the right rig. so, if you like it, you can save yourself alot of time. depending on the space available. this is a very tight space. so there is not much room to play with. all other space is utilized for storage.

spent the day on a printing rig run. looked everywhere. trying to utilize the space available. the problem was that none of the lower flat sterilites are the right size. all being bigger than the appropriate size to fit on the shelves. this was a run around target and walmart back and forth with bins and trays day.


flat baking trays. the thick ones. 10 bucks each but worth it. 15 jars fit per tray. found these 28 quart sterilites for about 5 bucks at target. 23"x26"x6"h. nice, clean, stackable. takes up very little space.

the trays can stack two in each bin.

easy and stackable. 30 prints per bin. put 3 together. and you have 90 print capacity. the bake pan, foil, and jars are baked in the oven for 30 mins at 350 degrees. once cool, the sterilite is thoroughly cleaned with rubbing alc and disinfectant spray. the trays are placed inside the plastic containter right out of the oven once cool. then taken to the clean area. or to the shmuvbox for printing.

caps cut off and laid down with glass jars over them. alllowed to print for 12-18 hours then caps are removed and prints are allowed to dry with jars over the prints for a few days. nice thing is. you can visually see inside these boxes without having to open them up.
 

just curious what the prints look like coming out of that tray . do they take on the characteristics of the mesh shelf..??



the prints look like they have a square mesh pattern on it. where the rack is, the print isn't on the foil. if that makes sense.

Looks good. I've been doing something similar, but without the jars and baking pans. I clean the bins and foil down with alcohol in front of the flow hood, then open the monotub up downstream from the printing bin. Start cutting the caps off with sterile scissors and plop them on the foil.

Im glad I didn't miss this thread.

Eatyualive- nice print teks, my foaf will be borrowing some of your methods the next print run.

AquaVelva- have you germinated from prints using your tek? My foaf was thinking of a way to use the hood to print. Do you worry about contams blowing off of the caps onto the foil or print behind it?

Peace:rasta:

im a bit confused here. this is what i got from this not sure if im right.

sterilite box with cookie sheet and foil cut up in the bottom of it.
then rack placed on top of cookie sheet.
then shroom placed on top of rack with jar over top of shroom?

please help thank you. love the idea of this.

only reason im confused is i dont see the point of the rack over the cookie sheet and the jar over the shroom.

did you take the rack out? dont know if im missing something on this.

Just saw this thread. This is a good one eats. It sure beats printing in an open air environment. I can see many variations of this method.

:scratches chin in deep thought:

no. the cookie rack isn't being used now. this is used to elevate the mushrooms above the foil so that the cap does not touch the foil. you can do it this way if you want. but the good old lay your cap on the foil with a jar over it works really well.

shmuv or in front of a flowhood. i cook the foil and trays for 30 mins at 350. then clean the kitchen area with bleach wipes. turn off the ac and spray disinfectant into the air prior to opening the oven and placing the hot tray, foil and jars into the tub. the tub has also been wiped with rubbing alc and sprayed with disinfectant prior. then move it to a clean area for cooling. once cool, spray the outside of the entire tub with lysol. then place it in your shmuv. once in the shmuv. time to print. cut the caps off and place each cap under each jar. let it sit overnight for 12 to 18 hours. then you can use a small bobby head needle to quickly lift each jar and remove the caps.

idea of whats going on:

1) so each bin is wiped with alc and lysoled to hell prior to doing anything.

2) the foil squares are laid out on the tray. and glass 1/2 pint jars are placed on each foil square.

3) these are placed in the oven at 350 for 30 mins. meanwhile. if the kitchen is not clean. wipe it down to hell. get it clean. you would probably want to do this first.

4) once the 30 mins is up. you spray lysol in the air everywhere. wear a mask. and use a thick few pieces of clean paper towels as your hot pad. quickly open your lid to your bin. open the oven and place your tray in your bin quickly. minimizing air time. doing all of this while its still hot. yes you might hear the plastic sizzle a little but its ok. it won't melt it much.

5) let it cool in your clean area.

6) now prior to doing any clean work with taking the prints. wipe the outside of your box with a bleach wipe, rubbing alchol. get it real clean before placing it in your clean work area being a flowhood, glovebox, shmuvbox ect.

7) cut the caps off. lift up the jar and place them face down on each foil. place the jar back over each cap.

8) wait 12 to 18 hours and then get a bobby head needle.

9) setup your clean area again. and clean your needle. then poke the top of each cap with the needle and take it off each piece of foil. you will see a dark print. place the jar back over the print. you really do everything with a quick motion. lifting the jar, placing the cap under in one fluid motion then placing the jar back down over the print.

10) close everything up, place your bin back in your dark clean area. let it dry a few days. then do another setup to fold up your prints.

11) remember that every time prior to taking your bin out and placing it in your clean area in preparation for clean work. always wipe the outside of your been thoroughly with rubbing alc or a bleach wipe.

12) fold up your print its done.
