home made corn cracker.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

here recently i've switched mt chickens over to cracked corn for the winter and i was wondering if anyone has ever heard of or made a home made corn cracker? I can buy whole corn from a local farmer for around $5 for 50 lbs but 50 lbs of cracked corn from tsc is around ten. If i could crack the corn myself i could get double for the same price. I have priced the store bought hand crank gristmills for around $195 and i'm not willing to pay that!!! any plans, suggestions, or links would be greatly appreciated.

Find an country auction that sells old stuff. We sell lots of that kind of stuff at ours. A good old corn grinder will run around $100 and up, but we sold one a few weeks ago that had all three burrs and only brought $35.00 because the stand was broken. It still worked and a good welder could have fixed the stand for a few bucks.
Just an idea.. idunno
