Thanks for sharing I'd like to do something like this too.
The board to which the drill and mill are mounted is quite thick/dense/heavy and not prone to tipping over. I'm not sure how much crushed rain will fit into the bucket -- I know that around 30 pounds of grain can fin in my mash tun, which is where the figure comes from. I agree the hopper is taller than it needs to be, but what's the big deal about shutting it off and swapping out a bucket for the last couple of pounds of grain? That possibility is certainly a better than refilling a smaller hopper at the same time...
I'm very happy with the results and I hope others take the plunge into "letting go" of their milling process
