    I was just wondering how everyone elses lower feeder screw or "auger" feeds.
    1. All flights are filled the same
    2. Some flights are filled more than others.

    Mine fills some flights more than others.

    I was thinking that most would do this. It's nothing more than a timing issue that could be solved.

    I have the same issue, pile of pellets on 1 revolution, 3 pellets on the next. My flame varies minute to minute from match size flame to licking the top of the box!

    Exactly same thing here. I'd like to be able to play with the eprom and see what could be done with this. I'm pretty sure tighter flights on the bottom would help too but then pellet size would play a factor.
