    My Ugly Junk- Corona Mill Station...

    I saw an Instructable page containing mods for corona mills, and the poster had removed the plate and cotter pin and cut threads on the shaft with a 1/2" die, and replaced the plate and pin with a nut and rubber o-ring. Just curious if anyone has tried this?

    Wire gauges for control panel?

    So 12 gauge stranded will work for everything but the wires for the elements? Which will be 10 gauge stranded.
