Hi all, does anyone have a picture of their grain mill they can post? I just purchased one, and it is in pieces. Of course because of my luck there were do specific directions for assemble, but real men dont use directions anyway.

I would like to see how the rivets look on a picture. Anyone have a cool pic I can see?

Thanks.

Its the barley crusher malt mill "homebrewers best friend" My problem is holding it together while getting the rivets in place without everything falling apart. IM not sure how to get the rivets in place and hold everything together.

Hoilding rivets in place??

Not assembled?

There is a reason that there are no directions for assembly, they are sold fully assembled. That is why there are no instructions on assembly....

Questions is, who dis-assembled it

Are there loose rivets?

ODD

Well, it came in the box unassembled. The rivets are loose and attached to nails. I have no idea why.....I can get the rivets in, but everything falls apart as I go to the next piece. I tried C clams, I tried every clamp I own, but it keeps falling apart. There must be a way to assemble this without ranting, raving or cursing profusely.

Sounds like you have a bunch of "pop rivets". Here is how to use them.

who did you buy it from? unless it was a craigslist deal or an ebay blunder, it might be good to contact the seller.

Yah, if I bought a Barley Crusher and ther RIVETS are not even installed, Id be raising hell. That is insane. Id want a refund... they are marketed as "ready to go out of the box" that is what you pay for, not all the separate components to build one on your own!
