I spent a surprising amount of time solving spin bar issues. I have a huge advantage insofar as my mantle temps can be held at or below 200° easily (too hot really) before the bar starts to demagnetize. I also took 220 grit sandpaper and sanded away all edges and made them smooth. Further I got a spin bar mechanism that is geared down so can spin very slow. I usually run the flask dry so a slow stir bar that will not spin out is a huge plus.
Slow stir bar speed stir bars are hard to track down but Amazon has those cheap. I have always been impressed with your attitude. A few days back a GLG member who normally posts only a little on F4200 sent me a message to me for being “childish and immature” when discussing procedures and called into question 99% of the processes I use. Scratching my head on this one because I only blocked the guy. I didn’t comment at all on his tech. Somebody must have whispered good things about me (huge mistake). He took exception to my bedroom hobby lab. I am not sure what triggered the trolling except that everyone has good days and bad days. It must have been a bad day because I cannot recall what the issue was other than being critical of using a small bedroom and set up. He then went on to explain why my set up cannot produce isolate of THC. He then asked me to avoid replying to any of his posts for lack of any real knowledge. What triggered the GLG guy into this sort of criticisism I don’t know but the point is to just ignore those folks that openly ridicule rather than provide reasonable insight. I will not reply to that GLG member and frankly he had already been blocked by me at IG because it just adds confusion.
My suggestion is to ignore those guys on a start up because it will confuse. There is more than one way to do anything so go with what you do know and ignore the trolling even if it is by a GLG member. The last person(s) I want to do is openly critisize GLG members because they are generally pretty knowledgable and I never DM anyway under normal circumstances.
Burning bridges comes so easy to folks rhese days I have to wonder if this is simply marketing product by running down the personality of others or if my materials and methods really are as dangerous as he lamented but to be fair I am childish and immature. However my goals are not the same as his which is very low cost methods to obtain as close to 99%+ as possible. Different methods work but procedures must be changed up (clean the sheets too damnit!!!). My method may be lame and my jokes a distraction which simply means you will have to supply you own jokes lol.
Good luck on you new rig. This is a fun hobby no matter how lame my humor is lol. I predict great success. As far as stir bars I too am looking for a better solution. Here is a link to a product I plan to try. They appear to be an answer to higher temps and except for possible cracking seem to be a great solution.
