well it's done and sorta cute in a clumsy way: got my spud peeler built and it rattles around amd rotates a plastic bucket and flops the potatoes over, and the outsides get wet and mooshy but still have peels! so i've come to realize i've been too nice to them, abrasion is the key requirement. think i'll take a pailful along to the car wash and spend $1.50 on my next theory :)

I spose this means...    Posted 02-18-2004 at 09:04:08       [Reply]  [No Email]

What you need is more horsepower and a larger drum. Run a sawmill belt about 30 feet long off the wheel of your tractor to a pulley bolted on to your great big ole drum with a whole bunch of pimples created by banging it with the pointed end of a welder's slag hammer. Next you want to dump in your potatoes and clamp the lid down tight. After that you start your engine and set the throttle about half and kick her in gear and run like a scalded dawg. If nothing flies throught the air, you can check results after about 15 or 20 minutes.

Or, you could go over to West Nottingham Auction on Mondays and get yer fill of french Fried spuds at a reasonable price. They got a feller over thar that cranks them out by the bushel........

thank you for your application: however after careful consideration it was agreed that we're currently overstocked with absolute nutcases. hence we've taken the liberty of forwarding you suggestions to mr red green, who is the reigning creator of artistic mushroom clouds & blowing things up in the woods.

he can tentatively be reached here:
