Dear Jim,
                    I believe that commercially vibrating tables are 
used very effectively. The angle of the table is varied and the rate and 
magnitude of the vibrations are controlled. Various fabrics are used to 
adjust the grab on the chaff as opposed to the seed. They seem very 
effective in the seed industry and I wonder if one could be constructed 
fairly simply using some device such as a hammer drill of other hand 
tool with a reciprocating action.
Regards
Don Journet
