    I and probably many others are at a loss for bulk cleaning techniques for cleaning volumes of our beans, grains, squash seeds etc. Can we get a bunch of experts contributing their tips, tricks, and wisdom?  Once we have a lot of information in one place, maybe I can make a wiki out of it.

Plant seeds needing efficient threshing/hulling:
Sunflower
Bean
Buckwheat
Oats
Wheat
Grains in general
Corn
Amaranth
Squash
Sorghum
Chestnut
Acorn
Walnut
Hazelnut
Beech
Techniques for other edible seeds are welcome.

For beans I like to put the dry beans in the hull inside a chicken food bag and stomp on them.  Most pop open and release the beans.  I aim for 90% or better of the beans leaving the pods.  I don't worry about the final 10% because that selectively breeds my bean population into something that threshes easier (I think)
 
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
