    I need help!!!

    Usually I just buy cigars and smoke them within a day or two but I found this humidor at a garage sale for $10 so I thought I would get it and if I can learn a thing or two about it from the awesome people on here.

    Thanks for any info I can get!
    Ps I can post more pics if I need to.

    Looks like it’s lined in aromatic cedar, that’s good, I’ve been using the Boveda humidity packs to maintain mine. Get yah some 70% packs throw a couple in the humidor.

    Yes that’s humidifier, I was doing the distilled water thing for a while but switched to the humidity packs and haven’t looked back. Super easy low maintenance method of maintaining the humidity especially with that size humidor. Looks like a nice box, can’t beat the price.

    The main thing to do now is get the humidity up to and holding around 70%

    Yeah just drop the pack in the box n close it up. They will start to crystallize then you throw em out a replace with a fresh pack. I typically keep two in my humidor to maintain 70-72% humidity. The reason I moved away from distilled water was due to a runaway humidity issue where it was up to and over 80% then I ended up with mold that was caught early before destroying the investment.

    Pickin up a new humidity gage would be good idea as well, it’s nice know your maintaining temperature as well

    They last about a couple months in my box. The lining in your humidor looks a bit dry so it’s gonna take a couple days or so to get the humidity to stabilize, you could use a couple 75% packs to kick start the process

    Maybe use an 84% for a little bit and then kick it back down to a 69% pack. Thoughts on that

    ?

    With my humidor I use 70-75%, during the winter the box stays around 64deg so I use the higher humidity packs. Some of the humidity percentage you settle on going to depend on how your cigars burn once you get setup for long term storage.

    I noticed they have a hygrometer calibration packet. That might be an option to get this thing going again!

    Not a bad day to watch some Ducks football and smoke a cigar straight from Cuba and drink some beers with pork tenderloin on the pellet grill! 9C38752F-59DC-4D9C-924A-F3A7A618B511.jpg

    Yes, The black part is the humidifier part. But you just don't fill it with water or all the water will run out of those holes. You need a material that stays moist to hold the water and it can't be something that will create mold. I've refilled those humidifiers with that green foam filler that is used by florists. Just ask your florist for a piece and cut it with a razor to fit inside the black humidifier.

    But the advice to use those humidifier packs is good advice. FYI my cigar store just sold me one and he said its guaranteed to last 6 months. I was surprised to hear that.

    Whatever you use, first soak a piece of a sponge with distilled water, squeeze out the excess water and wipe every bit of the inside of the humidor- all the cedar wood. Just wipe to make it damp. don't flood it. Then close the lid of the still empty humidor and keep it closed for two days before you put any cigars in it.
