Good morning from the mountain and thinking on a new dehydrator
Good morning from the mountain, we got a good start on the day. Got the kitten’s cage cleaned, and the kittens and chickens bathed with Dawn dishwashing liquid to kill the fleas. It works like a charm every time. You just wet them down, apply lots of blue dawn dishwashing liquid, and wait five minutes rise and dead fleas. Now that this is done I can focus on other things I need to get done.
I looked at new dehydrators today, I found one I liked, but I don’t know, even at $240, is it worth it. Maybe I should still build my own and just use two one hundred watt bulbs as the heat source and still use the fan from the Excalibur and a dimmer switch to control the temp. I could buy another one of the temperature gages that double as a Hygrometer. The hygrometer will help me to know the unit is working and it will let me know when it is almost dry enough. I will also be able to see the temp of the kitchen and the unit at the same time. The link is the one I am buying.
I wish I could have found a mechanical one, but the temperature gauge did not go high enough. That leaves me with the one above as a good choice. Here is the link I found that shows a more basic homemade dehydrator.
So I am at least past the planning stage of this. I wish I was this far in other things. Still need to get so much done, winter is coming!
Be Blessed Dear ones I will check in latter…
