Step 3: Making the machine (Stator)

I have not spent much time going over the hardware for the project. The PDFs can be downloaded herehere. You will see that the hardware I use has only been slightly modified to fit the measurements of this machine.

1. Move the blue board and forms to a level surface. You'll need somewhere that you won't mind getting a little concrete and water on. I used the driveway.
2. Mix the concrete. A helper is always nice!
3. Weigh down the outer stator form and start filling it up. Tap the sides as you go to settle the concrete and move any air bubbles to the surface.
4. After the form has been filled, gently push the two remaining bolts into the concrete opposite of each other.
is't this like<sub> a de-sheller?</sub><br/>
I am curious as to how you constructed the metering plates.. I don't find much on the original site and no mention at all on yours. Thanks for sharing!
I personally don't use one on my sheller. I did round the rotor at the top with cement so the nuts will fall into the sheller. I will be using a hopper and auger setup to feed mine so a metering plate is not needed.
