  • What Tool Do You Use to Grind Pellets

    Hi

    I use ground pellet as a method mix, as a slop, as a base for paste and as a groundbait mix for skimmers.

    For years I used an old liquidiser with a coffee grinder attachment to grind the pellets, but recently it fell to bits.

    I went out and bought a self powered coffee grinder and burnt out the motor after about 10 minutes pellet grinding.

    I have tried the mill attachment on the kitchen blender and that struggles.

    Does anyone on here grind their own pellets and if so what appliance / tool do you use.

    My bucket of ground pellet is getting low, so can someone help please.

    KORDA KRUSHA BOILIE/PELLET/BAIT CHOPPER CRUSHER LARGE on eBay (end time 20-Oct-09 22:58:01 BST) expensive for what they are,and its hand grinding but they do work well.
    Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

          i got a blender from tesco for about £6. works a treat. found out that best way is to just do abit instead of putting a shedload in. also very easy to flavour or colour

            Recently had the same problem, bought a new coffee grinder and destroyed it on 1st use. Then bought a Tesco value blender for £4.25 and this works fine, use a tall narrow tub to grind them in though.

                  ASDA Smart Price blender for under ten quid. Probably the same machine as the Tesco Value.

                  Don't put too much in at a time and use the pulse setting which agitates your pellets and keeps them moving allowing the metal cutting tool to do it's just. Cheap they might be, but they are much more robust than the expensive one I busted

                  Also works well on fining down your Vitalin mix.

                    I've just got one from Sainsbury's for about the same price and followed your advice and it's worked a treat. Thanks a lot this should save a load of time and a fair bit of money to.
