Oh, yeah! And just think how much fun you'll have fabbing up a hopper and housing for it! You gotta go all aluminum for that bad boy, wood just wouldn't cut it. Stainless maybe.

OK, got a mounting plate done today for mill and motor. I am terrified of this thing with this motor. If this thing got a hold of a finger it wouldnt stop untill it got to an elbow!! :shock: I will be putting on a guard.
This is the drill motor that I used:http://www.cpomilwaukee.com/drills_and_hammer_drills/hole_hawgs/1675-6.html
My Dad had an old one that he gave me. I cant find a torque rating but it is crazy!

Cool! But I want to see your malt hopper. Why tease us with the rest of that stuff and not show us your hopper? Or do you just put the malt on the plate and push it through with your fingers?
No wonder you're afraid of it. :wink:
