If you can PULVERIZE then to a powder, as fine as flour, they work.

There is this pile of oyster shells that is over 50 feet high by 100 feet long...in a town near me.

I've been trying to think of ways to crush the living hell out of them for 2 years now.

It's nice living near such finds.

I was thinking that I might try crushing them with a air impact gun...with a special tool we used to use on boilers. :wink:

You'll think of something.

:smile:

Man, it's to bad you don't know someone with a little 5 or 6 hp Centrifugal IMPACT MILL. Little bastard would eat that big pile of oyster shell up faster than you could feed it & spit out tons of flour powder, faster than you could bag it.

I'll take a picture of the Oyster Shell pile next time I drive through. :smile:

It's like a dune of Oyster Shells.
