PEA SHELLERS

Pea and Bean Sheller Information Guide:

Q.  Do my peas and or beans have to be ripe?

A.  Peas or beans should be ripe ( as for hand shelling ) before they are ready for the machine shelling.  They should be fully developed and of sufficient size with the pea or edible portion about 1/4" or larger for best results.  Peas that are too green or that have been allowed to dry very hard will present a problem.

A.  MR. Peas Sheller is gentle as hand shelled but FAST!  EFFORTLESS! We believe that the Mr. Pea Sheller should accommodate your needs.

Q.  What beans shell the best with your pea Sheller's?

A. The Electric Pea Sheller / Bean Sheller by Lee Manufacturing is our newest intermediate size Sheller for all garden fresh peas or beans.  Dry beans such as black eye, Purple hull, small Crowder, Cream peas, English peas, and HARD TO SHELL lima and butter beans should be okay.  This is designed to eject beans from the shell.

TaMaCo Huller Explanations

DOORS:  Doors are the 4 individual removable screens that makes up the Drum or cylinder.

SHAKER: 
The shaker is the lower vibrating device that holds the Filter and the catch for separating the trash and hull chips from the peas or beans.

CATCH: 
The catch is the bottom of the two screens on the shaker.  This screen catches the peas and sends them to the receiving pan while allowing the smaller particle of trash and chips of hulls pass through to the trash pan.

FILTER: A filter is the top removable screen on the shaker system that peas or beans pass through trapping the larger particles of unwanted trash or chips of hulls.   

DOORS

DOOR SELECTIONS:  Some operators find that when exceptionally large peas are mixed with their standard size peas of the same variety, they can use three standard doors for this variety, and one larger size door to let these larger peas fall through with a minimum of trash.
     Doors sets "B", "C", "D" and "E" have external removable shields.  No external shields are necessary for "F" doors since these doors are used for shelling extremely large beans.

DOOR EXAMPLES:

"B" - For extra small peas (i.e., Lady Fingers, Turkey peas, etc.).
"C" - For small peas to standard size peas (i.e., Black-eyes, Cream, Conch peas, etc.).
"D" - For large peas (i.e. Purple hull, standard butterbeans, etc.).
"E" - For large beans (i.e. Large limas, colored and speckled, etc.).
"F" - For extra large beans (i.e. Ford Hooks, etc.).

FILTERS

FILTER SELECTIONS:  Selection of filter is important as they help keep the lager particles of trash out of the peas and beans that will pass through the filter screen.  Only one filter is necessary to match each of the drum doors sets you have chosen, but if the peas or beans you are shelling will pass through a smaller filter than the door selection, it would be advisable to use this filter instead.  Therefore, we suggest the purchase of an extra filter that is one size smaller than the smallest drum door set to give you a greater  variety of filtering while shelling.  "F" doors do not have external shields, so a shaker filter is not required when shelling with this set of doors.                                                                   

FILTER EXAMPLES:

"A" - For use with "B" Doors.
"B" - For use with "B" or "C" Doors.
"C" - For use with "C" or "D" Doors.
"D" - For use with "D" or "E" Doors.
"E" - For use with "E" Doors.

CATCH

CATCH SELECTIONS:  There are two size catches available for these hullers.  The "A" catch for use with most sizes peas and beans, such as Black-eye, Butterbean, Ford Hook, Etc., or the "AA" catch which is used only when the operator is shelling an extra small pea, such a  turkey pea, Lady Finger Pea, etc..  Operation of an "A" catch  with extra small peas would result in lost peas to the trash pan.                                                                 

CATCH EXAMPLES:
"A" - For use with "C", "D", "E", AND  "F" doors.
"AA" - For use with "B" doors only.

BESTSELLER: Taylor Pea Sheller aka the "Little Sheller"
BESTSELLER: Taylor Pea Sheller aka the "Little Sheller"

Taylor Pea Sheller aka the "Little Sheller"

Whether you're a small gardener or a professional grower, the famous "Little Sheller" or one of our commercial hullers, will take the work out of your pea and bean shelling. These machines are efficient, smooth running and easy to operate. Set up your farmstead pea shelling operation, call the neighbors to bring their peas and beans, and have a shelling party!! This is the pea and bean sheller to own for years and years of pea and bean shelling and huller quality performance. Many people are still using their Taylor Little Shellers after 20 years and still going strong.

The "Little Sheller" from Taylor is excellent for shelling black-eyed peas, crowders, lady fingers, white acres, English peas, and many others as stated by our customers.  It will also shell mature butterbeans.  On average, the "Little Sheller" will shell peas the size of black-eyes in 12 to 15 minutes per bushel; smaller peas, the size of lady fingers, in 15 to 20 minutes per bushel.  It is very simple to operate--place the peas or beans in the top tray and hand feed to the rollers, and the shelled pears are dropped into the plastic tray.  The hulls are discharged at the front of the machine.  Slight adjustments to the rollers allow you to shell large or small peas.  This durable machine has become a favorite for light commercial use as well as at home.  Many of the original machines sold in 1959 are still in use today!

The Little Sheller Operation Instructions

The Little Sheller is simple to operate.  You will ordinarily have no problem shelling peas or beans right out of the field.  However, if you should encounter some difficulty, it may be necessary to loose the pith around the pea or bean before shelling.  This can be accomplished by (1) picking peas or beans one day and shelling the next day.  (2) When shelling on the same day they are picked, soak a few minutes in water before shelling.  (3)  When shelling many hampers in succession, wet your peas or beans down in hampers and allow to sit a few minutes, then start shelling.  It is not necessary to dry peas before shelling, as they shell extremely well when wet.  (4) If you find it necessary to store your peas in a cooler before shelling, allow them to return to room temperature or, to speed up loosening the pith, use one of the above methods.

Adjustment of rollers may be required when different size peas or beans are to be shelled.  There is no particular setting of rollers as this is done by operator for each type or size of pea or bean shelled.  We suggest using the following procedure to adjust the rollers:

Suggested adjustment of rollers:
  1. Remove the front hair guard to see the rollers and the light clearance between them.
  2. Using a 7/16" wrench, loosen the jam nut and screw (A&B) on top of the cross bar above both top roller bearings.  Loosen the wing nuts on front of the top bearings and slide bars.
  3. Facing the machine, jam screw down until it touches the top of the bearing block.
  4. On the right, the gears side, lower the top roller down so No light is showing between rollers on that side.  Turn jam bolt down until it touches the top of that bearing block.
  5. Tighten the wing nuts on front of both bearings.  Now shell a few peas of beans at different spots to determine the right amount of gap.  Then adjust the entire roller to that point of clear light.  Too much gap or clearance mashes peas.
  6. The jam screw and nut, (A) & (B) are put on the machines to keep the roller bearing from working up when shelling is done for a great length of time on the same setting.  The bottom roller should clear the breast pan wiper 1/32" to 1/16" at all times.  Bolts on these bearings should be kept tight.  Replace front roller or hair guard.  Adjust the inside guard down properly.
Feeding: In feeding the peas into the machine, spread your hands flat over the peas and with the side of your hand gently push them under the finger guard to the rollers several at the time, tip or bud end first.  Do not force fingers under roller guards.  Occasionally, switch off sheller and wipe off the pith which collects on the wiper below the bottom roller; this keeps the bottom roller from becoming too slick to twist the peas easily.  This residue is NOT usually mashed peas, but the pithy part of the hulls; occasionally there may be black streaks which are caused by the coloring in the neoprene rollers, this substance is non-toxic, but should be removed while moist.
Safety guards: Belt and roller guards should be used on all models at all times.  For your safety, keep fingers from under roller guards while machine is running.  Adjust your inside roller guard down properly allowing only clearance for size of peas shelled.
Bearings: Roller shaft bearings should be oiled with light mineral oil once or twice a day if in constant use.  These bearings are specially designed long life bearings.  We suggest after clean-up that you re-oil these bearings and run the machine a few seconds to prevent rusting of your roller shaft.
Belt adjustment: Belt should be kept fairly loose on the motor pulley.  Too tight an adjustment puts excess wear your roller and motor bearings.
Motor: The Motor is equipped with an approved ground cord.  Please connect the ground properly to meet your local wiring code.  When cleaning machine, do not allow water to get in motor.  Clean with light weight approximately twice each season.
Storing of Machine: Be sure after cleaning and washing your "Little Sheller" to re-oil all shaft bearings, gears and motor.  Follow other maintenance suggestions above.

Mr. Pea Sheller Operating instructions.

Oil bearing surfaces and gears with light oil before using.  MR. Pea Sheller does a good job shelling peas or beans with out special attachments or adjustments. 

Wash produce first and leave hulls slightly wet.  Produce should be fed through the opening.  Do not feed vines or other foreign objects through rollers.  Butter beans should be fed through at an angle with thick vine end feeding through first.  Most peas can be fed straight through rollers.  In all cases the peas or beans should be RIPE before they are ready for the machine shelling.  They should be fully developed and of sufficient size with the pea or edible portion about 1/4" or larger for best results.  Peas that are too green or that have been allowed to dry very hard will present a problem.  Usually vine ripe produce can be shelled immediately after gathering. 

When peas are ready for machine shelling, you will be amazed at what MR. Peas Sheller can do!

The Best Pea and Bean Shelling Ideas We Know

Beans and peas that just will not shell without mashing probably have either very tough pods due to growing conditions, or may be too green or too dry.  These may be shelled very easily by using the following method:

The peas or beans, in the pod, are blanched in boiling water from one to four minutes.  Cool quickly in cold water.  Now feed them through your Mr. Pea Sheller's special rollers.  The results will please you.

This process makes the pods or hulls tender enough that even the thin skin around the peas or beans are not damaged, and you can shell them very quickly.

One minute blanching will usually soften the toughest of pods so that shelling is now easy.  If you are preparing the produce for your freezer, then blanch the peas or beans four minutes and freeze after shelling.

MR. Pea Sheller does an excellent job shelling Black eye, Purple Hulls, Cream Peas as well as Butter Beans.  The produce MUST BE RIPE!  If too green and tough for your hands to shell then they are not ready for the machine.  This small, efficient and inexpensive pea and bean Sheller for the home use is designed for long life.  Saves hours of tedious work.  Avoid getting foreign objects in the peas.  Peas roll out of trough into your pie pan or shallow pan.  The picture may make the top appear as if it is made of clear Plexiglas or plastic.  It is not.  It is only a reflection of the bright plated steel construction. 

The special separated roller design weighs approx 1-1/4 Lbs.  size 4" x 8" x 8".  No adjustments to make.  Tough nylon bearings.  Upper shaft fits most 100 watt hand mixers.  If using a heavy drill-motor, pack some support under it, such as folded towels.  Also a hand crank is available for manual shelling.  Do not leave hand crank on the machine if you are shelling electrically.  Remove handle for your safety.  We urge you to use your hand mixer or drill as most users do.  This makes your job easier and effortless.  The upper shaft should always turn in a clock wise direction, so use the appropriate hole in your mixer when attaching it to the shaft.

Operating Instructions for the Electric Mr. Pea Sheller

Peas or beans should be ripe ( as for hand shelling ) before they are ready for the machine shelling.  They should be fully developed and of sufficient size with the pea or edible portion about 1/4" or larger for best results.  Peas that are too green or that have been allowed to dry very hard will present a problem.

Peas that have been gathered green and out in the refrigerator will be a problem unless allowed to come to room temperature and dry out a little.

Avoid feeding vines or other foreign objects through rollers.  If motor fails, to start when cord is plugged in, give large pulley a gentle push in clockwise direction, and be careful!

To clean machine unplug electrical cord and wash off rollers and tray.

To lubricate the machine, unplug the electrical cord.  Place a few drops of oil over the two screws holding the steel bearing support frames into place.  Tilt machine and turn pulley by hand to allow oil to reach all brass bearing surfaces.  Apply light grease to gears occasionally.

Apply a few drops of oil in each of the two holes in the motor about twice a year.

Belt should be loose, do not tighten the belt or use another belt other than that provided with your sheller.

The motor is thermally protected and will shut off in case of over heating.  Should this happen, disconnect cord and allow motor to cool.  Automatic reset in motor will let it start again when it is cool.  Do not substitute a heavier duty motor for the one provided. 

The Best Pea and Bean Shelling Ideas We Know

Beans and peas that just will not shell without mashing probably have either very tough pods due to growing conditions, or may be too green or too dry.  These may be shelled very easily by using the following method:

The peas or beans, in the pod, are blanched in boiling water from one to four minutes.  Cool quickly in cold water.  Now feed them through your MR.
Pea Sheller's special rollers.  The results will please you.

This process makes the pods or hulls tender enough that even the thin skin around the peas or beans are not damaged, and you can shell them very quickly.

One minute blanching will usually soften the toughest of pods so that shelling is now easy.  If you are preparing the produce for your freezer, then blanch the peas or beans four minutes and freeze after shelling.

Warning:

1:  Avoid getting your fingers too close to rollers.

2:  Do not unplug cord if your hands are wet.  Let the machine keep on running until your hands are dried.  Likewise, should the motor stall due to too many peas or beans being fed through at once, it will not hurt the motor to stay on while you dry your hands.

3:  Always store in a dry place and treat as any other electrical appliance.

"I bought two industrial pressure canners for my business.  Naturally, I looked for the best possible price, both locally and on the net.  I saved $75 by going with Homestead Harvest.  What is even better is they were shipped almost immediately and I got them a few days later, quicker than if I had ordered them from the local kitchen store.

I would do business with Homestead Harvest again, no doubt about it."

"We recently purchased the cider press for our elementary school.  The cost of going on class trips has significantly increased over the years.  But as teachers, we still wanted to provide the learning experience to our young kindergartners and 1st grades.

The press was easy to put together and making the apple cider brought great joy and excitement to the children.  It was a great learning experience!  We are looking forward to many years of making cider with this great press!"

"After years of use my Canner finally gave out and developed a crack in the aluminum pot. ( It was over 35 years old). After checking numerous web sites I found yours and surprisingly your price for the American 921 canner was the lowest of all places I had searched, including Ebay.  It arrived undamaged and in a very timely manner.
I greased up the seals and "seasoned" it with heat and vegetable oil. I've found that this takes care of some of the discoloration from boiling water.

So far I have used it to can my first 4 bushels of tomatoes, 30 quarts of beets, 7 quarts of string beans and this weekend I'll be putting up around 20 quarts of Pasta sauce. The canner has performed flawlessly and your helpful hints on your website have been appreciated."
