We have always tinkered with things; usually because things were broken and we needed to fix them - or badly designed and we couldn't afford a better one. But sometimes, we tinkered because there wasn't a better one. Sometimes, we had no choice but to come up with new ideas.
And so after doing this all our lives, we've come up with some ideas that really amaze people; "How did you do THAT!" they exclaim. And so this website is about How We Do Stuff.
One of our most popular products is our download-only video on making your own chicken feeder/waterer.

Below you'll find short videos explaining more about these ideas, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to let us know!
Made from a recycled 5-gallon, 55-gallon drum with just a float valve and few fittings, this is simply the best feeder/waterer I've ever seen.
