I am getting ready to go over my older drum style feeder and I have never liked that plastic funnel that came with it.
it has pulled away from the sides of the drum despite the caulking that they used.
I know corn gets down in between the barrel and the funnel and gets trapped there.

Before I start using it again here shortly, I am thinking of buying a metal funnel and replacing it.
any suggestions or anyone know where I can find one in the Abilene area?

Find an All Seasons dealer and see if they have the metal funnels and if they don't they can order you one.

A quick repair would be to cover the caulked seam with aluminum tape. It is super sticky, and the metal forms to the surface. It is better for sealing than gray duct tape. The aluminum tape has a peel-off paper backing. Not permanent, but could get you a couple more years without spending much money.
