Repairing Stone Mill
Some time back there was discussion of the Marathon Uni Mill. I have had one since 1977 or 78 and have been using it happily ever since with never a problem. However, suddenly, one day, the stones locked up and I can't loosen them. They just got tight while milling. I turned off the mill and turned them loose bye hand, but, as soon as I turned on the motor, they locked up so tightly that I can't move them at all. The box is so well put together that, even if I remove the bolts, the glue (epoxy, I think) is so secure that I don't know to access the bar between the motor and stones. I have tried an appliance repair person who knew nothing about a stone grinding mill and couldn't suggest who to go to.
Does anyone know where I could go to get this repaired? Or does anyone know how I could go about doing it myself? I even bought another Uni mill on ebay. Unfortunately, that one got damaged in shipping and one corner of the box is broken, making it wobble. So I am still needing to know how to get it apart and back together if I replace the good parts into my good box.
I would really appreciate any suggestions anyone can give. I have lived with my mill for so long, I don't know what to do without it... all my nice wheat with no where to go, too.
