Ugh. I'm there with you. At this pace it will be several years for me too.

Glad you took initiative

Very well made.....a little too much craftsmanship to be really worthy of the lower echelons of "ugly junk." Needs some duct tape, maybe some cracks and stains.

The first pic is my bucket in a bucket system and the second pic is it in a cabinet that was in my basement when we moved in.

Haha! Someone else asked me if I could ride it too! It is a electric power steering assist motor from a 04 Saturn View steering column. I've tried using several different power supplies but none can handle the amp draw so I bought a cheap battery and jumper cables so I don't always have to remember the jump box from work.

Wow, this thread is awesome. I got a Victoria mill for Christmas and mine was actually very good right out of the box. I tightened it down all the way and put a handful of grain through. It was basically coarse flour so I backed it off a quarter turn and it was perfect for BIAB. Here is my ugly junk! Christmas colors were unintentional. The string around the red bucket is holding my bag for BIAB in place, so I just grind right into it. Made my basement smell awesome!

I got my mill for Christmas. Picked up a food grade bucket at Lowes. I haven't had a chance to mill anything in it yet though.
