I have my Auger working well, so far one minor jam, which I caused just for testing to see how easy it was to unjam, The cooler you see in the video is a 100 Qts Coleman, I was able to fill it up in 8 minutes.
The one advantage of this system , is the fact that you can take the entire auger out of the bin, without touching the coal, I just tried it, to show a maintenance guy how it's done, just in case I am not around. The pressure on the auger caused by the weight of the coal is also adjustable, as it turned out, the coal bin holds about 8 tons.
There are many areas to improve on.
But here is the current list.
1: The power to the auger motor will be fed using relays
2: if the auger stops turning, the power shuts off in few seconds
3: A forward/reverse switch will be available to unjam the auger, in case of any binding
4: An oil drip system will be available as an option, to drop used transfat liquid ( which in essence is free ) to minimize dust, and for lubrication.
5:Powering the auger will be done by either a timer, on/off switch, or push buttons.
6:Couple of indicator lights
If you guys think of something extra, let me know.
