Do any make fine enough chips to make a fine powder out of ice?

Thanks

For the average person, probably not.

Chip size is determined by knife length, and some settings of the knive to the face plate on the chipper.

The fix would require more work that it would be worth.

My first thought is that the size of wood chips is vastly greatly than the size of snow flakes. So no.

But maybe the settings can be changed.

Yeah but not cold enough here, figured start with the ice at least it will stay for a few hours.

A guy I work with made a snow machine out of a pressure washer, air compressor, and some other stuff. It can be done.

You can but you have to carry the cubes in all the way to the knives.

Oh yeah, have your wife post pics afterwards.

A spray nozzle for a hose, a tank of liquid nitrogen, I think it can be done.

Fine mist, send it right over an open tank of liquid nitro.
