ok, its a work in progress but here is the start.
i needed a grain mill so i desided to make one, after couple sleepless nights i desighn and engineered this beast of the mill. i am looking all over the net and i think that iam FIRST to build a wooden, 3 roller adjastible mill. please corect me if iam wrong!
the bigest chalenge was a desighning and building a adjustment controll because iam working with wood and there is not alot of room so my options are limited. plus i had to figure it out how to turn those monster rollers on my tablesaw.
i made one roller on top stashionery and two other rollers adjast to it.
here are the specs:
rollers.
4.5"/9" made from laminated red oak.
axle.
0.5" steel rod
mill body.
1"/12" maple
adjastment system.
engineered and build by me
drive.
chain and sprocket motor drive
all keep those pictures caming...

I'm going to guess a lathe?

Looks good. Are any of the rollers knurled or how are you preventing the husks from not being grabbed.
