If you make a hopper out of old license plates

awesome! I've gone overkill on mine and built an aluminum 18" box and hopper, motorized it and bolted it to a table! I'll post a thread on it in a few days when I get the rest of the pieces back from the metal shop!

You should have seen our first hopper. It was a cardboard budwieser 12 pack box. A wee bit ghetto, but it worked. :D

I'll post a pic later today of 'the beast', I think I can fit >50lbs in the hopper!

How do you keep the grain from falling out? ;)

I haven't figured that part out yet : ) kind of like how to post pictures correctly : (

I forgot to mention that this is next to my 15# hopper Barley Crusher for scale!
