    What is the minimum needle size to prevent clogging from mycelium when using LC or GLC? also do blunt tip needles damage the Rtv self sealing injection ports ?
    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Hey, I tried the blunts cause you can get em super long, but they would shred my ports much more quickly. So went back to sharps.. I use 14 or 16ga, which arnt easy to find in general, and at a decent price...not on Amazon or a anything.. But there mainly used in veterinary work on large animals, so if ya got a friend like that ask em.. otherwise , I just got a case in the mail.. and I'm always looking to expand my library or stock up on supplies myself.. so if ya wanna work a trade or something maybe? Also got a ton of the 60ccer which are great for LC innocs.. can run through bags with them.. I always hated resterilizing and using the 10ccers from spore vendors, but was all I had back then.. I also seemed to have alot more contam issues...haha. which was why I stepped up, cause I certainly didn't need to add more possible vectors for contams.. anyway, prints, prints from a personal iso maybe? , or supplies maybe... used to always be looking for more spawn bags before I started sourcing through these guys https://spawnmagic.com/?itm=TheDawnofCheapSpawn. Idk how they do it so cheap, I mean, materials overhead alone!.?! They mail it to my door cheaper than I can buy bags, grain and make it myself..haha. plus that means no more weekends glued to my PC, listening to that rocker pist..pist..pist.. haha. Anyway let me know!
