You guys have reminded me that I have not finished my solar dehydrator yet. It's one of those little projects that gets put on the back burner whenever anything else pops up. It's been way too hot and the sun has been searing for the past three or four weeks around here so I have not been too eager to build stuff out in the shop. With solar dehydrators you must be cautious when the sun is very bright - you don't want to cook the food, just want to dry it. I try to never allow the food to get above 120F while drying. I have the collector part and the legs built and now I have to work on the box to hold the trays. I'll post some pics when I get done.
