    I've searched and searched and cannot find the plans for the plucker that involves the drill, 5 gal. bucket and some rubber tubing.

    Can someone point me in the right direction? [​IMG]

    No, but thanks! [​IMG] The pics I saw some while back were of a 5 gal. bucket with small pvc or rubber tubing placed through holes that had been drilled in the walls of the bucket. A hand drill had been attached to the bottom of the bucket and was then clamped to a picnic table or some such.

    I think they said they had very little money in the project and that it did a great job. I would so like to see the pics again and maybe the plans for it all before I butcher 20 meaties next weekend! [​IMG]

    it wasn't a bucket, it was a drill clamped to a table with a PVC end cap and black rubber stretch cords stuck into the cap. Take a PVC end cap for a 3" PVC pipe, drill holes around the edge, cut the cord into 3" pieces and stick them into the holes, run a bolt thru the cap and chuck it into the drill.

    There is a five part series on YouTube (of which I think the link is to part 4). It's not the one I was hunting for, but it seems to be what people are looking for.
