    Call me crazy but I have recently been looking at some of the TSC feeders. I have a lot of their waterers and am tired of them dumping their bowls/buckets.

    TSC pricing is a little off at times though. A 1 Gallon waterer is $4.99. IMO good price. Their 7lb feeder which is the same size and almost LESS plastic is $14.99. [​IMG]

    Here is the Waterer:

    I plan on taking my dremel and cutting a hole in the top of the waterer and then taking a drill and drilling holes around the bottom to allow food to fall out into the tray.

    Thoughts?
