I don't even have a pellet stove, currently just use a wood furnace. I am looking at adding a pellet stove so the misses can have an easier time heating the homestead when I am gone. (I sometimes travel for a few days to a week at a time for my job).

While looking into pellet stoves I saw they sell pellet mills on ebay. Some appeat to be reasonbly priced. Just wondering if anyone had any experiance with these?

Have been discussed many times on this forum....too labor & time intensive for the small amount of pellets they put out. Don't believe the 330 Lb/hr figure they quote......will never happen with something that small.

Thanks, I was thinking that otherwise more people would have them.
