We constructed a cheap and simple, experimental pellet press of small capacity. It was simplyfield, made without a filling system, silo for raw material and cutting device for cutting the length of pellets. Pellets were made from spruce sawdust and planer shawings. Water and oil were added to the raw material. Density, bulk density, durability and mousture content of the manufactured pellets were measured. Density was above 1000 kg/m3, and bulk density 630 kg/m3. Durability of the manufactured pallets was lower than that of the tested commercial ones. The manufactured pellets had lower moisture content than the raw material used.
