  1. Hello my friends. I understand many of you build humidors on this platform. It would appear (to me at least) that what these people sell as a working humidor does not actually work. I hate to be so blunt, but there you have it! It is also the source of the most common questions that I am asked about in correspondence. I just received yet another one this AM... I know many of you are happy with your products and purchase of these, so for you simply ignore what I am going to ask. Operation of a humidor is in the eye of the beholder, I get that. I am curious however. Many of you kn
  2. I'm new to the forum. Let me start by saying Hi to everyone, I have done months of research ready pigfish post and comments which help much when learning however I still end up at ground 0. I am on the fence of buying this cigar cabinet it uses a compressor to regulate temperature when the compressor comes on the humidy fluctuates. Does anyone have any experience with this cigar cabinet or can recommend one which will hold 100 boxes and regulate temp. ? I read bigfish sells customs made but I could be wrong. Thanks for your help
  3. Cigar Quality I find it amazing the responses that arise out of the question of Cuban cigar quality. And since I just received this box of cigars in the post, I thought I might bring up the question once more. What does it mean, quality control? There are many facets to the question that simply scream opinion and prejudice. This particular examination, albeit brief is not intended to be subjective. I thought some of writing more of my opinions on the matter. What is the point, I thought to myself? You decide. Do you find this acceptable qu
  4. For you Ken! So what would it take for me to intentionally smoke a lousy cigar? Well, I had it and it is just taking room. I have a skull full of mush, and some wanker in Oz suggested that I smoke it and tell you all about it!!! The offer from the wanker included a potential bribe! Now onto the cigar. Appearance: lousy Finish: lousy Quality of construction: lousy Aroma: okay, it has been in the company of great cigars! Taste, first third: lousy Taste, second third: only slightly better than lousy Taste, last third: don't hold your breath!
  5. I don’t use any wood in my humidors. However I am tired of adapting different materials to construct the one shelf that I usually use. I have a minimalist approach to shelving. The more you use, the worse the humidor generally works. Shelves impede airflow. I prototyped a very simple shelf made of robust Spanish cedar. I wood carved a couple of members however they are so narrow that the carving was less than desired so I decided to embellish the last member with some Habanos cab “brands.” Brands as in branded or embossed brands… the ones that come off the tops of cabinet lids.
  6. That’s right folks, you heard it right. Apparently we have some NASA scientists on the board, obviously displaced by cuts to the agency just itching to team with me to create the perfect humidor. Today, early in the AM, I receive this transforming email from a guy, no a scientist, a hidden jewel amongst us plebes regarding a business proposition to create the perfect humidor. The question is should I take it??? It is obvious that I have impressed him with my knowledge, charm, whit (and of course good looks). My fortune has got me teary eyed… Here is the lett
  7. There is a lot in the analysis of humidor performance based on how you look at data. Take this case in point. I often look at raw data from my data loggers in a highly compressed, macro perspective. While this view can leave you, will leave you, without much in the way of detail, it will help you espy trends and shifts, and even corrections needed to your system. Here is the first data log. Now I data log this test box everyday, unless I forget to download the logger and reset it. I test a lot of stuff in this box. I house a few boxes of cigars in here plus my frauds collection. The cigar
  8. So I am not a 'fan' of the Oust Fan! However there are a number of people who don't have automated systems who would still like an automated timed fan that can push a hefty amount of air and water around inside their humidor. Seeing it is a holiday weekend, I decided to prototype such a device, and here it is! I purchased a couple of these programable timer modules about 6-8 months ago and have wondered just how good they are and what their mean-time to failure was. So I set one of them up to run a fan on a bench in the lab, 4 seconds run time, 4 seconds off time. The damn thing has
  9. Happy Birthday Ray Hope your day is everything you want it to be and you get to light up something real special cheers and many happy returns Steve P.S thanks for all your technical knowledge that you freely share here
  10. I have begun to delve a little into what I call micro analysis of humidor performance. I can't expect it to really excite anyone but me, but there is a certain amount of pleasure derived from making something work, making it work better and trying achieve perfection. It is interesting to see if an idea that you have will really turn into something that you will consider as a standardized design or whether it is a failure. This is the same humidor on two different days with similar temperatures (outside). My goal was to try to shallow the dehydration during cooling above the 80 dF ambient mark
