Or some HVAC sheet metal, tin snips and a pop rivet gun.

The 7 lb hopper works for me. I really don't care if I have to load it up a few times.

Looks like CrankandStein / Monster mill web site is down. Appearently the result of a business disagreement between the mgf. dude and the marketing and sales dude. I only heard one side of the story so I won't comment.

Check this site for the Monster Mill. It's up and working.

Other mills I've seen seem to go for £200. Anyone know where to get something in the £70 range (equiv to $140, which seems to be what they are going for in America).
I'm in the same boat.. well a similar one. Check out the monster mills, you'll need to build a hopper and base, but $99 plus $38 shipping gets you in just under £70. CrankandStein doesn't mention international shipping but you could mail them.

As for my mill, I bought the B3 grain gobbler. It tanked after a year. I'm now in the market for something a little more durable.

You know, I've got an old, wired drill like that from my old man that I'll attach in your honor! Throws sparks and everything!

I'm not going to have a grain explosion, am I?

Nah...

That's one nice thing about crushing your own...less dust with transferring whole grains.

Pretty nifty looking cord you got on that bad boy BM!

Looks like it could use some more duct tape.
