I do have some extra pulleys kicking around too - that might be the way to go if my wimpy cordless can't do it and I want to use my hefty drill. Having it on the belt would take some of the stress off the bolt.

Just ordered mine today. Got it for 30 shipped, wanted to get it a little cheaper, but I was impatient. Can't wait to get it and start messing with it

Yea I think it's Grizzly. I actually ordered a Victoria too. Have you done any modifications to yours Cidah? I've read that since quality control on these things vary from model to model sometimes you'll have to add washers between the wing nut, or change out the cotter pin with a bolt, or sometimes they work just fine after adjusting the plates to the crush you want.

I have only adjusted the plates, but for my BIAB batches, the grind is more efficient than the barley crusher at the LHBS. However, when I buy grain there, I still use the barley crusher, since it has a drill on it.

I haven't modified the mill yet, I wanted to make sure that I got a heavy graded bolt for automating (didn't want to shear it). I am thinking I will probably just run it off an older crappy battery operating drill and a 1/4 or 5/16 heavy graded bolt. But i haven't taken the time to figure out what bolt it is.

The pulley would be cool, but it would be hard to center on a 1/4 inch bolt.

Seeing that thread though, I am thinking about putting a screw in to replace the cotter pin as well.

Any updates on our grain? Has it officially been ordered? Do we have an ETA?
Ok back to corona mills...

Ha - (we hijacked our own thread)

The buyer checked in with me yesterday and said still doesn't have the ~$300 cleared from Randy. Hopefully it happens soon!

I figured i was the only one who still didnt own a mill and was buying enough grain to swim in.

I was going to keep that a secret.

I am going to be building one using the two bucket method from the My Ugly Junk thread too. Got the buckets ready, just waiting to find a mill.

I actually committed to buying the grain before I had done my first BIAB batch (our order wasn't a done deal yet but I started the thread). I figured.... I am sick of extract prices. I just have to jump off the cliff. Luckily, the first batch went really well, then we closed up the deal just after I did two more batches!

So, no shame here (8 bags) ha.

Go big or go home right gents?!
