  1. Thanks Rob! On the way home last night I got a 10 pound box of pellets and have started on one of these for a friend. Very timely, and I’m happy to be able to help out in some small way.

That way there are no stray pellets to get everywhere and all you have to do is wash it and the bags will disappear. They are made of PVA, polyvinyl acrylate. It will just wash away. The bags are relatively inexpensive. I’m going to give it a try….
