- If you have one of those huge travelling bags... it may be a great container for a stealth grow or an incubation chamber.

really happy with mine. cost me £80 including delivery, and in about 30 mins i had 5 bin liners full of wood chips, which if i was out sourcing would have cost me a good £32 at least.
the only problem i had was with the fresh shoots at the the ends of the branches. the shredder doesn't like them much and tends to spit them out into smaller but still intact lengths. think ill cut these off when i next do any shredding, but other than that I'm well chuffed :D

I bought an adjustable hole saw at harbor freight which I used to cut arm holes for a glove box but could be used on nearly any size hole under like 9 inches. across
If you live anywhere near a university or a good sized college, they typically will have an annual or semi annual sale of surplus items. You can get bookshelves for your work room, desks/tables and mini fridges which are great for cold dunking shiitakes or storing substrate you can't get to right away. You can keep the mini fridge a helluva lot cleaner than your food fridge too, unless you're OCD like me. :lol: I've seen lab equipment too, anything from glassware to bar scales.
I also second Harbor Freight; i started flipping through their paper catalogs at work, and found plenty of stuff to drool over. Bought my first digital scale from them. Their customer service is pretty good too, the scale arrived broken and they shipped out a replacement immediately. Didn't even require me to send the broken one back. If i was less ethical, i could have scored a free scale and had 2!
U-line is a good place to get bulk plastic bags and sheeting as well.
