    I have built this glove box using simple tools. the holes were cut with the dremel, sealed with some caulk, the gloves are shoulder length used for cow inspections if you know what i mean.

    i have heard all kinds of information about using a glove box
    - attach the gloves/dont attach the gloves
    - spray cleaner(lysol, oust, alcohol, bleach)/dont spay cleaner
    - wet the entire area/keep it dry
    - use a wet towel on the bottom of the glove box

    I want this thread to establish glove box techniques that work and the methodologies/principals of working in a glove box. Let us work together to get this information in one area and not scattered

    Awesome SAB my brother. Happens to be the exact tub I made mine out of. My notes would be that I didn't like the PVC parts added to mine. I ended up taking the out due to them using up too much space inside the box. I also don't use gloves attached to the box either. I work in a room with little to no air movement and Lysol the shit out of the surrounding area. Also I Lysol the tub very heavily on the inside and out. Then I just use surgical gloves and a ton of ISO on my hands and forearms. Works great for me with very little contams in my jars. I do G2G, agar and just about everything in my box. So that's my 2cents anyway.

    cool Rooster, thanks for the response. It seems in this hobby everyone has their own way of getting the job done. do you flame sterilize the needle or use ISO alcohol?

    Glad to contribute. I flame sterilize everything and cool with a paper towel soaked in ISO. Usually have pretty good luck

    Hey Trout, I value your input on the glove box discussion. I can see why you use them, but I want this thread to be a discussion ON glove boxes, proper technique and such.

    Taken care of. I see your point I tend to just muddy the water sometimes.
