True that Richard...2000rpm is unreasonable for my grain mill.

I'm just going to go with the manufacturer's recommendation of 500rpm for a 6LB per minute crush....or even step it down to 400rpm and save the wear and tear..

BUT I'm still going to do it with pullys dammit!   ;)

lol thanks senior!  
I'll take pics and post them...my girlfriend has an old sewing maching table that looks ideal for mounting the crusher, motor, pulleys and nifty onoff switch, with room underneath for a bucket.

Are you using a standard barley-crusher? i.e. the two on the left here:



Where are these manufacturer's recommendations? I don't remember getting any with mine  :frazzled:

That's the one, here you go Richard:

"•The standard hopper holds an even 7 pounds and the optional large hopper holds 15 pounds. Using a 3/8 drillmotor at 500 RPM gives you a crush rate of 6 pounds a minute making the big grain bills fast and easy.
"

http://www.barleycrusher.com/barleycrusher.php

I interpret that as a recommended or "acceptable" rpm from the manufacturer.

fakr: nice; didn't see that before :)

I assumed if a drill were attached that it'd have to be limited to <60RPM to match the same behaviour as a person. Good to know.

I however will continue with the manual effort - a little exercise is good for you :P
