Here is my mill. I have been wanting to upgrade the base, but this one works so well I'll keep it around for a while.

The motor is mounted on a hinged base with a threaded rod to act as my tensioner. I saw this idea somewhere on this site but I can't remember where. But thanks to who ever it was!

Here is picture taken during the build phase of the cobbled up malt mill hardware for the automated brewing system, hopper on right side, screw auger to gear motor driven valley mill on top, and 3" drop tube to mash tun https://picasaweb.google.com/kevin.l...41488760211522
Here is a later picture of the system taken during testing https://picasaweb.google.com/kevin.l...67138764297570, insulation and tubing covering are not finished

I'm currently building one similar to MrH's (page 3). Cabinet is getting sanded down now and hope to have stain on it this weekend. I will post some pictures up with the stain. Didn't even get the mill or the motor yet, so it won't be a done deal for a couple weeks yet.
