Default Humidors

Hello all -
New to the forum and have been smoking cigars throughout my 23 years in the Marines and am looking for a used tower humidor. Figured why not join a forum dedicated to the topic and thus would trust anyone who participated in this forum to give me a good deal.

I looked through the forum for a WTB section but didn't find one (could be user error). Im watching the craigslists, etc but in east Texas, Im not finding hardly any.

Great forum and I appreciate anyone's ideas.

Gary

WTB section is in the Cigars on the move section. Good luck, thank you for your service and dive right in.

If you haven't yet go to the new inmates processing section and introduce yourself. You're gonna like it here.

Talking Re: Humidors

Yeah What Tio said, I'd also recommend that you should head over to the new inmates section, start a new thread and just copy & paste the first paragraph in your first post
I have a few footlocker style humidors that I don't use anymore because keeping a truly proper seal in the winter time proved more work and stress than I was able to manage (eventually broke down and bought a couple enormous coolers to keep my stogies in, has made my life *far* less stressful and my stogies far more tasty!) I'd be more than willing to drop the old ones off with you but I live in Ohio, haha.
Btw welcome to the forum and thank you for your service!

You need to be on the site a while before some forums open for you.

+1 for coolers, I have two 48 litre coolers and have no wood ones anymore after struggling to keep humidity balanced.

My experience is similar. Iíve had 4 or 5 wood humidors and only one has been useful over time. Despite beautiful craftsmanship, the moisture inside warps them.

I use coolers for the majority of my storage and the remaining desktop humidor in my smoking area.

The only working humidor was a Savoy brand, similar to this one:

Good to hear. I misse this thread before, but wouldíve suggested the same, going with coolers. I had a tower. While it looked cool, I had to relegate it to my basement because I donít super cool my house in the summer and was concerned with beetles. Lost the tower when my basement flooded. Switched to coolers and havenít looked back. Much cheaper, and they float!

I will also jump on the cooler wagon. I've got a really nice custom humidor, but I'd rather have some coolers hidden away and a nice desktop humidor for smoking out of.

Another vote for coolers. I have eight and God only knows what a mess I'd have with traditional humidors! Just get some Spanish cedar and beads and you'll be good to go. And the fragrance when you open a full coolerdor is beyond scrumptious!
