Grinding Boards For A Pellet Stove?

Is there a cheap way of grinding up old boards so they will fit in a pellet stove to burn?

Would a wood chipper work?

Not something I would even consider doing as your pellet burning stove is created and designed to burn commercially prepared pellets and the money you think you are saving on pellets will mean nothing if you have a house fire or wreck your stove.

It wouldn't be worth the trouble--I think pellets are smoother and denser, and the board bits would probably burn up too quickly to be very efficient besides jamming the auger. Pea coal doesn't work either, totally rusts out pellet/corn stoves.

Yeah, this isnt a way to save $. Would probably just burn up your house/stove.

Sometimes you can get discounts if you buy a whole pallet of the pellets.

You can use a wood chipper to grind your wood into small chips. It doesn't cost much. A wood chipper looks like this: www.pellet-making.com/.../disc-chipper.html
