Engineering Problem

  1. i have designed my own grow cabinet and it is almost all up and running, minus one problem i recently ran into. i have no way of getting power into the box without disturbing its lightproof quality. does anyone have any suggestions on how to get power into the box?

    Any number of ways:

    - Cut a hole only as big as you need, pull cords through, stuff black cloth all around them where they pass through the hole.

    - Use pvc pipe and two 90 degree bends, spraypaint the insides of these pices flat black, put one bend on the outside and one on the inside to form a S or C shape, fish wires through.
  3. that's easy. Drill a hole and run your power. Now at just about any hardware store they sell this stuff that is like a spray foam insulation. It comes out of an aeresol can and you fill the area desired. It will expand out a little bit and after a very short time it gets solid. I've used it to fill in areas of a wooden garage on our property when a mouse chews a hole in the side or something.
