Has anyone mechanized their hand crank mill other than pedal power? I’m borrowing a pedal powered country living mill right now and I’m trying to decide how to mechanize mine. I’m finding, as a mom of many boys, that I am pulled away from my pioneer spinning class too often and can barely get enough flour milled & sifted for my two recipes. :)
I got a spare handle for a hand crank grain mill and cut the business end off with a hack saw. By chucking that piece up in a cordless drill I could turn the mill quite easily. The only risk was making sure I held the drill at the right angle so it didn't put a side load on the mill and wear it out prematurely.
