  •  Great idea! (5+ / 0-)

    A lot less space-consuming than my plan, which involved a couple of 2x4 rails and gradually rolling the drum from one end to the other.

    And I like the suggestion to build it tall enough to eliminate bending.  At my age, with my back, that's nothing but a good idea.

    But have you seen modern baby strollers?  I'm not sure those high-tech things qualify as wheels...

    •  No, I haven't (4+ / 0-)

      I try to keep as far away from modern babies as I can (Get off of my lawn!!)

      You may have to haunt garage sales to find an antique. Google "Freecycle" and your city/county/state to find stuff (esp. outgrown baby stuff) real cheap.

      Do little red wagons still have wheels, or are they  also hovercraft nowadays?

        LOL.  Yeah, me too, but I had to make an exception for that first grandkid, so have been getting a schooling in how much the technology has changed.

        Leo, THIS is what happens when the generation raised on Transformers starts dictating to the marketplace.  Lordy!  When THOSE strollers are recycled, their wheels will get put on an Indy car or something.

        I'll find something for the compost drum, though, and make something if I can't find something.
