I finally finished my grain mill stand. A big thanks to Yuri, PJ, and Fred at Monster Mills. I used the Beefy Bodine for the motor, and it is MM 3 2.0 model I got the hopper from Monster too.

It runs fine as long you have the motor running before you dump the grain.

I ordered my Monster Mill last night. I just got the MM-2 but I'm glad I got the hopper from him that thing looks sweet. Fred is really cool and works with people. That mm3-2.0 looks awesome. Did you get case hardened or stainless steel rollers?

jamesnsw,

The motor that I am using is reversible so the second switch is to control that.

Elshauno,

I got the case hardened. I wanted stainless steel, but between the mill and motor it adds up fast. I give Fred great kudos for a very high-quality product and also for the fact he calls you back with answers to your questions.
