If anybody had input on how that could be done it would be appreciated.
Thats a great idea. I have no idea how to make it adjustable but I dont see why the different sized rollers wouldn't work

I believe it will. I can't find small enough bearings for a reasonable price shipped. I searched high and low for a good all around gap and .030 seems to be a good one. Cold roll is fairly cheap for the rollers. I could have cut cost by just using 1/8" plate for the sides and use the 1/2" for just the axle bearing encasement. SWMBO is happy I didn't drop $150 on a mill. Now I just need to make a mash tun out of a cooler. Probably gonna go square cooler for that just for the fact that they're bigger and cheaper than 10gal round ones.

Good luck with your mill search.

Thanks and good luck to you too. Just a bit of advice, when building the manifold for you MLT, get PVC cutters to make your segments, NOT a hacksaw. haha

I might have missed the recomendation and if I did I appologize. Have you considered a Corona Grain Mill? I bought one off of Ebay brand new and shipped for 29 bucks. It is handle operated and can be modified for a motor or drill power. There are several brewers out there who have had them for years and are very happy with their results. They have made several buckets and feeders from plastic and different materials to hold uncrushed and crushed grain for way cheap too. Look at the My Ugly Corona Mill thread and see if that wont help you get going till a truly dedicated crusher comes along at a good price. Never seems to happen any other way, when you dont need something as bad anymore a bunch will come up for a killer price. Hope this helps ya.
Bob

If your Corona mill destroys the hulls you don't have it properly adjusted. I bought my Corona for $30 shipped, read about others using them and my crush is perfect throughout.

It would be nice to hook a drill up to it but I don't mind the hand crank for now. I made a hopper out of a plastic LME container, works great.

I wasn't aware that corona mills are adjustable. I might be getting a BC but if the deal falls through then I'll look into them a little more. Thanks for all of the info
