The chute was made out of tongue and groove one inch thick boards. They were only 2.5 inches wide and so incredibly old. All of the one inch board cracked and splintered every time we tried to salvage it. We finally gave up and it went much faster.
I had to go in and totally tighten and adjust the intersection of two doors. Both doors did not operate well, causing me to take the loose nails out of the hinges and reinstall them with screws. I had to use lots of WD-40 to loosen up the hinges and clips to hold the doors closed. One support had shrunk by 1.25 inches so I had to add a spacer. I put screws in everywhere to tighten the whole thing. It worked very well. I just need to add a latch to keep the granary door closed. Most likely I will use one of the horseshoe chains I had made to keep the door shut.
