Vintage Lee S-6 - S600 OR 700 Hopper, Flour Outlet?
I just picked up a used Lee S-6 with the seller attesting to it being in excellent condition. No hopper or flour bag, as expected. Anyone know if the current parts for the S600 (if I could find them) or S700 can be made to work with the mill? I spoke with an engineer from Lee's successor company (forget the name) who agreed, the hopper doesn't seem like any big deal - no need for a controlled feed or anything like that. I understand the S6 was a closed bag and the S700 is based on a kind of skirt over a bowl; but I've modded my (brewing) mill with a chute that simply feeds into a 5 gallon bucket.
Any issues here (I know of the explosion potential - but think that is mitigated by any number of ways)?
