    Hey guys, I'm having problems with my second humidor. For some reason it is only keeping 60% to 62% RH. Is this ok for cigars since I have a hard time bringing it to at least 65%. I'm even using a shot glass of distilled water that I keep in my humidor + the humidifier. I did all the test...

    I can't seem to get the humidity down to the 65% the beads are set up for. I have checked my digital hygrometer using the Boveda's 75.5% Calibration Kit several times and each time the hygrometer reads 75%. I have also placed more than 1/3 lb of a beads in a closed plastic container with the...

    What's the longest you've went without opening your humi's lid?

    Now that it is starting to warm up I am having some issues keeping my humi temp down. It is usually 70-72F which I am ok with, but when it gets to 74-75 I am worried about beetles hatching. Any suggestions?

    Just purchased my cigar oasis ultra and replaced the credo sponges with it. Now For the past 2 hours it has been going on and off(turns on for 10 seconds, turns off for 10 seconds). The humidity on the device goes up to 67 then drops 0.5 and turns on. I recently got back into smoking cigars so...

    Just curious, guys: how many of you keep your cigars at lower humidity ranges, and what are your takes on it? I hear some connoisseurs keep valuable ISOM's at 55-60% My storage container's staying at 60-61% right now, I'm wondering if I should add more h2o, or keep it where it is, if 60% has...

    I was just adding up shipping for my PIFs, Pass, and bombs. I think the members here are keeping the the Post office in business! BTW, I stopped adding pretty quick, figured if my wife ask I can honestly say "I don't know":kicknuts:

    Does anyone know of a way/place to keep track of my sticks online? I have them in an Excel spreadsheet now and i've seen threads about the Access DB. But is there something that lets me track them online? So that wherever I am I can look them up and keep track/make notes when I'm travelling...

    I wish all the manufacturers would stop finishing their boxes with polyurethane and gluing a paper insert on the inside of the lid, or worse yet, "felt"! What is MOW thinking by lining the lids with friggin felt? If I want a pool table, I'll buy one. Doesn't do anything to enhance the cigars...

    Hello all. Two questions for the experienced folks: 1. I recently placed an order (first one!)... took 12 days for the order to ship, according to the online tracking they provide. I'm assuming the cigars haven't been sitting in a post office for two weeks--just took the vendor that long to...

    I have a 40 cigar humidor and bought a bunch of cheap cigars. Here recently I got some better cigars but do not have room for them in the humidor. Obviously I can throw the crappy ones in a ziploc or something until I get a bigger humidor, but I was wandering how long or if a cellophane sealed...

    I feel like such a newb :D I just started smoking a pipe last week and I love it. It calms me in a way that nothing ever has. I've always been off the wall with having to be doing something but when I'm enjoying a pipe I can just sit and watch squirrels for an hour, or do nothing and it's all...

    I have trouble keeping a pipe lit for more than about 30 seconds between puffs. In other words, I need to keep puffing about every 20 to 30 seconds to keep it lit. I would like to be able to set my pipe down and come back to it about a minute later without re-lighting, kind of like a cigar. Is...

    (I have a feeling that this thread might already exist, but...) My wife and I jsut exchanged our Christmas eve gifts. She gave me a black leather 2-fingered carrying case. It holds my Man O' Wars perfectly! My question: How long can I leave a cigar in this case (out of my humi, obviously)...

    Looking for a little guidance with a new 125ct desktop humi. I bought it a week before Thanksgiving and seasoned it as recommended in the sticky thread (left a dish of distilled water and a sponge inside for about 10 days). Since the RH was holding nicely over 70% while empty after that time I...

    We all know that the square/rectangle pop top tins aren't the best at resealing. Well, I figured I'd pass along the technique I use when I want to stow a partial tin away in the cellar. I simply take the lid, and give the lip on each flat side a gentle squeeze so that it bows in a bit. WHen...

    I purchased a new 150 ct humidor about 10 days ago. I seasoned it by wiping the inside down once with distilled water and leaving a shot glass of distilled in there over night for 2 nights. I put my sticks in Tuesday of this past week and it sat nicely between 70-72 RH up until yesterday when in...
