    My Ugly Junk- Corona Mill Station...

    Yep, I think that would work too. Definitely more elegant from a design perspective, fewer parts. I think the board would need to be wide enough so that if the mill shifted towards one side or the other of the bucket, the opposite board end would not dis-engage (i.e., slip through and fall...

    QTikiBrew, Hope these pictures of the mill mounting bucket help, one from the top, one from the bottom and one from the side. if not just reply with any other views you need.

    ANVIL FOUNDRY ALL-GRAIN BREWING SYSTEM

    My Anvil 10.5 manual 's 240 volt wiring guide specifies a minimum 15 amp 240 volt grounded plug. That should mean that the minimum wire gauge should be 14 (14-3 wire). I wouldn't run much over 10 feet with this gauge though. I'd recommend 12-3 flexibile wire (which is 4 conductor), which can...

    ANVIL FOUNDRY ALL-GRAIN BREWING SYSTEM

    I did the same, easy to move it even when it's full. I mounted a raised platform on the dolly to get a bit more off the floor for control panel access. And I learned the hard way you may need access to the reset button on the bottom. I have since drilled a decent sized hole in the platform...

    I've got one of those too -- weighs about 25 lbs, runs about 200 or so RPM, has a curved saddle you can sit on it, plus two handles to hold on for dear life. Unstoppable torque. It was my grandfather's. I don't think I need it for the corona mill though.

    ANVIL FOUNDRY ALL-GRAIN BREWING SYSTEM

    I have my Foundry 10.5 running on 240v. I've done five 5 gallon batches on it. I switched from an 8 gal GasOne kettle and a high output (10 psi?) propane burner. The Foundry on 240v really isn't much slower, if at all. I haven't timed it, but I was shocked how fast it went from tap...

    That's a great idea. Unfortunately, I threw out the cut off bottom of my bucket. The milling discs are about 1/2 into the upper bucket, so maybe I won't get much grain thrown out - but if I do I could just cut up another bucket - they're cheap on sale.

    My Ugly Junk- Corona Mill Station...

    I've used my corona for about 4 brews, first three were great, then the 4th had real low efficiency. Also, it seemed cumbersome and slow as I only used it clamped to a table top with a pan underneath it. As far as the bad efficiency, I think it got out of adjustment and had a coarse crush...

    Racetrack Post Insert & Poppet, and Liquid Tube Parts Hack

    I just picked up a few Racetrack 5 gallon ball lock kegs. They are all Firestones, which I think are the basic early Challenger model. Of course they were old and crusty and needed a thorough cleaning, from which I learned their "anatomy" and unique replacement parts issues. There are...
