I plan on getting the setup so that I can add a motor to the mix, easily, later.

Higher priority is getting the venting system in place for the steam and CO from using the Blichmann burner(s)... But that will be another thread.

Those hand warmer packs are based on an exothermic chemical reaction. If oxygen can get in, can't the chemicals get out too? I've never heard of using these to vacuum pack grains, but I am intrigued.

I'm going to build a cabinet/cart for mine too in the near future. I'm also interested in possibly motorizing it at some point. No huge need for it, just think it'll be cool to have everything self-contained in one unit.
