Homemade Pecan Sheller
Just thought you would like to see a pecan sheller I made in my shop. It has a 1/8-hp. electric motor on each side. The inside breaker plate runs counter clock wise at 94 rpm's. The outside tank, with the slats, runs 12 to 14 rpm's. I can shell a peck of nuts in anywhere from 5 to 9 min., depending on the thickness of the shell. It works great. I have shelled 80 bu. in 4 weeks. About 90 percent of the nuts come out in halves. I am applying for a patent on this great new design. (Hoover A. Lingle, 1022 S.
