i'm looking for some ideas on enclosures,so i thought i post here to see some stuff that other people have done.i'm looking for stuff like robc's plexi glass lids,and stuff creative like that.thanks,and i'm looking forward to seeing some cool cages!
I noticed that I have the same hinges and latches as on your cages. Seen them on others' custom stuff too. I randomly ordered them and they ended up perfect for the DIY stuff I was trying for. The plexiglass I used was far too thin and my custom cages ended up warping with my first project though.These I made last yr.
tjmi2000;1714413 Hey Warpig said:I use Acrylic adhesive SC-125 by Caseway Industrial. I'm sure you can find something locally. I bought a can about 1 quart, TOO MUCH. Its also sold in small bottles, buy small if your only going to make a few enclosures (less than 20 or so).
i dunno if you'll find them there though - i'm in Malaysia and so far only ONE branch has them.what are these called and where can i get them?!lol!i really like those.
keep 'em coming - it's one of the reasons i started a club night at my house every Saturday night - Sunday morning just to make enclosures.I have 15 custom enclosures. Just look up Enclosure Creations. I have a whole series. mostly terrestrial but my two latest are arboreals (#14 and #15). That may give you added ideas. I also posted them with somewhat like a tutorial in my youtube channel for some of them.
And I have only one I threw together and that one is for my Maraca comunial project.
Thanks. I was attaching them with silicone, which doesn't end up looking too great.Thanks guys-
farrisbaharom, if you feed crickets, you should change that mesh to metal mesh, I have had MANY of the enclosures I keep T's in get munched by crickets, and I have changed most to metal. Crix can and will eat through plastic mesh
Anubis, I use a liquid solvent to attach any plexi to plexi. If you buy some, get a small bottle/can, the stuff goes a LONNNG way.
