Has anybody out there got any information about where to obtain or make a decent Burley Mincer?
By decent I mean, something that I can feed whole skippies and fish frames complete with heads into!
Even if some kiwi inginuity has to be put into adapting something I will give it a go.  Not really interested in the small mincers you can buy, wanting something with some Tim the Toolman grunt!!!
Can anyone point me in the right direction here... maybe some free burley coming your way if I can get this sorted!

Hi 3410

We have mincers in the company I work for, but they might be too big for you. And to build one, that could cost you a fortune. Allone the vital parts like the orga, plates and the knife are very expensive. You could try and contact the food ( meat) industry, they might have an old machine standing arround, or try any auctions and so on. We scrapped one nice machine about two years ago, suitable for a (very) small business.

Thanks for the reply's guys...
I have heard of people using insinkerators, but I imagine it wouldn't fit a whole fish body without cutting it up first?

Go to the hirepool and get a small branch chipper.It will do skippies no problem,just fire it up throw the skippie in and stand back...Nah seriously i won a  mince last year and gave it to a guy who motorized it and fitted a gearbox.It has done the rounds in our neighbourhood over the last year and has consumed many skippies.The only set back is you have to defrost them...you need some seriouse torque to do kahawhai tho...
Good luck 3410
 
PS Its cheaper to buy burley,get a few blokes together to mince burley and youl go thru heaps of beer....

Hi I have a berley machine it uses a no.32 mincer like the one in the picture above which you can buy from fishing shops etc

Its powered by an electric motor with a reduction box

There are quite a few on trademe now and again

Skippies are no problem but if you do a lot of kys the skin clogs it up and you need to clean it out

Awsom set up i guees the most expensive part should you use it tho would be the petrol motor,(if you dont allready have one, but looking at that it looks like it would 'nt be that hard to make, ( find  some 1.5mm plate and whers me welder lol )

I heard of a guy using an old petrol lawnmower he had modified.......never saw it buy sure you could do something with one,  cut a hole in the deck add a funnel and have a mulching shield inside for the really big stuff,  Im currently modifying a large manual mincer to run a bendix electric motor and reduction gear, otherwise might try the lawnmower idea Thumbs%20Up

Best one i have seen has just been made by a mate of mine. He has mounted a mower engine on a ply base with a skippy sized chute in the top. He found a straight blade and ground the edges so that they push the skippy down into and thorough a piece of heavy guage mesh that is mounted close to the blade. In prototype stages but has consumed semi frozen skippy no problem at all. He just has to make a base to catch the munched up bits now. All up probably only cost him $120.00

righthook,
 
i thought i had done this last week but must have stuffed it up???!!!
 
i haven't forgotten about the photos but the mincer is going through a development process.
i.e. he broke it!!
 
Motor #1 did not hack the pace so on went a 5hp version. (MORE POWER!!!) This however is still not enough grunt if you want to munch up 6kg snapper frames for shark burley...........
 
Motor #2 down the tubes after breaking the starter bit through stalling it too many times. This would have been fine for skippies and mackeral though - i think they are a bit softer than snapper heads.
 
he is now thinking about an electric motor off of his buzzer or similar......scarey stuff but i will keep you updated to progress or not...!!

I've made a burley mincer. 8horse motor, down through a six to one, then two to one, doing about 200 rpm at the drum. Makes about 20KG in 10 minutes. You'll lose your fingers if you drop them in. It works well. I can send you pictures if you like.
