Rebuilding My Kiln
« on: April 30, 2018, 09:37:13 PM »
I decide to rebuild, or rehost my DH4000 kiln into a 20 ft insulated shipping container.   I have two of them I acquired after I built my kiln chamber into a US Mail truck box.   (pictures in my gallery http://forestryforum.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=1482 ).    I removed all of the kiln components and sold the old homemade chamber to another sawyer.

I decided to do this before I set up the kiln here at our new location.  Using the shipping container will be better for installing cart tracks and building lumber carts as it sits lower to the ground.   It will also allow me to dry a little more lumber than I could fit in the old box.    It is also better insulated and has much better doors.    

The one area I will need to do something about is the interior walls.   They are made of plastic or maybe fiberglass.   I will have to put up a half height wall of metal to keep from damaging them if they get hit with lumber.    In my old box I lined the interior wall with an old swimming pool metal wall.   It worked perfect.

I hope to start in this project in then next month or two.   I need to work around the builders and my ongoing house renovations.
