Default Grain mill station

This is my take on the grain mill station. What I wanted to do is be able to pour my grain in and turn it on and walk away and not have to hold it or pull the trigger. I also wanted it to be cheap to make and easily stored. This is what I came up with. I still have to add a router speed controller but once I do that I will be able to adjust the speed and just turn it on.

Oh, that's neat mounting it on the bottom of the lid. Makes for easy storage.

I used this over the weekend for the first time and it worked great. Still need the speed controller.

I use a 1/2" D-handle drill from Harbor Freight. Has speed dial on it and is already a low RPM drill. Works great.

I finally got the mill station done. Added a speed controller and had a buddy make me a hopper extention. I love that it is compact and mobile.

Yes got it the speed controller at HF. I even cut down the power cord on the drill so I didn't have any extra cord. The shoes will cost you 1 retirement and 1 address in a retirement community in Florida.
