Re: Autofilling Humi for Walk In

Water usage for 300 cubic feet will likely be 3-5 gallons a month in a dry AZ residential setting, with a well sealed door. It's not high demand like a commercial walk in with the door opening 50...

Re: Autofilling Humi for Walk In

Sounds like you have a fun project. The measurements given are 300 cubic feet. As someone suggested the Trion 707 would be overkill. It is a centripetal device, which means it makes fairly...

Re: Monolith Humidor?

Best bet for less than 20 box storage is a small converted wine cooler. I have custom built MINI's with temp control that have 10box storage for someone who was limited in space, but as a "one off"...

Re: Aristocrat Cleaning/Polishing

I suggest the following. Day to day cleaning or dusting use a feather duster or lambs wool or a soft cotton cloth lightly dampened with water. The usual furniture polishes are fine as well.

Re: Where to Buy Humidifier Wicks for Aristocrat?

The wicks are cut & glued to fit each specific size humidifier. As far as I have been able to determine there is no "off the shelf" circular wick that comes in the correct diameter & height--either...

Re: Is it possible to convert to thermo cool?

The "tower" humidors are not great candidates for conversion to temp control-if one plans to use peltier cooling units. They are only 17" deep & have a full glass door. I have found one has to use...

Re: Humidor w/ copper lining?

Copper or tin was used quite often as a liner in pieces made from the 1920's-1940's. They were originally designed primarily for storing pipe tobacco, altho many were used for cigars as well.

Re: Looking for End Table Humidor

It's been my experience that there is no extra duty on humidors or furniture--just the usual VAT(GST?) & provincial sales tax. If one ships it in, you will have brokerage fee's based on...

Re: Commerical cabinet humi rehab-need a little ad

Re: Cabinet Humidor RH Question

Living near the ocean can pose it's own unique challenges with cigar storage. Consider the relationship of humidity & temperature. If you have 60% RH at an ambient temperature of 75...

Re: Electronic Humidification Input Appreciated

I have a bit of experience with both the trion 707 & the hurricane in commercial applications.

Re: Antique Humidor Question

Looks to be in great shape. The copper is either new or really cleaned up. Most of the ones I have seen had significant oxidation. Cut up apples were a common method of humidification back then &...
