Earlier this year I saw a thread about motorizing grain mills. I think this one was specifically about the motors from Williams Brewing.

Regardless, somebody took a typical storage bin, mounted the motor and mill to the lid which was reinforced with plywood. Put the lid on normally and the mill/motor/bin are upside down in the storage bin. To mill, take the lid off, flip it over and you're ready to go.

I ordered a motor for my mill and want to mimic that. Anybody remember who did that or what thread it was in?

Actually, I think that's a different post, but the same idea. Thanks, that gives me some ideas. I think it's even more simple than the one I saw which had the plywood all attached to the lid with zip ties (IIRC).

That seems like a great solution when you don't have room for a dedicated cabinet or cart.
