Hi Nancy:
             While at the UCBG Berkeley it was amazing seeing a seed 
cleaning machine they have. It is like a glass candelabra of some sort and 
through which a powerful air current flows upwards dragging the seed to one 
branch and leaving the chaff in another. It cleaned lots of seeds in a few 
seconds. Send a message to Holly Forbes and I am sure she will give you the 
name, brand and details.Good luck
