  1. First of all, you need to find accessible and suitable raw materials for pelletizing. The ideal materials for home pellets making are dead leaves, sawdust, straw or dry grass. It might be not easier for individuals to make wood pellets from materials such as wood chips, twigs or branches, since these large block materials need to be crushed by a crusher or hammer mill before pelleting.
  2. Adjust the water content of the raw materials. A sprinkling can will be helpful.
  3. Feed the materials into the homemade pellet mill. After squeezing through the holes on the pellet die, finished pellets will fall out of the pellet mill.
