Varnish is dry and the Maltmill went back on the cart tonight.
I took a series of pictures so you could get the idea of how it was designed and how it went together.
This image shows the reinstallation of the JSP Maltmill, mostly where it goes.
Showing the throat of the Maltmill. Those ramps look like almuminum in the picture, but they are clear plastic (the flash reflected off them).
This shows the JSP funnel adapter (which keeps fingers out of the grindy bits)
This is the final view of the Maltmill in place. Note that there are 1/4" machine screws going from the top plate (funnel adapter) to the mill body and from the runners underneath the mill up into the body of the mill.
The motor installs with four 3/8" bolts and washers to the top of the cart. The motor mounting plate has slotted bolt holes allowing the motor to be loosened and slid toward the mill for belt installation and away to tighten the belt on the sheeves. I had to use an adapter on the mill shaft to fit the proper sheeve on it. All of these parts including the belt were purchased from Grainger. The motor has a rubber mount to absorb any shock from sudden starts or loading of the mill. The motor was sourced from eBay and already had starting capacitors installed. I don't know what that means, but I didn't want to have to learn how to install them.
This is the completed assembly. To demonstrate the scale of things I wanted to show how a 5 gallon bucket fit underneath the mill. The switch is just a standard 120 volt decorator light switch I had laying around. The funnel shown is a 5 gallon Ozarka water bottle that I pulled out of a dumpster at Lowes. The bottom was busted out of it so it wouldn't hold water anymore. Not knowing what had been in it before I washed, scrubbed and rubbed down with rubbing alcohol before actually using it.
So there you have it. Inspired by John Beere and the Deep Six Brewing Co. Using a Schmidling Malt Mill
a couple of sheeves from Grainger and a 1/3 HP motor from eBay.
I plan on "Conditioning my malt" to keep the grain dust down. We'll see how it works in the next couple of weeks.
