Very nice. I like the way you routed the ring to allow it to securely nest on the bucket. Oh, and the slide out panel to allow easy access to the gap for adjusting is really nice.
Here is a crappy pic of mine with a hopper I made from sheet metal that will hold more than 35# of grain.
I used melamine and used eye bolts for the gap locking bolts (your knob bolts are a nice addition!)
