Getting hand drawings into CAD

Topic Type: 
Question

The oat huller tool wiki could benefit from the scanned in engineering drawings being transfered to CAD files. Any one out there know someone learning CAD that is looking for a project? This would reduce the burden for the next to build.

I would recommend taking the design documents to a local fabrication shop to get a quote. For barley you will want the hammer design modification for sure (rather than the impact huller design which is fine for oats etc.). The second stage of winnowing the hulls and cleaning the seed is also important to consider. A clipper seed cleaner properly set up can get you most of the way there. I expect it could all be built for less than $2000. If a fabricator gets setup to do a small production run of kits, the cost could be substantially less. If you do build a version, please post your results and costs!
