"Nope, sorry this is not in action anymore.  The design was good but needs tweeking.  I would of made it more closed up.  The worms kept falling down to the bottom and drying up.  Too much room between the top and bottom of the…"

"Thanks for your reply about your bin.  I'm trying to work up enough nerve to ask my husband to build me a FT, now that he's retired.  Knowing how folks would tweak their existing bins really helps with the design.  When I…"

"Thanks, Anisten, for sharing your experience with the BBQ grill screen in your flow through. I liked that it was pre-made, vs. having to install rods of some sort, but maybe that is still what I'll have to do to get the proper spacing."

"The grate for my bin my FIL found at the curb and it's from an old bbq. don't get one that close together tough it should be much wider. This bin does dry up quickly and the worms do fall to the bottom easily so you have to keep contents…"

Thanks Maria-Anisten. Now I am following your advise in the email- Keep some bedding underneath to catch some fugitives alive !

Anisten,
when you harvested you bin, was it dry in the center? The bin I am making is 40 inches by 40 inches and 24 inches deep. I won't be starting it up for a few weeks so, at this point I can still add a pipe in the center to water it or is that over doing it?
Above the harvest chamber, I used steel cable spaced about 1 inch. The cable has some give and I was going to use a hand rake to harvest.

Your thoughts?
Mark

Thanks for your comment. I think you have a great set up yourself. It’s nice that your hubby gets involved too.
