Husking oats.

I'd like to be using a bit more oats in the bread I bake; only I prefer to mill my own grain. I have access to oats, only they're still in the husk.

Is there an easy way to husk oats before milling?

In support of the 2013 post by cjjjdeck above, grainmaker has come to the market with a dehuller attachment as an addition to their Model 99 Grain Maker Grain Mill (starting at $675) .  The attachment starts at $275.  

I have also found a pdf that shows how to put a rubber face on a steel bur of a Corona grain mill.

I am still looking for a reasonable (cheap) way to apply this concept to my WonderMill Jr..  A spare SS set of burs runs $50.  I am hoping I can get a bur before all the serious machine on the face goes into it and cut that price down significantly.  I would hate to have to go to e-bay to get a damaged Wonder Mill Jr just to get the steel plates?

Is there z 4 option out there that any one has found?

Thanks,

Jay
