Some say the end is near. Some say we'll see armageddon soon. I certainly hope we will. I sure could use a vacation from this bullshit three ring circus sideshow of Freaks... Learn to swim. Cuz I'm praying for rain and I'm praying for tidal waves I wanna see the ground give way. I wanna watch it all go down. Mom please flush it all away. I wanna watch it go right in and down. I wanna watch it go right in. Watch you flush it all away. Time to bring it down again. Don't just call me pessimist. Try and read between the lines. I can't imagine why you wouldn't Welcome any change, my friend. I wanna see it all come down. suck it down. flush it down....TOOL
Now am in process of making of of these suckers ... but using a pc fan and tought how about mounting the pc supply in one of the corners of the box to slightly act as a heater...? If this is possible?
Might be able to give off some slight heat to help without overheating the pc supply...
seems to be blowing out alot to me have 6 air vent holes... + another pc fan inside it moving the air around...
How about this for an economical heat source. Use a 50 or 100 watt incandescent light bulb inside a coffee can (to block the light since you need to dry in the dark) inside the box. Or, a small box or galvanized steel duct with the bulb inside it outside of the dryer's intake and a light trap connecting it to the dryer. You could control the internal temperature with a ductstat inline thermostat (available at Home Depot or Menards) hooked up to the bulb.
Personally I think this idea rocks, Simple and 4 days in enough for me to dry.

Carbon filtering for a box like that can be as simple as buying a 'cut to fit carbon filter, about $9.00 at Menards and fitting it over your holes. I put it over all of the intake and out flow when I built mine. The filter is 48" by 16", even covering the basket for the muffin fan I used it only took one filter. Bud Dryer VV
What are you using for the heat source ? from what im seeing in your pics & reading in the thread the food dehydrator is the heat source correct ?
This is the obstacle im struggeling with right now,i think if i can raise the temp to a constant 80 degrees i can cut my drying time in half,ive got a massive cola getting ready to come down thats so dense it worries me, i cant bring myself to chop it up for drying,i think the added heat source speeding things up will assure no mold.
Ya know,there should be a seperate forum where members can post all the DIY stuff they've made,if i had seen your bud dryer before i sat & thought about mine,along with looking at Al Fuct's dryer it woulda made my job much easier.
yes, i was talking to a guy who did the light bulb idea but in a wooden cupboard and just blew a pc fan onto the built under a upside down bowl to distribute heat... he reckons it worked a treat and thinks that what i just built (this idea) is not going to work.
