Oh, I agree 100% - your solution will last forever and is incredibly strong - it will probably survive world war 3..!

I believe that a number of guys here use motors from car garage roller doors quite successfully in their grain mills.

One day I will swap out my Metabo for a fixed motor setup.

I have a 24 VDC motor to drive the windshield wipers of a truck lying around. Low speed, high torque. It might be usable.

Thanks for creating the post and adding all the component links.

Having access to a CNC and laser cutter is my wet dream. Lucky bastard!

I also considered on of those motors, but the speed is REALLY SLOW and I'm not quite sure if the torque is enough. Grinding processed malt really pushes the motors...
Pay attention to the transformer... If the motor has enough torque you might need some Amps to feed it... Trust the guy who was able to burn at least 3 transformers... :)

You are so right! Access to this type of machines really opens much opportunities. You can make professional quality MOD's. It takes time to do it well but the results are great!

Having access to those machines has an added advantage: I can reserve my "wet dreams time" for other types of fun... :D

cheers,

Lucky Bastard, that is one Pro setup. Well done.
Re CNC etc, a small workshop has been started in our city called "Maker Space". Apparently it is a world-wide concept where you join the "club" for a very modest monthly fee and then gain access to 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machines etc.
They have facilitators to help beginners to get projects started. Niels, maybe there is one near you?

Didn't know that "Maker Space" concept... There was a similar one but just with Makerbot 3D printers... Maybe the same?

In my case I work in a big group of companies that has lots of CNC's... 3, 4, 5 and 6 axis from "small" ones to some others able to machine a full sized car... Along with some 3D scanners, printers and vacuum chambers to make resin prototypes, etc, etc...

Have a look here, these are 2 of the companies http://www.distrim2.pt and http://www.dt2rmc.pt

It's like "my" private Maker Space spot! :)

Very impressive Luis. The mill is great but so is the levelling base!

Thanks.

Next I think I'll make a HOP SPIDER and probably a DIP TUBE with a fine stainless steel mesh...
