|The motorisation kit|

|Our grain processing bench with storage shelves|
|The grain mill in action -how easy is that!|
|Freshly milled flour|
For a very professional finish, all the gear was mounted onto a solid bench (discarded by a member of the family) that also holds our oat roller. We turned the drawer space underneath into a convenient storage area for grains and equipment. The final modification needed was a cover to fit over the grinding stones to direct the falling flour downwards (instead of flying sideways). Heather made one out of an old ice cream contatiner and it works a treat.
PS. We purchased our Survival Ark Mill from Retsel in Dandenong. Their web address is www.retsel.com.au
