Hulling Oats on a small scale

Does anyone here have any experience in hulling oats by hand? I have a small crop and I hear that hulling them usually requires equipment. Does anyone know a manual method? Thank you.

In the past I planted what was called cereal oats, or naked oats, that are hulless,
it was the easiest way I could find to "hull" them.

I saw one time an attachment, that would fit in a hand grinder,  and they were a thick rubber washer instead of burr plates and the rotation was said to dehull them, this was back in 99 when I saw this. I will do a little looking and see what I can find if I find some thing I will repost, it.

Thanks for the link, I will def check it out. The crazy thing is I just found that mill from Lehmans yesterday and had a similar idea. I didn’t even see that article, I ended up emailing them the question….I wonder if they just put that up since I asked?
