    I had the same idea and used plexiglass for the table. What did you end up using for the replacement gloves??

    Well it actually ended up sucking ass hahaha. Would be fine if your using syringes, or use different gloves because I couldn't hold a scale steady haha.

    Yes they have very hard gloves... maybe just cut the gloves at the wrist and use steril rubber gloves on hands and stick through and it should still cover your arms and keep most airflow out...?

    O and yes the plexiglass is good so you dont loose agar wedges down there lol

    I've been looking on Ebay and there are several elbow length gloves for sale. Surely there is a good pair that would work perfectly and not be so stiff and bulky. Great minds think alike! Lol

    I've basically found you got 2 full length choices.

    First choice is thick and you lose dexterity and they are sold as drain cleaning gloves and are usually 60cm long, you get used to using them after a while and a single pair will last a thousand uses, so they geeat for fixing to your glove box, i use this type

    Enables me to have a proper seal with the box.

    2nd choice is cow/horse insemniation gloves, these are as thin as saran wrap and disposable single use, you can't fix them to the box holes as they just tear but you got maximum finger dexterity, albeit with little flappy bits of glove around your fingertips.

    Both easy found on amazon and ebay, I'm sure there must be others out there too for similar regular industry dirty work, think of the dirty job where you gotta stuff your whole arm in and add gloves

    just lots of practice mate, not joking here we messed about making sandwiches inside ours for practice.

    Load the bugger up with everything you might want in your subs and all the tools you'll need, and play for real, then gloved up make a fucking good sandwich :lmao:, make 20 if need be, make them until you can swiftly make a good sandwich as good a one as you can make outside the box, then when you this swift go back to doing fungi in it :D


    It is what we done, beauty is you've got all the learning pressure free and the mistakes are just dodgy sandwiches to feed the fam
