My mill is sold to Sugar89 pending pickup.
if no local takers and you can (unpack the hopper maybe) get it all to adelaide for about $75 total, i'll be in. - cancel that - all sold i see
For me selling the mill was less about recovering money and more about allowing someone else to get into brewing all grain at a low entry price. I prefer the thing to be actually used by someone. I'm a bit like that, I prefer use, reuse or repurpose, over hoarding, recycling or outright discarding.Second-hand mills have been selling for $45.00-$50.00 here. For that price I would stick it in the shed. You never know.
The $50.00 you will spend and have nothing to show for it, otherwise you have a nice mill you'll never use again.....that's me.
Bribie, I would like this if still available pleeeeese!?Giveaway Marga Mill
Send me a 5kg satchel.
Served many years and the rollers are still knurled like new. Set for BIAB crush.
Marga out of the box came with a hand crank that slots into the side of the mill.
I got it straightened out and cut off to form a drill bit that I used in an Ozito variable speed corded drill on low speed. Perfect.
About six months ago the drill bit eventually reamed out the receiving female bit and was spinning. So I filled the hole with epoxy putty, jammed the drill bit back in and it worked ok, but a wee bit wobbly. So now instead of living in the drill, the shaft lives in the mill.
The bulk buy for the mini mill came up and couldn't be happier. Marga would be good for a beginner all grain brewer. Treat it carefully and you'd get a fair bit of use out of it.
Here's what you get.

On the mill, note the shaft that you fix your slow speed drill onto.
There's a clamp at the bottom that you use to attach the mill to a plank so the grain falls into a bucket. Put a big weight on the other end such as a gas bottle etc.

You don't get the big hopper at the top, too big to post. Go to Bunnings and get the gutter leafguard thingo whatisit for a few dollars.
Treat it kindly, should get a few brews out of it.
edit photo no 2 was when the bit lived in the drill not the mill.
