Default Clear Grain Mill

Ok, well not really but you can see the grain feeding on this one. The hopper base is polycarbonate sheet and it's set up for a removable water cooler bottle hopper.

Pretty cool. You'll have to take a video of it in action milling a grain bill for us. Also like the polyethylene edge liner.

Pretty cook, what mill is that? Is this something you are going to be selling? I am in the market for a mill.

Thanks,

I'm not going to be selling any mills like this anytime soon. Just a rebuild of my personal mill.

Neat, is that just plexiglass? If so, how thick if you don't mind me asking?

Nvm. Just watched the video. I need to do something different with mine, its currently attached to a price if particle board and the torque from my motor is sending it out of square every now and then.

If I didn't already have scraps, I probably would have gone with 3/8" thick. Anyone that wants a cheap source for polycarbonate sheet, check out freckleface.com. It's a gamble but I really like the cheap 10 pound variety pack of cutoffs for projects like this.

Ya the local tap plastics has a scraps per pound price at like a buck or so. I might try it.

That's pretty cool. What kind of sizes did you receive in a pack like that? Also, was shipping pretty reasonable?
