On page 34 of your March 2008 issue, you had an article about corn shellers, mills and dryers. I have three corn dryers from my dad; he had the dryers hanging on the rafter of the barn.

The dryers are two wire frames 28-1/2 inches square and held apart 4 inches with two wires on the top and bottom with one wire on each side. These wires hinged on one frame and snapped on the opposite frame when in use, allowing the frames to fold flat when not in use and keeping the two sides as a unit. Each dryer would hold 100 ears of corn.
