Got home today to find ups delivered my cheap corona mill from discount tommy. Picked up a 50# sack of 2-row for $32, and proceeded to crank out 15 lbs of 2 row for tomorrow night. I will be rigging this for use with my drill ASAP. Didn't have any bolts that fit it tonight, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna hand crank that kind of grain bill again...

13 mm metric bolt fit mine. Need an adaptor to attach a hex socket to the drill.

The bolt head eventually rounded off on mine so I just cut it off and attach the chuck to the shaft. Works fine but shakes a lot.

M8x1.25 fit perfectly. Ground 10# in less that 20 minutes. :-)

I just ground flat spots on the bolt shaft for my chuck to bite into. Been working for several years that way now.
