This web site was created to help people to grow and process rice. Removing the husk from rice is very difficult without a rice de-huller. Many, many hours of work and trying lots of different materials were needed before our team created usable designs for hand and bike powered rice hullers using inexpensive parts. We could not find a good rice huller for less than $2,000 (shipping not included) which is too much money for those growing less than 100 pounds of rice per year. Our current designs are based on the counter rotating pinch roller concept described in detail below. We are also exploring designs for human powered impact (centrifugal) hullers.
Interestingly, we've received inquiries from around the world (India, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Brazil, Africa, USA, Canada and more) which indicate to us there is a world wide need for very low volume rice hullers. All are welcome to use these designs to make a rice huller for themselves or manufacture for sale. There is a page dedicated to a homemade impact de-huller which we suggest be the first choice because once built no adjustments are needed. We are no longer trying to make improvements to the design.
