We all love the sound of our shoes pounding around in the dryer attempting to get dry.
Yea I know I need a shoe dryer.
I built one and it is ok.
But for a quickie shoe drying fix most dryers have a grate in the rear with holes punched into it..
I took a piece of 6011 welding rod busted the flux off of it with a hammer and inserted
it into one of the holes.. I curved it to make it come back out towards me through a lower hole and took pliers and bent the sticking short end down to secure it.
I then hang my shoes on this rod and turn on the dryer.. they hang in the middle and do not pound around.
Cheap and easy.
Some dryers have a rack.. my dryers never did.. but would not be hard to make one with peg board hooks and some abstract thinking.
Good idea. might want to be careful with electric dryers. The heating coil MIGHT be close enough to the inlet grate that the welding rod could short out to the grate (ground).
My electric dryer has two grates, an innie and an outie. I'l try it in the outlet air grate. thanks.
ps 10 years ago I bought a boot dryer, PEET. expensive piece of plastic, but works great. Not a lot of heat to ruin leather boots. It makes all my hunting trips. I dry my boots every overnight, even when they don't feel wet. Makes the boot much more thermally insulating. And with 20 oF and 5 inches of new snow....my feet feel great (aka toastie) as I walk out the door in the morning.
Robert, great idea; those small fans are great. I've bought dozens of them. For computer replacement, and for cooling. Got 3 on a small board that cools my barrel at range and PD hunting (also is a small compressor with tube down the barrel.
Made in China with everything else, but great product for the unbelievable price. Sure better than throwing away a computer.
I like the 110 volt as I have AC in camp, so it doesn't drain car batteries. For PD hunting I have a small 12 volt motorcycle battery.
