I want to get into sub ambient cooling, but I'm on a tight budget.

Right now, I want to try dry ice cooling, but I have trouble finding a cheap pot (<$200).

Do you know anyone making really cheap pots, or selling any used ones for under $200?

Thanks in advance smile.gif

Not sure if he still has it but a user on KPC has a pot for sale. 100+shipping

Otherwise wait for people that are going to the new marksman and sell their pots

Capwn also had one for sale in the marketplace. Not sure if he sold it or not.

Thanks VIPER

Do you think I can make this myself? It will cost under $100.

I'm not sure how to wield though, never done it before.
Could I super glue it together and use foam on the connections?

Honestly I have no idea. Superglue would probably crack under subzero so you would probably want/need to braze it together. Which may crack under subzero also. Not sure as i've never tried anything like it but you can grab a mapp torch and some solder for fairly cheap.

It would have to be brazed or pressed. There is no other way to really keep a good seal.

Thanks guys, I'll just get a used one, or maybe the Marksman...

Is the marksman any good for dry ice?

Not being sold at the moment, expensive but yes it works well for LN2 and DICE.
