He's vented one end CG.... and I guess you could unscrew the white bung for extra air if needed.....

Clever use of the "Smart Valve" there SS..... just the application for it I reckon, and from memory they're only about $30 each...

not that difficult, it"s a polycarbonate sheet, about $26 per m at B.

"compost tumbler huh ... hmmmmmmm ",

wouldn't be that difficult but I have no need for it, got plenty compost bins.

Should be pretty easy.

If cutting out the the door and using the cutout for he door itself,
make the cut where the hinges will be and screw the hinges i position
with selftappers before before cutting the other three sides,
then replace the selftappers with proper bolts. Will make it easier.

For a stand, two elevated sleepers to roll it on.
Don't forget some stoppers at each end to prevent it falling off.
