Need plans for a pea sheller

YES,there does exist still a pea & bean sheller replacement that can be used if you can locate one. I have seen these used by many country folk as well as myself. IF you can locate an older washing machine that has a alothes wringer head attachment mounted above the washer tob,mosthad two rubber coated rollersthat were somewhat adjustable worked great as a pea & bean shellerby simply feeding them thru the rollers and catching the peas in a shallow pan underneath.

It has been over twenty years since I was involved in harvesting peas for a food processor. The pea combine, also used for lima beans, consisted of a huge barrel that had an inner liner of screens. The vines tumbled inside and the screens literally wore away the pods and the peas fell through the screens which were then conveyed into a hopper. And the vines were discharged out the rear. Those viners moved so slow you almost had to drive a stake to see them move-about three acres per day. The viners were run in gangs in order to get a load of peas off to the processor before they spoiled. (The peas in the viner hopper contained some pods and juice that could sour rather quickly on a hot day.)I suspect the equipment today has been much improved. However, I can't imagine a small mechanical sheller that would be practical for the home gardener.

the ones around here are homemade. just the pods are placed in the machine. i think they consist of a screened drum with an inner "dasher" made of a shaft with paddles. all the ones around here are kinda cobbbled up from parts and plywood. i was looking for a more "engineered" design with the proper rpm's' diameter drums, etc.

Plans for pea/bean sheller, well engineered to determine speed, drum size, amount to load per shelling, approximate time to run each shelling, quality of shelling,and quality drawings.
