All good composters have a good vent system. You want air to circulate throughout your compost, but you don't want to let bugs in with the air. My barrel already had two holes in the top so I cut two 2" holes in the bottom that lined up with them. I then cut two lengths of 2" PVC pipe long enough to stick out of the barrel about 1 ½" top and bottom and then drilled several ½" holes in both pipes along the length that will be inside the barrel. After inserting the vent pipes in the barrel I then glued the Nibco fittings on the ends. This fitting has a screw-on cap that would have been used as a pressure fitting for a slip joint. Just unscrewed these caps and cut out a piece of screen cloth to fit inside them. Screw the caps on to the pipes then use some putty to fill any gaps between the pipes and the holes you had cut in the barrel. Find a good place set up, place the barrel on its platform and start throwing in those table scraps and grass clippings. It would be a good idea to keep the compost level inside the barrel just below the vent pipes so that rotating the barrel won't be too much of a task.
Up to this point, all my work has been done with the oxyacetylene torch. And I can honestly say many works to come are going to be done by way of the torch. But I have always being curious about arc welding. Especially since the weld is instantaneous because of the 10000 degree heat. This is especially useful in projects that would take a considerable amount of time to complete with a torch such as building a welding table.
I have good news for every women reading this article. Men are ridiculously easy to buy for. Seriously! We complicate things because we are complicated. We want pampered, soft, time away from the kids and a night of passion with the man we love. We want clothes that fit and flatter, preferably on sale. Today, we focus on the top five things that (almost) any guy will love.
Loose pieces are not usually allowed by LTL carriers as a pallet provides stability from pieces bouncing around in a truck and getting damaged. This is usually just listed on the shipping documentation and confirmed by the carrier for acceptance. The items may have wheels and are loaded on the truck as they are. Pieces are also counted by how many boxes are being shipped or the number of objects inside a box.
Oh it must be more than a couple decades now, but I can remember dealing with an independent contractor in my auto detailing business in Santa Barbara. He told me that he bought a very quiet generator, a Honda model, top of the line. He told me that he wanted one powerful enough to run a 5-hp vacuum, his buffers, lights, and a 1500 psi, 2.5 gallon per minute pressure washer all at the same time. I asked him why.
Be sure to lubricate all moving surfaces with oil, WD-40™ or a dry film lubricant (You can use a light grease on the two lead screws, but if you grease the sliding rail, I think you'll find that the grease will probably be a sawdust magnet!). Be sure to lubricate all sliding or rotating joints and connectors, especially those added washers on the legs where they mount to the sideplates.
