Motorizing My Retsel Mini-Ark and Review
I do my milling out in my shed. I think it's geared down to about 120 rpm's. It does warm the flour, and this is a concern to some people, but I'm not bothered by this, I figure it'll get even hotter than that when it's cooked. The burrs do get a bit uncomfortable to handle when it's been run for a while. I may slow it down to approx 60 rpm in the future, make a bigger hopper for it, and move it around so I can hang a big catch bucket from the edge of the table so I can let it run without watching it. Best $118 I ever spent; the rest of it is cobbled together from recycled parts and a few store bought odds and ends that came to another $20.
