The Feather Tornado

Postby LongHammer » Mon Jan 29, 2018 4:36 pm

So using the power of the Internet at the beginning of waterfowl season we set out to make a duck plucker. We tried a few different ways from an old bench grinder to a cordless drill. Settled on a half inch 2 speed drill with an inverter running off the BMW. The pucker is a 4 inch pvc cap with rubber bungee finger and some all thread for a shaft.

So no more mumbling neighbors complaining about feathers everywhere we can pluck right when we get back to the truck!
It works it will pluck the heck out of a duck. Remove unwanted skin from fingers and hands. Rip a teal out of your hand and launch it into your chest at 20mph. It will flat out skin a wigeon. All the while engulfing you and your truck in a 30ft cloud of feathers and down. Any time and effort saved was spent just getting the down out of my beard not to mention the cracked open window so I wouldn't lock myself out of my car. The rooster tail of what I will just call duck juice really helped the feathers stick to my face and truck. So I have one duck pucker to give away preferably to someone I don't like. Just pick up the shipping. Does not include the drill.

Nice to have a description of how it works before using it. Sounds like the real deal.

What I started doing was plucking directly into the shop vac.

Looking at it I think if I shorten the fingers it might tame that wild beast. I'll try 1 inch long. Now I just need something with feathers. I got 15 days to quail hunt or have Otto snatch a few stray yard birds down in guadalupe.

I've got a 1/2 inch Milwaukee that'll grind anything down to the bone in no time. Also an old antique something that'll flip an elephant. Amazing what they used to build...!

LH, I laughed out loud! Thanks for that. My pastor raises about 75 chickens a year. Built a plucker like this one and it works great. Ducks would have alot tighter feathers and down, but I assume it would still work. Worth a look perhaps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMydVdwmuws

Wow! That's a real bird plucker. Makes me sick to think of all the birds I've plucked by hand.
