Easily “plant” mushroom sawdust spawn into logs using this high quality inoculation tool.
Custom-made by a machinist on Vancouver Island, BC Canada from anodized aluminum with a brass plunger, stainless steel tube, and replaceable wire spring.
Drill holes into log with a 12mm drill bit, insert the mushroom sawdust spawn of your choice with inoculation tool, then cover with melted wax to seal in moisture and prevent contaminants from entering. Simply unscrew brass plunger and the tool comes apart for easy cleaning or replacement of spring.
The “thumb” inoculator is designed for single handed operation, leaving one hand free to rotate the log. Those with smaller hands often prefer the “palm” inoculator with a broad rounded top that is easy on the hands. See our video for more details on how to use these tools.
