The Design and Construction of a Melon Shelling

2019-7-1  The aim of this work is to design a melon shelling machine which can effectively shell almost all the species of melon found in Nigeria, with little or no technical skill required for its operation and at a cheap affordable price. This research therefore seeks to offer assistance to the teaming population of local melon farmers or traders and medium scale industries involved in the melon business in their quest for a convenient, available and easy method of shelling their melon which in most cases is still being done manually due to either very high cost or unavailability of shelling machines.
