    Pneumatic Bottle Capper - Just...because.

    Use an off the delay DC or AC solid state timer depending on your pneumatic valve. As soon you release the start cycle button the off delay timer will keep the voltage on for a preset time and retracts the cylinder after the time has elapsed. Click to see a Solid state DC off delay timer sample

    Motorized Grain Mills: Time to show them off!

    A few pictures showing my automated mill. Filling the hopper, milling and conveying milled grain is initiated by the brewery controller requesting grain from the grain processing system. The milled grain is conveyed with air for thirty feet into the toy brewery hopper. Multiple sensors let the...

    Motorized Grain Mills: Time to show them off!

    13.5 ft/lbs = 162 in/lbs which is more than enough. Most mills I have seen run great with 45-50 in/lbs. My mill has lot less toque. For my 52 gallon mashtun I use a 180 in/lbs motor for the mixer.

    Help Troubleshooting Honeywell Furnace Valve

    My four regulators have the vent downstream and can't be rotated. All my furnace valves require a LP kit if used with propane. The pilot's orifice needs to be changed too for propane and the pressure can be adjusted at the furnace valve.

    Yet another grain mill motor question

    http://nepsi.com/resources/calculators/motor-torque.htm Most mills should work very well with >40 LB-in ,150RPM.

    Yet another grain mill motor question

    Now do some torque calculation before you start building. 175 RPM is still too fast for your 1/12 hp motor to get adequate torque. Cheers, ClaudiusB

    Painting electric motor for grain mill?

    I brew mostly 10 gallon batches but can go for more. I have two mash tuns in use, the largest can hold 200 liters (52 gallons).

    vinegar-steel wool rusty wood finish: speeding up the reaction

    I aged a shiny new barrel a few years ago with a steel wool vinegar solution made 24 h in advance and worked great. The barrel edges and bands got a nice rustic look too. First I removed all exterior coatings from the wood and barrel. No hot iron used for the lettering.
