    I have 5 3500s on the way going to get the 190w I think it is meanwell at 1050ma. Ill order another 5 and driver in another month or so and by spring plan to have a third of the same going, maybe a lower wattage driver for the third. Looking to have around 450 LED watts up in the flower box by time I'm done.

    I haven't gotten a chance to put it to use yet. Should be getting it sealed up today and the exhaust system mounted.

    I've got it installed. The only noise I hear is wind noise in the vent I have this thing here booted right up to the end and going straight out the top. Awful bit of wind noise. [​IMG]

    Fan mounted, filter will be made in the next couple weeks

    I put in a floor a foot and a half below the main surface to allow for a bit of lateral growth to go along with the scrog, this will free up some room to make a lower screen and more room for colas and lights.

    And with the full upper platform in tact. I'm thinking a nice SOG run will be in the future.

    And the bottom box. 2 of the lights are borrowed for my cactii currently. No need for all 4 lights for that one little sprout of bagseed right now. That will be one bright little box once it's in full force though.

    Well I have everything to get a cob fixture burning when the time comes. Tho the heatsinks I got only came with unthreaded m3 size holes and the only m3 screws I can find in town are half inch long zinc screws and I can't find an m3 .5 tap sold by itself either. Apparently the penalty for cutting m3 threads with these screws is "Off with its head!" because I've already had to drill back out a few because there wasn't enough to grab with the vice grips. I'm going to check like 2 more places for shorter screws and a tap today maybe I'll get lucky. Else i'll just have to buy a whole tap set when I get paid this weekend.

    I found some class 12.9 steel screws at fastenal. Wish I would have started with that. I've got the cobs assembled and ready to get the framing and suspending hardware this weekend and I'll get some shots of all that when it's done.

    How are the cobs coming along,
    Have you found a way to dampen the sound of the wind noise?

    Cobs are all mounted to heatsinks and wired up, sitting in a box waiting for me to get some angle aluminum or some sort of framing material to mount them in the air. I haven't had a chance to mess with the exhaust. I'm thinking of just taking some tubing and making a soft curve upwards out of the fan with it and do away with that one piece I have in there altogether.

    Ok, I got my first fixture strung up. Worked out a handy little pulley system for it, maybe before long I'll put a crank instead of the loop n hook method i've currently got jimmied up in there =).

    While contemplating how to arrange my filter, I had this idea that I started today, doing away with the tube and putting the vent intake about as high in the unit as I could get it and freed up a LOT of room for vertical light movement. I figure I'll make a 'fill hole' plug on the top of the unit to fill and vacuum out as needed, but I figure if I put a screen or maybe a sheet of activated carbon filter and put across the back of the box where the vent tube connects, and then a grate over the front opening and then fill the box there with activated carbon it would make a mighty fine integrated filter box.

    Any reason why it wouldn't? its roughly 400 - 450 cubic inch wedge shaped in that little nook there.

    Thanks. I've spent quite a bit of time and money with it. I have a bit to do even still. As of right now the plan is in the end it's going to house a flat screen TV.

    Mostly all funded my Amazon MTURK work in my spare time =).

    Almost 'done' with this this project. I use the term loosely because are we ever done?



    [​IMG]
    The closed unit. Not quite light-tight, but it's getting there.




    [​IMG]
    Behind the doors, a removable (a few bolts holds it to 1.25" steel 'angle iron' frame) piece of plywood seals the top unit from light and air leaks out the doors. Probably will mount a tv wall mount on it and mount a flat screen tv on it, I think it will fit. There is 6 inches clearance between the plywood and the door. A Homemade air purifier/TV stand is the perfect cover. ;)


    [​IMG]
    Behind the plywood is the mainstage.

    On the bottom doors, left is where the youngin's go, right is a 'utility room' that is currently a bit cluttered with tools and stuf.

    Just little touches here n there and one more cob unit to get together.

    Picked up fella from amazon. Freed up about a half a foot in height in the bottom box. My old light fixture sat atop the 4 angle brackets that I haven't removed yet.

    Ordered the supplies to make another COB unit just like the one pictured before in the thread, so that will be 2x ~185 watt cob units to blast the flowering chamber of mixed 3000k and 3500k clu048-1212's.

    O and 20 lbs of activated carbon pellets for the air cleaner chamber.

    The inside footprint is about 2.5 ft deep, 4 ft or so wide and just under 4 ft tall. There's a shelf in the back that goes behind the veg box to hold the pots containing the flowering ones that keeps them hidden nested nicely as not to sacrifice the precious verticle space.

    Almost done, just gotta tidy up a few last bits and make the screen.
