SQUIRREL FEEDER No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture
Zoom Pictures

The squirrel feeder here is built from a wheel chair wheel that you use when you are moving around by your self. I then built two spokes from 5/4 deck board along with 4 – 10/24×6” machine bolts. this leaves about 4” sticking out for you to put the corn cobs on. I then used a piece of 1/2” copper pipe to act as a bearing for the 1/2” x 3” carriage bolt to spin on. I also used washers to space the wheel away from the post

this picture is wrong there miscommunication between my self and the original build of one. the reason I never could get it to spin because it was to tight. I found out today that you use the wheel of a wheel chair removing the outside ring so you have a bearing to make it spin unless you figure out how to put a bearing in the wood spoke like in this picture. it is to late tonight to take pictures and post but I will do it tomorrow. one thing about this one pictured here the squirrel would sit and eat. that is a bird feeder hang off the other side of the post
