    im a contractor, and took a roof fan out of someones house... if you have access to one you can do this:

    the motor is already strapped to a x bracket. remove fan blades.

    screw it to a piece of wood and stand on edge. build a wood bottom and plexiglass sides/top for light

    buy a wire wheel and it fits right on the auger.

    drill a few holes through some nuts and washers, a few cotter pins to make the wheel spin with the auger and your are all set..

    if you are somewhat mechanically inclined you can figure out where cotter pins need to go.. I will take a pic of mine later and post to help invision it..

    I bought a cement mixer from harbor freight. I also cut the cone front off and foamed a sonic tube onto it to extend it a few feet longer for turkeys which works great. Ill post pic tomorrow
