    Slowly Losing it......
    Here is what I did with the thermo/hygro combo. It comes with a sticky velcro already on the back of it. All I did was cut a couple pieces out of a plastic water jug, cut some holes to keep ventilation and stuck it on there.

    I got a new little flashlight for candling but wanted a softer cushion and a way to create less gapping between the egg and the end of the flashlight.

    I was trying to think of what I had on hand that could work - weather stripping! It's cushiony (yes, that's a word lol) and sticky on one side, so easy to apply & work with - however, I decided I wanted to secure mine better with super glue once I had it in place.

    So I super glued the weather stripping around the end of the flashlight and voila! A perfect cushion and great seal on the egg for candling! Even if you don't have weather stripping on hand, it's super cheap and easy to pick up! [​IMG]

    Great info and LOVE the mic stand idea! How handy! I know my light isn't quite that many lumens but good to know if/when I switch up to higher power! The one I have right now is pretty great but I don't have any SUPER dark eggs at the moment. [​IMG]
