Interesting variation, the end of the shaft is threaded into the auger instead of being part of it. Conceivably one could grind down the end so the plates would open further without having to add washers. But the washers are a simpler solution.

Thanks for the post.

I thought I would post my completed project here since you all inspired me so much.

I got in on a group buy of grain so I had no choice, I had to get a mill.

So I purchased all the parts and built this today.
I inserted washers on the outside bolts of the mill to get it to seat well. I do notice a slight wobble on the plate and may install a bolt to replace to pin as others have done, but i think i did enough for today.

The crush looks good for now.

Dann, looks real nice. great job.

I noticed you have a cover over your burr plates, kinda like the part of a can or something. mine didn't come with a cover over the top part of the plates.

Did you put that on? does anyone think that is required?

Not required at all, some mills have a cover on the burr plate to keep the milled grain from flying all about, some don't. Without a cover on the plate can be a little messy...if you mill indoors you will likely want something. Previous posters have done many things to direct the milled grain. It can be as simple as putting a plastic bag over the mill head, or mounting the mill in a covered bucket. see link below

Mine came with that little cover. It is just a cheap plastic shroud.

I havent actually milled a full batch with it yet so i have determined if it is worth keeping on since i have it mounted in a bucket with a lid anyways.

I am afraid with how close it is to the burr plate that is might clog up.

I installed mine in an upside down bucket and then hot glued the rim to the top of another bucket with the lid on. Cut the center of the lid out and bam... Seems pretty good but I haven't used it yet, so not sure how good it will work out...
So,I'm not worried about the cover even if I use it inside I think it will work good.
