Default New and Improved Crankandstein 2A Grain Mill

So my grain mill was pretty much destroyed by UPS. I decided to utilize our machine shop at work and mill out some new parts on the Bridgeport.

Here are the before Pics:

Yowza! Great work... I don't think you have to worry about baby-ing it any more!

Hopefully we don't have any avid members that are in fact Babies... I only use babies to check if the water is up to mashing temps... They also work quite well to break up dough balls...

I find they also work in a pinch if you do not have rice hulls on hand

I don't have the knurling setup for the rollers, and most of the mill was already made.
