    If it was an old processor that you really didn't care about...then go for it...see what happens....BUT...if it's something you want to use for food processing.. then I would make sure I had a spare blade for it before I tried the experiment...because I don't think the blade would be good for anything else...[​IMG]

    guess it all depends on the size of the chips, and if your food processor has metal gears and such... i really dont see why you couldnt seeing as we grind ice and coffee beans that are hard

    I would venture to guess that it will damage the blades pretty bad. How ever if you go to a second hand store you may find one pretty cheap

    WHy would you want to do this? Won't sawdust burn up faster than chips or chunks?

    on my smoker--
    the store bought sawdust smolders very easily

    the first 2 hrs--
    when smoking my home made sausage...
    the heat is under 175 f[​IMG]

    I would think that the chips are going to get stuck to the blade and bind it to the sides stalling the motor. unless it has alot of power. If you try it let us know how it works for ya.
