    If you go metal 1:12 standing seam will give you more headroom while keeping the peak down.

    I hate second stories. Consider a lean-to for office space.

    Your statement excludes Monarch lathes, so it isn't correct. Can anyone actually quote a manufacturers literature as to what "toolsteel" may have been used for the ways? Given the application I can...

    Why do you think you need gutters all around the bin? You just need a gutter over the entry door. When making the concrete floor, slope the concrete away from the outside of the bin. To keep water...

    Ok, missed the late 5/8. Gun drill the 5/8 and counterbore the 1.35. Far different, far easier problem than 1.35 blind hole 12 deep.
