are you going to use your mill or are you selling it ?????
the reason i ask is,when i mill the corn through mine i normally give it to my mate that has chickens
but last year i did a lot of milling ,so he has a good stash for a while...
if you want you can have what i mill for you chicken if you like...its all free as well...????????
chickens should love it...

Cheers Mike doing Netley as well so not a problem, well today picked up the new cover plates must say he did a great job, this evening ive made the new oilers and covers and fixed them to the cover plate, have given the new cover plates a coat of black primer just so the blackner has a good key to stick too, just need to source some square nuts and that side of things is then complete, will put some pics up tomorrow as was getting quite dark

Abes that is looking smart mate .... The oilers do look rather smart too .... Everytime i see you using grate blackener im thinking i might give that a go ....

I know more effort to get rid of every bit of paint but you dont have to faff about with coats of paint leaving to dry rubbing down and more paint etc etc .

got a few pumps could be made into my 1st victim though Laughing Laughing
