Need a little basic help with my ugly mill. I went to the hard wear store and got a screw to put where the handle was. Sawed off the end and attached my drill. But the screw/end of the moll is not straight. So the drill wobbles when I use it.

Any suggestions?

How long a bolt are you using...perhaps a shorter length w/ only 1/2" to 3/4" protruding would not put it as far off center and minimize the flaw in the ugly junk. The longer the bolt, the more it will wobble perhaps? My bolt only protrudes a little more than an inch...just enough to get the drill on it.

Or perhaps try a short bolt w/ the head still on, and drive the mill with a socket on the drill, coupled to the bolt, so it is not a ridgind connection and has a little play???

Perhaps the guy drilling and tapping the mill shafts was a noob or came to work w/ a terrible hangover and we are seeing his mistakes???

Where did you guys buy your Corona mills? I can't find one for less than about $40 on Amazon. I was hoping to spend about $25 at most on one of these.

I actually came across them. They have it for $25 with free shipping but theyre out of stock. I changed my search from "corona mill" to "corn grinder" and I have found quite a few more options.

I got mine off eBay for 27$ shipped. I think I searched for grain mill or grinder.

The crush looks pretty good I don't see any whole grains a titty bit more probably wouldn't hurt but if it was me I would brew with the current crush and she how your numbers are and go from there. Chopps

I dont think this qualifies as ugly junk since i used oak and birch to build it. But it was scraps i had laying around the shop and i threw it together quickly.

Cut part of an oak stair tread and then mortised a big rectangle in it, then built the chute out of birch. Simple, hopefully effective since i havnt tried it yet, but i will this weekend. I also have a Milwaukee corded drill i plan to hook up it.

Let me know what you guys think
