You shouldn't need a generator, just a deep cycle battery, a small inverter, an a way to
charge/recharge the battery. You'd want them at home if the power goes out anyway. If you use
lower pressures y...

Ok. I'm an actual, real life sleep doctor, and this thread got unexpectedly heated. Wow.Anyway,
I'm seeing a lot of posters state they're not that overweight, they still have it, and they're

Thanks for the replies, they were helpful.I harvested over 4 days and have at least 2 lbs. of

Direct heating of glass vessels is always risky. The thicker the glass and the larger the
vessel, the more time it takes to disperse the heat evenly. Most failure comes from thermal
stress. The shape ...
