I have owned this mill for 15 years and it continues to do the job of cracking corn. I have sold my cows, but used it to crack corn for the calfs at reining time and to supplement my bulls feed. I made my own base from heavy steel, mounted an industrial electric 240v motor designed to work in a dusty environment. I would slowly allow corn to move directly from my grain wagon, into the grinder and catch it in a 5 gal. bucket. I also bought the fine grinding plate and the hand crank, but had no use for them once the motor was mounted. Keep it put of the rain and this will last a life time with a little lubrication and maintenance.

I read about this mill in Harvey Ussery's book,The Small-Scale Poultry Flock.According to the book Mr. Ussery uses the mill powered with a 1 1/2 powered motor to grind @2 tons of grain and peas every year. The mill and motor are mounted on a heavy work bench. I assume Mr. Ussery is satisfied with the performance of the mill or he would not have discribed and pictured it in his book which is the best of several books on poultry I have read. I will buy one of these mills as soon as I can afford it.
