There is very little maintenance for your solar system. Natural weather conditions tend to keep them clean enough without losing much in efficiency. I just like to look over my system every couple of weeks and check the batteries and see if there is any sign of corrosion. Check the wires for any discoloration. Discoloration can be a sign your wires are getting to hot and might have to go to a larger gauge wire. All in all there is not a whole lot to keep up on.
The dimensions of the platform will depend upon the barrel you find. The barrel should ride on inverted casters mounted on the top of the platform. Position the casters so that the barrel will not jump off in either direction. If your barrel has beads where the top and bottom were attached, locate the casters just inside those beads. If your barrel is like mine, with a bead at the top and a taper at the bottom, the wheels should hit the barrel where it tapers at the bottom and just inside the bead at the top. Since there was no bead at the bottom, I attached a board between the wheels at what was the top of the barrel to keep the barrel from jumping off in that direction. The garden cart you plan to use will govern the height of your compost barrel's platform.
Long gone are the days when buying something from a different state - let alone a different country - would be an exotic or adventurous concept. It has now become an everyday experience to order something from an online store, wait a few days and then, hey presto, it's arrived as if by magic. You could be buying the latest mass-produced high-tech from Best Buy, a vintage, secondhand product from a seller on either eBay or eCRATER, or a uniquely upcycled handmade item from a creative craft maker located on the other side of the world via Etsy.
The central pneumatic air compressor has the ability to help homeowners complete large home improvement jobs that can get really expensive if they hire a contractor. The average cost of this compressor is $180.00 from Harbor Freight Tools, but it can be found online at a discount. Once you know you are able to replace dry wall or a window by yourself, the compressor will have paid for itself many times over.
The assembly instructions had me using a bolt, two washers, and a locknut on each leg to hold it in place. Problem is, that means that the legs will wear on the sideplates. Not a good idea. I bought 8 more flat stainless steel washers and slipped those washers in between the legs and the sidepanels. Now the legs will wear on the washers instead of the sideplates. This makes the leg securing assembly consist of the bolt head, washer, sideplate, washer, leg, washer, other sideplate, washer, then the locknut. So each of the legs now has 4 washers: two washers on the outside of the side panels, and two washers to keep the leg from rubbing on the sidewall directly. Again, don't overtighten, or the workbench won't fold up.
Orchard Supply to the rescue once again. The concrete molds have been in stock there forever. So get a walkway mold and align it with on one side or the other of your painted sheet. It's easiest to use a colored pencil similar in color to the color of your base coat. This makes it not so noticeable and you don't always stay within the lines so much, right kids? I tried using a Sharpie on one sheet and I hated myself for all the dark, heavy black lines left to cover. Using the mold upside down, trace the contour of the stones out onto the cardboard. Now, lightly scribe the two outside flanges where the pattern forms a "v" on one side and an "a" on the other side made by the mold's outside shape. These will be the keys to line up the next areas to be scribed since there's no concrete to line up the mold with again and the mold shape itself makes it hard the judge the distance from the last stone to the next to keep the mortar thickness the same. Once I can see the rocks I can't help but miss the ass in my face....yummy.
