Homemade threshing machine! Cool!
Today Jerry, our friend and fellow Self Reliant Community member brought over a threshing machine that he designed and built using a ceiling fan, some rubber stall mats and a 50 gallon plastic drum. The grain we have growing isn’t really dry enough yet, but we just had to try it out and it works great! Gone are the days of beating grain on a tarp on the ground. And this machine is amazingly quiet.
The next invention Jerry plans on making is a winnower/seed cleaner which he will make from a converted gas clothes dryer.
