They can only see about 18" in front of their noses.  The best way to kill one is shoting through the heart/lung area.  A head shot will almost always lead to them spraying.
I usually put them down with an injection of acetone into the heart.

I was talking about the hammer mill.   I will give him a call and see where he has it stored.

Yes, it is a little bit wired for me to reply a post years ago however as a worker in a pellet mill manufacturing factory, I'd  like to share information about pellet mills.  :)
Here is the website of the reputable Chinese pellet mill manufacturer,http://www.biofuelmachines.com/Small-Pellet-Mill.html

Any of you studs made your own wood pelletizer. Their a simple design would just need to be made heavy duty. I'am told that in farm country feed pelletizers are common would they be built heavy enough.?? Thanks Frank C.

 I've done a lot of research. Biggest thing is getting the holes in the plate right. Second is getting the moisture % absolutely correct.

 We are about to have tons of limbs and tops from our plantation thinning. I was wanting to use pellets to run a gasifier for the 20HP Honda that will not run on high $$$ gasoline, anymore. We have a species of tree that auto sheds limbs. It is light weight and dries quickly. Mixing that with wetter stuff could be done to keep moisture % at correct levels ??

 Whatcha thinking, Frank ?

Hal, just thinking out loud I'am up to my arse with sawdust just dumping it now. I think you right about the fussiness of the moisture. Also hear the bonding agents that should be added are costly. Probably be better off fishing or playing with the cat, don't need the money. Frank C.

 Bonding agents are not necessarily needed. The perforated plate needs to be brought up to temperature, then, the pressing of the wood heats the pellets and the steam generated from the pressing is what releases the lignum in the wood and makes the binder. That's mainly why moisture is somewhat critical.

 I was thinking about commercial meat grinder plate for the pellet plate. Drilling all the holes twice in a blank plate can get old, depending on size of the mill.

After the great oil shortage the gov. was giving out money like jelly beans to anyone with alternate energy ideas. I went west to the hills of Ma. to see a pellet making operation. I could not see into the machine but it looked like an old make and brake engine with a hopper and small piston the size of a pellet. It worked like a hay baler kept compressing the material ahead of the piston. I left unimpressed and they left too when the grants dried up. Frank C.
