i use a black and decker corded drill on my mill. works great, nice drill, and it has no problem going through 20-30 lbs in a few minutes. squeeze the trigger lightly, it grinds slow

You gotta be careful with electric stuff from Harbor Freight. They aren't always a good deal.

I wonder how a bicycle chain and sprocket would work...

Mine has a 90 day return policy and they said I have 30 days to add a two year warranty to it for $9.99
