    I'm building a small (two 50-lb bag capacity) feed hopper out of plywood and plan on making a slide gate on the bottom. Has anyone made their own gate and would be willing to post pics?

    I'm guessing the only material that would work would be thin metal otherwise too much friction but am taking all ideas...Thanks.
