They both look good to me.....although your "conditioned" picture looks more like my crush, and I don't condition.

Thanks for the second set of eyes...the crush just seems a lot finer than what I'd gotten previously from Midwest/NB. But I guess that's the point of building this thing and milling yourself, huh?

Well, I finally got the rig assembled and ready for her maiden grind. Here's a pic fully assembled:


I didn't do anything spectacularly innovative; just built on wilserbrewer's design with a couple parts that the hopper rests on. If anyone wants to see more pics and some of the hardware I used, check my build gallery here: My Ugly Junk Build Gallery

Time to mill some grains!

Damn that looks good! Very nice. I might have to copy your build if mine doesn't work out, although I am sure mine wont look near as nice.

and! it's here!!! i shouldn't be this excited, but damn, i couldn't stop grinding 2 row... but i know it'll get tiring here in a few brews...



a little weird... where you guys haev been putting your bolt, this one does not have one, just a small nub that sticks into the other part... if that makes sense..

and! for the ceremonies, i got some new tubs for my grains and organized.



thanks to revvy! and everyone else in this thread... now i just gotta figure out how to make it the standard ugly... lol

It doesn't make sense, which bolt are you talking about? The one that replaces the one on the handle?

Bolt replaces cotter pin.

What starfish said, i'll try and take a picture here soon,

but where that cotter pin is on all of these, it's just a long ended bolt that goes into the other part that adjusts the depth of the crush... only way i can figure out that i can tighten that thing up without being able to ad the small bolt, is to add a washer at the end and bolt it back on...

sounds a bit confusing but i'll get pics on here as soon as i can!
