My brother in law has made me a vital chunk of All Grain equipment. Grain Mill 3 inch wide rollers with one 2.25 inch and one 1.25 inch Designed to be operated with my 3/8 inch electric drill, it has 4 bearings and can roll frozen regular barley into something resembling rolled oats. We used a oil funnel to feed the grain in. The gap is set to 20 thousand of a inch.

That looks like a 3/4" to 1" steel frame!!! She's not gonna bend anytime soon! LOL

She must weigh a couple pounds I'd say!

I know it may out last both of us. It is over 11 lbs. Without the drill attached. Just took it for its first spin out of the shop with malt. http://m.youtube.com/watch?gl=US&war...&v=a0pD52ChpHk The gap is too small it seems to be creating flour.
