Since there seems to be little interest in discussing any these topics among each other, I'm thinking of moving these posts to the Ferrocell website. I might set these posts up as references for cell use and operation. Seems like everyone already has everything figured out and doesn't need any input from anyone (or are just shy).
Is the dust mite INSIDE the cell or was it just on the outside surface? If it's inside, let me know and I'll replace your cell, NO CHARGE. I really try and keep the work area here very clean, but sometimes tiny bits of debris make their way into the mix. Normally, I would sell a 'polluted' cell as a 'blem'(blemished).
And I will post more experiments and tips over the next few months. Seems I spend more time away from the lab when the weather is nice! Once winter arrives, I'll be on the computer MUCH more often. I plan on re-vamping the Ferrocell website with more info on the glass and cell performance specs.
I'll take your advice and leave the forum up for now. I hope to see more people posting their images and sharing their experiences with the Ferrocell. Those of you who own one and have experimented with it will agree there is nothing in the world like it!!!
No, never saw a dust mite crawling across glass. I use commercial bubble-wrap purchased locally. The critter could have been hiding inside it. I may have to use some sort of pesticide to prevent this from happening again. (I hate to, we've killed enough bees with that stuff, almost better to put up with the bugs). Glad your cell is clear!
I'm sure everyone would like to see what you've done. So, if you can't re-size your images, email them to me and I'll post them for you. (you'll get that refund credit, too).
