    I want to get one online so I have the biggest selection, I know the glass top ones don't have good seals and the past for normal wooden ones are not perfect either. They aren't terrible but they do not pass the dollar bill test or the flashlight test. I don't know how to get a humidor company...

    Good morning, I have recently decided to start smoking cigars again (great choice), but the 50t humidor my wife bought me many years ago had aromatic pipe tobacco stored in it along with my cigars. After airing out the humidor and putting kitty litter in it to remove the pipe tobacco smell, I...

    I have several humidors that do not have very good seals. I have heard talk of something called a Spanish cedar lip that can be installed in the humidor to fix this. Where can I buy one and how hard are they to install?

    Where can I buy a Spanish cedar humidor with a perfect seal that looks great? This ticks me off because some of the humidors I ordered online were expensive.

    I have 4 70 % boveda packs in my 75 capacity humidor which the company says is enough to keep it at 70% exactly. However, It doesn't I have added 2 small sponges and a tube with gel beads in it but the humidity keeps going down. I thought my humidor had a good seal... I did the woosh test but...

    Well a recent post scared me into freezing. My 50 count humidor is full and has been holding 65% with the help of KL for a solid month. Just such a beautiful sight to finally see it full and I just didn't want a beetle to ruin it all. These are my cigars before and after the vacuum seal...

    Where is the sticky on how to do a proper seal test, or instructions? If the seal is not perfect or fails can the humi still hold decent RH or should it be trashed?

    The ones you have to pop loose with a knife, penny, ect. or the ones you peel off like old school canned fruit? Do any of you not trust seals on one or the other and jar them instead for aging? If I think I'm not going to be smoking through a tin within a month anyway is it a good idea to jar...

    New to the forums here. And to cigar smoking.... I have an 'old world' humidor from CI that I bought about 4 months ago. I use the heartfelt 70 for humidification. Initially when I received the humidor I seasoned it for two days with keeping a wet sponge in it. I did nto wipe down the...

    I'm having some trouble with my 100 count humi and I just wanted to know what was the standard/test for knowing that your seal is bad? My humi was a $60 one from CI and its having trouble holding humidity. I have the humi-care 70/70 gel in there, some kitty litter, and a double shot of...

    I'm trying to figure out if there is anything that I can put around the outside of the opening on my humidors in order to assist with the seal in winter. The seal isn't that bad, but in the winter its just so dry that I wind up putting more water in nearly every week. Obviously I don't want to...

    I have 4 different cheaphumidors humis and all of them have the same issue. The quadrant hinges were not installed properly and the lid is slightly raised in the back creating a small gap. Does anyone else have this issue with their humidors and how big of an issue is it when it comes to holding...

    I just picked up a HUM 5000 cabinet humidor and after inspecting it with the door closed on one side and the other I noticed some light gaps where the door is supposed to be pressed firmly against the foam... It has an Oasis humidifier. I was thinking about gluing some window AC foam to the...

    Hey guys, I was just wondering how valid the "dollar bill" test, according to you guys, is for checking if a humidor seals properly. I just got a new humi from, and it's not like the bill pulls out super-easily when I test it this way, but it's not like there's any risk of...

    I have heard on different occasions that for some reason if the spanish cedar on a humidor over laps from the top down it does not seal as good as if it over laps the lid from the bottom up. I don't know if that is confusing to understand but for those of you that do is this that big of a...

    So, looks like the winter's a-comin'. I've been running my space heater lately, which dries out the place a bit. Noticed my RH% on my humi about 8% lower than usual, at the 56 mark. I've got my 65% Heartfelt tube in there (just recharged), and added my original Credo to keep the tube happy...

    I've thought about buying some boxes of cigars to beat the SCHIP price increase, but my humidor is full. If I buy a sealed box and do not open it, will it be OK outside of a humidor, or will the cigars eventually dry out? Thanks,
