  1. Cigar Accessory Questions
    So, living in campgrounds in the south and southwest is what I do. Time to build a large coolador. The problem is trying to keep everything inside cool. I have heard of the Peltier thermo stuff and even tried to figure out what would be needed. Just thick headed I guess, it seems so difficult to...

    I have came across a 32 bottle wine rack cooler for free. The only problem is the cooling unit does not work. I go to pick it up today, and was wondering where would be a good place to look online for a replacement cooling unit? I just want to check prices to see if it will be in the hundreds or...

    So tonight i was browsing around due to bordem. I came upon wine cooler humidors. But those are around 100 - 200 bucks. I then find Thermoelectric modules that are around 30 bucks or so and i was wondering if its possible to make these work with a cigar humidor and keep it at 70 degrees and...

    Hi Guys, I am thinking of adding TEC to my closet where I have a few of my desktop humidors and a cabinet humidor from Bob that does not have temp control. I initially wanted to add TEC to the actual cabinets from Bob. I decided not to because this is my first time trying this and I don't want...

    I am not sure if I even need to worry about temperature at all, but I would rather be safe than sorry. There is no way my wife is going to let me buy a wine cooler and I don't think I would let myself buy on. What I do have is a glorified coolidor. It's a 5cf minifridge that had been gutted and...

    In Singapore where I live, the climate is pretty close to what it is in Cuba. Natural humidity here is about 85%, so I have to use Bovedas to bring it down.. I do not need to use a passive humidification device as such.. I have a rock solid fix on 69% my problem now is the temp. 84 is the...

    I have really never had a problem keeping the temps down in my coolers,,,,especially living in NH I usually use a "frozen" cooler pack, and don't worry about the increased RH ( it is temporary) With the heat wave we are in,,,,,,10+ days of 95-100 degree temps makes this challenging as it takes...

    Hello All, As some of you know my humidor is way too hot. I am in a dorm with central heating/air and have no control. It's currently somewhere in the 75/76 range which is a concern to me. I need to get the temperature down quickly. I have plenty of beads so I'm not worried about anything that...

    So I read the VinoTemp thread. Lame! Does anyone actually make humis with automatic temp control? Automatic humidification? How about a humi / wine cooler combos? I live in FL, and temp is an issue here. HELP! :noidea:

    I asked this question in another place on the board and thought it would be more appropriate here. OK........so I did a little research on these peltier thermocoolers. This has my interest because I live in the oven area of the states. Winter time is not so bad, but summer time we only keep the...

    I have 2 units- one upstairs and one downstairs- The upstairs is blowing- I feel the air blowing- the thingamabob outside (can't think of the name) is operating, but no cold air. I did notice that there's no water being pumped out. I hear its the compressor, but hopefully it's something else...

    OK all, as some of you know I tackled a project to add a TEC (thermoelectric cooler) to my humidor. Test one was to completely gut and bash a Vinotemp and install the internals to see what the result was. Basically, it all worked but the setup was too small. I toyed with the idea of changing...
  13. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    well, I have a cabinet humidor that has been in need of some internal cooling to help out my cooling bill for the house. With the dropping of the Vinotemp price (and my ability to get one after a bit of a drive), I have started to gut the thing out. I have all the wiring, etc dismantled to...
  14. Coffee Discussion
    A while back I posited(:D) the question of how well a salad spinner would work for chaff removal and bean cooling. Seems like someone else had the same idea and it works well. If you're Mr. Moo and using a BBQ roaster the load may be too large, but for anyone using a SC/TO this might be just...

    Has anyone ever installed a Liquid Cooling system into their PC? If so how hard is it and do you recommend any systems that I can use with my Dell XPS 710? Thank you

    I know it's been asked and I know that if I used search I may have found something useful. I actually used search and found a little but I got tired of looking and just decided to ask. . My humidor is a small cab humi approx. 5 cubic feet. My temp rarely dips below 72 degrees Fahrenheit...

    I have been researching this but would to know more about this. My humi is about 8 cu ft. Thanks:ss

    Does anybody know where I can buy a thermo electric cooling unit. I want to install it in my cabinet. I've searched the web, but most units are large. I'd like to find something that is under 6x6 and under $200. Do they exist
  19. Cigar Accessory Questions
    Hey guys! I've been inspired by the numerous DIY humidors by fellow gorillas and want to build one of my own. I want to go the extra mile by putting a cooling unit in it similar to the one's used in vinotemps or other wine coolers. Does any one know a reputable vendor where I might be able to...

    Anybody done it? Do you need the fans like the wine fridges have or can you just use the plates?
