Homemade Corn / Pellet Fuel Cleaner

This is my homemade corn and pellet fuel cleaner. It consists of a bowel (Walmart), 45 degree 2-inch diameter PVC elbow, 2-inch Y for 3-inch PVC pipe, short lengths of 2- and 3-inch PVC pipe (all from Lowes), and bamboo skewers (dowels will work also). Stand made from project leftovers. Some assembly required (LOL) I typically use hot glue…just in case I want to take it apart! Sorry for the noisy shop vac!

    When are you going to post your present design? I’m trying to talk my husband into making us one, and would like him to see your new design first. I thought your video was very well done. Thanks!

  4. Kntryhart says:

    Thanks. Actually, I have made several different designs since this one. My present design works much quicker than this and requires less effort. I guess I need to post that one.

    Great design. As usual, I am totally amazed by the designs that people in our country come up with.

    Wood Pellets contain “fines”…something akin to sawdust. I have seen augers jammed as a result of fines.
    Corn can have all type of stuff in in. I screened out a clump of concrete.
    Yes, it does take a little time, but it is a lot cheaper than buying a new auger! Have fun!
