Low-cost mobile hoophouse Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 16:09 Added cut list for metal frame parts. I'll have to go out and measure and count before I add a separate cut list for the wooden parts. I'm hesitant to give hard numbers for the wooden parts as I didn't build them to a spec, each part was custom fit to it's place due to the non-uniform nature of a hand-bent hoophouse frame, the wooden parts are best fit individually, especially on the endwalls.

To clarify, I was using PTO in a generic sense of "power transmission unit" vs desiring a device that actually incorporates a tractor style PTO hub like the Amish horse treadmills do. I was thinking more along the lines of a v-belt step pulley for different speed/torque applications belts being more forgiving in adjustments for a variety of different tasks. Not unlike the uses for stationary engines and belt pulleys on pre-50's tractors.

OK, I tried it and created a loose wiki for the hoophouse wheels, but I'm not sure if it works in the context of meta tool/secondary tool because the loose wiki doesn't have a tool forum attached to it for discussion. The wheels are something I'd really like somebody else's skull sweat on. I'd love them to have their own discussion. I do like Louis' vanity wiki though and it seems like the loose wikis would have a value as informational packets like that. But maybe a secondary tool needs its own entry on the tool forum?

Could someone do an example of creating a loose wiki and linking it so I can see how its done in the edits?

Hi RJ, I think I figured out how to emulate the bill of materials on the Fido tool wiki. I'd love to discuss how to document this further. When I click on the link you gave to contact you it takes me to my own profile?

I would welcome some advice on putting together material and construction details. Is there an approved format (examples)? I'm also very interested in feedback and discussion on methods for making the moving process faster/more efficient. Fully anchoring the houses in spring/summer/fall is also a work in progress and I would welcome community input. Also, the wheel assemblies are basically separate units/ although not at all complex. Should they be described as a separate entry? Also#2 we had to build a small bender to create the "Gothic arch" bends at the peaks. This would be best described as a semi-funtional prototype. Should that get it's own entry?
