Question for grain mill hopper build
 
2 Attachment(s)

Just received my crank and stein 2s (4 inch rollers) I am going to be building my hopper when I get off work today. I got my general design. My question is, how big should the hole be that feeds the grain to the mill? My friends mill looks to be about 8 inch rollers but there is only a 2 inch opening. Is that fine? Or can I get more grain crushed with a bigger hole? Or can that jam up my mill rollers?



Here's a picture of his.

This is what I ended up doing. It worked out pretty well. Definitely not as pretty as I hoped it to be but it gets the job done. It holds about 5lbs of grains. It's crushed the 5lbs in about a minute. SWEEEET!!!
