I've tried searching the archives but my pittifully slow modem is killing me. Could someone please post the make and model of the blender shown at: http://www.nansnook.com/archives/3409.html

Not all blenders are created equally . . .

9er used an Osterizer, not sure exactly what model. i've used a few different kinds, they all seem to work so long as the pitcher part is glass, not plastic.

Wow, thanks! I expected to hear back from some one sometime today, not 4 minutes later.

Off to E-bay to find one

Try and get a good solid blender without cheaping out. What happens when you cheap out (I know this since my motto used to be, "Cheap Out") is that the blender base, being cheap, warps to fit the thread on your jar like a glove but often, it will not longer fit your blender, so you have a great crop but are forced to forego the smoothies.

Also, unless you plan on sterilizing the whole blender instead of just the base, it makes no difference if the pitcher is glass or plastic. I have a plastic pitcher. Actually I've never seen a glass one, but I confess I don't get out much.

the ones with glass are more expensive, and usually better quality, hence my recommendation.
that way you can sterilize the parts together, preventing the base from warping. of course, you can also screw it onto a mason jar...

Anyone tried cloning with a coffee grinder instead of a blender? Heard of it, have not tried it.
Gotta clone a massive GT tonite.
--blenders work well, but mine is at "another location", sooooo.........we'll see.

I know we are all on a low budget but at www.fungiperfecti.com the have a little blender device just made for shroom blending. The whole unit cost alot but it doesn't cost anything to look. Look under innoculation tools.

fishy, i tried it once, but it didn't do a very good job.

I can see why too. One of the Teks down there (H202 Cloning Tek)refers to using a coffee grinder for cloning. I am going to edit reflecting that a blender is better and link it to 9er Tek Blender Useage

What do you guys prefer for making pf cake dust?

By Nan (Nanook) on Wednesday, November 14, 2001 - 10:32 pm:

I break up the cakes into nuggets the size of shooter marbles and grind them with sterilized Worm Castings in a Hamilton Beach food processor.

It helps to sift the worm castings through a screen or strainer first... Had a rocky bag once... But this makes _perfect_ spawn powder every time.

Well, tried a grinder (new)free)
today and it does suck compared to a blender.
A GOOD blender is a great investment for those that are serious. It should AT LEAST have a removeable base and metal insert/blade thingy...A weird salsa jar fits mine- small jar-just enough for a few syringes full...and blade clearence, of course. Thanks fer the advice--
