    I have a Crankenstien Mill I need a base/hopper for, and don't have the tools or material to put together. Will be drill powered. I am looking for someone who can supply the above and help me (or vice versa) put together. I am happy to cover (dollar-wise) materials, and will put in some of my finest to cover your time. I'm on Brissie Northside but not bothered by travel. Appreciate any help on this one.

    Got Ghetto and DIY!

    http://aussiehomebrewer.com/topic/57659-post-your-ghetto-gear-thread-the-200-hopper/?p=840812

    All you would need for this:

    Offcut of plywood or MDF
    A drill and drill bit (if the bit isn't big enough, drill many holes and hog the rest out with a chisel / screwdriver / hammer)
    A pencil or something to write with to mark the size of hole you need
    Some duct tape to seal and secure.

    (I can't claim credit for this, just found while searching)

    What's the dimensions of the top of the mill? And the centre distance of the rollers when looking from above? I am looking at getting one of these, fixed hopper only , whipped by the boys in the workshop for my mini mill.

    Actually, just after i posted this up , one of the guys rocked up with this thing of beauty, not sure how much it will hold. I received a bigger version that should hold around 15kg.

    any reason no one seems to use zinc / galv sheet folded up into a hopper ?
    i was thinking of making up something on the pan brake / guillotine at work

    is that a school workshop Bradsbrew
    those window security screens sure look like 1960's QLD ED's work :)
    the workbench does not look like 1960 / 70 qld ed but....

    My hopper holds about 200 grams the reason I made it so small as it fits inside my mill cupboard but, has anyone made a hopper with some kind of sliding shut off " gate" that allows you to lift the hopper off incase of a blockage without spilling the grains in the hopper ?
    Might help someone else with their planned build.
