The Manly Man’s Milling Machine

We recently received this great email from Country Living customer Meeghen Eaton:

Hello Mr. Jenkins,

You kindly brought one of your mills to the Grain Gathering at WSU-Mount Vernon in August, where I picked it up.

Since then the mill has been out in the shop where my husband has been working on motorizing the mill and making a cart, so the mill can be portable. He worked very hard on this project, during his spare time!

I wanted to write and let you know how much I am enjoying the mill, and to send some pictures of what my husband built 🙂

Manly Milling-2

The motor (1725 RPM, 1/4 HP) was geared down so it turns in the mid-60’s for RPM.

A timer was wired in so the mill will automatically shut off after a set time.

It’s all welded out of 1/8″ aluminum, except for the top, which is 1/4″.

The belt guards are made out of some leftover checkerplate.

We sized it to hold three full-size sheet pans, for shelves, below.

Thank you so much for bringing the mill to the Grain Gathering.

And thank you as well for the beautiful raspberry honey you brought to the bread-making class on Whidbey Island in early September (I was there, and was the lucky winner of this gorgeous honey!).

I am making some honey cookies with fresh-milled organic soft white spring flour.
Can I send you some cookies as a thank you?

Thanks again!!!
Best regards,
Meeghen Eaton
