Aerated Garbage Dries Corn Used For Bird Feed
I started with a standard garbage can. I cut a hole in one side of the can at the bottom and mounted a 3 by 3-in. dia., 1/10 hp fan out of a copy machine in the hole. I got the fan a long time ago for $5 at a local Xerox surplus store. Then I drilled a series of 3/8-in. holes just below lid level.
To keep corn dry, I simply plug in the fan and pull air through the grain with the lid on the can.
It works amazingly well. (Richard Marley, 445 County Rd. 25009, Mahomet, Ill. 61853; ph 217 586-5750)
