I've not had any issue using my 18v DeWalt cordless hammer drill to power my mills. It uses the XRP batteries (came with two) that will easily go through a hopper full of grain (39# in my MM2-2.0) on a single charge. I like the keyless chuck on it since that makes using it just that much easier. While not nearly as cheap as the HF drill, it has more uses. I simply set it into the low speed range (0-500 rpm) and go to town.

True. I have a corded high speed hammer drill and 3 or so cordless drills, one of which would drive my mill. I wanted a semi permanent mount for my mill. Dedicated drill it is.

I need to mount my mill to the cart first (microwave cart, not using it for a nuke, so better to alter it to hold my Monster )... I should have enough space on the top of the cart to mount a motor later. I thought I had a motor already, but it was sold in a yard sale unknown years ago.

I use a cheap black & decker plug-in. I mounted it and use a light dimmer to control the speed.
