HE Hen pellet maker
« on: November 12, 2019, 01:33:43 PM »
Has anyone here have any experience with this pellet "maker"?? A whole lot of work, but I wonder about the average weight differential? They also sell lead shears, I assume for cutting lead wire to the correct length (weight)? Seems like a diversion when there is too much snow to go out to the permissions!

Here is the video in case you don't know what it is:

Too much work and time unless you have lots of time and you are right about the time.

Pass. Just get an NOE mold. Much quicker.

I have seen them before and it would be nice to have a alternate way to make pellets out side of my NOE molds.

Beautifully made pellets.  The machining that went into the Mould is amazing as well.

If i remember correctly it's made in China and is contraband.
$800 + shipping and "lubing" i have heard.

So only if you want to thump pellets really bad!
Maybe better of with half an hour of overtime (once in a while) to pay for a couple tins of readymade pellets.

Oh, and the video is gone.

Actually, you can buy it from the supplier in England. Those Brits are too particular!

I for one, would not spend the time to do all of the necessary "labour" to make them.

I seen a post recently on GTA that some gent is making some in the US and was talking like he wanted to make and sell some. Still only thing I would want it for is just a added way to make pellets but not my primary.
