wanareef Posted April 25, 2009 Share Posted April 25, 2009 Well finished the reflectors and now working on the hood. I wanted something like a pendant but this tank will need two 250w lamps and since I have about a doz URI actinic lamps thought that I would use them till they are all gone, then if needed go with T-5's later on. Something strong but lightweight and I don't have enough tools to do sheetmetal work right now, so a "wood" hood will have to do. I had this design in my mind while I was making the reflectors, torsion-type ribs light weight and strong. I used some scrap paneling that was 1/8" thick and cut out of a 2x4" some 1/4" pieces of material to go between the paneling - sandwhich. Now to just connect all the ribs together and cover it.
