I finally got to taking a photo of mine in action. This is the 7th and 8th batch I have used it on.

Hand crank is just a back up, cordless drill for the heavy crushing

The plexi almost makes it look too professional. Can you add some duct tape to the edges?

I wish mine had that little cover over the crush end. Grains go flying in all directions when I used the drill, that's why I'm a hand cranker.

I think it's fitting as junk as all materials were all drop off pieces from work. Repurposing at its finest

Can't complain at all about my mill, finally got it dialed in an hit 82% efficiency. Feels so good to get over the hump of having serval down around 50%.

Hip Hip Hooray for Cheapo Mills

After reading through almost this whole thread I finally searched for "DiscountTommy" and managed to get one from that site at $25 shipped. Thanks for doing all of the leg work! A trip to home depot / some work and I'll hopefully be done with the 60% efficiently club.

Put milk jug over plates. I inverted one, cut larger opening below original mouth, and slit halfway down center. Channels grain downward. See my pics
