it does look like it, but they aren't touching, took the pic with my phone... which is fine for normal pics, but of course wont show the detail that it needs lol its about a credit cards width apart though,

and here is the weird bolt without the washer on it so you can see how it connects and how it looks
Just got mine and it is also this design. Glad to know I'm not the only one!

Just wanted to show my almost finished corona mill. I haven't cut a hole yet for the grain to fall threw. Does anyone have a idea on how to direct the grain. Some kind of funnel.... I'm stumped on what to do. I have a cut up chinese take out container on it right now. But looking for a better idea. Cheers

Well, I employ the "totally enclosed in a bucket mount" (as illustrated in numerous examples, including mine, in this thread. I don't think that sort of mount would be workable with the drive system you're using on the mill.

While I'm sure your drive system is efficient, I'm not sure how durable it's going to be. If your "Corona" type mill is like mine, there's not much in the way of a bearing between the shaft of that mill and the housing, and the sideways pull is going to wear that hole out pretty quickly.

Ya know never really thought about no brearings. I'm not gonna worry to much. The steel should last a while. And if and when it goes out, guess I'll have to buy a roller mill. Thanks for the input tho.

Can you post more deets on how you connected the drive wheel to your corona mill?

I want to set one up to be pedal powered and wonder how to connect the gear.
