I am looking to buy a dehumidification (DH) kiln unit, to dry 2-3,000 feet per charge. Any opinions on particular brands (Nyle, Ebac, Northland, etc.) would be appreciated. I will be providing my own chamber.
I like the idea of speeding things along with the DH, especially in the winter months. In another thread, someone said they had built a DH kiln with parts from a local hardware store. Have you heard anything about this?
Deciding what brand is somewhat like asking which is better, a Chevy pickup or Ford -- we all know a Ford is much better. Right?
When comparing, make sure you compare equal compressor sizes --horsepower, and not what the seller says the unit will dry. I could sell you a 3-hp unit that I claim will dry 10,000 BF -- it will, but very slowly, compared to a 10-hp unit.

If I were to build a 2,500 BF, DH kiln, where could I find the particulars about doing this?
Thanks. And by the way, Ford is better.
