Motorized Grain Mills: Time to show them off!
 
I'm building my first DIY motorized grain mill this weekend and I'm looking for some inspiration. I have a Barley Crusher, 1750 RPM motor and some pulleys. I'm ready to get started, so show me what you got.

Thanks for sharing :)

I have a 10 inch pulley for the Barley Crusher pulley but it is cast iron. I was wondering if there would is a need for concern that the weight of the pulley would or cold effect the performance and life of the mill itself?

What materials are people using for their pulleys?

Starting the assembly today, any idea about the weight of the pulley/sheave? If I was to guess I would say that the pulley weighs in about 3.5#.
