    You won't regret it- they work great. Check out Herrick Kimball's website for parts and plans.

    I will be getting the book soon, and hope to start rounding up things that I have to use, and buying the rest of the stuff. Sounds like a great winter project in the basement. Everyone says they work great and I've seen a few youtube videos that prove it. Making one of these should really reduce processing time. With what I was using, it took around 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per bird to pluck.

    I have a xtra bearing that somebody that is building a whizbang plucker might need. I will sell for $20.00 plus shipping. I used a smilary bearing on my plucker and I beleive that it is stronger then the plans call for. The plucker works very good .Email me at [email protected]
