Threshing wheat by hand can be a tedious and time consuming task so I was wondering if anybody here has ever tried using a marijuana "bud trimmer". http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l534/rebeldawg2/trimmer.jpg

Theres a hand crank on the top, and rubber blades inside. Here's a video demonstrating it's use


I'm wanting to use something like this to thresh wheat but I'm curious as to whether or not it would work as such before spending so much money on one. Has anybody here tried one of these for this purpose?

I use an apple chipper from an apple cider press. Check out happyvalleyranch.com Works good, but not perfect like a combine. Perfect moisture content and even sheaves are the keys.

I would think your bud trimmer might be a bit 'sticky' for the job. lulz.

That seems to work well on 'green' products.
I'm not certain it would work well for dried cereal.
I guess you could call it an "Alice B. Toklas Thresher"

Paul has a video of a cheap/home made thresher.
Electric drill, thread-all rod, chain, and a 5 gallon bucket.
Works well.
