  1. Hi! First time posting and I did look but couldn't find an answer so sorry if this has been covered before. I will also say a lot here because I want you to have all the facts... I've just stepped up from a 20 stick desktop to a 100 stick Adorini Chianti, which finished seasoning last night (with four 60g boveda seasoning packs) I moved my dwindled post-christmas supply of 17 cigars in straight away along with four 65% packs, one on each shelf and the fourth behind the shelves, vertically up the back wall but still technically sat at the bottom. I have three hygros: one Caliber IV an
  2. Hello fellow FOH’ers! I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful wife who surprised me with a NewAir CC-300H for my birthday and since I am new to FOH and have never had a humidor larger than 100 count, I have several questions that I would greatly appreciate some help answering! After plenty of hours researching and trying to figure out how to best execute setting up the CC-300H, I was hoping that I could leverage the knowledge and experience of this awesome group to best help me get started on the right foot! Before I list the questions, here are my plans for the unit so far:
  3. I caught this little critter cherry-pickin' some stock in my humidor...... ??
  4. Weighing options for a large humidor that can hold my whole collection. Does anyone have experience with either of these brands; Wacota or Gerber? Seem to represent both ends of the price spectrum. Cooling would need to be added for my locale. Thanks for your input!
  5. This is a question mainly for those living near czar central. I know people have asked about finding spanish cedar around oz before but does anyone know a source of spanish cedar around the Brisbane (Australia) region? Ive confirmed that a NSW mob have it but i am wondering if there is any closer to home that doesnt need posting. thanks
  6. Recently did a quick inventory of my 2 large humidors and found that a 50 cab of Punch DC and 10 box of Cohiba Piramides contained sticks that were damaged. It appeared the ends on some of the cigars were frayed and the wrappers seemed to be disintegrating somehow. Appreciate if anyone who has had this occur to them can clue me in on whether its a humidor humidity issue or possibly a knock off characteristic. I do not believe I had purchased these boxes from FOH and no other boxes seem to have his issue!
  7. Hola mi amigos! I'm new here. Though I've been reading this forum for well over a year. I must say a general thank you to all the advice given here. If it wasnt for some posts I would have never made it to my second wineador! Just like the warnings, once you start you always go bigger! I'm currently working on seasoning my second wineador. This one is much more complicated. It is compressor run, so I've made modifications to make it a running sealed unit. I currently have my RH to a 68% struggling for the 70-72% I've been striving. Racking my brain and reading, noting is coming to m
  8. Purchased a Wine cabinet off of craigslist for $20. After ripping out the wine rack I lined it with Spanish Cedar (as it turns out, the stuff is not cheap!) and built some shelves out of the same. Exterior made of pine but it is all sealed off from the inside using the cedar. The door is sealed fairly well and is held closed by several rare earth magnets. I have a Cigar Oasis Plus 3.0 in addition to some silicon beads keeping the humidity at 65-66%. Humidifier, fans and lights are all powered internally via a USB pass through port normally used to retrofit in a car/boat and rigged to run
  9. Hi everyone, What are your thoughts on this: This company leaves minor "ventilation gaps" in their humidors, arguing that ventilation is important. Won't this make it really hard to maintain humidity?
  10. What sort of cigar related barn finds have you found? I was on craigslist and found a humidor for sale...immediately drove 1.5 hours to pick this thing up! An Aristocrat from 2005, complete with dry, broken, damaged and aged cubans! It was big mess, a bit of mold in the active humidifier, and lot of sad looking expensive cigars. Ruined Cohiba 35th I'm going to attempt to recover these guys but i doubt anything good will come of them. There's a slight warp in the inner door panel from who knows what, so i caulked it with low odor seala
  11. I'm excited to show you guys my new humidor I've been working on with a good friend of mine. Decided a while back, after seeing some of the great humidors @BTWheezy was cranking out, that it was time for me to finish an old project of mine. It was actually my dad, that started building a humidor for me some 15 years ago. It was meant to be a surprise, but I kinda knew it was happening. Guess live got in the way, and the unfinished box has been sitting around my dad's shop for all these years. I've since moved to a different country, but as it turns out, my friend is a very talented w
  12. Mods: Please delete if this is inappropriate, but wanted folks to know of a great deal available on a JC Pendergast 48 inch humidor (not mine). This is a large-style cabinet humidor in apparently excellent condition. Comes with humidification unit, though the seller indicates humidistat needs to be replaced. Only $350. Location is Greenville, South Carolina. If interested, please PM me and I'll connect you to seller. I was going to buy this but wife's car troubles put a damper on my plans. Seller is a collector and has two of these but no longer needs one. I do not personally know seller, but
  13. These are the photos from Bob. I pick it up tomorrow. I went with a more modern style but using black walnut. There’s also an inlayed top. It is just in time, too. I have a few packages from our host on the way with nowhere to put them!
  14. Hi friends, So after completing my first 2 humidors (see: “Humidors and cigar boxes” thread), I’ve realized that while I like how those humidors turned out, they didn’t solve my main issue: I need a larger space to store boxes of cigars while they age. @BarryNY yes you were right! Furthermore, I don’t have convenient counter space to leave the humidors for months, let alone years, at a stretch. Sitting in my home office, I think I have come up with a solution: the Wheezydor, for lack of a better name. I’m going to retrofit a couple of bookcase shelves into humido
  15. Hello everyone, I was hoping to get a little advise from someone who has successfully set up and maintained a coolidor. I just recently picked up a 55 quart cooler from the local Wal-Mart in preparation of receiving a couple boxes of CCs. I will pose my questions in list form. 1. Viable humidification options? I live in Arizona so we are extremely dry all year. Have some silica kitty litter to experiment with. 2. Hygrometers, and hygrometers accuracy? I have an older xikar hygrometer that can still be calibrated, but was curious about wireless probes to mount in the coolido
  16. Not sure or have come across this in this forum. Searched but nothing. But has anyone ever did a collection of there sticks? I love watching videos on youtube with people showing off there box collection. Anyone want to post? There cabinet/boxes?
  17. My Montegue cabinet humidor has served me well, but the Tetris game is getting harder and harder! I’m at about 1,100 cigars, and with 8 more boxes in the air, it’s gonna be tight for a bit Fortunately, I have a MXT on order from Bob Staebell. It should be here in about 6-7 weeks. It can’t get here soon enough! My 24:24 activity will have to go on hiatus for a bit, I think.
  18. Hey, So I recently bought some Custom Rolls from local guy. He told me that they like higher humidity levels...72RH. I told him I'm using Bovedas in my Wineador...He said to get rid of em...Something about Boveda using a newer solution with some salts or something that Rob cigars of their natural oils. I searched around online and on this forum a bunch and didn't find anything on the matter. Has anyone else heard anything about this? Can anyone present evidence that Bovedas are ore aren't robbing cigars of their natural oils? Thanks! E
  19. Hey all - another question for you... some of my wrappers have been breaking apart while smoking...seem to be fine before....rh problem? Once I calibrated my hydrometer I'm at 64rh while staying pretty much at 61°f...any help greatly appreciated. Any suggestions on where to start on my rh target for this temp?
  20. I did a quick search on the model number and it did not bring up much, so I thought I'd ask: Anyone using (or know of anyone using), one of these: Liebherr ZKes 453 temp & humidity controlled Humidor? (link: ) Concept seems sound (and in-line with @PigFish concepts [I wonder who holds the component patents...], sans the data logging capability. It would be interesting, if one were so inclined to mess with a ~$3k appliance, to hack int
  21. I apologize for this noob issue, I felt it was fairly unique...but then PigFish suggested I post here (after I messaged with him alone) for further scrutiny among friends, so here goes, and I am sorry for the length... I bought my first mail order box of sticks from - somewhere overseas as some of you saw my post from Saturday- they arrived perfectly. In preparation, my 2+ year old desktop 50 cigar humidor with glass top...was empty and with 4 72% Boveda packs - struggling to maintain 62% humidity according to the little Xikar circular hygrometer, that in a test earlier that week perform
  22. This might turn into a very long post, but I wanted to share this build with everyone in case you are thinking about doing something similar. I'm going to keep this very high level, if you have questions, just let me know. First and foremost, I am just a marketing nerd that knows how to build webpages and code. My garage turned into a workshop a few years ago and I do as much woodworking when I have some free time. Background I have 3 humidors in various parts of the house and recently my daughter started to use one as a step stool, and I decided that I needed to consolidate everything
  23. I've been thinking about starting this topic for awhile, yet was a little hesitant to list my stock count as it may be perceived as vainglorious and boastful, when in actuality I am trying to future-proof my cigar hobby as best I can against legislative changes and tax increases. After discussing with planetary how to go about getting collective data via pm, I relented and thought I would so in the best interests of our FoH cigar community. My marca breakdown is below... Cohiba - 210 or 21.3% H.Upmann - 123 or 12.4% Partagas - 115 or 11.6% Montecristo - 88 or 9% Por Larranaga - 75 or 7.6%
  24. So, if one could maintain their home at 60/60 or 65/65 this would be perfection. Just replace the books with boxes of cigars. Does anyone actually have an open area humidor? I've not seen one yet.
  25. I just bought one of these to store 6 or so boxes in at the office. I like it a lot so far. Temperature seems to be spot on although the humidity is still "off" a bit when comparing my OasisXL vs. my electronic gauge...not sure why that is. I seem to see a direct correlation between when the "fridge" is running and lowering/maintaining temperature and the humidity. If I see the humidity up a bit it's almost because the compressor hasn't kicked in to lower/maintain temp. Once it kicks in the humidity goes back to spot on. What's the trick here? Or will it be constantly adjusting itself?
