I have these parts and hope to dry sawdust in there. oh yeah, no shortage of wet sawdust. Then once it's dry and hot, bam i can compress it into a log. Any suggestions? :)

DC I saw something the other day that reminded me of you. This older gent owns a sawmill he built himself and a few old homebuilt forklifts. I went down to see him about some rolloff containers for work. He had no lumber out to dry but i noticed he had lift trucks running to a kiln but every 15 minutes they were comming back out. He made a giant microwave type kiln from some large magnetrons he salvaged. He also dried some hickory for the local barbeque joints and some for some sort of pressing plant. He even showed me the spot in the creek he excavated the clay for his kiln bricks. I did see one driers he had that worked like you have drawn but it wasnt used much anymore.

Just a thought ,can you put fins or auger type system in your sawdust barrel to rotate the sawdust in one side and out the other when finished?

I have noticed when sand gets wet the brick layers will set a barrel on it side and build a fire in it andcover it with sand so they can dry it enough to mix the mortar. I thought this might give you an idea to work with
