A True Rube Goldberg

I needed a food dehydrator so I invented one.

List of equipment use...

1 - panel fan used for cooling electrical panel in machinery
2 - bamboo skewers
1 - 1 gallon ice cream pail
1 - thingie you use to put hot pans on
     so not to burn your counter top

Cut a hole in the bottom of the pail for the fan
Poke 4 holes for the skewers to support the thingie
Cut some holes in the top lid of the pail for vents

Oh, i only had 3 leveling screws so I use a rifle bullet for the 4th leveler.

Glad it works. Now I know someone with a food dehydrator.

Maybe you should go on TV as the huckster for these. Or at least on YouTube.

What are you using for HEAT?

Or... you can just rubber band the suckers together and hang them to dry. Or... you can double bag them in a ziplock baggies and put them in the freezer whole.

Very clever, SER. One of these days, you are going to blow up the house?

OrbsCorbs said...

When you do, can I watch?

SER said...

toad...the heat off the motor

Orbs...nothing like that gasoline wood pile...that one is insane. it's apparent he doesn't know what fumes are, but i think he learned.

my late farther-in-law pulled a good one with fumes. up north at our trailer he cleaned up the yard of leaves and little branches. made a pile in the ditch and poured gas on it. took his time putting the gas back in the garage. the ditch is on a slight slant. he came back and lit it and b then the fumes travel about 50 feet down. boom, the whole ditch was on fire. it did look pretty cool as the flames spread, i was laugh'in. it didn't take long to put it out.
