Grain bin and trash strainer progress

More work on the grain bin; Ray continued the woodwork, and we made a change to the design when Bob pointed out that with sides 1 metre high he, at least, would find it difficult to get the bags out. The box is now to be 70cm high. The base was completed by having its sheet of aluminium glued in place. Another plywood panel, intended to be the ends, also had its aluminium attached and was sawn to height.

The fixing plates for the trash strainer grid were finally ready after painting, so the grid was assembled and now only needs to be dropped into the guides bolted to the sluice.
