Quote from: glenn kangiser on December 28, 2008, 11:25:04 PMCool, Thanks, Steve... I actually got some work done today. I'm building my own solar tracker as I don't want to buy a commercial one. Too Expensive. I have been collecting junk for it for a while now but needed some heavy pipe that Whitlock and I picked up last trip plus some 1 1/2 square tubing to mount the panels on. It will be approximately 8' x 10' so has to be pretty substantial as we sometimes get strong wind here on the ridge. It is centered over the middle column in my shop about 6 feet above the roof to the center pivot point.It will use propane to power a hydraulic cylinder to track the sun East /West. North/South I will likely start out tracking manually. Hey Glenn I can rent you my old dog he moves with the sun.You can tie him to the panels until you get the cylinders working.

Maybe a little nutty but here you go.ACORN COFFEE Giliø kava 1 l (1 quart) acorns 1 l (1 quart) milk Dry freshly picked acorns at room temperature for a couple of days. Shell and cook in milk until soft, about 45-60 minutes. Remove acorns from milk and blot dry, saute in a dry skillet until golden brown. Grind scorched acorns and store in a tight container. To make acorn coffee, take 1 part water, 2 parts sweet cream or milk. Place 3 teaspoons acorn coffee in boiling water, boil 2-3 minutes, whiten with milk or cream and add sugar to taste
