Default Crushing Pellets

I've recently order a 10 lbs bag of Roudybush Mini Sized Pellets for my two cockatiels, but after trying out some of their Crumble sized pellets, I'm trying to find a way to make the mini pellets become smaller.

This is because the Crumble size really helped reduce the waste they were producing and they seem to like it better bite-size.

Anyone have any suggestions to making them smaller? I've tried putting it in a ziplock and beating it with a roller, but it didn't really work.

I have a mortar and pestle that I use, I pour a small amount of parakeet pellet into the base and tap at the pellets while stirring lightly, this cracks them approximately in half. I have to do this for my Charles who has an under-bite and can't pick up the full sized pellets and I find it works quite well.
