Here is another idea for a port
able grain bin. This bin is made
somewhat like a barrel exeept the
itaves are straight and parallel
instead of being curved, and the
hoops are made of heavy wire.
The staves are made of 1x6 fenc

across these and staple the wire
to each stave where it crosses.
This makes a sort of draper or
wide belt of the staves, which,
when stood up and bent until the
ends of the wires meet, forms a

cylinder complete, When the bin

with the wire or hoop side inner
most and laid away in the dry.
It will be Been that when cylin
der is in use with the hopps on
the outside, the edges of all the
staves will be pressed tightly
together, but when it is rolled
in the other direction with the
wire innermost the staves will
separate, thus allowing a shorter
bend and making a comparativly
small roll. The details of floor and
roof can be worked out as in
other portable bins.
